Moving into a new house? Take a moment…

checklist-2077019_1280

Moving into a new house could be a whirlwind of excitement and nerves! A decision that brings you extreme happiness, but also adds a tinge of confusion. Are you completely ready? Have you got all the essentials together? Is your transport and settling plan in place? These are few pointers that you need to consider before moving into your new house. Here’s a walkthrough on all the essentials your checklist needs to have: –

  • Consider moving in as a good reason to weed out all the things that you haven’t used for years, which is languishing somewhere inside your house. Getting trapped in the mindset of ‘could be a future use’, could cost your precious time and money, and may also impact the freshness and vibe of your new house.

 

  • Prioritize your packing, starting with the things that you seldom use and label them accordingly. This could help you save precious unpacking time and get you going before you’re finished with unloading and settling down.

 

  • If you’re going to use a moving company, get your estimates as soon as you can. The slots could fill up quickly, considering how everyone is clamoring for the same spot either at the beginning or at the end of the month.

 

  • Start saving up on newspapers, let the hoarder in you come alive! These could be used for packaging. Also, be sure to procure small boxes against big ones, this helps to avoid heavy lifting.

 

  • Don’t buy perishables if your moving date is near. Packing a fridge full of food could leave you in the danger zone. Be sure to empty out your fridge before transporting it to your new house.

 

  • Plan an email blast to all your friends, relatives and colleagues, be sure to intimate your bank and post office about the change of address.

 

  • Moving into a new house could be quite stressful for your kids, moving away from friends and the locality could leave an impact on them. Take a stage by stage approach in informing them about the relocation. This could help them get prepared mentally and keep them reassured.

Once you have this checklist implemented, you are good to go

5 benefits of yoga in your life

Durga petals 5 benefits of yoga

The most common responses when people hear the word ‘yoga’ is ‘I always wanted to try yoga’ and ‘I could never do yoga because I can’t (insert limitation here)’.

The right response to this is always the same ‘You must always do yoga!’

It is irrelevant if you can touch your toes or not. Doing yoga has nothing to do with being flexible or strong or being able to stand still. Yoga allows every single type of person to start somewhere. Not all who practise yoga are yogis or gymnasts or dancers. Yoga enthusiasts are simple people wishing to achieve objectives such as controlling their breathing, increasing their flexibility and even finding some precious moments of peace.

Some yoga techniques are meant for seasoned yoga practitioners who push their mind and body to the limit and can be extremely taxing both physically and mentally. For example Ashtanga yoga combines strength, cardio, as well as flexibility with practises lasting 75 to 90 minutes.

Yoga has been known to bring instant joy and relief. Clear examples of people being unhappy and anxious have turned to yoga to achieve goals of satisfaction and happiness while being able to run faster, complete somersaults, hold their breath for longer than 2 minutes and being able to hold their own upper body weight using only their upper body.

Other benefits of yoga include:

  1. Drop in anxiety levels – A study in 2010 showed practising yoga three to four times a week rose levels of chemicals in the brain responsible for fighting off depression and anxiety.
  1. Less stress – An Ohio State University study showed long term yoga has benefited practitioners recovering from stressful events even quicker.
  2. More control over medical conditions caused by stress – Researchers have theorised that yoga could be effective in treating individuals with stress-related psychological and medical conditions such as anxiety and high blood pressure.
  1. Increased control of balance – Stroke, the American Heart Association’s magazine, stated yoga practised post-stroke can help improve balance and reduce fear of falling while improving the patient’s quality of life.
  1. Reduced levels of back pain – Pains in the lower back affect people of all ages. Studies show 12 weeks of yoga had an even higher effect than standard medication in patients suffering from chronic back pain.

What better encouragement for practising yoga than a dedicated space available to you at your residence. Durga Petals’ allocated area, Panchayat, is designed for yoga sessions and various workout lessons in an enclosed area within the premises. Panchayat is located along the western wall and right beside the gate to ensure yoga enthusiasts can head to work post workout.

With the benefits and location drawn out for you, what is holding you back from seeking instant physical strength and mental relaxation?

6 reasons your commute is hurting you

ZAM_Durga_Tired Commuting Banner_09Jun15

Bengaluru’s Outer Ring Road is a daily swarm of sweat, blaring horns, heat, traffic and vehicles of every size manoeuvring gaps and green lights trying to reach offices, hospitals, schools and malls. Known at the IT Corridor of Bangalore, the ORR serves as an 8 hour stop over between long commutes for Bangaloreans travelling to and from work. Besides the financial costs, commuting eats into time we could otherwise be spending with loved ones ,creating, reading or anything else we like.

We lose more than just time and money commuting. A closer look at the high costs of commuting can help us make certain decisions like living nearer to our workplace:

  1. Stress and commuting go hand in hand

 

Longer commute equals higher levels of stress. The icing on this predicament is commuting being a reliable source of stress, we are forced to do it. We spend most nights thinking of the next morning’s drive to work instead of focusing on getting the much needed rest and relaxation.

