Reconnecting with your loved ones this Diwali!
As students and working professionals, it is so easy to get busy with the day to day activities. Between classes, exams, work and social media, spending time with family, mentors, seniors and teachers often takes a back-seat. This festive season, reconnect with with the people you love and respect. As a student, there is nothing more rewarding than the advice and blessings of your elders. Here are a few simple ways you can reach out and connect!
1. Contribute to a cause together and celebrate the joy of giving
Decide on a common cause that you and your mentors resonate with and. For example, visit an orphanage together and make an impact through your time or donations. A sense of satisfaction and meaning will bring you closer. Diwali is incomplete without lights and decoration. Make time with them to make small lamps, craftworks and Rangoli, perhaps in an old age home!
2. Express your gratitude
The festive season can be a great way to express your love and gratitude towards the person you admire. You can write letters, plan a surprise visit if you stay away from home, send out gifts, and thank them for being an important part of your life. You can send thank you notes and inspiring books to your teachers and mentors for guiding you through the journey. You can also send chocolate boxes to your teachers and mentors with a short note attached and make them feel special. You don’t know how far your little gesture will go in brightening up someone’s year.
3. Spend time with your mentors and elders
We should avoid our phones and spend quality time with our loved ones. Food and festivals go hand in hand. It’s the best time of the year to invite your loved ones for a Diwali treat. Learn from the inspiring stories of your elders, and make the most of their handmade sweet treats! You will realise how conversations with them will give you a fresh perspective about world. While you might feel you are taking out time, they will actually add value to you.
Festive seasons like these foster strong relationships. According to Harvard Health publishing, people who express gratitude and just say “Thank you” are 70% happier than those who do not. Glow with gratitude and see how awe and joy will make their home in you! Seasons Greetings!
