Celebrating Life. Here & Now.

“If we are ever to enjoy life, now is the time, not tomorrow or next year…Today should always be our most wonderful day.” 

– Thomas Dreier.

In every culture, we do have special times set aside to celebrate life or a significant event. What we also know as Holidays ! Something that we get so excited about ! For they play a major role in our lives and are intertwined with our physical, mental and emotional states.

fTake a break !

Our life’s effort is motivated by the prospect of a reward.

On a “ feeling”  level – holidays are a reward. No work to worry about. Just doing things that one wouldn’t otherwise do. And which matter to us. Stuff we can really enjoy and perhaps experience once in a lifetime. Pausing to celebrate life is our reward for all the hard work we otherwise put into our lives. Much like walking towards the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Even taking time off from one’s normal routine to have fun and celebrate life fits into this “reward” category.

Rewards can be anything !

Rewards can have material value or emotional value. Most of us work for a material reward in the form of a monthly pay-check. A few others love what they do so much – that the monetary reward is unimportant and is secondary. The feeling of accomplishment they experience is what matters.

When we achieve something that matters to us  – we are emotionally rewarded. The reward can be something intangible – but it creates happiness. This action-reward feedback loop is an intrinsic part of human nature and is closely related to the joy of giving and receiving.

 012_villa-fire-placeMake special times happen to celebrate life

Our holidays and associated decisions are often decided by others. But in order to feel truly rewarded and happy – it is important we do this for ourselves. That would enable us to reward ourselves while celebrating our life’s victories. Even the smallest professional achievement or a personal breakthrough can be a catalyst for your reward. And a holiday !

 

dsc_6964Celebrating the everyday

Any time we succeed in our life – a celebration is in order.  This is one of the ways we give ourselves approval . Whenever you find yourself  achieving something – it is time to reflect on your accomplishments, it’s time to stop and celebrate life. Doing so will funnel massive amounts of approval into your neurological feedback loop.

.Make it an ongoing process

Without a built-in system for receiving approval, one’s motivation begins to fade. If you see your personal progress as a reason to celebrate life – you are providing yourself with the fuel needed to stay motivated.

Personal growth is a never-ending  journey and it pays fabulous dividends. Approval is the single element that keeps the whole process running smoothly.  Make  your own times to celebrate life and your accomplishments. It’s a really powerful way to let yourself know how much you approve!

“The more you praise and celebrate your life,
the more there is in life to celebrate “ ~Oprah Winfrey

So Celebrate. Find Joy. In the Everyday. And on Special Days. Check out our awesome holiday options – each one offering different experiences across our properties. Hallmarked by our signature award winning service, personalised cuisine and curated experiences. We promise that you’ll be back for much more. Call us today on +91 9602091000 / 2000.

Celebrating Friendship – Tree of Life Style

In our fast-paced world and one which sees rapidly changing lifestyles, attitudes and people – our relationships are also victim of the change. And sometimes it’s good. Mostly it isn’t.

Your relationships are by what a lot of people will evaluate you. Personally and professionally, too.  It’s psychological – because we are incredibly quick to judge people on the basis of appearances.

Since we live in times that are now incredibly me-centric, a lot of us are more about what we aren’t getting out of life. And that includes our relationships.  We believe there’s nothing really wrong with wanting something and having it. After all – we can give more of ourselves if we are content with what we have, right ? But the chances of making that happen increase exponentially when we make the effort and begin the giving process ourselves rather than waiting for the other person to do so.

So here’s what we think you could do to make your most important relationship – your happiest and most meaningful one. With a bit of help from us.

13531870_1127243767332162_228221248_nIt all comes down to being each other’s best friends. And you needn’t have only one best friend – there could be others too. A network or a support system of good friends who play different roles and come in to complete different parts of you and your life are a great way to stay sane. A spouse or a partner may be no less. Or even be first among equals.

One way to do it is to list out the qualities you’d want in an ideal friend. Nothing is too small or trivial to not be on that list – if it matters to you.

Next up – become that person ! Psychologist John Gottman has spent years researching what makes relationships flourish or fall apart. He found that lasting relationships come down to friendship. Couples who stay together make a conscious effort to connect, share interests, and meet their spouse’s emotional needs. So if you feel you or your partner need a break – get away to the Tree of Life to just be yourselves.  That’s a great setting to keep friendships in the pink of health.

015_Villa sit-out copyBe as active or as lazy as you wish. Spend quality time away from commitments and connectivity !  Score our Pool Villas at the Tree of Life, Jaipur for the ultimate in personal spaces. Our personalised cuisine on offer – will make fine-dining a memorable co-created experience between you and our MasterChef with his talented team.

We’re also a great place for groups of friends to meet and re-live the most significant times of their lives. With just 13 villas spread out over 7 acres of space in Jaipur – it’s a great place to host intimate reunions, celebrate anniversaries or any day that matters. And create a lifetime of memories.

13745146_1403274473032814_329483544_nIrrespective of how long it takes to achieve it – let’s not forget – Friendships are like gardens; they must be cultivated and invested in. The key is to be consistent and persistent—without expectations. It’s amazing what can happen when we assume the best, give our best and and stay meaningfully engaged with those who matter. After all – our world is a reflection of who we are and what we do. That’s physics and not some mumbo-jumbo !

So if you believe in that a solid friendship is the foundation of everything – head over to the Tree of Life. Celebrate Friendship with us this coming Friendship Day that falls on August 7th, 2016.

Bring back Romance at the Tree of Life

Relationships take a lot of working on – if they matter to us. Especially in the early days when we’re trying to make things happen. So all the hard work is a breeze. It’s fun. It’s amazing and we’re actually investing in ourselves. Nothing else matters.
Once you live together – and after a while, the mundane rears its head. The beautiful moments aren’t beautiful anymore. There are bills to pay, work to do, leaky faucets, crying babies, difficult parents, career challenges with hardly any scope for “ us ” time. You may even feel that you aren’t important to each other. But deep down you know that’s not true, it’s just that the stress of life has become overwhelming. And if you want your relationship to go back to where it began – or at least to capture some of that magic again, read on !

It’s actually quite simple. All one needs to do is to clear the clutter surrounding a relationship and get back to making that effort to fit love and caring into your schedules ! Treat each other like you did when you were dating. And voila ! You’ll find the magic again ! With a little help from the Tree of Life – here’s what you can do to make things the way they were !

Shut out the worldIn-Villa Dining

That means no distractions. While we do offer wi-fi – we’d rather you don’t make much use of it ! Max out on your time together. Everything else can wait till you get back !. Focus on each other. Possibly – just like during meditation, it’s a mind exercise that might need a little retraining but it will happen. And practice always makes perfect !

Give and only give.

And that’s all about giving of yourself – although a few gifts along the way wouldn’t hurt ! Do stuff that makes them happy. If you want love – then be lovable ! Refresh, revive and renew your commitment to each other.
