Finally, ‘Diwali’ ka din tohaahigayaaaurgayaabhi. But, the festive mood and atmosphere at home are still ‘on’! Relatives, friends, crackers, lots of household work, Puja, special dishes, more busy schedule, all these and lot many more things put together, would complete your festival every ‘Diwali’. Even before we realize that it is Diwali, the day is completed and again we wait for the Diwali next year. This process has been following since ages. But, it is high time now, and we should change this kind of a life style of us. As even our right is to enjoy the festival. So you can;
Plan the evening ahead. Right from getting ready to getting your entire family ready for the festival. This way, when the guests arrive or when you start celebrating the festival, with the puja to the crackers, there is no delay.
The gifts you have decided to give, pack them ahead. The dishes you have made serve them in serving bowl much earlier and put on the dining table ahead. The diyaas and other special lights are good at balcony and in front of your home. You can make them lighten your home as well, but somewhere in a safe place.
Make sure all your valuable items are not scattered here and there at your dressing table or so on. Once, you lose them, you can’t blame any of the other members from your home, relatives or friends and moreover, your Diwali will go on in a sad mood.
No last moment purchases please. Atleast by afternoon, right from the essentials yo need at home, to the crackers should be ready and by the evening you along with that yummy food should be ready. This way, you will be having some breathing space for yourself, to relax and get into that proper festive mood for the evening.
Once you are done with the festival, and have some ample time even the next day, before getting back to the daily routine, then just leave the home the way it is. Do not start cleaning your home, despite you being tired? And the next day, you are cleaning the home, instead of just doing the same mechanically, try remembering all those moments, that you have spent previous day. This is what we call, post festive celebrations.
When you would handle too many things, it is quite obvious that mistakes tend to happen. If today evening or during the day, any mistake happens in your family or with you, just take it and forget the same as early as you can. Do not let the festive mood spoil. End of the day, Festival is all about enjoying each and every second right?
So, if it is a festival or not, make sure you are happy all the time!
