Escaping The Habit Trap

You are solving a word-problem and you need to add three 3-digit numbers to arrive at the solution. How do you do it? Do you do it orally or do you quickly pick up your pencil and do the math? Well, I tend to do the latter and I have been trying to get rid […]

Don’t Hide Your Pain

All these years of my life, I have wondered why students can’t maintain composure and poise. Even when I  was at my school it had always been difficult for me to concentrate on my studies because of the environmental variables that constantly affect me. But the fact that we all experience sorrow, barriers, and the […]

Prioritise Your Sleep

Ah, Sleep! A seemingly endless list of benefits for physical, mental, and emotional health. Even so, many people do not prioritise it as they should. The population of teenagers is still very uninterested in focusing on this topic and they won’t realise how harmful it is in the long run. Sleep-deprived people are always less […]

What Is Lacking In Education

One of the major challenges we face in creating a better world is giving young people an education that is more relevant to their lives.

It’s Okay To Not Have It All Figured Out

I’ve always been pretty incredible at overthinking and overanalysing every single little thing, thinking of the worst-case scenario just so I could be ‘prepared’ for things if they didn’t go ‘right.’ Later, I realised that it’s okay if you don’t have […]

You Get What You Give

My mamma used to say; what goes around comes around and what goes up must come down. Everything in the dark must come to light and you will reap what you sow. No doubt you have heard the proverb, “whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” Also, most people know about karma, which […]

Unfolding Letter To Younger Self

For every girl who feels that she is not the main character of her own story, this letter is for you too. Hey, mini Aats! I wish you could be me for one day. This letter is coming to you from your 19 years older self. Yeah am still alive and you know what life […]

Healthy Hostel Living

Hostel life, something that most of us have experienced, or wish to experience one day, is probably the biggest push towards becoming an independent, self-sufficient individual. From getting one’s work done to handling day-to-day chores that one doesn’t indulge in at home, to managing expenses as well as standing in long queues to get some […]

Social Media and Mental Health

That constant itch to get up and check if your new uploaded photo got enough likes, or if that one person saw it, or just to check in if there’s any notification, or message from someone, shifting from Instagram to Twitter to Facebook, only to find one of your friends standing under the leaning tower […]
