Watching horror movies all alone in the middle of the night is not everyone’s cup of tea. But people who are a big fan of horror movies and have the courage to watch them enjoy it thoroughly. These movies keep the flame of suspense burning from starting until the very end and surprise you with the oh-so-scary scenes from time to time. Over the time, there have been several scary movies that made people jump out of their bed and deep-rooted the fear that can wake them up in the middle of the night all sweaty and panting.

One such heart-pounding scary movie of all the time is ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose.’ It is the story of a 19-year old college going girl, Emily Rose played by Jennifer Carpenter, who is possessed by the demons that made her practice self-abuse, starve, speak in different languages, and destroy religious symbols. Then the parish priest, Father Richard Moore played by Tom Wilkinson visits her and found out that an exorcism is indicated. That eventually lead to the death of the girl and the priest is charged with negligent homicide.

Being a horror movie based on the scary topic of ‘Exorcism,’ it had its fair share of soul-shivering scenes which we are going to share with you further.

One night at 3 AM, when the body of Emily Rose gets paralyzed and that was the moment when the demon entered her body. She could feel something squeezing her neck and trying to get the hold of her body, and she couldn’t move her arms, legs or body. Imagine anything like this happening to you even in your dreams. Scary as hell, Right!!

Sitting in the class, Emily turns to the student beside her and sees his face turn into a demonic face. It scares her to the core, and she left the class all frightened up. On her way to the Church, she also sees the faces of strangers turning demonic as if they are trying to scare her away. Her boyfriend follows her to the Church where he sees the body of Emily acquiring strange, unnatural positions and distorted shape. The visuals are scary enough to get you to jump scared!!

The scene starts how Emily Rose is scared of the recent disturbing experiences and her boyfriend tries to calm her down and put her to sleep. But when he woke up, he couldn’t find Emily on the bed and get horrified to see her lying on the floor in a distorted shape with her limbs twisted. And when he tries to reach her, she makes weird noises and scares him away. The disturbing visuals of the scene will make you bite your nails with fear!!

Being one of the terrifying scenes, it starts when Emily’s sister goes to her room to call her and find out that she is eating bugs. After that, she starts scratching walls with her nails, tearing her hair out, and making weird noises. When her dad comes into the room along with Father Moore, the demon inside the body of Emily twist her limbs at odd angles and make her body stiff. Later in the scene, Emily lashed at the priest who was trying to help her get rid of the dark forces.

One of the most frightening scenes, where Emily Rose ultimately reveals that there are six demons inhibiting her body. They reveal themselves in six different languages that have possessed others in history. In this scene, the demons call the family cats to attack the priest while Emily frees herself and leap out of the window. That scary leap will certainly have your heart in your mouth.

Father Moore mentioned in the movie that “Demons exist whether you believe in them or not.” And if you believe they do, then this is the movie that you must watch at least once, be it alone or in the company of your horror movie lover friend.

“There is an unspoken bond you create with the friends you travel with.”

– Kristen Sarah

Decide the Budget

Money matters!! So the foremost thing to consider while planning any group trip is the budget. There may be some in the group who can splurge on everything they set their eyes on and then there may be others who have to think hard before spending their sweet money. So decide the budget that suits everyone.

P.S. – If planning an international trip, your credit or debit cards may not function in other countries, so make sure you carry enough currency.

Group Size Matters

On a trip, it matters if you are traveling in a big group or a small one. A size of 4 to 6 allows for less coordination and makes the trip quite fluid. Always try to keep the count in even numbers. For instance- in a group of three, if two get along really well, then the third one may feel like the odd one out. And it can disturb the whole group dynamics.

Make It Collaborative

No one in the group must feel that the decisions are being made for them and they are being sidelined or they are the only ones working hard to organize the trip. From planning down travel dates, researching the destination and deciding where to stay, all the people in the group should be the part of the discussion and must have a say in it.

Book Rooms in Advance

Whether you are planning to stay in a hotel, beach house or Airbnb with your buddies, it is important to book your accommodation in advance. Because in the worst nightmare scenario, you may end up without a room to stay in a new city or country in the middle of the night. And that for sure, you would never want to happen.

