How to de-stress yourselves during exams….

Nowadays, there is much more competition for marks than the earlier times. Stress is taking over the mind of the youngsters. They are not able to do anything than taking stress.

Stress is the worst enemy of a student. It affects your productivity and only gives you tension. It can also give you headaches and higher rates of depression and anxiety. Sometimes you are so stressed that you take out your anger on others. This can ruin your relationship with them. You also sometimes get sleepless nights which results in bad health and foul mood.

Like every problem has a solution, there are also some tips that you must follow to de-stress yourself. You should revise everything at home that is taught to you on daily basis. You must maintain a timetable and start to prepare yourself a month before exam. Exercising and playing with your friends can help you to stay energetic and stress free during exams. Yoga is one of the best options. Set a time limit for a given task. Take short breaks after performing the tasks as they rejuvenate your energy. Always remind yourself that you are giving exams so that you can test yourself and learn rather than just to score marks. Self motivation is one of the best ideas one can use.

Apart from all these you should eat healthy, get more sleep and be away from distractions like mobile phones and televisions. Everyone should follow these golden rules to de-stress ourselves from exams and stay away from fear.

Waking up early

I am very glum today. My school organised a trip to Manali and I was very excited to go with my friends. But today because of my habit of waking up late I missed the train. I lost a golden chance today. I had been waiting for this day for a long time but because of my stupidity I couldn’t go with my friends. They would be enjoying, doing river rafting, playing with snow at Rotang pass, making snow man, doing adventurous activities, clicking pictures, cracking jokes, camping and much more. When they will come back and will tell me what all they did and show me the pictures I will be heartbroken. Everyone is upset with me because of my carelessness. My parents aren’t talking to me as I wasted their money. My brother is laughing at me because of my weakness of not waking up early. I will feel humiliated when I’ll ask my friends what they did on trip. From this experience I have realised the importance of waking up early. I also know that waking late can make you lose your chances and opportunities. From now onward I will always wake up early.

To study or to work…..

Our maid Seema, was a very hardworking person. She never gave anyone a reason to complain. She didn’t have much but was satisfied with her life and never demanded anything. One day after doing her chores, she was helping my brother in picking up his books, that’s when I noticed that she was reading the title of each book. Then I wondered whether she had studied or not. One day I asked her about her education. That time she told me that she is educated till primary level. Unfortunately at that time her father wasn’t able to continue work due to some reasons. Being eldest in the family, all responsibilities were on her shoulders.

Therefore she had to work instead of study, unwillingly. I saw the eagerness in her to learn be capable of something. I lent a hand to support her and taught her at home. I made her give exams and she passed with flying colours. Now, she is personal assistant of a businesswoman and handles her office. She is proud of herself and me. She also credits me for her success but it was her talent that let me help her reach to the top.

Importance of parents…

It was a dark and lonely night. I was returning from my friend’s house. The sky was filled with stormy clouds. Breeze was blowing along the trees. I was walking and was not too far from home when suddenly a strong wind blew and lightning struck along with it. The clouds were gathering and making noises. I started walking faster towards my home. As I was approaching I saw an ambulance near the corner. I went there and saw two little girls aged around three to four. I asked them what happened when they pointed towards the van. I asked a nurse the same question then she told me that there was an accident, a few hours ago. A drunk truck driver hit their car and because of lack of medical redressal two people died. An unknown phone call came to them telling them about this accident and when they reached they were no more. The kids were safe as they were sitting at the back. I asked them what they are going to do now. They said that they will bury the bodies and send the kids to orphanage as they didn’t know any relative or person who can give them shelter and take care of them.

I didn’t like the idea of such small kids going to the orphanage. They also deserve a home and loving people, and I thought of letting them stay with me. I asked the nurse if I could pursue my idea to which she replied that I have to become their legal guardian and adopt them for my wish to fulfill. I realized that it was a drastic step but when I looked at those two innocent faces, my heart melted. That night they stayed with me and I adopted them with all legal processes the next morning.

When I got to know about them, that horrible night, I thought that how lucky I am. I have my parents who loved me, cared for me, fulfilled my every wish, provided me a life and helped me in every step of that life…..

