WOW: 30 Things That Make You Happy

I am a passionate lover of panchtatwas as well as Panchmahabhutas and the way they shape and make our lives. This is how I keep my all panchmahabhutas and mind happy. Be it sight, taste, touch, sound or smell and I will add thought/ mind to it and happiness is all we can give them to help them be in balance and harmony for a better life filled with wellness. So here I begin my list associated with well being and happiness associated with them.



The Fire element is said to be associated with vision/ or roop.

food/ Agni is surely the best choice to make your sight happy. Visual appeal and colour can soothe eyes.

I am a simple earthy soul who can be happy just with the sight of her kids early morning when she gets up.
