4 Mind blowing ways to make your Diwali extraordinary
This Diwali, be different. Don't be one of those who jumps at the very mention of crackers. Don't be somebody who is eagerly waiting to burst loads of crackers.
How about being a cracker yourself?
No, we aren't telling you to burst!
Being a cracker means being full of energy. Burst with energy, happiness, and prosperity. Now, the big question: How do you do that?
This is no rocket science. You can do it. In fact, anybody can do it. But before that, do some shopping. Diwali is round the corner and there is nothing in the world better than shopping that which relaxes the mind. Once you are done (are we ever done with festive shopping, eh?), it's time to work towards making your Diwali extraordinary.
This Diwali, be the "firecracker"
Forget those firecrackers that pollute the atmosphere and convert into dangerous smog after the festival. Forget the loud blasts that make poor animals shiver with fright and the elderly get annoyed.
Remember global warming and the hazards of pollution. Remember everybody has the right to live peacefully and happily during festivals.
When you do all of the above you are ready to become a "fire-cracker" yourself.
- You ignite the "fire" to stop polluting your city. You get the desire to create a cleaner environment during Diwali. This fire is without smoke and lets people breathe better.
- You become the "cracker" when you pump yourself up with energy. This happens when, instead of stuffing yourselves with unhealthy foods, you go healthier and lighter this season.
Why not take another look at your lifestyle?
- Are you active?
- Are you fit?
- Do you meditate?
- Are you calm?
If yes, give yourselves a treat because you deserve it!
If you say "no" to any of the above, worry not. This is Diwali. We don't want you to be disheartened. Chill! There's still time for the D-Day. So, you can prepare yourselves for becoming a fire-cracker.
1. Start getting up early
Wake up by 5 in the morning. Okay, 6 will do. Nope? Then make sure you do not sleep after 7 am.
Seasons are changing. Mornings are pleasant. This is the best time to start a new habit. Do you have any idea why Navratri is celebrated at a phase when seasons change? Why do people fast for 9 days? The body changes too with the change in season. Fasting detoxifies your body and gives it a chance to rejuvenate. It is also the best time to begin new habits.
Just focus on the breath; don't stress much about meditation. Inhale deeply. Exhale fully. Do this for 5-10 minutes and you just meditated! Think nothing. Do nothing. This is the crux of meditation.
3. Exercise. Do yoga
The Tree Pose is a great full body stretcher. It opens the root chakra. When your root chakra is open, your other chakras are stimulated. This is an essential step towards becoming the cracker and igniting the fire in you.
4. Start eating healthy food
Reduce the amount of junk you put inside your stomach this festive season. Your body will thank you for that.
Just do this much. By the time the D-Day arrives, you will be glowing and bursting with energy.
Get your Vastu right
There are times when you do all things right, yet things go wrong. You meditate, do exercise, wake up early fresh and happy, and eat healthy, yet you feel unwell. Your mood swings put the pendulum to shame.
If this is your case, maybe you are experiencing Vastu problems.
This Diwali, Vastu your home.
Vastu is nothing but the way energies interact with each other. If the Vastu of your home is wrong, energies clash and create negativity, even blockages. This can hinder your progress. It can repel "Laxmiji" or the Money Goddess. It can also affect your physical and mental health.
On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, welcome Lakshmiji to your home by just decorating your home according to Vastu. Life Positive presents a Diwali Bonanza! You can ask one question on how to Vastu your home and our Vastu expert Mr. Jyotirmoy Gupta will give free telephonic Vastu Consultancy to the first 10 people!

Wish you a happy and prosperous Diwali!!
