Story Telling

“The world is shaped by two things — stories told and the memories they leave behind.” 
          –  Vera Nazarian

Storytelling is an art. It the process of using fact and narrative to communicate something to your audience. Some stories are factual, and some are embellished or improvised in order to better explain the core message. While this definition is pretty specific, stories actually resemble a variety of thing. Being able to tell a story that audiences will enjoy, remember, and engage with, is both compelling and difficult to accomplish.

Storytelling…….It’s Everywhere

Storytelling is a part of our basic human instinct. Whenever we learn, we try to share it with everyone we can find. We want someone to understand our situation, we tell them a story. So how can they improve their storytelling practices, what can be improved and what they can add to make it more compelling to their Audience?

A teacher should possess the story telling  ability . Stories in class should be such that children tend to retain more knowledge when they can connect it with a classroom activity. One of the most common classroom activities is telling a story. Children love listening to their teachers telling stories. While they listen, they begin to focus and follow the story through until its end.

As a teacher, this is exactly what you want: a way to centrally focus the thirty children you have sitting in front of you. Once one child follows, it’s surprising how one by one, every child will settle down and listen. They will stop texting their friends or making distractive faces at each other and focus.

The question is: How goal-centered should these storytelling sessions be? You can’t waste too much curriculum time simply sharing stories about your experiences at their age. Instead of using the odd five minutes of time you have left at the end of class to quickly tell a story, you can try to incorporate storytelling as a part of your lesson so that your students stay engaged and focused throughout.

5 Ways to Use Storytelling in the Classroom


When you know you are trying to teach a difficult concept, teach your class with a story of how you managed to understand and remember the concept when you were in their shoes. Explaining the theory of gravity is a hard concept for students to grasp, but by telling a story, they may understand that although we are visibly fixed firmly to the ground, there are forces of gravity constantly working against us.


At the start of a lesson, use a story as a way of introducing a new topic. If you can’t think of any with ease, you may find some ready- made stories available on internet that might fit your topic. Do remember that copied material, whether it’s written text or the spoken word, should not be used in its original form as you may be breaching copyright rules.


Occasionally, straight figures and facts don’t necessarily make for easy understanding, so throw in a narrative to help your class retain these hard facts.


As young people progress through their early years, listening skills become increasingly important, and there’s no better way to improve attention span and listening skills than by telling stories to keep them attentive. Of course, as useful as storytelling is, the stories should be relevant to the curriculum material for students to reap any benefits.


Many kids these days are completely turned off old-fashioned textbooks and even sitting behind a computer screen does not help much. However, storytelling with   a useful theme may engage the more lethargic learner. These are the students who you may engage the most if you throw in a few interesting stories to keep them motivated.

Storytelling is an age-old art shared among friends, families and strangers, and its presence can captivate young and even older learners in the classroom too.

Stories Come in Different Forms

Consider these 4 different types of stories and use any of them in your class:





Grammar and Vocabulary Through Storytelling

With these stories teacher can demonstrate your students how grammar and in particular way the tenses are used in storytelling. For example, if you’re telling a story of an event back in time, you’ll be using the past tense to describe the events. Similarly, a fictional story used as the basis for events you may predict will happen in the future, the bulk of the story will be told in the future tense. Of course, some stories may use different tenses depending on when a certain event is taking place.

One of the important features of storytelling is exciting the listener’s mind so that he and she were captivated by the story you’re telling. One of the best ways of doing this is to use appropriate nouns, adverbs and adjectives. Those that depict color and actions are particularly forceful when attracting and keeping readers’ attention.

Exam Tips for Parents: 9 Ways to Help Your Child Do Well in Board Exams

Guess how many students take the board exams every year?

1 lakh? 10 lakhs?

Last year approximately 27,36,883 students (yes, that many!) appeared for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) examinations[1].

