Be Trendy ,Be Fit..

Ok so! Yesterday I went to the mall.As I was waiting for my sister to complete her endless shopping I sat down on the bench in the middle of the huge entrance of the mall and suddenly started noticing how people follow each other in terms of trends .Its mind-boggling how one starts wearing a slipper with a pink bow, on another part of the planet and it slowly starts becoming a trend and spreads like a wildfire around the globe.Malcolm Gladwell in his book “Tipping Point” had clearly explained the reason of how trends are passed on from one person to a whole country.

When it comes to trends the one thing which I see every time I log onto my Instagram or Facebook is the race to get fit.Women with perfect bodies,detox drinks or workout videos you name it and it’s there.Military diets for 3 days or fit in a black dress in 30 days,It’s there for you and customized according to your lifestyle.Now this is what I call a positive trend which is definitely changing people’s lives.I mean I am one  of those lucky ones who has been thoroughly effected by this virus I may call it.I did lose 12 kg in 6 months after the baby because  of all those motivational pictures I use to get on instagram. Which  did not let me touch the amazing chocolate cakes near me and made me move my butt on zumba to shed the excess weight .download (6)

This over all has created awareness amongst people and they do prefer a plate of caesar salad instead of a slice of a cheese cake .Restraunts have added delicious options for people who want or are trying to get fit.To motivate people challenges to lose weight in so and so days are put forward.Here I totally give 100 percent credit to the social media which gave all of us a wakeup call.

Trends are there to either create a positive environment in our society and then there are those which have a negative outcome.People specially those who have  their names highlighted in the society have a great responsibility in spreading trends.Its Really nice to see many women who are no celebrities but are making their mark online to help others when it comes to weight loss or eating healthy.So kudos to all!!! keep up the good work and keep on motivating us to stay fit 🙂

Status Update!

“XYZ is at an amazing Island having the most delicious drink”……”xyz just got a new Louis vuitton bag from her very loving hubby and etc etc  I am sure you must go through this insane torture as I must say from these regular status updates on Facebook.How do you feel and how do you react to it? I may feel an envious kind of person to you ,but  I Do turn green or go into a trance of insecurity.I mean come on! here you are working your ass and trying to save as much as you can even if it means to sacrifice on having three decent cups of coffee at an high end coffee shop.Such a flaunt of luxuries do create a sense of insecurity around us.Such tweets have now become a culture . Many people have gotten so addicted to it that they just go to a shop to check in or from the time they pack their bags to the time they step back to their house from a vacation .Instead of admiring the beautiful views around them people are engrossed in making their profile full of their amazing check ins.I don’t entirely  blame them because then there are those who are highly impressed by those tweets and their fingers are solely for the purpose of pressing the like buttons for them.Positive or negative I feel such a culture is not taking the generation anywhere but would create even more difference between masses and might be a source of many negative outcomes to approach that kind of status in-order to feel less insecure.

SO what can we do? Well we can promote good stuff as well and feel awesome! like “I am reading a book at home and feeling blessed” or” I love it when I do nothing and stay at home with my hubby all day long”.No wonder sadness is around us even though we are excelling in all walks of life .The reality is that we have stopped admiring the little treasures of life around us.Just look around you and  you can press your LIKE button at-least a million times.
