This morning I had four telephonic conversations before 10:00 am in the morning. All four had different subject, different people and all ended in a BITTER note. I sat down to analyze what happened? Was that a freak coincidence or it’s a pattern – i.e. if you begin well you end well or when you begin badly you end bad. Or I carried feelings and emotions of my first bitter engagement into my subsequent engagements. Well one thing was certain I was dragging my first experience into subsequent experiences.
So what is the solution? Take the cue from KITKAT advertisement – “TAKE A BREAK,” yes I took a break – had a cup of tea, okra stuffed sandwich and smiled back. Many a time in our life we believe …….

- I AM BORED: Simple Solution: Break the monotony and do something different during the day or at that particular time. May be take a walk, call up your loved one, take up dance class, go for a haircut or body massage, practice Pranayama for the next 20 minutes and clear up clutter in your mind.
- I AM UNHAPPY: Simple Solution: Make others happy, complement someone, wish someone happy birthday, congratulate someone on promotion or job well done. Or better still volunteer for helping others.