If you add the numbers from the state, ICSE and other central boards, the number is mind-boggling – more than 1 crore students every year! Now imagine the amount of pressure your child might be facing before and during boards with such a competition.

As a parent, you cannot change this situation, but you can, however, take small steps to make it easier for your child. In this article, we will discuss some points to help your child score well in the board exams and reduce stress.

1. Help them Manage their Time

Time management is the biggest problem faced by students during their class 11th and 12th. With so many things to juggle during the day, from school, homework and exams to tuitions and extra-curricular activities, working without a structure ends up making their preparation chaotic and unplanned.

As a parent, you can lend a helping hand to build a useful schedule for their days and weeks to help them efficiently utilize their time.

I recently met a student Mehak (17), who was a humanities student and also pursued dance as a passionate hobby. She wanted to pursue a degree in Mass Communication after class 12th, yet her scores had started dropping sharply in class 12th as compared to 11th grade.

Her mother decided to step in and inquired about her entire schedule. She wrote down the number of hours she was spending on each activity (school, dance class, tuitions, self-study, etc.) and noticed that her tuitions were taking a toll on her and she was better with self-study.  She reduced her tuitions to 3 days a week so that Mehak could get the support she required, yet at the same time make time for self-study.

Also, she divided her subjects (History, Psychology, Home Science, Geography and English) per day and kept 30-mins for newspaper reading (helpful for her entrances). She also made sure that she attended her dance classes only on the weekends to maintain a balance. Gradually, Mehak’s scores started improving.

Hence, it is important to realize the areas your child is facing issues with and help them manage them in a better manner.

2. Being There Works like Magic

Being there with your child, not just physically but also emotionally, can have extremely positive effects on them. Students usually face an intense amount of anxiety and pressure during their exam preparation phase. Knowing that someone is always there for them can make a huge difference to their mental wellbeing.

As a parent, it is the time to minimize your outings; put a hold on your favourite TV shows and family vacations. It is a time to constantly support your child, be aware of their state of mind, and be available emotionally whenever they need you.

A few months back, I met a lady whose daughter Radhika (18) was appearing for the board exams this yearAccording to her, she was spending more and more time with her daughter and made it a point to discuss her progress regularly.

Yet, do remember not to overdo it. Learn to give appropriate space to the child whenever required.

 3. Use the Right Words

You must have heard a lot of people saying that you should never compare your child with others. This statement holds a lot of merit.

Every child is unique and you should celebrate their differences and uniqueness. There can be a designer, writer or even a dancer in your child. Even if your child is not able to score high grades in a particular subject, there could be a possibility of him/her being brilliant in something else. Every child has his/her own strengths and allowing them to build on them can help them be successful in the long run. Marks are not the only criterion of success in life and thus you should help them in identifying their strength areas (probably through an aptitude and career assessment) in a supportive environment with constant motivation.

There are statements that you should avoid, such as, “Your future depends on this exam”, and “If you want to do well in life, you must do well in these exams.” It is good to make them understand the importance of the exams, but it should not be done at the expense of their wellbeing. These statements could scare them and create a feeling of fear, which might hamper their performance.

You should simply use statements such as “perform your best”,  “It is just an exam, your future would depend upon your hard work and not just marks”, etc.

4. Monitor their Progress & Help them Create Self-Help Aids

Weekly assessments can help in mapping your child’s progress and figuring out their weak areas. Motivate your child to take up regular mock-tests in a proper exam-like setting and regularly solve last year’s question papers. Make sure that they attempt the paper within that time limit only; no extra time should be allotted.

Remember that solving mock papers is an effective solution only if they use them to critically evaluate their performance and find out their weak areas. Once they have completed the test, ask them to write down their weak areas, pattern of mistakes and areas they are comfortable with. This will help them in making better revision plans and improve their performance over time.

Students also get confused in certain types of areas and lose marks, such as Which formula to apply when? Who was the last Mughal Emperor? What is Newton’s Law of Inertia? To help them with this, you can advise them to create self-help aids such as small sheets or flash cards with mathematical formulas, accounts formulas, physics laws, historical events, etc.

