They say winners never quit and quitters never win, but quitters are not losers all the time. If it is all about winning a drag of smoke, then victory always stands with the quitters. The habit of smoking is like chewing the gum, it feels good initially, but later you just keep on doing it pointlessly. Thankfully, chewing gum doesn’t have a toll on your health, and it doesn’t turn into a habit. Your logical mind questions everything with ifs and buts, well, in the case of smoking, all your ifs and buts come after you have stubbed the butt of a cigarette.

We all are acquainted with the warning mentioned on tobacco products. Smoking is injurious to health but it is far more damaging to the people suffering from high blood pressure. Smokers are prone to the health conditions, like high blood pressure, heart attack, etc. and the ones who are already suffering from these diseases are advised to quit immediately. Quitting smoking normalizes the blood pressure and reduces the risk of cardiac arrest.

All the smokers have to deal with the burning odor of tobacco that stays in their mouth for a long time. The burning smell is repulsive and pushes the non-smokers at a distance.

You will wonder that a smoker has to pay the high premium for the health insurance as compared to a non-smoker. It’s time to realize that smoking is injurious to both physical and financial health!!

We discussed earlier several reasons for quitting the dangerous habit of smoking. The problem is that the disadvantages of this habit come in installments and make it easier for us to overlook. Quit smoking before it gets too late because there is a better life after that!! You will feel good about yourself, your physical health will improve, and you will save loads of money to spend on other important things.

The world-renowned chef Thomas Keller once said that “A recipe has no soul. You as the cook must bring soul to the recipe.” This is the only reason why one should never stop experimenting with food. When you see the same old monotonous things are followed, you get bored – right? The same thing applies to food also. The same old recipe or way of cooking cannot bring any thrill to the table. To break away the conventional types, here the recipe of orange fish would be covered today. The year 2017 witnessed a heart-warming or soul-stirring movie named “Machher Jhol” which was all about the relationship between a chef and his mom. On his return to his homeland after 13 years, he is challenged by his ailing mom to cook the same fish curry he cooked as a teen. In this quest, he discovers a new recipe and in fact reinvent himself.

This unique Orange Fish recipe was shared in this movie and became quite popular among those who are open to experience experimental food recipes.

Fish, in general, carry a pungent smell but once deep-fried and cooked with other spices – there is nothing tastier than that! This combination of Orange and Fish sounds really weird – but that’s what romantic about this recipe which you must try once!

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.

The 3 AM Scene

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!!

The Classroom Scene

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 Boyfriend Scene

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.

The Last Exorcism Scene

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

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
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
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
Image Source – Google

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

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
