What’s in Your Heart? – The Power of Compassion

Cowshed As A Classroom & With Rs.800, He Started With 4 Students, Today He Teaches 500 Students for Free!


How often do we come across change makers who really want to bring a huge difference in the society? It is pretty evident there are only a few who foresee and get things done.Uttam Teron, an unsung personality from Pamohi, a tribal-dominated village in Guwahati, took upon himself to educate the illiterate and uneducated lot from the village. There is nothing you cannot achieve when you have oodles of passion for a particular thing. This worked in the case of Uttam Teron. Teaching was his call and henceforth, in the year 2003 he set-up Parijat Academy at a cowshed with a mere sum of Rs 800 and began with the first four children.

Tip 5 – Putting the colour into Menopausal Fatigue

image..Another weird symptom of the dreaded menopause is fatigue. One minute were planning a heavy night out with long lost friends and the next it’s cancelled for a night in with PJs and a cup of hot chocolate. Are you feeling me ladies? This one can feel debilitating but did you know, colour plays a major part in menopausal symptoms? It’s true! I’ve tried it and it works. If you find yourself in that mode where you can’t seem to get motivated, where you don’t just want an extra 10minutes under the duvet – you want another 3 hours, wear strong colours. Psychologically, colours like orange and reds put that energy and warmth back. If you’re not used to wearing such colours, start off with one garment or an accessory. You’ll be amazed how different you feel.

Menopausal Musings – Overcoming the Urge to Kill -Tip 4 – Kindness & Compassion

images mood

The title of this post is meant to be humorous but as most ladies know, it’s often not too far off the mark. The menopause often leaves us feeling like strange aliens moved in whilst we weren’t looking and tampered with our moods. Believe me! you’re not alone. One day, I got up to go to the loo, and in a period of 5 minutes came back in a vile mood. Like a big dark cloud looms and there’s no hiding from it. Well I’ve finally mastered the cloud of darkness, and ladies I can tell you….self compassion is the answer. We all get these moods during menopause, but most of the time nobody understands because we don’t give them chance to. We go around acting as if everything’s hunky dory, so it’s no wonder people get confused when we suddenly rock up with gnarling teeth.  Tip 4 is about being kind to ourselves, saying no when we don’t want to do something and getting those early nights. If you want to eat chocolate eat it & if you don’t want to wash the dishes that particular evening don’t. This isn’t about neglecting your tasks, it’s about cutting yourself a bit of slack at a time when your body is going through major changes. It’s worked for me but at first I have to say it wasn’t easy. People thought I was being anti social but there comes a point where you have to come first ladies so let this be your point and they’ll soon get used to it!

Let me know how you get on I’d love to know
