Winters of North India can make anyone lazy. How to get over this phase?

I hate getting out of the four walls of my cozy house during winter. The chilly climate can take a toll on even the most active person around. This is the usual tale of every individual who loves to hibernate more than exploring the outside world. What adds more to the agony of a person who doesn’t want to skip the daily workout routine is the New Year knocking at the door. New Year Resolution is something people make to only break during this adverse climatic condition in North India. Sports and Fitness equipment in the Gymnasiums relax while others are lazily relaxing at their shelters.

How does one come out of this perplexing situation where one has to choose between coziness and staying fit with no compromise? Well, to trigger in the mind of each of the fitness lovers, developing the habit of practicing Yoga can be an extremely feasible option to look for.

Benefits of Yoga that one can reap without going for a workout

This science of staying fit and healthy is preferred by many for it demands no fitness equipment. It is undoubtedly the most effective and result oriented practice. If we have to compare the health meter of our grandparents or parents with that of ours, we will definitely have to face embarrassment. They are way fitter than us. Did they go to the gym? No, the word was Greek to them. With the growing trend of exercising using the fitness equipment in India, Yoga has lost its charm. Why not let History repeat itself this winter? Yoga has the following advantages-

  • It needs no major equipment to be practiced
  • It can be done with peace at home
  • One gets more flexible with Yoga. Family and friends can be involved in your sessions
  • It is cost effective too

With so many merits of Yoga, how can one not make the most of it while staying away from the Gym?

Indoor Gym Equipment can go a long way

For Gym committed person, nothing can come in his or her way of the workout. He takes the extra leap to get the same work done without having to go out. Wondering how? Let me cite an example of my brother. He works tirelessly at the gym but winter and the extreme cold of Delhi obstructed him. Did that stop him? Absolutely not! He researched and found out about the indoor gym and sports equipment suppliers in India. He had a list of them and finally chose Cosco.

Indoor Gym Equipment India

Now that he has indoor equipment, he has been continuing with his routine without a halt. When there is a will, there is a way for sure. By this, I want to emphasize that to fight this battle of cold this winter, one can take the resort of indoor equipment that adds to your comfort and defines class too.

This winter, don’t be defeated but emerge as a winner that knows no bound!

Stay War, Stay Fit and Stay Fabulous!

If You Grew Up Watching These 10 Cartoons, Your Childhood Was Epic! Cosco.in

If you ask me what’s wrong with today’s generation, the answer is simple, their cartoons suck! I watched cartoons well into my teenage years and would be still watching them if they hadn’t become so goddamn crappy!

  1. Tom and Jerry

Even though the entire series was just episodes of Tom trying to catch Jerry is every fathomable way and Jerry always besting him, I must say, it was one of the most entertaining cartoon I have ever watched.

  1. Dexter’s Laboratory

Dexter was the genius kid we all hoped to be. If only we could dream up inventions like he did, imagine the power we would wield on this planet! And of course, we would be smart enough to find a way to keep our annoying siblings out of our secret lab!

 2

  1. The Flintstones (meet the Flintstones, they’re the modern stone-age family!)

I know you sang the tune in your head. The Flintstones theme song is one of the most memorable theme songs from the cartoons of our childhood days. The Flintstones was one of the most successful T.V. cartoons for almost 3 decades until the Simpsons came along.

 3

  1. The Jetsons

The Jetsons even back then defined the future we all only dream of. Three-day work weeks, flying around in our personal jet planes and never having to walk again! Imagine the amount of leisure time we would all have if only the Jetsons utopian world became a reality.

  1. Scooby (doobie) Do

Scooby Do was hilarious and made us wonder what Scooby and Shaggy were really on considering they always thought that there were ghosts around when actually there were none. However, all that ends well is well because Scooby and Shaggy always managed to catch the miscreant right in time!

 5

  1. Power Puff Girls (Fighting crime trying to save the world, just in time, Power Puff Girls, POWER PUFF!)

As kids, my friends and I would always debate about which Power Puff girl we each resembled the most and everyone always wanted to be Blossom! The show might have been girly but I know of quite a few boys who watched it secretly as well.

 6

  1. Richie Rich

Didn’t we all wish we were as rich as Richie Rich! The rich boy always got his way even though everyone was always trying to sabotage him and steal all his wealth. Alas! Such is life.

 7

  1. Captain Planet

Captain Planet managed to teach children about conservation of our environment and being responsible for our actions in the most fun way possible. I think this cartoon really needs to make a comeback because preserving our planet is the need of the hour.

 8

  1. Swat Kats

Swat Kats was one of the coolest shows and had everything that children could possible want to see in a cartoon from cool cars, high-tech gadgets to bare knuckled fist-fights! Do you remember what the two cats were called? T-bone and Razor a.k.a as Bade Miyan and Chote Miyan in hindi!

 9

  1. Popeye

If there was any cartoon that could get us to eat our greens, it was Popeye. The immense strength he gained every time he ate spinach made us feel like we could become that strong too!

The cartoons is our days were actually entertaining and provided a lesson to learn unlike the trash they’re showing on T.V. these days.

7 Games From The 90’s That Are Played Even Today

The 90’s was a great time to be born in. It was before the advent of the internet so our childhood wasn’t spent staring at a computer screen but actually going outside and playing with our friends. Every game had a new set of rules every-day and the bickering fights that ensued were more fun than one can imagine. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and I’m sure you’ll feel the nostalgia of our child-hood when you recall playing these games.

  1. Gilli Danda our very own version of cricket.

This game is played with a large wooden stick known as the danda which is used to hit another stick reduced on both sides known as the gilli. The aim of the game is to hit the gilli with the danda as far as possible.

 

  1. Kho Kho

Kho kho is definitely one of everyone’s childhood favourites and although this game needs no introduction because of its sheer popularity let me elaborate a little. It involves two teams which are required to chase each other down and try to get the opposite team ‘out’ by tagging their own team players.

 

  1. Kabaddi

Kabaddi also widely known as the national game of India is incredible amounts of fun. The game might not be all that popular but is regaining momentum. There are two teams consisting of seven players, each of which have their own designated areas. The aim of the game is to go into the other teams area and get them ‘out’ all while repeating the word kabaddi without losing your breath.

  1. Catch-catch

This is the simplest game ever and the best way to kill boredom. One simply throws a ball to their opponent who’s only job is to catch it. Even then we all know that one person who had butter fingers and almost always dropped the catch!

 

  1. Chuppa Chuppi or Hide and Seek

Luckily this is one of the games that hasn’t lost its charm in the years. I don’t even think this game really needs explaining! It’s of the best games I’ve ever played. Running around as kids, making sure you don’t get caught are the fond memories I remember every time I think of playing chuppa chuppi.

  1. Chor-sipahi or chor-police

I’ve never met anyone who hasn’t played this game and I’m sure you have too. There are two people, one is the chor and the other sipahi. The sipahi has to catch the chor is order to win the game after which the titles are exchanges and the chor becomes the sipahi and vice-versa.

  1. Gully Cricket

We Desis love our cricket so naturally we’ve invented our very own form of cricket where ‘one tup’ is ‘out’ and the stumps are merely pieces of sticks or rocks we found lying around the street. And of course if the ball left the make shift ground you out!
