A Gold Morning is when I wake up with nothing but positivism brewing inside me.
It’s unusual for every morning to be fantastic or something out of the blue, thus the term “Gold Morning” since it doesn’t happen that often.
My idea of a gold morning revolves around a few aspects;
  1. Early rising (By 7am).
  2. Exercise/Jogging (At least 10 minutes or more).
  3. Healthy breakfast (My favorite time)
  4. Read few articles/blogs OR write one! (Effects of being a blogger)
  5. Leave the house with the hope of having a stress free day (There’s always hope for that!)
I rise early and start my routine with jogging for a few laps to burn some fat (if that’s possible) and then head home a bit tired. Then comes the main moment of me getting fresh to welcome yet another working day. I begin with brushing my teeth using the “Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold Toothbrush”.
Yes, it looks cool too. That’s how nowadays my regular mornings turn into #Colgate360GoldMornings
Yes, that’s about the start. Then after being refreshed, breakfast is the only thing that’s on my mind. There’s nothing more i can muster until a morsel finds space in my mouth. Yes i love my breakfast a lot. That paves way to a good start for the day.
Then comes the best part. I like reading a few news articles. I have to check out something related to sports, then head over to any new stories on the news papers. Then if i have time, i read a few blogs or i choose to write a post myself. It feels good to start my day with a blog post. I feel better than ever post reading and writing. It just makes me happy.
To conclude, I’d like to say that anyone can have a gold morning. All you need is a big chunk of perspective with a hint of optimism.
So this was me sharing my daily routine which turns a regular morning into a Gold morning.
Why don’t you share your mantra too?
I’d like to hear your story too.

The internet was a luxury as we grew up.
2g Internet was normal when it arrived. Everyone was happy and none had issues.
Yes there were occasional glitches, sometimes we did not have internet for a few hours at a stretch, but as they say we all had the “Chalta Hai” attitude deep rooted inside of us. So we didn’t mind.
Then we witnessed the world of 3G. Oh the rush it gave us was simply not explainable. It gave us fast speed, the madness, everything else making us want more and more. There were rare glitches. Hardly there was a time that the internet stopped for a few minutes or hours. But the 3G storm made sure we all were affected so much that we would want to be hit again and again. 
Now we all thought that there’s no more room for improvement but the ever changing fast technology caught up with another milestone. 
Yes, the 4G. We all know how fast 3G was. I cannot even imagine what speed 4G can deliver. It will be out of this world for us. Gone were the days when we spent hours and hours to download songs and movies.  Now all we will be doing is waiting for a few minutes and our wish will be fulfilled.
I am a 3G user since a long time. Now 4G has arrived. It’s pretty obvious I would want my hands on it. But it’s been very long since any carrier made a move for bringing in this speed for our market. Airtel then finally made the move by launching the 4G nationally.

Yes, they’ve got it for us. You can visit their new webpage www.airtel.in/4G for more updates on 4G. They have all information regarding the offerings of the product.
That’s not all. They are also providing 4G speeds to any device compatible with it at the price of 3G. Can you imagine that? No more extra costs. No more high schemes. It’s just plain speed and peace of mind for you.
I saw the TVC (www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpHZ3sXY6B8) and I must tell you I’m impressed with the offering by Airtel. But as they say, until you haven’t felt it don’t speak up.
So I’ll be waiting to use 4G on my device. For all those who want it too, just hop on to their webpage and check if your sim card and your smartphone is 4G compatible. Then you’re all set!!

A balanced healthy diet.
Sounds good but is tough to conquer and even tougher to maintain. People who swore by their diet have had wonders in the results. The rest know what happens when you don’t maintain a diet.
You can ask me that question.
I am of the opinion that a diet is indeed very important. Majority keep more emphasis on the exercise and gym aspects. But in reality that’ll only work when you maintain a proper diet. If you exercise during the day and gorge on food in the evening, it might nullify or worse, might lead to weight increase.
A crash diet is one of the worst options possible. You maintain a diet for a while, let go of oily food, chocolates etc. and in the process lose weight, maybe even your appetite. What you don’t realise is that so many compromises in the diet affects the nutrition. Our body needs a minimum requirement of nutrients. If all of a sudden you don’t provide it to your body, it will have adverse effects.
Also a crash diet might give you the result you crave for in limited time. But it will remain limited only. Once you start eating again, you’ll come back to your original shape even quicker than how you lost it. Thus it’s important to keep track of your diet.
With that, I want to share my experience last year when I started swimming and started maintaining a diet.

30 minutes of exercise in the morning, swimming in the evening was what I did for almost 6 months. But that was not all. I also limited myself to a diet which I believe played a vital role in keeping myself fit.
I am a foodie. I can eat anytime. Junk food is in my blood. Parting ways with it was like me going to a rehab centre. It was tough but yes I did get past that hurdle.
I knew I cannot let go of a lot of food items in my diet, so I played it safe. I ate, but at proper intervals and ate healthy. Here’s an example.
7.30am-8.00am – Exercise
Around 8.45am – Breakfast (with 1 glass of warm water with Dabur Honey)
11am – A fruit (maybe a banana/apple etc.)
1pm – Lunch (2-3 chapatis with vegetables/chicken)
3.30pm – A fruit again
5pm – Tea with a few biscuits
6pm-7pm – Swimming
8.00pm – A fruit again
9.30pm – Dinner (same as lunch)
As you can see, I did make sure to eat something at proper intervals. Also keeping honey in my diet helped. As we all know a glass of honey with warm water in the morning is known for its help in weight management.

Keeping a Honey diet is advisable for starters when all we want to manage is our ever increasing weight.
The times between breakfast –lunch, lunch –tea and tea- dinner are stages where we feel a bit hungry. Here is when our loyalty is tested the most. We end up eating something that we like not realising the impact it can have on our system.
I had seen a huge impact after 3 months of maintaining such a diet. I lost a considerate amount of weight. The confidence in me kept rising up. I had a zing about exercising. No laziness. No health issues. I felt fit as ever.
After 3 months, I did continue my diet, but tweaked it a bit with keeping one day for my sinful delights. I would have a chocolate or gorge on some street food just once a week.
There was not much of an impact there. So it’s tried and tested by me. People around me will tell you how much of a change they saw in me. My mother itself was worried as to why I was losing so much weight.
Jokes apart, keeping a balanced diet is important in today’s time. Or else we youngsters will get ill more frequently and get affected by illness which we must be getting after crossing 45-50 years of age.
So eat healthy, eat at proper intervals, exercise too and yes you will see an impact.
Have a nice day.
