Let's talk about the biggest menace of our times - Porn!

And how to get rid of this horrible addiction?

-- A thread --
First things first, there are many people who are addicted to watching porn.

So, if you are addicted to it then don't panic because you aren't the only one.

Let's look at the ill effects of porn and how it destroys your life.
Watching porn can really screw your head up!

- Alone
- Broken
- Hopeless
- Worthless
- Unwanted
- Insignificant
- Incompetent

I know these are horrible words.

But these horrible words turn into horrible feelings as an effect of watching porn.
On the internet, porn is the most addictive thing.

In fact, when you watch it like an addict, it changes your brain, literally.

There are many other risks of watching porn.

Let's discuss them below!
Mood Disorders:

Your emotions are directly related to what you feed your brain and now that your brain has changed due to excessive consumption of porn, how can your emotions be unaffected?!

Porn makes your mood:

- Irritable
- Depressed
- Anxious & fearful
- Gives Mood swings
One of the scariest effects of watching porn is that you start objectifying people sexually. As a result you start

- Looking at children sexually
- Judging people on their body parts
- Engaging in sexually harmful behaviour
Besides the behavioural risks, it also affects people around you like your partner as they

- Start viewing porn as "cheating"
- Start feeling insecure because of porn
- Feel difficulty in connecting emotionally
- Do not feel the emotional closeness that they expect
Besides all, it puts you in a vicious cycle of

- Experiencing guilt
- Loss of personal integrity
- Feeling controlled by porn (Just imagine!!!!)
- Repeated failed efforts to stop this addiction
And the worst of all, it blocks your growth as you start neglecting the areas of your life that truly help you evolve as a person like:

- Career
- Family life
- Personal finances
- Spirituality
So, what's the solution and how to get over this addiction?

First things first, admit it that you are addicted to porn and need some kind of intervention.

1. Get rid of all porn in your laptop:

- Delete that folder
- Block the adult websites
- Throw those adult magazines
2. Engage yourself:

Engage yourself in something that will positively engage you and more importantly do something that builds you a community of people.

This will help you get out of that vicious cycle of going back to watching porn in your free time.
3. Have real people in your life:

If you are a man, have real female friends.

If you are a woman then be friends with men.

This will help you know the reality of opposite sex and will help you avoid objectifying them.
4. Make a Decision:

Once you have decided to quit porn, stand with the decision.

Follow all the points above and keep yourself away from this horrible addiction.

A strong stand is the bedrock of life-changing actions.

So do not budge!

Today I turned 30.

Here are 7 things I wish I knew about life at 20.

Here you go!

1. Find a spiritual master

There is nothing that grace of Guru can't do. It can make a

- Illiterate person become a scholar
- Disable person climb a mountain
- Show direction to a lost soul
I know a guru is sent by God when the seeker becomes spiritually mature but that doesn't mean you stop looking for one.

To be spiritually mature, you should be genuinely curious about life and ask the right questions.

Are you pooping right?

Why Indian toilets are much better than western toilets and what can you do to fix it?

-- A thread --
There are two types of toilets.

The western toilet where you sit and poop and the Indian toilet where you squat and poop.
In 2003, a group of scientists conducted a study that involved 28 people.

The participants were supposed to poop in two positions: sitting on a high toilet and squatting.

Scientists agreed that pooping was easier and took a minute less for participants who were squatting.

Intermittent fasting can make you gain weight.

I am not saying that intermittent fasting is bad or doesn't work.


It works great for a lot of people and helps them achieve their health goals as it gives them an 8 hours window to eat their food, giving their eating habits a solid structure.
But intermittent fasting will fail when you eat caloric-dense food instead of nutrient-dense food during your eating window.

Because every calorie is not the same.

Calories consumed through a cookie are not the same as calories consumed through a banana.

Recently, @naval tweeted about fasting.

So, I thought there won't be a better time to talk about a practice that has kept me in top form

- Physically,
- Emotionally and
- Spiritually for a long long time.

What I am going to talk about is very scientific.

Let's go!
When should we fast?

On every Ekadashi!

Ekadashi is a date in the Hindu calendar.

But for many of you who aren't familiar with that, it is the 11th day from the waxing and waning of the moon.

This is only for vegetarians.
For the non-vegetarians I will come back to the question of “When” a bit later.

Why Should We Fast on Ekadashi?

I will be first giving you the scientific reason and it is full of technical stuff so hold on to your seats & let's get started!