You can sit with them and take an oral test for such areas. Ask them to write it down again (without any help) and test them.

 5. Motivate Them with Rewards

Your child will perform better if you will set targets for their entire preparation journey and reward each target with their favourite items.

For example, Mr Gupta divided his daughter’s syllabus into small tasks by chapters. On achieving each task, he rewarded his foodie daughter with her favourite food items. This is just an example of a short-term reward. He also promised to take her to her favourite destination is she scored more than 90%.

Rewards can be set for both the short-term and long-term. Short-term goals (completion of specific chapters, improvement in performance on mocks, etc.) and longer-term goals (scores on unit tests, sessional, pre-boards, etc.) together can help your child stay motivated along the entire preparation journey towards the board exams.

You can use anything that will motivate your child. It could be a new dress, tickets to a sports event, allowing them to watch their favourite TV shows, etc. Avoid giving punishments, however, as they generate a feeling of negativity and fear in teens.

 6. Discuss their Exam Strategy

How to write answers, how to make answers presentable, which questions to attempt first, how to divide time between various sections, etc. are a few areas where your child might need help. 6 out of 10 students don’t pay attention to their strategy and lose out on marks.

Sit with them and discuss these areas.

For example, Raghuveer (16) was a class Xth student with brilliant aptitude. He was a sincere student and spent 3-4 hours daily preparing for exams. However, he was never able to complete his Mathematics paper.

His mother analyzed his answers and realized that he has a habit of solving the paper in sequence. The first 10 questions carried 1 mark each and the last section of the paper had questions carrying 6 marks. He was generally slow at the beginning of the paper, and hence was spending more time on the 1-mark section.

She suggested him to start with the last section first by which he could invest more time on the section carrying more weightage. Now, even if he missed out on some questions, then he would lose out on fewer marks than earlier.

7. Remove Distractions

Music, Chit Chats with Friends, Morning Walk, Texts – Every student has a particular distraction; all you need to do is find out which one is interfering with your child’s studies and tackle it in the right manner.

For example, Shankar (17) had a habit of listening to music while studying. He was not able to concentrate properly and this was affecting his retention as well. His mother replaced the music with instrumental tones to help him learn better.

You can, thus, deal with the problem by mitigating the situation instead of completely removing something your child likes.

Let’s look at another example.

Mr. Khanna was a father of a 16-year-old daughter who wrote her class 10 boards last year. She had a habit of visiting her best friend every day and was losing out on precious time due to this. She was also addicted to several TV series. He advised his daughter to visit her friend on alternate days and asked them to watch the series together when they met. This way, he helped her save the time she was wasting earlier.

 8. Listen to Them after Exams

The time right after an exam is very crucial. This is a period where your child needs someone to share their feelings, fears and anxieties about the paper and the impending result. Listen to their side of the story and give them their sweet time to discuss the paper without any judgments.

Even if they have performed well, they need a pat on the back.
Avoid scrutinizing the paper at length to point out the mistakes they committed. While we may think that this helps the child learn from their mistakes, it does more harm than good by bringing down their morale, especially right after they have put in all their efforts into the examination.

If you wish to help the child learn from their mistakes, do it 2-3 days after the examination (avoid negative statements here too and focus on constructive feedback).
Once they complete their story, ask them questions regarding their plan of action for the next exam.

 9. Monitor and Identify any Warning Signs

No matter how well prepared a student is, they tend to feel anxious during exams and are worried about their results. It is really important to ensure their mental well-being by checking with them at regular intervals. While being nervous/anxious to some extent is normal, but if the child is using negative statements such as “I can’t do it”, “I am a failure”, I won’t be able to do anything”, then it could be cause for alarm.