No Extra Luggage

Carrying that extra party dress when you have already packed like 4 will never do any good to you. Try to keep your luggage light, so that you don’t face any issue while commuting. You can try and make a group packing list for the items that you can share with your friends. After all, sharing is caring!!

Create a Whatsapp Group

While on a trip, it is quite possible that some members of the group may end up going in a different direction. A designated Whatsapp group will help keep track of everyone and in case of emergency, you can easily spot them through their location. For an all-girls trip, it is the best measure from the safety point of view as well. And more than that, the best way to share Instagram-worthy clicks with your besties!!

Co-ordination is the Key

When traveling in a group, coordination is crucial and everyone must be on the same page. You can also prepare an itinerary to plan all the activities you will be doing and the places you will be visiting on each day of your trip. So that you don’t end up asking each other “So what’s next?” and wasting your time.

We hope the tips mentioned above make your trip rocking and you have the time of your life with your lovely ladies.

Have a great trip ahead. BON VOYAGE!!

There is a famous saying that “No love is greater than a mom’s love and no care is greater than a dad’s care.” It is one of the best moments of life when you make your parents smile. But with age, many things change and that is the law of life. At a certain age, you may feel that your parents are not understanding you and vice-versa. Maybe you don’t feel like calling them or returning home just to avoid any banter with them. Not only teenagers but adults also face this challenge at some point in their life. Career change, lack of relaxation, health issues, insurance premium, loans, EMI, dreams, aspirations, etc. – there are too many factors that cause a bump in this beautiful relationship.

With a few simple ways, you can mitigate this problem from your life. Read below:

Treat them as Fellow Adults and not Parents
Relationship_1_httpswww.telegraph.co.uknewsuknewslaw-and-order10466579Make-parents-who-buy-alcohol-for-children-pick-litter.html

A lot of teenagers and some grown-ups complain that their parents don’t treat them like an adult. You have to understand that your age difference would always remain the same with them and thus you would always remain a kid to them. But, you have to help them let you grow up. Treat them like your fellow friends or acquaintances and things would get better. If you start practicing this, they would finally understand that you have grown up.

Laugh Together
Relationship_1_httpswww.telegraph.co.uknewsuknewslaw-and-order10466579Make-parents-who-buy-alcohol-for-children-pick-litter.html

Nothing can beat the tonic of laughter when it comes to feeling easy in any relationship. Make a habit of sharing nice jokes, reading out a funny e-mail, or narrating a meme would be suggested. There would always be some amount of stress in life (both you and your parents) and humor helps to alleviate that. Remember that if you can laugh together, you are definitely doing ok!

Share Your Problems
Relationship_3_httpsnewroadstreatment.orgtelling-your-parents-you-have-a-drug-problem
Image Source – Google

There cannot be anyone else in this world who can understand you better than your parents. Even when they know that you are wrong, they would try to support you because of the unconditional love they have for you. This logic would also apply here when you feel that they don’t understand you. Don’t keep silent or keep sulking in a corner, instead, share whatever is bothering you. With due respect to them, narrate which are the problems that are bothering you. If your mom or dad calls you in the daytime which hampers your professional performance, you must share that challenge with them.

Seek Opinion Only When You Require
Relationship_4_httpswrite.100nakedwords.comchoices-happiness-c8f37b15465egi=e5a93ea62790

Sometimes, you ask your parents “what to do” in certain situations. Well, that is a way of seeking their permission or letting them know that you are still not capable of taking your own decisions. From selecting the color of the car to buying the living room furniture – you are capable enough as an adult to go choose what suits your taste! Parents would always want the best things for their child and in case they are providing a piece of advice, smile and look at it but always keep the final decision to yourself without any guilt.

Solve Your Personal & Financial Crisis on Your Own
Relationship_5_httpwww.expansion.comahorro201611025819ed0d46163fa3768b45a2.html

As a grown-up adult, you should be fully responsible for yourself. Yes, of course, you need your parents for an emotional support but seeking help from them to solve your personal or financial crisis would not be a great idea. Somewhere, you would also be proud of yourself to deal with your own challenges. This would boost your confidence and your parents would also be proud of you.

