Let’s admit it; the previous years have been very challenging. As a result, it’s understandable that returning to the real world after a year of doing nothing but binge-watching celebrity fitness videos can be a little unsettling. There is a genuine thing called chronic stress and post-pandemic traumatic stress, which might make you feel anxious about returning to normalcy.

There is no use in doing all of the stress-relieving things in the world if you aren’t taking care of yourself first. In fact, when you attempt to meditate, you may find yourself falling asleep because you aren’t meeting your body’s need for sleep. Going to the gym once in a while won’t do much to ease stress if you’re not routinely nourishing your body with nutritious foods. If you want your stress-relieving hobbies to succeed, you must first attend to your fundamental requirements.

Today, December 29 marks the 79th birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna, also known as “Kaka” of Bollywood. Undoubtedly, Khanna became what he is today because of his acting but also, some credit goes to the chartbuster music that his films carried.

To cite a few of of Khanna’s most iconic songs that were integral to his success were ‘Kahin door jab din dhal jaaye’ (Anand), ‘Jeevan se bhari’ (Safar), ‘Mere naina sawan bhadon’ (Mehbooba), ‘Mere naseeb mein ae dost’ (Do Raaste), ‘Woh shaam kuchh ajeeb thi’ (Khamoshi), ‘Maine tere liye hi’ (Anand) and ‘Hazar rahein mud ke dekhi’ (Thodi si Bewafai).

‘New normal’ is the most searched phase on Google in the year 2021

While the phrase "now more than ever" was the one mostly searched and used in 2020, it was the turn of "new normal" amid the Covid-19 pandemic that was used the most in 2021, according to Google.

Google's 'Ngrams' tool (launched in 2009 by part of the Google Books team) has revealed how words and phrases have fallen and risen in popularity over time.

Ngrams shows how books and other pieces of literature have used certain words or phrases over time, and we can chart their popularity throughout the years.

"One caveat: Ngrams currently tracks data from 1800 to 2019, prior to 2020, Ngrams' data ranged from 1800 to 2012, but the team added a huge new dataset about two years ago," said Molly McHugh-Johnson, Contributor, The Keyword (Google Blog).

This isn't the first time "new normal" appeared in the lexicon, though.

"It began to see small bursts of usage in literature and other writing in the mid-19th century -- though if you use Ngrams to see some of the examples of how it showed up, anew normal' was often in reference to types of academic institutions," McHugh-Johnson said in a blog post late on Tuesday.
