7 Positive Daily Habits to Live Stress Free

“Stress is not what happens to us. It’s our response to what happens and response is something we can choose.” ~ Maureen Killoran

Believe it or not, we are almost always surrounded by stress. Be it work stress, relationship stress, self image stress, social stress, world events stress….the list can be endless. Stress is unavoidable…it will be thrown at us at every nook and corner…BUT although we don’t have a choice at what is thrown at us…we have a choice as to how we allow it to effect us.

As human tendency we tend to reflect on the past and think of all the things we achieved or didn’t achieve. I personally choose to focus on what I did achieve…that leads me to feel happy for the time that has gone by and makes me feel hopeful for the future.

Over the years I’ve come to understand and manage stress positively and keep it as far away from me as possible. The one thing I do know, is that I have to work on keeping stress away from me on a daily basis. A conscious effort to live stress free is imperative. Continue reading

10 Loving Ways to Add Happiness to your Relationships


“Let your love be like the misty rains, coming softly, but flooding the river.” ~Malagasy Proverb

After receiving countless lovely emails and messages regarding different kinds of relationships and the problems in them, this is the article I wrote, which attempts to answer almost all of those queries. 

One of my friends recently gave me an article about happiness that asked the question, “How happy can we be?” Pretty darn happy if I’m in love, you might say. But according to psychologists, about 50 percent of our happiness is determined by our genes, and amazingly only about 10 percent has to do with our actual circumstances. The other 40 percent has to do with what we do to counteract a seemingly natural tendency for us to stay at or around what we psychologists term our “set point” or “base line.”

In other words people tend to reach a goal, whether it be finding love, getting married, or making more money and feel a surge of happiness for a while, only to soon adapt back down to their “set point.” Continue reading

2 Life Lessons from 2016 & Why 2017 is all about Carpe Diem

2 Life Lessons from 2016 & Why 2017 is all about Carpe Diem“The trouble is, you think you have time.” ~ Buddha

This past year has been many things for me – tumultuous, uneven, unexpectedly high, super low(at times), downright crazy, emotionally high-strung, thoroughly healing with immense growing etc.

But the one constant thought that stayed with me is the words of Buddha…The trouble is, you think you have time! Honestly, this thought never left me and it is even more stronger in my head now as I usher in the next year. I’ll tell you why in just a little bit.

I saw highs in 2016 like immense growth of Positive Provocations subscriber base, blossoming of my little girl into this beautiful person who is all heart(yay! happy mommy 🙂 ), Successfully Counseled countless Souls, friends that came back after years, healthier me, confidence levels boosted like NEVER before, awards and accolades, ideas and inspiration for businesses etc etc.

But there were lows too! Those lows are where all the learning came from. Those low points in 2016 are what jolted me back to that healthier, confident and more loving state I am in right now. So, I must acknowledge them. Continue reading
