Every Akshaya Tritiya, people queue up to buy gold or invest in other valuables. This is because it is considered to be an auspicious day to start a venture or purchase something significant. However, if you were given an option to make it special, how would you go about it? Here are some new ways to celebrate the occasion this year.
Hit the spa
Do you feel stressed all the time? So much so that it is getting in the way of your daily activities? This Akshaya Tritiya, take time out and hit the spa! A rigorous massage will improve your blood circulation, thereby helping you relax. It will also help you sleep better, in case you are planning to celebrate the festival by snuggling under a blanket. Quick tip: don’t take to using your phone immediately after the spa session!
Do some binge-watching
Festivals are all about reunions. And when that happens, it’s also about watching one TV show after another. Of course, there will be endless discussions about the characters, or fights over the popcorn, but in the end, you’re sure to thank your lucky stars. Quick tip: ask your companions to rank their favourite series, and watch how things spice up!
Go on a long drive
If you hate the festival rush, then what better than moving away from the city till the din subsides? So, take the day off, get behind the wheel, and let the roads work their magic on you. Going on a drive is also the easiest way to connect with the world. You get to soak in the beauty of nature, try new foods, or even chat with strangers. Quick tip: don’t forget to add the song Crazy Train from Ozzy Osbourne to your playlist for that great experience!
Treat your taste buds
It’s a festival. So, no, you can’t possibly eat the same old dal-chawal. Instead, how about digging into a feast at the restaurant your friends have been raving about? Such occasions are also perfect to catch up with old mates and look back with nostalgia. And if nothing works out, you know what to do—order in a large-sized portion of your favourite meals. Quick tip: keep a bottle of antacid pills handy!
