Networking: the necessary career evil. It conjures up visions of a crowded room of professionals adorned with name tags and holding glasses of wine.

We all are guilty of forgetting our beautiful soul for that particular moment when realization strikes and you're back to your own reality. Well...STOP. Just stop comparing yourself to some one else because you are a miracle and you're unique in your own way. Job title, income, grades, house, and the social media comments and likes—the number of categories in which we can compare ourselves to others are infinite. So is the number of people we can compare ourselves to. A comparison is generally the fast track to unhappiness. It’s a recipe for misery. All it does is keeping you focused on what you don’t like about yourself and your life. Here are ten powerful reminders when you start comparing yourself to others:
Being a vegetarian (been one since birth. yeah it's extremely common among Indians) and struggling to get healthy with my choices for food for a good, healthy lifestyle has always been a struggle. I started writing about food and sharing recipes since the last month (so far, I've shared only 2 recipes) and I've come to know the importance of staying healthy more than ever. It's all about the right mindset. So today, I won't share a recipe but instead share some tips to help you and keep you on track about making the right choices when it comes to health and food. Consider this as a friend's advice because that is how I'm writing this out..Just simple language and not even going to make revisions or make changes later on.. Sharing this as I write and publish a raw draft.
