I identified words that we often use but have no business being said out loud.They’re called crutch words – a collection of words we fall back on when we’ve lost our footing while speaking. Let’s see!
I would like to explain it in a very simple way that how to get treated when you are suffering from arthritis. The best way to have control on your arthritis is to know basic eight steps:
1. Get to know your problem:
The more you know about a problem, the better you will be able to deal with it, and the better acquainted you are with arthritis, the better equipped you’ll be to overcome it.
2. Choose your long-term goal:
Chances are you want to resume a much-loved activity like going for a walk on the beach, walking in a park or playing with the children or grandchildren, for example—that arthritis has taken away from you. The best goals are specific, well-defined ones such as “I want to be able to walk a mile without pain.
3. Decide on a strategy:
Once you have your goal, you need a treatment strategy for reaching it. Certainly, there are no lack of treatment approaches available. If so, you could take number of approaches including weight loss, an exercise program, or using anti-inflammatory drugs.
4. Draw up your weekly take-charge plan:
For someone with arthritis, that old Chinese saying, ‘A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step”, is literally and figuratively true. In creating your weekly take-charge plan, you decide on a short-term goal and then assign yourself specific actions for achieving that goal.
5. Put your take-charge plan into action:
Now comes the hard part: following through on the strategy you have devised. If your goal of losing a pound over the next week calls for cutting out 500 calories per day, you may have to skip that morning doughnut and afternoon cappuccino.
6. Monitor your progress:
As the week passes, note how well you have done in completing the actions you have assigned yourself in your take-charge plan. Congratulate yourself if you have been able to stick to your plan, but don’t punish or berate yourself if you did some backsliding. Nobody ever said that changing a habit was easy.
7. Adjust your action plan:
If you don’t attain the short-term goal called for in your weekly take-charge plan, figure out what went wrong and identify a way to correct it. If you lost only half a pound, maybe losing one pound a week was too ambitious. Or, as it turned out, maybe one pound was easy and you could safely lose a little more. Either way, you probably need to fine-tune your action plan.
8. Build on your success:
Success, as you know, is one of the best of all motivators. If you have achieved your short-term goal for one week, the momentum from the success will carry over into the following week—and inspire you to set a more ambitious goal. As you target and attain new goals, you will find yourself actually overcoming your arthritis in the process.

The scare of a virus has forced us all out of our comfort zones and discover things we never thought we would during our pre-lockdown routines. While the debate continues on whether all this is heading for a healthy future or worse, we firmly believe it all depends on a series of choices we make to reinvent ourselves while surrounded by an absolutely different school of thoughts. A part of these choices also affect our daily professional routines, which, if not tended to carefully, can have adverse impacts on our lifestyle given most of our day is spent working. So, to ease out workflows and help collaborate more efficiently, we’ve compiled a list of 5 apps that you can use while working from home or on-the-go:
Discord – to get together
Not going to deny, while we bring all the spiciest updates to you from various corners of Delhi, we are also practicing work-from-home culture within our team. To do this more efficiently, we needed a cost-effective cloud-based tool to communicate, and quite literally hangout with the rest of the team members throughout the day and jam out ideas in. And thus, after trying a bunch of options, we stumbled upon Discord, an American VoIP, instant messaging and digital distribution platform designed for creating communities. Users communicate with voice calls, video calls, text messaging, media and files in private chats or as part of communities called “servers.”
Trello – to organize tasks, thoughts & roadmaps
After all the communications happen, we would like to streamline our ideas and assign tasks internally to keep time-sensitive engagements on top priority. This is where Trello, a web-based Kanban-style list-making application which is a subsidiary of Atlassian, came in handy. In this, you can create task boards with different columns and move the tasks between them and even automate certain elements.
Telegram – to transfer bigger files
Between the communications and task management, a lot of big file transfers happen. Emails, WhatsApp, Google Drive and WeTransfer just don’t cut it. This is where Telegram comes to the rescue. With unlimited free cloud storage and ability to choose between compression options, we really don’t have to worry about losing file quality or the file itself since we now have a secure, centralized backup that is accessible to all our team members.
Pocket – to collect ideas and references
As much as we enjoy sharing all the information we receive instantly, it is imperative that we verify it thoroughly and add the Dillistan flavors to the content. The process is quite tedious given the large amount of updates we receive. For this, we’ve found Pocket to be just the right tool. It helps us quickly bookmark everything with just a few taps and clicks.
These tools form the most of our cloud-based workspace that enable a seamless workflow and enhance productivity. Please feel free to share which one is your favorite from this list or outside of it. We’d love to make a fresh community-sourced list of such tools at the earliest.