Look out for Common Interests
Relationship_6_httpscommunitytable.parade.com65585jmarquezchopchops-sally-sampson-on-cooking-up-fun-with-kids
Image Source – Google

The common interest can be anything like traveling, biking, hiking, fishing, reading, movie-watching, shopping, baking, dancing, singing, etc. Always look out for shared interests to spend some more quality time with them. When you share a common interest in some kind of activity, you naturally come closer to them. If your parents love to visit historical places, go with them, because who knows you may end up loving history too. Similarly, you can introduce your parents to Netflix and you never know, you would end up spending all the weekends watching Prime Videos together!

Always be Grateful

To sustain any kind of relationship, gratitude plays an essential role. You may not like a certain habit of your parents but you simply ignore the fact that they are the reasons behind your life. So, don’t miss any small to big opportunity to appreciate their efforts as a parent. When you thank more for the good things, better things materialize.

Communication in a relationship is like the oxygen. Without proper communication, the relationship dies and thus, use these very simple methods in your daily life and improve your relationship with your parents.

India is the largest democracy in the world and we Indians boast off the fact that we have a culturally diverse country. This cultural diversity is definitely a result of the physical or topographical diversity. The presence of mountains, sea, islands, and tidal forests make India a traveler’s paradise for sure.

Perhaps that is one of the reasons behind the peace that you can enjoy in these less-crowded places.

Breakups are never easy!! They leave you heartbroken and make you cry your eyes out. Whether your relationship lasted for a month or three years, breakups always have some emotional consequences that can be quite painful. Every person has their own way of dealing with it, some prefer to listen to romantic numbers keeping the tissue box handy while others try to shed their pain over the bottle of wine; some try to keep themselves busy at work while others go out and meet new people.

Of course, there is going to be a grieving period that can make you feel lonely but time is the biggest healer that heals all the emotional wounds.

Here are a few good tricks to help you cope up with the aftereffects of a breakup, heal, grow, and move ahead in life leaving behind the emotional pain.

Talk It Out

Keeping unpleasant feelings inside will do no good to you. They not only hurt you but also prevent from moving past them. Breakups come with the baggage of sad emotions- disappointment, the feeling of rejection, loneliness, etc. If you are not able to deal with it all by yourself, then consult a therapist or talk to a close friend to vent out all the negative emotions.

Do Things That You Love

Breakups hurt. Period. But we can’t let that miserable feeling drive our entire life in a negative direction. Start to enjoy yourself and do things that always fill your heart with immense happiness. It will boost your mood and ease the feeling of loneliness and sadness.

Health comes first, always!! And you can never ever neglect that. Don’t let the feeling of rejection let you develop unhealthy food habits. A balanced diet including plenty of fresh fruits and green vegetables can neutralize the stress that comes with the breakup. Instead of crying and feeling bad about yourself, focus your energy towards keeping your body happy and healthy.

Remember the Good Things in Your Life

When you are sad and your spirit is low, it is easy to see the loss in everything that starts overwhelming the positive things in your life. It is hard but you can always try to feel grateful for all the good things in life. Thinking about the good things will enhance your well-being and improve your outlook on life.

Steer Clear Of Social Media for Sometime

Stalking your ex on social media post-breakup is a big no-no!! Our advice is to stay away from social media for a few days so that you don’t end up in an embarrassing situation by putting emotional posts on Facebook. Also, if seeing your ex’s pictures or status bother you, then simply block them to keep the sad and negative feelings at a bay.

Meet New People

Life moves on and that’s the beauty of it!! Anyone going through a breakup has their fair share of sad days, teary eyes, and the broken heart but it needs to stop somewhere. Once you believe you are ready to stand on your feet again, start meeting new people and spend time with them. And never ever try to compare your new relationship or partner with the old one.

Acceptance Is the Greatest Virtue

The earlier you understand, the more you will benefit from it!! You need to accept the fact that your relationship did not work and spending more time and energy into it was not worth. Start recognizing your self-worth that you deserve to be happy in life. Learn from the old mistakes so that you don’t repeat them, focus on your best qualities and move ahead with positivity in the heart.

