The city of Rameshwaram is in the shape of a Conch. The place is  considered very auspicious and no agriculture, pottery is done here. The main diety here is Lord Shiva and his consort Godess Parvathavardhini who is on the right side of Lord Shiva. There is a Sri chakra established in the temple.

The Pamban Bridge: The connection between Rameswaram and the mainland India is only through Pamban bridge.

6 Things I Learned Writing My First Bullet Journal.

Image
It has been a year since I started writing my Bullet Journal (What is a Bullet Journal).  I can see a drastic change in the way I do things.  Being a Homemaker with a toddler running around the house I was always overwhelmed with the daily routine.  I cannot fit everything in the available time.
But after writing this Bullet Journal I can stick to my daily routine and my mornings are stress free. I can keep up with my  household work to my personal time,  surveys  and working constantly to improve my work.
Here you go these are the areas I can say there is an improvement  because of writing Bullet Journal.
Meal plan:
The meal plan is the biggest time saver. After I started planning my next day  meals,  I cut veggies for next day check whether all ingredients are available and my mornings are stress free.  Now I don't run in the mornings to prepare Breakfast and Lunch and I can have that clean kitchen by mid morning without having big mess.

I tracked my wardrobe in my bullet journal  ( see my posts on Bullet Journal,Live Every Day) for one month and then I have listed these 5 things to have an organised wardrobe.
5 ways you can maintain an organised wardrobe
1.Purge your wardrobe every 3 months:Every 3 months I have started reorganising my wardrobe and find it helpful to remove any clothes which does not fit, out of fashion, faded. For me this process of decluttering clothes was difficult initially but I made it ruthlessly to make an organised and nice wardrobe. 
2.Organise small clothes in separate baskets: Though I cannot organise in a professional way I kept those small items like socks, Napkins, inner wear neatly folded in small baskets. Those small square baskets available in any department store works good for this. …
