Developing Happy Behaviour

A Child's heart is just like a blank page, u can write anything on it. So its important that first of all we change our attitude. Like if he notices ur each & every little thing then it can be harmful for him. Here i am giving tips to create a well behaviour in ur child..

# Make them Self Dependent:

Generally mothers love n pamper their child a lot that's why she tries to do all sort of work for them. Like making them eat with her hands so that the child don't get dirty. If the child is not doing his homework then she do it for him. And such things prevents him to take interest in the activities which r to be performed by him. According to child specialists child should be allowed to do his own work. And slowly he become self dependent.

#Do not Neglect their Mistakes:

If the child is telling a lie, don't neglect it. If he speaks unkind words, then with love try to make him understand that such words should not be spoken. For example if one day he brought a pencil of another student then he should be taught to return it the very next day. With this he will be able to differentiate between good n bad.

#Make him disciplined:

A child should learn to be disciplined. Instead of throwing his belongings here n there he should learn to keep them on their place. When u r visiting ur friend or relative he should not try to touch the things without their permission. There should be proper management of the time for playing, studying n watching t.v. Those children who were disciplined from their childhood are emotionally very strong.

#Allow them to make friends:

According to child specialists if a child is allowed to play with other children then this will develop a sense of friendship inside him. In future this feeling helps them to be good citizens.

#Love them a lot:

If u r expecting for the second time, it doesn't mean that u stop loving ur elder kid. Birth of second child create insecurity for the first child as the centre of attraction is the second baby. And in that way the elder child starts to feel alone n sad. That's why his mood starts to swing n make him full of anger. So at that time he wants more love.

#Carefully Listen him:

When a child starts going to school, he gets a new atmosphere. And he wants to share his happiness n sadness with his parents. If u tell him that i don't have time to listen to u then he will start feeling alone. According to child specialists u should try to listen ur child carefully n give him reply also.

The Masks of comedy n tragedy are well known & are signs of theatre even is smiling or laughing & one is frowning or howling in misery. It generally describes the balance of emotions...Some persons do not have control over their emotions, they think that their life is very miserable even though they have every thing that a person should have to life happily. They think that the burden of the whole world is on their shoulders. They don't thank God for the things they have but they generally complaints for not having the things that others have. I just wanna say that why a person can't be happy with what he has?
The mantra to live happily is just try to accept the life as it comes. If we don't have obstacles in our life, then there will be no enjoyment in living such a life where everything comes surved in your plate. Try to see the person who is not having the things that u have...Try to accept the things n always thanks God for giving u so much..Just think of such persons who can't see, hear, smell, speak or feel....u r not a handicap then why to blame God ...He had given u everything then why r u so unhappy with ur life. Please do remember this line noone wants to be unhappy with a person who cries for everything, everyone wants to be happy with a person who himself is happy with his life.

Focus On The Positive Attributes
Before marriage everyone try to be big lovers like the Sohni-Mahiwal, Shiri-Farah & of couse like Romeo-Juliet. But after marriage that passion comes to an end slowly & steadily. As after marriage the responsibility increases & the time u spend with eachother before marriage decreases. Once the initial rush of hormones wears off, its easy to start seeing the other person & rather unflattering eyes that don't really make for good news. Try to look at the good part also, before marriage what u liked in ur betterhalf, do u remember that? Now try to see him in new prespective & fall in love with him again. Admire him everyday & stay in love. If u liked the muscled hunk man, or u like his green eyes try to find new things like how he cares for u when u fall ill, he's doing this hard work only for u, see how he provides for ur every need. Look at the positive attributes & u will start loving him again.

Just think once what u r doing here if he don't loves u, u might be somewhere else. And we all are here for love. Try to give more, nothing will be going with u only that goes is the love u spread.


Sometimes we forgot the phrase that we had learnt in our childhood which is
"First Weigh Than Say".
Spoken words can't be retrieved. One need to be careful in saying anything to anyone whether its ur family member, friend, worker, maid or anyone else. Try not to hurt any ones feeling with ur words becoz once we speak without thinking that show how much bitterness is in ur heart. In that case even "Sorry " can't do anything. Words can hurt feelings as well as destroy relationships. Always try to talk less, say more. And what u say have some weight. Words have that much power that can make rich poor n poor rich. The one who knows how to talk is the one who can win the heart of everybody. Talk that much only which is required. Try to be a good listener.
Don't try to interfere in between others talk. This one makes the other end feel neglected, rejected, let down, disheartened & embarrassed. Listen to feelings not words.

All About Base

First of all use a gel base so that everything go on smoother & stay longer. It is to be applied with sponge & u don't have to use ur fingers.

Which one is ur Shade?

Generally people try foundation shade on the back of their hands but the shade of ur hand is different from that of ur face. So apply the foundation shade on ur face near ur jaw line. Right shade is the one that disappears into ur skin. Most of Indian skins have yellowish tone so choose the yellow toned foundation.

Applying foundation is also an art. Mix foundation with honey milk. Use sponge to apply the foundation. It should be applied from ur jaw line, always put some on ur ear also. Apply it in a downward way. Use fingers to apply foundation on the areas which are neglected.

Handle Dark Circle

U can hide ur dark circle with the help of foundation & concealer. Use a pinkish shade of concealer. Use ur ring to dot ur eyes then gently apply a fine layer of foundation on it.

Radiance Glow

Mix ur foundation with other illuminating lotion to create more radiance. Use ur finger to apply foundation, finish by using a brush to dust some radiance powder lightly over the check bones, brow bones, bridge of nose.

Flaw Fixing

To fix ur flaw use yellow toned concealer apply dot on the spot, blend it with ur small finger & set with dusting powder.

Fix Wrinkles

U can fix wrinkles with anti ageing foundation this will soften the appearance of lines. Put some moisturiser straight on to ur deepest wrinkles. This will help u look younger.

The baby doesn't need anything not even water for first 4-6 months. Breast milk provide adequate nutrition n immunity for the baby.
Baby should have both types of milk fore milk as well as hind milk. Fore milk is rich in carbohydrates, vitamins & protein that helps to quench the thirst. Hind milk is rich in fat & calories. U should allow baby to keep suckling from one side until he leaves the breast on his own.

Bonded Forever

Everyone falls in love now or then but falling in love is the easiest part of deal n staying in love happily ever after is the toughest part. So here i am mentioning 3 ways to remain happily with your loved ones.

  1. Trust : The very first thing is trust if u trust each other n giving each other their space that will work wonder. Never ever try to find out what they r doing when u r not around. Also try to be a trust worthy person.
  2. Respect : Love blosoms when we show respect. Always respect each other in public as well as in private. Respecting each others individual identity will create a positive atmosphere around u.
  3. Support : Always support each other in good n bad times this will help u both to give ur 100% at work. And it also signifies that his or her dreams r also important to u like ur own.


What is a life? Life is a puzzle no one can easily understand it. Life is not always bed of roses for all but actually life is full of compromises n choices. Sometimes we have to compromise for mom n dad, for brothers n sisters n sometimes for our children. we have to make choices in good n bad. Like if we ill-treat a person, we choose to be ill treated in return. In our life we will get what we gave to others. Life is full of beauty so live your life to its fullest potential. As James Dean quotes
"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today"
