After my post about how I was going to therapy, there were two questions I got: 1. Can you share the number of your therapist?Sure! Scroll down for more details or Ctrl+F ‘Mpower’ on this page 🙂 2. How should one choose a therapist/mental health professional? And that is what this post is about. Many … More Mental Health | How to pick a Therapist
The conversations about Mental Health Awareness on Social Media have spiked in the last 24 hours since the news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide became public information. And while the conversations are extremely relevant and necessary, I noticed that most posts have the same message. “Feel free to reach out to me. I’m here to … More 10 Ways you can Unknowingly Save Someone’s Life.
Here, I am with episode 2 of #GupshupwithLaddoo, that too, within a month of the first episode. 2020 is already looking better than every other year, LOL! At the start of this conversation, I had a very specific topic in mind. Laddoo had already finished dinner, had a bath, brushed her teeth, and was ready … More Gupshup with Laddoo PODCAST | Ep. 2 – Book Discussion: The Teeth Bugs and The Bunny by Rashmi Chand
What do you do when you have a chatty pre-school-er? Well, you have fun conversations with them! They’re not always fun, though. Sometimes, they drag on. Most times, you have to say the same things over and over again, until you think that they’ve got the point, and even then, it is likely that they … More Gupshup with Laddoo PODCAST | Ep. 1 – Preparing for solo-parenting
Most of my stress comes from things not going according to my plans. If stress was the only thing that happened as a result of this, bad as it is in itself, it wouldn’t be the worst thing. But that’s just not me. The stress leads to irritation and my entire mood goes for a … More #WordoftheWeek2020 | Week 6 – FLOW
January 3, 202012:15 PM These days, my reading chair is in the balcony most of the time (as can be seen the picture below) because that’s where I prefer to sit and read or write. I keep it right in front of the wall which has appeared as a background in many of my photos … More Fallen & Broken | #ConversationswithLaddoo
This is a picture of a chocolate éclair and donut from Mad Over Donuts, bot of which went into my tummy after a super relaxing facial session last weekend. And sadly, this is the only picture I have of the guilty pleasures I indulged in over the last seven days or so. Sorry, Elina @dietfunda_official. … More Week 5 RECAP – Embrace, Enjoy, Eat | #WordoftheWeek2020
Laddoo doesn’t like her hair left open. This photo is an exception because of the hairband. And even that lasted only till her just-washed hair dried up. Then it was back in a pony tail. 🙄 “Baandh do, baandh do,” she’ll say [Tie it up, tie it up] as soon as I touch her rubber … More I’m NOT Pretty | #ConversationswithLaddoo
In my previous post I Documented the Death of my Diet. Now obviously, it wasn’t titled THAT, and I didn’t mention anywhere (at least not in detail) that my diet went for a toss, but it did and allow me to explain how. This may sound very privileged, but having maids who don’t show up … More #WordoftheWeek2020 | Week 5 – EMBRACE, ENJOY, EAT.
In the spirit of documenting, here’s a day by day recap of the Week 4 of 2020. 🙂 Week 4, Day 1 Wednesday, January 22, 2020. I was much more relaxed than usual this day right from the time I woke up because Sandeep was home. He had worked on Saturday, so a comp-off was … More Week 4 Recap – DOCUMENT | #WordoftheWeek2020
The whole reason I created an online profile and became ‘Being Mamma Bear’ was… well, to be able to share pregnancy updates with strangers, anonymously, because we had told only family and close friends, and didn’t want to make this life-update ‘public’ before the baby was born. But then after Laddoo’s birth, once everything was … More #WordoftheWeek2020 | Week 4 – DOCUMENT
This week I could not do what I set out to do. My word for this week was to ‘Create’ and I had set out some specific goals for myself and I just couldn’t do it. And even though I didn’t create what I had in mind, it doesn’t mean I didn’t create AT ALL. … More Week 3 Recap – CREATE | #WordoftheWeek2020
