Eco-Friendly Ganesh Chaturthi 2019

  • Drapes and colorful curtains

The first idea to have some fancy sarees and dupattas and hang them behind the idols of Ganpati. To make the pandal look more vibrant & beautiful, decorate your pandal with strings of lights and flowers. The color of these curtains or saree should be matched with the theme.

  • Plants and leaves

Environmentalists rejoice! From last few years, we have opted the concept of eco-friendly Ganpati decorations and similarly this year, you can go with the same idea of going green. Decorate your house and pandal with plants & to make it more beautiful, add bamboos, stick, flowers, etc.

  • Flowers

The next idea in the list of creative & innovative ideas for the decorations of Ganpati Pandals is to decorate your houses/pandal with flowers. Choose from a variety of fresh and pure flowers of different colors and arrange them in beautiful patterns around the mandap. Made the long strands of flowers and hang them behind the idol of Lord Ganesha.

  • Coloured Paper and mirror

The next innovative idea/theme for eco-friendly Ganpati decoration is to use some colourful papers and work of mirror. On this Ganesh Chaturthi, use vibrant color chart patterns and makes some shapes of flower, fans, circular and half-circular pinwheels, etc. and put them behind the idol.

  • Rangolis

I like this idea and I always favor making Rangoli in the festival like Diwali. The same idea can be used in Ganpati Utsav as well. Use eco-friendly color to make beautiful Rangoli in the pandal and put some flowers around it to make it more beautiful.

6 Ways to Relieve Stress in an Hour Or Less



With hyper-connectivity in today’s day and age, stress is inevitable and uncontrollable. With more than half of the world’s population under pressure, and not knowing how to get out of this toxic cycle, a vast majority of the population has started to experience the side effects of stress. Staying under constant stress is like opening the gateways to different physiological and psychological diseases. In my case, the symptoms have ranged from headaches, severe back pain, anxiety, and depression to even chest pain at times.

With hectic routines, it has now become impossible to take out more than a few hours to relieve stress. I used to find the solution to my stress at the end of a bottle, but that contributed to different health problems. It was then that I realized that I had to make significant lifestyle changes. Here mentioned below are a few tips that helped me with stress management and with turning my life around.

1.     Cut Back on Social Media

In the present-day and age, we spend most of our day on our phones for one reason or another. Unlike TV channels that you can turn off, social media bombards you with information that you might not want to know. While it is a good habit to stay up to date, certain events are out of our control and knowing about them won’t make a difference. Instead, it will cause stress. I started cutting back on social media use throughout the day, and the results that I saw were miraculous. Not only did my stress levels decrease drastically, but I also had a more positive outlook on life.


6 Ways to Relieve Stress in an Hour


2.     Marijuana Strains

While the word marijuana might cause your pre-existing bias to arise, you should keep reading. There are different strains in the market that have been medically approved by the FDA for various stress-related illnesses. While it might be hard to believe, depending on the strain that you choose, you can get the extra energy you need to get through the day. You can also choose a strain that can help you relax and go to sleep, reduce weight as well as anxiety levels. Some of the best marijuana strains that you can try are AK-47, purple space cookies strain, blue dream and more.


Top 6 Ways to Relieve Stress in an Hour


3.     Avoid Toxic People

Toxic people are another major reason for stress. Social media has made it easier for people to bully others without facing repercussions. You should try to disconnect from people that induce stressful emotions. Sometimes people might not be toxic to you, but their stress might rub off on you, and you might face undue and unnecessary stress throughout the day.


Best Ways to Relieve Stress in an Hour


While it is a humane and empathetic thing to be there for people under duress, you shouldn’t guilt-trip yourself if you think you need to cut back. If you’re not in optimum mental condition, you won’t be of any use to any of your friends either. Remember that you need to be at peace to help other people.

4.     Keep a Journal

Writing down what you feel can be an effective way of catharsis, and it can help you out a great deal. Most of the times, we feel stressed out because we can’t express our emotions, for example, anger, love, hate, and irritation. If you keep a journal with you at all times, you can vent whenever you need.


6 Ways to Relieve Stress in an Hour

I used to feel stressed when something went wrong at work, and I couldn’t stand up for myself, and I had to stay quiet because I knew that I needed the job. It was then that I started this practice and it helped. Even more stressful than being wronged is when you don’t have any good comebacks at the moment, and when you’re about to relax, your mind suddenly goes in an overpower mode. Writing down about what happened and comebacks that came to my mind helped with the clarity of my thought process and contributed to my outspoken personality.

