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. There are many famous tourist destinations in India like Goa, Manali, Agra, Jaipur, Kashmir, Ladakh, Darjeeling, etc. But there lies an India apart from these famous destinations which are to attract a massive annual footfall. Perhaps that is one of the reasons behind the peace that you can enjoy in these less-crowded places.

To fill up your travel diary, you can thus plan to visit these flowing places in India which are quite off-beat in spirit. But you would definitely feel satiated after the visit.

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!!

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.

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

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.
