Celebrate This V-Day with More Than Just Your Partner

Wednesday, February 5th, 2020

Tis the season of love. And while we cannot obviously contend against the pure commercialization of Valentine’s Day, that doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate it nonetheless. But we do have a contention – why is Valentine’s Day only about our romantic partners? Isn’t love just love? And don’t all loving relationships need to be celebrated just as much? Here’s who all we think you should consider celebrating with:

 

1. Your Parents

The very first relationship most of us had. And possibly also the one we overlook the most, especially as we get older, and find ourselves more and more caught up in our own work problems, personal lives, and social drama. Take some time and make a little bit of an extra effort to reach out this year. If you live in the same city, why not take them out for a meal? If not, why not send a gift or flowers over and surprise them. Just let them know that you’re thinking of them, and that you miss them. It’ll make their year, trust us.

2. Your Siblings

No one really understands the term “love-hate relationship” like siblings do. They’re both your best friends and your worst enemies, all in one package. They know all your worst stories, and every single achievement you’ve made. Why not be the bigger person and show a little affection this year? If nothing else, you could do it just to shock them into numbness (and isn’t that a great return gift?).

3. Your Friends

Your buddies, your pals, your friends. They’ve been with you through singlehood, falling in love, and even heartache. How about taking some time to treat them to something special? After all, when you really think about it, aren’t friends the greatest thing ever? They are not genetically predisposed to love, yet still do. They chose you, and actively chose to stick around all these years. They’ve seen you at your worst and did not abandon you. And they seem to be sticking around for more. If that isn’t true love, we don’t know what is.

4. Your Pets

Let’s face it. Do any of us really need a reason or date to love our pets a little extra? Not really, no. But why not? Take ‘em to the beach, or to the park, or even bake them a cake. Whatever they love doing or eating. Just take a little extra effort and make the day special not just for them, but for you too!

5. Yourself

They say that all you truly have at the end of the day is you, yourself. In acknowledging all those we love, and who love us back, don’t ever forget that one special someone – you. Not only is self-love and self-appreciation a must in today’s stress-centered world, it’s also a great way to stay happy and balanced. Because you can’t truly love others if you can’t even love yourself, nor can you expect that of them. As one great person said, “How can you expect others to love you, when you can’t find it in you to love yourself?” There’s something unique and special about you – time to celebrate it.

Spreading Holiday Cheer

Tuesday, December 24th, 2019

Tis the season to be jolly and that shouldn’t just be for you. How about we spread the cheer a bit? Holidays can be a tough time for a lot of people – those you are living alone, those who recently lost a loved one, those who are suffering from depression, those who are stuck in hospitals for their own or their loved ones’ ailments, those going through a cash crunch, and so many others. You never really know anyone else’s story, or what kind of issues and difficulties they might be facing. So take the chance this holiday season to spread some joy and just be a tad bit nicer (we know you’re already a nice person, but how about we pump it up a bit). Here are some ideas to spread some warmth around this chilly season.

 

1. Buy from local stores and artisans

Everyone knows that holidays also mean shopping. Gifts for your family and friends, for your office Secret Santa, decorations, plum cake, chocolates, it’s actually quite never-ending. Support your local communities and buy local instead of hitting the mall or large retail stores. It might seem like a slight thing for you, but it means the world to store/artisan you purchase from.

2. Donate

For those alone or abandoned, it’s an especially trying time of the year. It’s lonely, it’s cold, and it ends up being quite sad. Luckily, you can help by donating. Whether it’s gifts, money, or honestly, the best one, time. Whether it’s orphanages, old age homes, or animal shelters, everyone could do with a little extra love this holiday season.

3. Call up

It might sound like a weirdly small thing, but take the time to make some calls to people you haven’t spoken to in a while. Just to check in, say hi, and wish them happy holidays. You never know how a small hello from you might brighten someone’s day.

Top QTube Events for the Week (Sep 17-23)

Friday, September 14th, 2018

“Be happy, and a reason will come along.”

It’s not always easy to be happy all the time, but guess what? That’s ok. Sometimes just pretending to be happy, or in control, or calm, is enough to trick your mind to actually believing it. And once you’ve mastered the art of believing that you are happy, you actually become it. Happiness is not so much a goal to have, but rather a state of mind that you need to create for yourself. So go on then, get creating! Till then, have a happy week!

Here’s a list of events for the coming week, and you coming over will really help in making us happy.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

Great advice, but probably not so practical in day to day living. Because like it or not, we all have tough days, where it seems everything that could possibly go wrong, quite literally does. And we’re not even talking about those of us who are battling some form of mental health issue. Even people who have all of the mental and social adaptability to deal with life and all that it throws our way, struggle every now and then. So how do you battle those blues away? How do find the courage and willingness to get back up after taking a fall?

We don’t know, but you do it any way, don’t you? You find that little spark inside you that tells you to keep at it. But sometimes, even that spark can seem a bit dim, and in such times, you might feel the need for a little pick-me-up, something that will charge that little spark. It could be listening to your favorite song, talking to your best friend (or your mom), ranting on social media, or even just reading a quote or two. Well, if that last one does it for you, here’s a list of Instagram handles that can fill you up with some positive vibes!

 

Positively Present (@positivelypresent)

This account is run by US-based illustrator Dani DiPirro, and features a bunch of original illustrations, some with feel-good messages, reminders to keep your chin, and teeny-tiny doses of positivity. And they’re super colorful too!

The Good Quote (@thegoodquote)

If quotes are your thing, then this account is positive quotes all the way! Some are quotes by famous people, pieces of people’s poems, and even tweets by regular people. Basically, it features things to remind you to look at the brighter side, keep hustling, and never give up!

Power of Positivity (@powerofpositivity)

Even though it’s pretty evident from it’s name, here’s the lowdown. It’s a bunch of messages and quotes that will keep reminding you that you still have some fight left in you, and that if you keep thinking positive thoughts and staying self-motivated, you’ll be right on track to achieving your goals.

QTube Cafe (@qtubecafe)

Ok, so we might be cheating a tiny bit here, but are we really? Along with some interesting facts here and there, there’s also a lot of feel good quotes and sayings. And it’s also home for us (along with our other account @nsapartists for NSPA), so you obviously can’t go wrong there, right?

Jay Shetty (@jayshetty)

You’ve probably come across his videos on YouTube or Facebook, and if you’ve seen them, you probably know why he’s so popular. He’s straight up, down to the point, and always telling you how you can make your life, by being more open, more honest, and more happy.

Self Love Club (@joinselfloveclub)

Run by Mumbai-based artist Shreya Naik, this one’s on the list for two reasons. Firstly, because there’s obviously a bunch of positivity coming your way through Instagram posts. Secondly, because that’s not the only way positivity is heading your way. Shreya and her team often leave little note cards and bookmarks with positive thoughts and quotes printed on them at various public locations in Mumbai, for people to find.

Remember all those people who keep saying that social media is bad? Well, they’re not entirely correct. They’re just following the wrong accounts. And if you’re looking for a way to change that, well, we’ve got you covered, haven’t we?
