6 months of paid maternity leave! Sounds yay, eh? Actually, it doesn’t. And I have good reasons to say so. Some of us women might have been elated at the announcement, but not me. Yes, I am not very happy with the new 6 months paid maternity leave law that has come to force a few weeks ago. Sounds totally gross? Well, I do have good reasons. I started off my corporate journey shortly after completing my education, slowly building my skills up and taking on the levels one by one. Every time I appeared for interviews, I was asked when I was getting married. Why, companies are not sure if a woman will continue working after getting married and no one wished to waste their resources on training someone who’d eventually quit the job to balance her personal life. After I was married, I was marred with yet another personal question -‘When do I plan to start a family?” It seemed everyone- from my current boss to the hopeful future one, from the HR department to my competitive co-workers- were more interested than me – as to when I am having a baby.

Cellulite plagues women of all shapes, sizes and ages. Nearly 90% of women complain of cellulite. Though cellulite is more prominent in fat or overweight people, even the women on the thin side have complained of it as well.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the layer(s) of fat that gets deposited beneath the skin. It gives a dimpled, bumpy and lumpy look to the skin and is most often noticeable at the hips, abdomen and the thighs. Since these areas are fat prone in women, you will find more women with cellulite. Cellulite pushes against the connective tissues under the skin, giving you that wrinkled, curled up, bulging look at the top. Cellulite is not a ‘fat only’ thing, though losing weight can help you get rid of cellulite as well. It is not really harmful, but many women want to get rid of it because of the way it looks. It is often less noticeable on darker skin and the wrinkles can be easily covered by using a sunscreen.
What Causes Cellulite?
Not really well-understood, but cellulite is thought to be caused by either one or more of the below mentioned reasons:
Hormonal issues: Thyroid, estrogen,....

Unlike women who undergo physical changes once they get pregnant and become mothers, the changes that men experience on becoming fathers are not seen outside. However, just like women, men’s physical chemistry also undergoes changes – majorly they experience a significant drop in their testosterone levels, and other hormones too change to make them more nurturing and caring for their family. And there is a plus to these hormonal changes – lower levels of testosterone are linked to a reduced risks of prostrate cancer and higher cholesterol. Father’s too become as involved as moms in their kids’, and in fact belong to a group of mammal species where fathers play a vital role in the upbringing of their children. And mind you, this group is mad up of less than 6% of mammals! Now that is something to be proud of, isn’t it?

While I have been far from being the perfect mother or wife, but I have always believed in living a balanced life. As working mothers, I am sure we all have gone through our share of feelings of guilt and stress because of divided attention between work and family. There are plenty of things that we can do to live a happy and successful life beyond our family and career, but it is important that we find the right balance between these two. And this is where most of us struggle. From my own experience I have learned that if the proper balance between our family and career is not achieved, every part of our life is likely to suffer the consequences. The key here is to focus on a plan, get organized, and strike the right balance between work life and motherhood.
