Disposable Plastic has been banned on Delhi, India

Delhi, India’s capital city and home of about 19 million people has officially banned the use of disposable plastic. A great start for the green revolution in India.

Plastics are posing a great threat to our marine biodiversity. I know plastic has been a part of our everyday lives for the past century. Living without it is pretty hard. But I think that it’s time to give that up or make another eco-friendly version of it.

Incorporating Music To Woodworking


As they say, “music is the language of the soul.”

And if you’re a woodworker, why not make your project connect to your soul – say, by incorporating music to woodworking?

Here are some ways:

  • Carving Musical Instruments. Woodworking is not just limited to furniture making and creating traditional wood projects like a bowl or a spoon using tools from Healthy Handyman. Woodworking is about unleashing your creativity, as well as what truly makes your soul happy. So if you love music as much as you love woodworking, why don’t you create something that has both? Carve wood keychains of musical instruments, be it a small-sized guitar or a medium-sized piano. You can also make something that relates to how you play music on a daily basis. Say, you usually play music on your mobile phone. So, carve a musical-themed wood casing for it. Say, you play musical instruments. So, create a stand for your musical instrument. Say, you prefer listening to CDs and old records. So, make a shelf for those albums.
  • Listening To Music. Wood projects might take long to finish completely. There’s also a possibility that you’ll lock yourself in your bedroom or in your garage just to concentrate on your wood project. However, don’t forget that working on something – especially with little interactions coming from the outside world – can have a daunting effect on your body and mental state like fatigue and irritability. So, listen to music while working on your wood projects. It will not only make you feel better, but also make you feel more lively as you work. It also helps your mind truly concentrate on what you’re doing in a healthy way – and by healthy, it means giving you the ability to let go of any negativity you might have as you work on the project and cheer you up if you’re feeling down.

In conclusion, you can always incorporate music into woodworking. Whether you’re incorporating it due to passion or due to lifestyle, music will always be there for you – no matter what happens. To help you realize the importance of music even more – not just in woodworking, but also in other aspects of a person’s life – imagine a world without music, not even a peeping sound from your little brother who just opened the front door to go outside and play with his friends.

Dull, right?

So, incorporate music in woodworking – as well as in other aspects of your life.

Some Things You Can Do To Cheer Yourself Up

I feel so alone. I don’t want to work anymore. I can’t do this.

Stop right there!

Try saying these to yourself, instead:

You’re not alone. Yes, you do. You can do it.

Okay, say it once again. Feel the difference? Good.

cheering up

Don’t you know that you can do anything you set your mind to?

Yes, you can. And with that, here are some things you can do to cheer yourself up:

  • Listen to music. As they say, music is the language of our souls. Aside from that, it helps you both realize and overcome whatever pain you’re going through right now.
  • Decluttering. While other people just see decluttering as a tiring household chore, nothing beats a sparkling clean home to lighten up your mood.
  • Start a new project. Who says you can’t do this and that? You can and you will – maybe even learn how to cut down trees using a saw or mow your way overdue lawn!

Simple Rules to Live by for Lesser Stress in Your Life


Stress is not always a bad thing. Good stress may even lead to great results, if handled well. For this reason, a stress-free life is not exactly the best way to live. But bad stress, if left unchecked, can cause a lot of anxiety not to mention the illnesses that it could trigger. Thankfully, there are fairly simple rules to live by to keep the anxiety and negative emotions at bay. And laughter is high up on the list. Here are some ideas on how to infuse a good laugh into your day.

Make it a daily goal

Make a conscious effort to get your dose of laughter every single day. Regardless of how good or bad the day may be turning out you always have a choice to find something amusing to laugh about. A little laughter may even turn around a bad day.

Begin every day with a thought that cheers you up

Think of a happy thought or something that happened in the past that make you feel good. Or you can write down the things you are grateful for. This could boost your mood and leave you with positive emotions that could help you deal with the challenges of any given day.

Know what makes you happy

Think of the things that make you happy and do at least one or two of them every day. You can also make time for exercise which is also a mood booster. Or you can take a short, quiet break to get away from stressful things. Sometimes just taking a step back to calm yourself can do wonders in keeping the stress at bay.

Be with happy people

Be mindful of the company you keep. Minimize the time you spend with people who feed on negativity. Change the conversation, if you can, towards something more productive or positive. Happy people do not spend time dwelling on negative things. They either ignore them or find solutions that would fix the problem.

Practice letting things slide

Taking all things personally can stir a lot of negative emotions. If you want to avoid needless stress in your life, you might want to practice letting things slide. Do not lose your cool over perceived or real slights. Sometimes you just have to take things as they are and calmly move on.

Infect others with your happiness

Be that person who exudes happiness regardless of the circumstances. It may be unrealistic to be happy all the time. But you can always choose to take the happier path than wallow in misery. And by doing this, you may be unknowingly infecting others with your own brand of happiness.
