Morning has a calm that dissipates throughout the day and only returns with the following dawn. Before the day turns into a flurry of sights, smells, and sounds, taking a moment to find your balance could help you carry that peace with you for the rest of the day. Taking yoga in the morning is a great way to find that equilibrium. While the world is spinning around you, your inner being will be calmly poised in Sukhasana (easy pose). There’s too much to do and see in India to spend your day sleeping in, so if you’re going to mingle at the local pace, starting your day with a little Zen should keep your body limber and your mind flexible for new experiences.
An ordinary grocery store trip to buy spices could be classified as a rather perfunctory duty. You may be restocking a favorite spice or blindly guessing at the flavor of a tightly prepackaged jar. A trip to a spice market is a complete experience. There’s no need to guess at what you’ll be taking home as the texture is readily visible, the smell will be tantalizing, and your mind will be wandering to thoughts of all the delicious dishes you will be able to make. In addition to the spices themselves, a walk through a spice market will give you the opportunity to interact with the locals and fine tune those bargaining skills you’ve been waiting to hone.

Communing with nature is often a peaceful experience, particularly for those who come from an urban environment.

Exploring trails and parks is an excellent way to commune with nature, learn the lay of the land, and meet new friends along the way.

Their spiritual master gave them Rs. 1 each and asked to fill a room with something they could buy from it.