The old age home…

Today’s experience was an eye opening one. I visited an old age home where old people where living in miserable conditions. They were sitting together and were singing religious songs. Only a few rooms were there so everyone had to compromise. When I visited them I realized that they were very depressed. They appeared to be optimistic and happy about life but their circumstances revealed their reality. They all narrated me their stories and I realised that one thing was common in them that they weren’t elated to be there. They unwillingly came to this home because they could no longer bear the torture. I felt a volcano of emotions erupting inside me. I was glum and felt sympathy towards them. I was red with rage because of their families, that forced them to leave their house. But I tried to convince myself by thinking that they were living in a better place. I wonder how can people ill treat these oldies. They play a monumental role in our lives. They share the experiences of life with us, tell us the difference between right and wrong, play with us and show us the right path. They are the ones who care for us. They have years of wisdom. They sacrifice their dreams for our well being. After this experience I have started respecting my grandparents more. I spend quality time with them and ensure that they are happy all time. I will also sensitize my friends who live with their grandparents. They have served us for so many years now it is our turn to serve them.

Safety of girl child

This is a very shameful thing that on one hand we worship girls on Navratri and on the other hand they are assaulted rest of the days. Often the perpetrator is a family member or known one so it is difficult for a girl to trust anyone. They have no respect for girl child and take advantage of their innocence. The perpetrators must remember that physical scars remain for few days but emotional scars remain forever and girls aren’t able to forget them. The main reasons why such crimes are committed are because they think that girls are easy targets.They attract girls by offering toffees. Moreover criminals are not aware of gender sensitization and do not have self control.

This is a grim issue and shouldn’t be brushed under the carpet. Strict actions should be taken against the culprit. People should be sensitized about “good touch and bad touch”. Counselling of parents should be done. Influential people should speak up for this issue. Schools should teach students and make them aware about strangers. Self defense techniques ought to be made compulsory. All over security must be robust. Parents should make their children aware of helpline numbers. Lastly there should be quick and strict actions by police and courts in these cases so that a person thinks twice before committing such disgusting crime.

I hope that we do not lose out any other girl to crime.

To encourage girls to take up sports..

I would like to draw the attention of readers towards the need of parents and society to encourage their girls to take up sports in their daily life.

Some Indian female sports persons like P.V. sindhu,Saina nehwal,Manika batra delivered stellar performances in commonwealth games 2018 in Gold coast,Australia. They were hailed by everyone for putting Indian sports on world map. In 2017, women cricket team emerged as the first runner up after proving their mettle at games. Some women gymnasts like Dipa karmakar also excelled in their game. Mary kom,Sakshi malik and some more women are becoming inspiration for girls.

The main problem that most girls face during taking up sports is the mind set of the people. Most of the people have archaic mind set. People think that sports are made for boys while girls can only do best in academics. They also think that girls are physically weaker than boys. Parents don’t find sports as lucrative career for girls.

Sports has many advantages. If girls are not taking it as a career, they can pursue it for health fitness. We should improve infrastructure and promote female trainers. Girls should be sent for tournaments. Parents should be sensitized. Sports promote many significant qualities to imbibe in like confidence,cooperation,leadership,teamwork and many more. It is also helpful to girls as it keeps lethargy at bay.

So girls should definitely take up sports and prove that they are capable of doing anything.

Students using internet

Nowadays life without internet cannot be imagined. Students also use internet for playing games, chatting, video calling and for many more things. But these things are having negative effect on them. Their marks are deteriorating and they are drifting away from family and friends.

Students should use internet for gaining knowledge, reading about something, knowing about what is going around them rather than whiling away their time on it. Schools can play a monumental role in this issue. They should encourage students to study at home, tell them about games which can teach them while playing. They should organize knowledge quiz and competition relating to general knowledge questions, this will encourage students to surf for news. Vocabulary can be also taught by surfing.

If teachers and students will work together we can make India more literate.

Importance of discipline

Do you what one quality all successful people have in common? The answer is discipline.

You are disciplined if you follow virtues like regularity, punctuality, self control, time management and much more. Regularity means keeping an eye on your goals and chase your dream. Punctuality and time management helps us to value time and do everything according to it. Self control means keeping a control on anger, behavior, words and actions. It also involves to keep a tab on your routine.

Following discipline in our lives can help us achieve our goals. Enhancing our overall personality is one of its benefits. Imbibing discipline in your daily daily life makes you a well balanced person who is a boon to the society. We should derive inspiration from nature. Imagine what will happen if sun doesn’t rise on time, it will lead to chaos in the world. You can also imagine if Earth will not rotate or revolute what will happen. Discipline help us to become a regular and respectable person.

There are many living examples from whom we can take inspiration. Our honorable prime minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, Saina nehwal and many more. So if you want to be successful in life you should follow these golden rules.
