The people we surround ourselves with play a huge role in our life. They say that “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” The people you spend most of your time with influence the way you think, act and feel on a day-to-day basis. The people in your life will either inspire you or drain you – so, choose it’s so vital to choose wisely who you surround youself with!
If it’s that important to be surrounded with the right type of people, then what type of people do you surround yourself with to help you be successful?

Who would have thought being mindful in each and every action of ours is so important to our physical and mental well-being. It wasn’t till very recently I started exploring the art of mindfulness. Like most of us, I am just another common human being who always thought being on the go and busy is how we need to be in our pursuit of success and happiness. Our days have become so mundane and demanding that we often tend to operate in an autopilot mode without even realising it. Plus, maintaining a work life balance is evidently becoming harder in this fast-paced life, which is why it is very essential that we “Be. Here. Now”.

I am a big fan of coffee! But, in the recent times there has been such a craze about this newbie in many cafes called the “Turmeric Latte” / “Golden Milk”. I was very intrigued over this hot drink and decided to try it! After all, it was actually quite nice, especially having a cup of Turmeric Latte in this cold weather is just so comforting. Powered with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties such as turmeric and ginger, this healing golden milk is completely caffeine free and dairy free which makes it perfect to be consumed any time of the day.