There are some other signs in extreme cases, such as loss of appetite, irregular sleeping pattern, irritated mood, anger issues, loss of patience, etc. that could indicate that the child is not keeping well, or is taking undue stress. Keep a check! If you observe any odd behaviour or changes, it is the time for you to intervene. Talk to them about it or involve their sister/brother to help.


Every child is different, and no one knows your child better than you do. It is great to be involved in helping your child with his/her preparations, but you should know where to draw a line. If your child feels you are interfering in their life at any point, talk to them openly to understand their requirements and give space whenever required.

Be with them and let them grow.

Do you have any such experiences with your child? If so, please share with us in the comments!

“Empower To Transform”

Why this book?

Growing up, I witnessed first-hand how society treated women unfairly. At home, most mothers were tasked only with domestic duties, and family decisions were always decided by men. As I furthered my studies at the university, I couldn’t help but notice the senior positions such as chancellors, dean of studies, and head of departments were always occupied by men. Another observation that I made was that programs or courses that were perceived as ‘complex’ had more male professors than their female counterparts.

These observations got me thinking, why is the society set up that way? And as my young mind tried to make sense of all these things, I graduated and joined the job market. After years of being in the financial services industry, I couldn’t help but ponder on how greatly gender inequality has infiltrated our organizations and society in general.

My key motivation behind writing Empower to Transform was my vision of a society where women have equal opportunities to men.

The journey of writing this book started on one fine evening after coming across a news story on how the Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increase of incidents in domestic violence.

And as if that’s not enough, the same women were also overburdened by domestic chores. After looking up the matter even further, I realized that the effects of the pandemic were particularly more severe to women than men. Females who had to work at home found it next to impossible to operate under distractions from kids, their husbands, and the chores they had to do. Fast forward towards the end of the pandemic, most women couldn’t return to their jobs because of falling behind on many projects.

Writing this book was quite interesting for me. And I have to say that I really enjoyed discovering new ideas related to empowering women to transform.

About the book

“Empower to Transform” is an in-depth analysis of gender inequality and some of the concepts that revolve around it. This aspect that has received a lot of attention from researchers still remains a mystery to most people. Due to the lack of understanding on the matter, most women find themselves unable to pull through from the chains that oppress and prevent them from achieving success.

This analysis starts by exploring the effects and dangers of atrocities on women. It then digs deeper to matters related to equality at home and work, diversity and inclusion, women in leadership, role of men in women empowerment and empower to transform.

Other than introducing the society to the merits of women empowerment, this is a guide that will motivate and inspire women of all ages, races and ethnicities to revolt against the social injustice that they face.

It’s not your ordinary self-help book as it dives into the core issues that need to be addressed when it comes to empowering women. That aside, this book also touches on some of the most sensitive topics such as diversity and inclusion which not only affect women but also people of different races.

Full of well-researched and discussed topics, this is a book that will change your perspective towards gender equality. Written for both women and men, “Empower to Transform” leaves you with a lot of valuable information long after you have turned the final page.

The Miracle of Appreciation

The miracle of appreciation:-

 Sometimes appreciation works like a miracle. I cannot forget that incident when I was teaching in the class and one of the students was not listening to the class with enough concentration, but when I patted the student on the back, it gave him enough motivation. He immediately gave me the answer. I think that miracle happened due to the appreciation and suddenly I saw the growth in the learning curve of that student. That was very magical and he kept on growing faster in learning due to the appreciation. Now he always raises his hands up to give the answers. That we call the miracle of appreciation and I think every student needs that appreciation!!!

अभिक्षमता चाचणी… एप्टीट्यूड टेस्ट, विद्यार्थ्यांची खरी मार्गदर्शिका…!

