Get Mapped to the Right therapist

The idea of GoodLives was born when Sakshi Shah and Lawrence Lovedeep, the cofounders of GoodLives; encountered people with emotional issues in their personal life journey and realized how essential it was to have someone you can share your problems with. They comprehended that a lot of people suffered in silence because they were hesitant to express their sentiments clearly. Also, they were unable to locate the right help at the right time and in the right manner. Hence, the motto of GoodLives is to make mental health services ‘affordable’ and ‘accessible’ across the globe. It will make sure that you always have someone who will calm your nerves down and most importantly, TALK to you! 

Having sound mental health means being able to cope with your emotions well while realizing your full potential, maintaining healthy relationships, and also being able to handle daily stress with positivity. However, the problem arises when people struggle with the above and feel embarrassed to seek help. GoodLives thus comes with a promise to live up to its name & helps individuals lead good lives via a therapeutic process. What is the main idea behind the startup? Adopting and adapting to destigmatizing therapy where mental health discussions are normalized and you embrace various forms of therapy like expressive art therapy and music therapy with grace. GoodLives will make sure that you are connected to a therapist who is right for you and hence advises you accordingly. 

This was a brilliant initiative taken by the IIT Kharagpur alumni for making the world a happier and healthier place to live in. We face a lot of problems in the present situation of today where the connections are slowly being lost. Society is in dire need of solution-makers and GoodLives provides solutions for all your mental health complications. Awareness is also created among corporate employees to ask for help when troubled. The psychiatrists, psychologists, and counsellors will address your tangled web of emotions and help you view life from a fresh perspective. The beautifully curated therapy toolbox of GoodLives also comprises self-evaluation tests, workshops, and webinars to help further your mental health journey. All in the end to empower people to embark on life with a simple takeaway, “Don’t let your struggle become your identity”. 

World University of Design adds more feathers to its hat talented students bring pride to the university

Chiseling its own abilities, innovating and emerging out as a winner is something that World University of Design excels at. It stands tall again as the talented students of WUD come home as winners of the most prestigious Design Challenges in India – Rugved Patil (M.Des Transportation Design) won the Automotive Design Competition (ADC) organized by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), Gokul Gopi (M.Des Industrial Design) and his team won the D’source Corona Design Challenge organized by IIT Bombay, A third team (calling themselves Team Pentagon) comprising of Abhay Pratap Singh, Anand Singh and Mehak Singal (all from B.Des Product Design) and their faculty mentors Aditi Parikh and Rohit Kothari have reached the finals of Toycathon 2021 – the inter-ministerial initiative of Government of India!

Rugved Patil stood second in the recently concluded SIAM ADC 2021 that revolved around the theme “Influence of the New Normal on the Future of Automotive Design” amongst one hundred and fifty odd design aspirants from across the country. It is a matter of utmost pleasure that this future automobile designer has secured himself a spot in the country’s biggest Automotive Design Competition showcased his talent by showcasing a segway type shared mobility solution for the gen glass for the year 2040.

Gokul Gopi and his team on the other hand designed a Japanese-inspired concept on “Sanitization of Rooms for Aggregate hotel chains that provide an online booking platform” keeping in mind the need of a post pandemic world – the very theme of the challenge this year. In an Open Design Challenge of choice, IDC School of Design, IIT Bombay allowed a sea of infinite ideas to the participants to present pertaining to sanitation, health and hygiene across industries and fields for a better India.

In their winning attempt, the team displayed a model that could let customers take normal vacations and feel safe back again allowing them to witness live streaming of sanitization of their hotel room prior to check-in! This would help achieve consumer satisfaction, enhancement of tourism and business building opportunities for holiday agencies and organized hotel chain companies.

Team Pentagon’s toy project will prove that superior toys & games can be created by Indians in IndiaToycathon is an immensely ambitious mission of the current government, under AatmaNirbhar Bharat project, inviting talented young designers and thinkers to develop the gaming and toy industry of India. It is organized by Ministry of Education’s Innovation Cell with support from All India Council for Technical Education, Ministry of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Ministry of MSME, Ministry of Textiles and Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

8 Good Reasons Why Indoor Climbing Kids Gym Is A Good Investment For Your Child’s Future

The arrival of the pandemic has drastically limited the amount that adults and children alike spend outdoors. Parents are working from home, and kids are doing remote learning. It’s important to keep in mind that as we enjoy the safety and comfort that our home environment brings, we need to find ways to stimulate ourselves indoors. Parents who can no longer schedule playdates with other families can invest in a Playhouse for their kids. Online, Riababy offers climbing gyms that are not only toys but are learning tools.

Here are 8 reasons how getting an indoor kiddie gym will pay off in the future.

1. Healthy kids

Staying inside all day can protect your children and minimize the risk of them being exposed to Covid-19, but parents should remember that even young kids need some form of exercise everyday in order to stay healthy. Having a playhouse enables children to move around and build muscles. An indoor play gym also lets them stretch their muscles and make their bones stronger, making them less prone to injuries caused by poor balance.

2. Motor skills

A playhouse is also a way that your child can practice their motor skills right in the safety of your own home. Riababy indoor gyms have various features like swings, ropes, and slides, pretty much like the equipment found in your neighborhood playground. Little toddlers can practice gripping objects by handling different parts of the playhouse.

3. Problem solving

Unlike other toys, a playhouse doesn’t exactly come with an instruction manual. You simply set it up and let your child think of how things are supposed to work. Aside from boosting their physical health, their brain power is also increased through problem solving. Learning how to get to the top or get through the gym without being told what to do helps kids to solve other puzzles in the future.

