You need to know when to unplug

You need to know when to unplug
X
Hi, I live alone in Delhi. I work in a BPO and my long hours ensure that my house is in complete mess! I hate the look of it now. What to do?
Pratap, New Delhi

If you don’t put regular work into organising and maintaining cleanliness in your home, you can expect disaster. First things first, pick a few hours a week to dedicate to cleaning up your home. Hire help if you need it and can afford it, or find a way to actually enjoy the cleaning time, like watching TV or listening to music. Some people are naturally blessed with the ability to organize and stay organized but if you are not one of them, ensure you are a good manager who will be able to manage the domestic helps to put things in order.

My husband works in IT firm. He’s completely addicted to technology! He is obsessed these days. It’s affecting our lives badly. What should be done?

Technology can have a large presence in our lives without causing problems, but we need to know when to unplug. We definitely want to unplug before bed, as keeping technology in the bedroom tends to make us use it and glowing screens in the dark will help us sleep better. It will also serve as an early morning distraction and potentially make us late to work. One of the major problems technology addiction has caused is a lack of awareness.

I can’t sleep for more than 4 hours each day. I wake up and sometimes feel tired all day long! I’m 17 and feel bad about this!

Sleep is really important. It may actually be more important than food. It may even help you lose weight. If you’re not sleeping well, there are so many things you can try to fix the problem. First of all, stop reading your backlit screens before going to bed! In fact, just keep technology out of the bedroom all together. You also should limit your caffeine and other stimulants. Eating heavier in the morning and less at night can aid in better sleep. You have to experiment a little to find what works, but when you take care of yourself physically, in general, you’ll likely find that sleeping works just the way it should.

I am working for last 6 years. I haven’t been able to save any money. I always am broke! How can I improve my life?
Tejas, Haryana

In reality, most of us feel broke all the time. Salaries, income never feel enough! But you surely can try earning through other sources. The web offers plenty of ways to make some extra cash. If more work isn’t quite what you were hoping for, just make the most of being poor (or poor-ish). Live smaller, do what it takes to be happy in the limits. If over-spending is a problem, you need to immediately STOP. Get rid of credit cards. Don’t worry, most of us are on the same boat brother!