बोर्डाच्या किंवा सीबीएससी च्या मुलांच्या परीक्षा जवळपास संपल्या आहेत व आता जेव्हा ही मुलं, विशेष करून इयत्ता दहावीची मुलं, जेव्हा त्यांच्या जीवनाच्या पहिल्या महत्त्वाच्या निर्णयाच्या उंबरठ्यावर उभी आहेत, अशावेळी करियर कौन्सिलची भूमिका अत्यंत महत्त्वाची ठरत असते.
हे होऊ शकते की, करिअर कौन्सिलरची भूमिका पालक स्वतः सुद्धा निभावू शकतात मात्र बऱ्याच वेळा पालकांचा विचार एकांगी असतो,

आपल्या मुलांनी कोणत्या क्षेत्रात त्याचे शिक्षण पूर्ण करावे? ह्याचा निर्णय घेण्याची खरतर हीच मुख्य वेळ. कारण एकदा का अकरावीला ऍडमिशन घेतली, की त्यानंतर एखादा विद्यार्थी, जे काही क्षेत्र निवडतो त्या क्षेत्रातून त्याला पुढचे प्रशिक्षण करणे क्रमप्राप्त होते. म्हणून दहावीच्या विद्यार्थ्यांसाठी तरी, आत्ताच, अटीट्युड टेस्ट करून घेऊनच आपल्या पाल्याच्या अंगीभूत असलेल्या कलागुणांना सोबत त्यांच्या आवडीनिवडी, त्यांच्या क्षमता, त्यांच्या उणिवा, यांचे योग्य ते मूल्यमापन करून, आपल्या पाल्याने नेमकं कुठल्या क्षेत्रात करिअर करावं? याचं मार्गदर्शन करिअर कौन्सिलर करत असतात.

कुठल्या क्षेत्रात करिअर करावं हा निर्णय खरं तर अत्यंत जागरूकपणे, समंजसपणे आणि विचारपूर्वक घ्यावयाचा असतो. मात्र आपल्याकडे विद्यार्थी आपल्या करिअरला एक तर पालकांच्या सांगण्यावरून किंवा मित्रांच्या आग्रहावरून किंवा कोणाला तरी पाहून प्रेरित होऊन निवडत असतो. त्यामुळे जेव्हा आमच्याकडे विद्यार्थी आणि पालक येतात तेव्हा आम्ही त्यांना सांगत असतो की करिअरची निवड हा सुद्धा आपल्या मुलांच्या शैक्षणिक प्रक्रियेचा एक भाग आहे. करिअरची निवड आपल्यासमोर उपलब्ध असलेल्या पर्यायांवर अवलंबून नसून, आपल्या अंगभूत असलेल्या गुणांवर आधारलेला असतो. 

अटीट्युड टेस्ट मध्ये नेमके काय असते?

एप्टीट्यूड टेस्ट मध्ये एखाद्या विद्यार्थ्याला विविध प्रकारचे प्रश्न सोडविण्यासाठी दिले जातात. याद्वारे खालील गोष्टींबाबत त्या विद्यार्थ्यांची तयारी स्पष्ट होत असते. उदाहरणार्थ-

1. तर्कविचार क्षमताः- नवीन विषय अथवा संकल्पना यांची माहीती मिळाल्यावर, त्याचे विश्लेषण करून, त्यावर निष्कर्ष काढण्याच्या क्षमतेला तर्क विचार करत असे म्हणतात.

2. भाषिक क्षमताः- बरेच विद्यार्थी हुशार असतात पण परीक्षेमध्ये उत्तर लिहित असतांना त्याला नेमके काय म्हणायचे आहे? हे तो नेमक्या शब्दांत व्यक्त करू शकत नाही, अशा वेळी त्याची भाषिक क्षमता कमकुवत आहे असे समजल्या जाते.

3,4. अभाषिक क्षमता आणि अभाषिक स्मृतीः- बऱ्याच वेळा आपण पाहतो की एखाद्या व्यक्तीकडे शैक्षणिक पात्रता खूप जुजबी असते, मात्र त्या व्यक्तीला लिहिता वाचता येत नसलं तरी केवळ निरीक्षणातून शिकण्याची किंवा निरीक्षणातून कार्य करण्याची कुशलता त्याच्या अंगी असते ह्यालाच अभाषिक क्षमता आणि स्मृती असे म्हणतात.