5.     Don’t Strive for the Impossible

Always remember that you’re human and not superman. Unlike him, you can manage a full-time career and save the world from its ultimate doom. Set realistic and achievable goals for yourself and strive to attain them. Most people end up being their own worst bully when they can’t manage to get the work done. Remember there are a limited amount of hours in a day and there is only so much that you can do in 24 hours. If you have realistic goals, you’ll be at peace and be more productive at work rather than just dreading the day and letting it pass by.


6 Best Ways to Relieve Stress in an Hour


6.     Intimacy

With the increase in social media connectivity, people are now more alone than ever. Loneliness is a leading cause of stress and can contribute to unhealthy mental conditions. While people have hundreds of friends and followers online, they are disconnected from the people around them. With apps dictating every part of our lives and telling us who to date, when to have sex, who to hang out with, it won’t be much longer before we end up losing control over our lives and becoming the robots we all fear will one day take over


Top 6 Ways to Relieve Stress in an Hour


Remember to take time out for friends, family, and loved ones, spending time with them can be an effective stress buster. Spend the weekend at your parent’s house or have a surprise date night with your partner. Try to share the feelings that you have for one another in order to be at peace.

The above-mentioned steps have helped me a lot, and I hope they help you too. Sometimes in order to get back into life, you need to disconnect from the people around you. Remember that it isn’t selfish to want something for yourself. You should make decisions based on what is good for your mental and physical health. While people may take it the wrong way, your loyalty first lies to you, and then to the people around you. If you aren’t in good health, people around you will also get annoyed and irritated, so you should try to manage your stress before you start socializing.

We keep talking about global warming, climate change, pollution, water scarcity and many more serious problems related to the mother earth.  I know, we all want to protect the environment but we are knowingly or unknowingly harming the environment. 

10 Ways To Protect The Environment


Here in this article, we are going to share 10 ways to save the environment when you are at home, office or roaming in the society.

Before sharing various ways (10 or more ways) to protect the environment, we would love to speak about Carbon Footprint, the major factor behind this climate change.  In this article, we would cover below-listed topics.

1.            What is Carbon Footprint & how it is related to climate change?
2.            How can we calculate the carbon footprint?


What is Carbon Footprint & how it is related to climate change?

The total emissions of greenhouse gases like Carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) & water vapor in the environment usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide are called Carbon Footprint.


Most of our daily life actions whether we drive a car or cooking food generate carbon emissions. The greenhouse gases in the atmosphere act like a mirror and reflect heat radiation to the earth which would otherwise be lost to space. More the concertation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, more the heat energy reflected the earth. The increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere warm the earth & Sea. This is called global warming or climate change.

We will share the detailed procedure to calculate your carbon footprint in the next post.


What are the best 10 ways to save the environment at home& office?

We have now understood the concept of carbon footprint and how it leads to global warming. The next thing is to understand, how could we contribute to the conservation of our mother earth. Here in this post, we are going to share 10 simple ways yet very effective ways to save the environment.


Quit smoking

How to help the environment at home

It is needless to explain how dangerous cigarettes are for your health. Not only us but also tobacco manufacturing companies are aware of this fact and while selling tobacco products, they are saying

“Tobacco products are injurious to your health”.  
The next point is when people stub out cigarettes, most of them do not throw it into a bin causing littering in the surroundings. Social Posts advises you to stop smoking else do your duty to protect the environment. Throw the cigarette butts in dustbin only. It is mandatory to mention here; smoking is also responsible for Air Pollution.


Optimize your water usage wisely

10 ways to save the environment

We keep listening about water scarcity in India and if we continue with the same water consumption pattern, it is very likely possible the unavailability of drinking water in a few upcoming years.  The best ways to save water at your house are as follows:

1. Explore your house and examine all the water taps time to time. In case of any leakage, ask the technician to repair or replace the same with a new one.

2. Nowadays, it is very common to have water purifier (RO) at home and to get drinking water from RO, RO wastes so much water (to get 1 Ltr. Of drinking water, there is wastage of 2~3 ltr.). Collect this water and use that water for some other activities of your home like cleaning the floor, utensils, bath, and many more.



3. Optimize the usage of water while bathing, shaving, brush, etc.

4. Save every drop of water for the better tomorrow.


Put some Air Purifying Plants at the roof

Ways To Save The Environment

Sometimes, Tree plantations are not possible nearby to your house due to less space, especially in the urban cities where an individual has very less space to survive. The best way to tackle this situation is to put some air-purifying plants at your roof. It will help in a better environment.

Optimize your electricity usage wisely

This is the next step among the top 10 ways to save the environment and very effective if we implement properly. If you navigate your house, you will find several types of electrical equipment like bulbs, television, heater, inverter, fridge, washing machine, fans, cooler, AC & many more at your home. Running all these appliances are one of the major reasons for carbon footprint generation so run appliances only in case of need. Switch off the appliances when you leave the place.
