Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Jul 3, 2018

It is not often that I get to actually meet the interesting people who are out there sharing their hearts and minds online. And especially not when they live on the other side of the world. But for Vidya Sury – a prolific commenter on life and online philosopher who lives in India – that was just what I set out to do.

Vidya is a writer/editor/blogger who has a lot to say about gratitude, smiles, parenting, books, happiness, health and mindful living. On her website, she says ‘My prayer is to inspire a smile at the end of your visit, perhaps with the desire to bookmark and return.”

That’s it. Simple.

Vidya’s not selling high powered courses, nor is she pushing any particular agenda than spreading happiness, one smile at a time. After our talk, I did indeed walk away smiling … for no other reason other than I felt myself relax, and shift back to my own peaceful sense of time and place.

If you’ve been harried, stressed our and tired lately, put your feet up and relax … and listen to a woman in India’s take on how to live simply and at peace.

I learned:

  • Vidya’s #1 tip for self-care
  • How Vidya unplugs – (this one is especially great!)
  • Some unusual soothing practices
  • The creative potential of good long walks
  • Vidya’s personal system for not over-working
  • The crisis that taught her how to live a healthier life
  • Vidya’s 2 minute solution for battling stress


Vidya’s website:

Just go in and meander around … give yourself 20 minutes of complete, sweet enjoyment here

About herself, Vidya says:

  • I currently work as a Writer, Editorand Business Blogger for my bread, butter, jam and sometimes, flavored cheese. I work from home, lucky me!
  • My second job is with CLINICOM, an independent ethics committee that evaluates protocols for human clinical trials.
  • My third job is is a combo of Being Mommy and Home Maker. I know. A woman needs at least two jobs, right? Ok. So I have three. No, wait, four. Shhh! Moonlighting is in my genes.
  • I believe that Happiness is a DIY project. I even have a recipe for happiness
  • I believe that we continue to learn as long as we live. I am a work in progress, just like everyone else.


Beautiful, right?