वरिल प्रकारे, एका एप्टीट्यूड टेस्ट वरून विद्यार्थ्यांच्या क्षमता व कल मोजले जातात त्यामधून त्यांच्यातील सामर्थ्य म्हणजेच बलस्थाने कमतरता म्हणजे व्यक्तिमत्वाच्या कमकुवत बाजू ह्यांचा अभ्यास होतो. ह्या सगळ्या क्षमता आणि साहजिक कल ह्यांच्या अभ्यासातून मग त्या विद्यार्थ्यासाठी कोणते क्षेत्र योग्य राहिल हे सुध्दा विद्यार्थी व पालकांसोबतच्या बैठकीतून ठरविण्यात येते. प्रत्येक क्षेत्रासाठी काही क्षमता आणि काही कल कमी-अधिक प्रमाणात महत्त्वाचे असतात. एखाद्या क्षेत्रासाठी लागणाऱ्या क्षमता आणि कल पुरेसे नसतील तर ते निरंतर प्रयत्नांनी विकसित करता येतात किंवा वाढविता येतात मात्र त्यासाठी काही वेळ द्यावा लागतो व त्यादृष्टीने जागरूक राहून निरंतर प्रयत्न करावे लागतात. ह्या करिता समुपदेशक चांगल्या प्रकारे आपली मदत करू शकतील. एप्टीट्यूड टेस्ट च्या अहवालावरून विद्यार्थ्यांना सद्यस्थितीत कोणते क्षेत्र योग्य आहे हे सांगता येऊ शकते तसेच एखादे क्षेत्र निवडताना त्या क्षेत्रासाठी लागणाऱ्या क्षमता पैकी कोणत्या क्षमता कमी आहेत किंवा एखादे ध्येय असल्यास ते तुम्ही गाठू शकणार का? अथवा ते ध्येय गाठण्या मध्ये तुम्हाला अडचणी येतील, हेसुद्धा चर्चेअंती स्पष्ट होऊ शकते. 

अटीट्युड टेस्ट च्या आलेल्या अहवाला बरोबरच, आपल्या पाल्याला मिळणारे मार्क, त्यांची कौटुंबिक पार्श्वभूमी, त्यांनी आत्तापर्यंत अभ्यास व अभ्यासाव्यतिरिक्त क्षेत्रांमध्ये मिळवलेले प्रावीण्य आदी गोष्टींचा एकत्रितपणे विचार करून करिअर मार्गदर्शक तुम्हांला योग्य दिशा मिळवून देण्यासाठी मदत करतात.
एप्टीट्यूड टेस्ट म्हणजे विद्यार्थ्यांच्या अंगी असलेल्या गुणांची वैज्ञानिक दृष्टिकोनातून तयार केलेली कुंडलीच समजावी. साधारणतः तीन ते चार तास चालणाऱ्या या टेस्टसाठी कसल्याही प्रकारची पूर्वतयारी गरजेची नसून वर उल्लेखलेल्या क्षमता मधून विद्यार्थ्यांना मार्गदर्शन करणं सहजसुलभ ठरतं. 

पुढच्या आठवड्यांत आपण विविध क्षेत्रांसाठी कोणत्या क्षमता गरजेच्या आहेत व दहावीनंतर कोणकोणती वेगवेगळी क्षेत्रं विद्यार्थ्यांसाठी उपलब्ध आहेत ह्याविषयी आपण माहिती पाहू.

आपले प्रश्न किंवा शंका असल्यास अथवा एप्टीट्यूड टेस्ट देण्याची इच्छा झाल्यास माझ्याशी संपर्क करावा.

