    5 things to do with all your leftover leaves

    COVID-19 wiped off an entire year. Which means you likely have a lot of leftover leaves. Here’s what you can do with all the leaves that you’ve accumulated throughout this year. 1. Take a road trip Interstate travel is now a lot easier. Instead of taking a flight, consider taking a long drive. There numerous places to get away to from major metros without taking a flight. Make that road trip happen. Here are places you can go to (without getting on a flight) from Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Delhi. 2. Head down to Goa Goa has been welcoming tourists from all over the country and the world. So why not head down there? Avoid going to crowded places, of course, but surely a walk on the beach wouldn’t be all that bad, right? 3. Fly to the Maldives If you want to fly international and make your trip an exclusive one, have you considered the Maldives? The island nation has been particularly welcoming of tourists from India so make the most of it! 4. Or consider Mauritius Every Bollywood star is vacationing in the Maldives. If you don’t like that sort of crowd, fly to Mauritius. Mauritius isn’t just stunning, it also offers a year-long visa so you can work from there long after your leaves are over. 5. Stay at home This could well be a great time to experience that beautiful home you bought but rarely ever spent time in. Make the most of this time out and spend a little time in your casa. Explore your own city, cook, or order in. There’s a lot to be done merely by being at home in, well, one’s home. Try it and you’ll be better for it.

    How to get fit by January 1

    Step-by-step guide to getting fit New Year is around the corner and you want to start it on a healthy, positive note. But if you’ve spent most of your 2020 not working out, starting suddenly on January 1 isn’t advisable. The best way to start your New Year on a healthy note is by starting small and starting today. Importantly, remember these few mantras that will help change the way you think about fitness. 1. Don’t go for crash diets or programmes Programmes that promise to help you lose impossible amount of weight in a few weeks are not sustainable. Such diets and programmes expect you to resort to extremes. Which is never a good idea. 2. Start small Accept that you need to lose weight and then start taking baby steps towards correcting it. Start by walking for 45 minutes every day. The idea is to not complete, say, 10,000 steps but rather to be able to consistently do something every day for a month, without fail and without giving up. 3. Make other minor changes Instead of doing a crash diet, start by making small changes to your diet that you can sustain. This could be something as simple as starting to have dinner as early as 7 pm or 8 pm. This is a practice you can more easily sustain than giving up carbs or sugar, or going on a cleanse. 4. Start with strength training Strength training doesn’t just increase your metabolism but also helps tone up your muscles. It also helps increase strength, endurance, and energy levels, all of which help you maintain your weight goals. Lifting weight is also shown to improve psychological health, by increasing self-esteem, and self-confidence. 5. Mix things up The key to getting fit and staying fit is to mix up your workout routines. If you’re doing the same cardio or strength exercises, your body will eventually burn fewer calories. By mixing up your workout routine you prevent your body from getting complacent and you from getting bored.

    Yahoo! Explains: Why Mumbai luxury homes sales have gone up despite the economic slowdown

    Luxury home sales in Mumbai have seen a sharp rise in October this year. According to an Anarock report, units worth Rs 500 crore have been sold since the beginning of Q3. In the corresponding quarter in 2019, the sales of luxury homes had touched just about Rs 150 crore. The localities that have seen this uptick are Tardeo, Mahalaxmi, Lower Parel, Worli, and Prabhadevi Average ticket price of each unit is Rs 4 crore and the sales figures have gone up about 230% in one year! Mumbai is one of the most expensive real estate markets in the world with prices rivalling New York and London So what is the reason for this bumper sale in a year when the global economy has slowed down? The government has introduced 3% stamp duty cut till December 2020 and 2% between January and March 2021. For potential buyers, this means savings of at least Rs 12 lakh on a property worth Rs 4 crore. It also helps that developers are rolling out lucrative offers on under-construction and ready-possession projects. All of this has helped boost the numbers in the south-central Mumbai neighbourhoods. Anarock’s research also suggests that the unsold stock in the same neighbourhoods has reduced by 5% in one year. In the same period last year, the unsold stock in the same neighbourhoods had risen by 8 per cent. So if you have the money and are looking to buy a new house, now may well be a great time to pick one up.
