Hello world. I’m 45 now. You will say so what? You will say ‘age is just a number’. True. But it’s a wonder that I’ve lived this long. I nearly died thrice in life: at 3 days, 15 days and when nearly 18 (due to PUO meaning unknown reasons!). But the funniest parts are the symptoms – my mother heard me hiccup through the entire night when I was 3 days old. Seriously, hiccups!!! Guess, that’s why I’m still high on life 😉

So for the whole world scared to death (literally) about the Coronavirus pandemic and spending insane amounts of time in fear, introspection, retrospection and realising the futility of so many stuff they’ve spent large parts of their valuable life chasing, let me share a bit of the life I’ve been living.

My Mantra is to know the temporality of everything and honestly…

Practical Practice Management

If you are in a position at work where you are required to train others do you find it easy?  I have been training for over 23 years and there are many things that I have learned over the past two decades that have made training not only easier, but it has made the person who I am training have a better understanding of not only what they do but why they do it.

My training secrete is to make sure that the person whom I am training understands what their purpose is while performing in their position.  I have found that more times than not when people go to a new job, they are only shown their job duties and how to do them.  There is a lack of connecting the dots between job position and purpose of position.

When people understand the purpose of what they do and…

Right now, our workplace is closed as I am sure many of yours are.  I do miss seeing my coworkers and connecting with them, but I know that we will all be back together in the future.

As I was thinking about when we reopen our office, I was wondering if some if not all of us will feel a bit stressed and how to handle our feelings

Having open conversations about new work boundaries and how to handle work tasks without having physical contact will need to be worked out.  If we do not address this, we could create an even more stressful situation.

As a reminder of what part “humor” can play in our day-to-day work life to make things better and make us more at ease I thought I would re-post this blog I did a few years ago to help us all to remember that even…

Sage of Kanchi

உகாதி பண்டிகை அன்று (25th மார்ச் 2020) பூஜ்யஸ்ரீ ஆச்சார்யாள் (தெலுங்கு மொழியில்) அனுக்ரஹ பாஷணம் செய்தருளிய போது, இரண்டு மூக பஞ்ச சதீ ஸ்லோகங்களுக்கு விரிவாக பொருள் கூறி, அவற்றை ஜபித்து காமாக்ஷி தேவியிடம் வேண்டிக் கொள்ளும்படி அறிவுறுத்தினார்கள். அந்த ஸ்லோகங்களையும், தமிழில் அதன் பொருளையும் உங்களோடு பகிர்ந்து கொள்கிறேன். (On the occasion of Ugadi festival Pujyasri Acharya blessed us with a anugraha bhashanam (in Telugu) Where Swamiji gave detailed meaning of 2 slokams from Mooka pancha shathi and advised us to chant them and pray to Kamakshi devi. Sharing the meaning of those slokams in Tamizh below)

அதில் முதல் ஸ்லோகம், ஆர்யா சதகத்தில் 53வது ஸ்லோகம்
शम्पालतासवर्णं सम्पादयितुं भवज्वरचिकित्साम् ।
लिम्पामि मनसि किञ्चन कम्पातटरोहि सिद्धभैषज्यम् ॥
ஶம்பாலதாஸவர்ணம் ஸம்பாத3யிதும் ப4வஜ்வரசிகித்ஸாம் |
லிம்பாமி மனஸி கிஞ்சன கம்பாதடரோஹி ஸித்த4பை4ஷஜ்யம் ||
காமாக்ஷி தேவியை ஒரு சித்த மருந்தாக மூக கவி வர்ணிக்கிறார். அந்த ஸ்லோகத்தின் விரிவான பொருளை இங்கே பார்க்கலாம் – பவ ஜ்வரத்தை போக்கும் அருமருந்து

அடுத்த ஸ்லோகம், பாதாரவிந்த சதகத்தில் 59வது ஸ்லோகம்.

दधानो भास्वत्ताममृतनिलयो लोहितवपुः
विनम्राणां सौम्य: गुरुरपि कवित्वं च कलयन् ।
गतौ मन्द: गङ्गाधरमहिषि…

Happy Wednesday to you all!  I have been blogging for 10 years now and it has been such a great adventure as I have met many of you.  Now I haven’t personally met you but many of us have become blogging friends and even connect through other social media platforms where we have shared pictures of our families and friends together. 

A few months ago I started a Facebook Group called “Women in Healthcare Keeping Healthy” (please check it out if you are interested).  I have since met several amazing women in various fields of Healthcare.  Today, I would like to share a post from one of my new friends from this group, Ginamaria Suarez, PharmD.  

Her article on dealing with Anxiety has information that we all can use in our everyday lives. I have posted Gina’s contact information down below for you.

Take care,

Tina
