    Really liked the post as I believe in so. In the field of IT technology whether its web development, software development, SEO, Blogging etc. most of the professionals just lead a geek life and they forget quite often that they can enjoy life as well and get a bit social offline rather than just online.

    You gave some awesome things to be done to become more social, energetic and motivated day by day..