Always remember that you are the reason for someone’s smile in this world. So, be kind to yourself and time will eventually heal all the wounds that a breakup can possibly give you!!

“If you want a relationship that looks and feels like the most amazing thing on earth, you need to treat it like it is the most amazing thing on earth.”

Being in love is the most comforting feeling. Knowing that even when the whole world turns its back on you, there will be that one person waiting for you at the end of the tunnel- nothing in the whole world can beat that amazing feeling!! Love relationships come with a lot of perks- the sweet good morning texts, walking hand in hand, making up after the silly fights, and stealing kisses. They make you feel alive and see beauty everywhere around. Yes, being in love is quite magical!!

When in a relationship, the most important thing to remember is- “They only work, when you work.” If you are in a long-distance relationship, you must have heard your friends and family members saying that it’s never going to work out and eventually you will get your heart broken. Our suggestion- don’t listen to them!! If there is love in the heart and face of that special someone always lights up your day, then distances don’t matter. We are not saying that a long-distance relationship is going to be all smiles and no tears. Of course, there are going to be a few challenges, like any other relationship, but the proper communication, clarity, and commitment will let it sail smoothly.

So here are some golden tips to keep your long-distance relationship alive and strong!!

Be Open about Your Feelings

Hiding feelings and not letting your partner know how you feel about your relationship does no good to anyone. Talk to them about anything and everything!! If there are some qualities of your partner that you adore with all your heart, do let them know. Similarly, if any of their habits bother you, never hide it from them. Because you never know when the little obstacles can become mountains and ruin the relationship.

Communicate Regularly and Clearly

The first and foremost step for a successful long-distance relationship is- healthy and regular communication. It keeps you updated about the life of your partner and its happenings. Choose the time and mode of communication. Send pictures, audios, and videos to each other from time to time. These cute little things go a long way in strengthening your relationship and making your partner feel loved. Also, set some ground rules so that your actions don’t take the other person by surprise.

Give Some Space to Your Partner

No matter how busy or engaged we get in life, we all need some time alone. And being alone doesn’t mean lonely. After all, self-introspection help us realize our strengths and weaknesses that strive us to become a better person, which benefits our partner in a great way. When in the long-distance relationship, people sometimes have these impractical expectations that their partner will answer their calls in the very first ring and respond straight away to every text. Don’t keep such expectations!! Give enough space to your partner to let your relationship grow organically.

Honesty and Trust Is the Key

It is quite common to have the feelings of fear, insecurity, and jealousy in relationships. And they tend to become bigger when you live away from your partner. Do not let the paranoia swallow up your peace of mind. Honesty and trust must be the foundation of every relationship. And if you ever doubt that your partner is not being loyal to you, then instead of spying on their social media accounts, go and talk directly to them before it gets too late.

Visit Each Other As Much As You Can

Getting to meet your partner, holding hands, and kissing them is quite a luxury in a long-distance relationship. But whenever it happens, it is extra special, the feeling is quite magical and you can hear the violins playing in the background. You can make a pact with your partner that every alternate month you will meet each other, try some new activities, and create beautiful memories to treasure till you get to meet next.

Be Positive

Staying positive in all the situations makes life much better. Don’t be sad that you are miles apart from your partner. Just be grateful for the fact that you have someone to love who loves you back with all their heart and soul. You may get less time to meet each other, but remember it is always quality that matters over quantity. So never forget to enjoy your little meetings that are sweet as heaven!!

Long distance relationships may be tough, but they give you reasons to love your partner harder!! We hope the tips mentioned above work for you in a miraculous way and make your relationship happier and stronger.

Waking up early means, you would not be late for your assignments. This would give you time to prepare and eat your breakfast properly without any rush. If you snooze your morning alarm, you are more likely to skip the most important meal of the day i.e., breakfast and tend to starve or overeat later. Both these situations lead to an unhealthy diet system which would be harmful in the long run.

Benjamin Franklin once said that “The early morning has gold in its mouth”. That is true. If you wish to achieve something in life, start it in the daytime and see the results coming in your lap so easily! If you are a late riser, you can take baby steps towards improving that habit. Set your alarm 15 minutes earlier every week and over a period of time and see the magic!
