Don't rush challenge

It always said “New challenge bring out better person in you.”

This lockdown is no less than a challenge for most of us. Everyone has schedule and we are habitual to that. But this lock down has broke all the barrier of  systematic functioning of anything. Kids want to sleep more , unending demands of food, lots of house chore  has increased in lock down.

My whole system has waggled , my daughter does want to wake up before 11 a.m , my son don’t want to sleep after 7 a.m. Night fights of sleeping tight increase to 12 a.m. I felt my kitchen love me more so I have to spend more time in kitchen. Due to everyone wake up schedules changes that also effect my house chore work. I wish to do some exercise workout in evening but again evening snack takes up my time.

I was literally too tired to binge any web series which I subscribed too. After Struggling for few days.
I am not only able to work but also except some challenges and new habits.

What I believe-

Whats the fun when we can’t accept new challenges?

Challenges come to us to make us better not bitter. 

Challenges give us a kick to beat them and mark victory on your eyes.

Plan In Advance

Its my habit to plan before time for breakfast . I use to do preparation at night and  wake up in morning before everyone to finish my kitchen work.

Online Class RescuesNew challenges - online class

Biggest challenge to wake up my daughter become a rescue mission . Online classes is just like knight in shining armor for me . I am so relieved , I can’t tell you. She is back in her form and at least wakes up at 8 a.m because of her online classes.

Same with My son but with son we are struggling a bit. He just got admission in school and before orientation , this lock down happen. My little champ didn’t meet his teacher on physically. He is not ready for online classes , it is great task to make him sit for online classes. My kid is just 3 year old but my hubby is trying to make it successful. But soon I will have to face one more challenge after my hubby resumes his job on 20 April.

New challenges bring New Habits
Cooking without Fire - new challenge

I spend maximum time in kitchen but to make it worthy for my daughter. We have started COOKING WITHOUT FIRE SERIES which make her self dependent. You know now she share recipe with her Nani and get rewards too.

COOKING WITHOUT FIRE nurture her knowledge about spices,groceries and measurement. Unwanted demand also got lesser now. She also help me in serving food. I got a little Chef in my home.

Blog Challenges

I have taken #BlogchatterA2Z challenge first time and working on it. In afternoon when my home is quite my two big distractor are taking nap. I use to take blog challenge at peaceful hour of thinking.
Moreover my both gadgets are engaged in online classes.

Playtime/ Workoutbeing fit is new challenges with Play time

In evening our workout spot is our terrace where my kids play. We (husband and wife) do workout or power walk to stay fit not just to pound on increase weight by mere eating. Some time our kids join in too , leaving their cycling and copy us.
Even kids grandfather join to play badminton with them, its fun watching the bond of this generation.

Aarti Time

This habit is Gifted by Father in law that’s why  it is said the presence of an elder is must in house so as to guide you and show you right path. He is spiritually strong and bring whole family together to do Aarti  and Few minutes to thank God.

Ramayan Reading Ramayan

I never read any Mythological book like Ramayan and Mahabharat but it was my hubby thought of  reading Ramayana.  As we shifted to new house, my hubby wished to have Ramayan path in house but my father in law adviced that it would be better to do yourself to understand it. Whats more better thing to do in this lock down? Believe me there is great difference in reading and watching Ramayan.
Even I come to know about the importance of Mantra through it.

Apps Are Saviournew challenges - App

Some Apps are really great Saviour in quarantine time not only for my daughter but for me too. I love playing Word puzzle ,word search.  It make me kid again. My daughter and mother  fight to beat each other score.

    seems like I am reading my daily routine, I can connect with every bit of your post Gurjeet from kids fight to the online class schedule, even from showing dishes to Nani calling to playing with dadaji, from Arti to Ramayan…. I got a glimpse of mine from every corner, last past dancing means like Bang on, one more time same pinch.

    Blogging challenges help me in being consistent. It’s so good to see that you are enculcating cultural values in kids. Our grandfather used to each us one adhyaya from shrimad bhagwad Geeta every evening.

    A very honest post i must say. My daughter also had to start new school and without knowing the teachers and classmates it is a challenge to make her sit for her zoom classes. We all have learnt a lot in this phase and I hope we live a better life post this.

    We have to re-schedule our schedule in order to make the best of our time. Not a new habit justI did publish my second book. Its a recipe book. Since you are spending a good amount of time in the kitchen, do check it out Culinary Tales-Indian Recipes for Every Home Chef. Its available on Amazon in Kindle format. And with unlimited pan, its for free download.