 

  1. Disrupting sleep cycles

 

Unless commutes include drivers, carpooling or self-driven cars of the future, commuting specifically cuts into much needed sleep time. As one can’t sleep and drive, one needs to wake up earlier and head to bed earlier in order to take on long commutes.

 

  1. A lonely affair

 

Even while carefully negotiating masses of humans and vehicles along Outer Ring Road, the experience is lonesome. One almost never has a commute companion with which to chat with. As carpooling is not a common practise, most traverse Outer Ring Road on their own on our own. Social isolation can have disastrous effects on our health and happiness with studies showing it linking to a lack of intelligence, late development of dementia, risk of early death and a basic lack of social skills.

 

 

  • Unpleasant commute

 

 

A recent paper by Princeton University showed women found commuting in the morning to be the most unpleasant thing to do on a regular basis. Taking into consideration that one needs to do this twice a day, every single day just shows how much of an illness we have chosen to accept.

 

  1. Telecommuting

 

The general belief is that telecommuting means little or no work gets done at home. This is slowly changing with many Indian companies realising the advantages telecommuting has for productivity and the bottom line. Advantages of telecommuting include drop in equipment and infrastructure costs, high retention rates, flexible schedules, better for the environment which also results in better CSR ratings for the company as well as more family time and higher productivity.

 

  1. A change in perception and reception of commuting

 

Perception is directly related with stress. Instead of acting outwardly towards other drivers cutting in front, choosing to ignore the situation and smiling can have positive effects on one’s mental health. Succumbing to the temptation of letting other bad drivers get a hold of one’s positive outlook does nothing but add to the growing list of headaches one has to deal with through the day.

 

A simple and easy way of reducing your commute to and from Outer Ring Road daily is to live nearer your office. With large MNCs such as Samsung, JPMorgan and Wells Fargo having offices in the IT Corridor, it makes perfect sense for their employees to take the decision to live nearer to work. This decision serves well in the long run as you can begin and end your day with high productivity, eliminate stress and heart diseases, spend more time with loved ones and bring in better results at work. What could be better than your new home on Outer Ring Road offering you amenities that help boost productivity and make the most out of your family time?

Why work-life balance is important for you

Work/life balance

The cost of living in a 24/7 world

Thanks to technology, people live improved and empowered lives. From healthier lives to access to unimaginable amounts of information, advancements in technology has changed the way people live their lives. These same advancements mean people are able to leave office but still get their work done on the go. Technology has helped blur the lines between work and play. When one’s boss sends an email or a text at 11 at night the employee is forced to take time out from their personal lives and answer it. It becomes unclear when they must put away the laptop or switch off the phone and make time for family, friends and hobbies.

What used to be a forty hour a week job has today evolved into a sixty hours a week job. Employees in such scenarios will start to feel stressed and less motivated to bring in results. Also while maintaining a work life balance one needs to ensure their working from home is uninterrupted.

Moderation being the key

Work-life balance means setting priorities for work and career. While today’s society and advancements in technology allow people to be more productive and efficient with their time while on the go, neglecting one’s health or lack of time spent with friends and family can be detrimental.  Spending too much time at the office or commuting makes people become less social, less efficient in general, more difficult to work with and prone to health problems such as stress and burnout.

People these days consider spending 2 to 4 hours daily commuting to and from work a necessary burden and don’t realise the harmful effects it can have both in the long and short run. A shorter commute time ensures better productivity and better work-life balance. One can achieve this by living nearer to their workplace.

When commuting affects work/life balance

An average worker’s commute to work last 25.5 minutes which is 51 minutes spent commuting a day. That adds up to 204 hours a year spent on the road. This daily back and forth is known to have negative effects on your health. Health issues are known to arise:

  • Rise in Blood sugar – driving for distances over 10 miles one way has been linked with higher blood sugar which can lead to diabetes.

 

  • Rise in Cholesterol levels – driving the same 10 miles daily has also been linked to rising cholesterol levels which is a sure sign for heart problems.

 

 

  • Spikes in Blood pressure – Studies done by the University of Utah showed when commuters placed in a scenario were told they were late to a meeting and had financial motivation to be there on time. Half the participants were made to travel through high density traffic while the other half travelled through a less congested environment. The commuters through more intense traffic showed higher levels of stress and high blood pressure too.

 

 

  • Regular backaches – Slouching in a bus or car seat has extremely detrimental effects on your posture and back. Daily commuters are twice as likely to report neck aches and back spasms.

 

  • Your sleep suffers – The Regus Work-Life Balance Index for 2012 showed people commuting for over 90 minutes daily way reported, a lower quality of sleep and higher levels of tiredness. Halving your commute will have a positive effect on your sleep patterns and help you relax and de-stress better.

Having a healthy body, mind and soul should be a top priority for anyone living in an urban setting these days. While you may be driven to achieve results, follow a plan marked out for you in your career and accomplish a lot in a very small amount of time, prioritising a work-life balance is crucial. Changing your commute and choosing to live near work is one of the best steps you can take towards staying healthy, productive and being a better friend and family member.