4. Independence

As much as some parents may want to physically guide their kids through a jungle gym, the dimensions prohibit them from doing so and that’s actually a good thing. Learning to let your child explore by themselves is key to developing an independent mind in the future. Letting your kids go on a journey albeit inside your house can benefit both parents and kids.

5. Less screen time

Families stuck at home may turn to electronic gadgets to amuse their children. However, Riababy offers parents an alternative to screen time with their fun and cute kiddie gym. It’s comfortable and provides stimulating challenges for kids who might be otherwise trapped in a never-ending stream of videos.

6. Cost saving

It’s natural for kids to get bored with toys once they have them for quite some time. Sometimes, they simply outgrow them and other times, the toys just don’t provide enough excitement so parents are forced to get more toys for their kids. Indoor gyms are perfect for toddlers and older kids because they get a different experience when they use it every time. It also saves parents money because these are designed to be used as children get older.

7. Values and sharing

Indoor kiddie gyms can also teach the value of sharing to children and their playmates. Kids sharing a playhouse will soon learn that taking turns is inevitable in order to be able to play with others.

8. Confidence

Kids who are a bit shy can let loose in an indoor gym because it gives them a sense of accomplishment after they navigate the bars, slides, and other features. This can be a good training ground for them and can prepare them for when it’s safe to go out again.

Riababy specializes in toys and tools that stimulate your child’s creativity and give them an enjoyable experience. Visit to learn more about their products or send them a message at to inquire about orders and shipment.

SBB to offer more space and reliability to customers with bicycles.

SBB is improving its services for travelling with bicycles for the 2021 cycling season. It is taking this step in response to strong demand and to insufficient capacity last summer. On key leisure travel lines (Bern to Brig, Zurich to Chur) SBB is tripling capacity at times of high demand from 21 March. SBB will offer customers with bicycles more reliable journey planning: thanks to reservations, passengers taking along bikes can be sure that they will find space for them on trains. The price of bicycle reservations is reduced from CHF 5 to CHF 2. SBB presented the improved services to cycling, consumer and industry organisations today and outlined future prospects for travelling with bikes. 

There has been a sharp increase in demand for travelling with bikes and holidays in Switzerland due to the coronavirus crisis. In some cases this has led to capacity shortages and dissatisfied customers who were unable to travel with their bike on the train they had planned to use. Around 80,000 Bike Day Passes were sold in the peak month of July 2020, for example, which is up by around 45% compared to the previous year. SBB also transported up to 15,000 bikes with self-service loading on the main axes of Zurich to Chur and Bern to Brig.

Broad-based dialogue and faster implementation of customer needs.

SBB expects demand for travel with bikes to continue to rise and is responding to this trend. This is why – together with Pro Velo and the Swiss Transport and Environment Association – it engaged in broad-based dialogue with cycling stakeholders as well as consumer and industry organisations on the issue of ‘sustainable travel with bicycles’. The aim is to offer customers reliable journey planning and reservations, to further improve and simplify services and to make them even more customer-friendly. SBB has a duty of responsibility towards all customers and wishes to provide services that meet and take account of the needs of all passengers as far as possible – including, for example, people with disabilities or families.

Increase in capacity and reliable planning thanks to reservations.

In view of the forthcoming cycling season, which begins on 21 March, SBB has introduced various changes to make travelling with bikes easier:

Increase in capacity.

SBB is increasing capacity for the self-service loading of bicycles at times of high demand on the key leisure travel lines, tripling capacity compared to the current levels where possible. These routes include Bern to Brig and Zurich to Chur. Additional capacity will also be provided on routes to Ticino, Interlaken and the southern foot of the Jura. Passengers will be assisted with the loading of bicycles by SBB staff on these lines where possible.
In order to expand capacity medium and long-term, SBB is currently assessing which technical measures can be implemented long-term to create additional bicycle spaces on various types of train. Only minor modifications to rolling stock are possible in the short term.

Reservation for bike spaces.

Customers with bicycles need to be able to plan their journey reliably and safely. SBB makes this possible on all Swiss InterCity trains with a reservation costing CHF 2. Passengers who made a reservation can be certain that they will find space for their bike on the trains. Trains are labelled with the well-known bicycle symbol in the online timetable. Bikes can only be transported using self-service loading on trains labelled with this symbol if a reservation has been made and a valid bike ticket is presented. Reservations can be made up until shortly before departure in the SBB Mobile app. They can also be purchased at the counter or several days in advance via the SBB Contact Center (tel. 0848 44 66 88).
The price for reservations will be reduced from CHF 5 to CHF 2 for a continuous connection – for example for a route with more than one section. International trains within Switzerland can now also be used for bike transport with a reservation, but prices and booking options may differ. Bikes can be transported with a valid bicycle ticket but without a reservation on regional services (R, S, RE trains) as well as on InterRegio trains (IR).

Credit for holders of the annual bike pass.

Holders of the annual bike pass will receive one-off credit for 25 reservations worth CHF 50.

Folding bicycles.

Folding bicycles can be transported on all public transport services without extra packaging and without an additional bike ticket as before.

120,000 people use bike parking, sharing and rental services each day.

SBB has expanded its services for travelling with bicycles over recent years, such as with areas for bicycle on trains and assisted service in the luggage compartment. Bicycle storage spaces at railway stations have also been increased by around 10,000 over recent years in cooperation with the municipalities which means they have been significantly expanded since 2013 to a total of 96 300 places (2020: +824) – around 120,000 people use bicycle parking, sharing and rental services every day.