IKIGAI| 2021-02-28


 Everyone wants to live a long, healthy and happy life. It’s a cherished wish among us that we want a life of longevity, sound health and ample happiness. Many of us think that it’s a God blessing to those who live such a dream life. But, there are legions of esoteric elderly Japanese who live a dream life we wish to live. Now, a question crops up : Is it possible for us to have a life of natural health & happiness? And if you ask the very question to Albert Liebermann and Hector Garcia, the answer might be “yes” as they did research on the secret of the elderly in Japan. Why do Japanese elderly become so extremely old in certain areas in Japan? What do they eat? What do they do to stay active? How do they deal with stress? What does their social life look like? 


On the island of Okinawa in Japan, the most centenarians live per 100,000 inhabitants than anywhere else in the world. Not only are they old, but they are still active and happy, up until a very high age. .The elderly of Okinawa never retire. The best thing about our ikigai is that once we’ve found it, we don’t want to retire. Some 90 year olds say they have so many plans and don’t think about dying. They always keep having a purpose for which they get out of bed in the morning. 

”Ikigai” is a Mysterious Word :-

The term ”ikigai” is explained in various ways. It can be briefly described as: the reason why one gets out of bed in the morning. It is the reason for one’s existence. It is the bliss of always being busy. Ikigai is actually a combination of our passion,  mission and profession. 


1. Stay Active; Don’t Retire :- It goes saying in Japan “Only staying active will make you want to live a hundred years. It is very important to keep doing things we love doing and do well.

2. Take It Slow :- As the old saying goes, “Walk slowly and you’ll go far” . When we leave urgency behind, life and time take on new meaning. Give up hurry burry nature and become slow and steady in every action.

3. Don’t Fill Your Stomach:- An old Japanese proverb is “Hara hachi bu”. This means ”eat until you’re eighty percent full”. The Japanese elderly don’t overeat and believe that eating a little less than you need is healthier. According to the 80% rule, in order to stay healthier longer, we should eat a little less than our hunger demands instead of stuffing ourselves.

4. Surround Yourself With Good Friends:- Friends are the best medicine. It is customary in Okinawan to form close bonds within local communities. A moai is an informal group of people with common interests who look out for one another. In this group the elderly are always there for each other when they need help or support. Whether one has financial problems or need help with something at home, he can always count on his moai.

5. Stay Physically Active:- Get in shape for your next birthday. Water moves; it is at its best when it flows fresh and doesn’t stagnate. The body you move through life in needs a bit of daily maintenance in form of exercise. Walk to work or walk for fun for at least twenty minutes a day. Don’t use an elevator or escalator, but use your legs. Moderately intensive moving your body equals a longer life. Sufficient rest and sleep is also equally important.

6. Reconnect with Nature & Give Thanks:-  Human being is made to be part of the natural world. We should return to it often to recharge our batteries. To our ancestors, ,to nature, which provide us with fresh air, sound health, food and everything that brightens our days and makes us feel lucky to be alive. Spend a moment giving thanks, and watch our stockpile of happiness grow.

7. Nutrition :- A healthy diet is of course very important. The diet on Okinawa is also called the ”wonder diet”. It’s for example important to eat a variety of foods and not to overeat.

8. Smile:- “Use your smile to change the world; don’t let the world change your smile.”  A cheerful smile wins a lot. It helps to make friends. One smile has the power to release stress, make us attractive & happy. Believe it or not, smiling can actually cause happiness.

9. Live In The Moment:- Stop regretting the past and fearing the future. Today is all we have. Make the most of it. Make it worth remembering. Realize that the only thing that really exists and what we can control is the present. So we should not worry about the past or the future, but appreciate the things that are here right now. We can do this for example by living in the moment, in Japanese this is called “Wabi-Sabi”. This means that we should try to see the beauty of everything that is perishable, changing and imperfect.

10. Follow Your Ikigai :- There is a passion inside everyone, a unique talent gives meaning to your days and drives you to share the best of yourself until the very end. If you don’t know what is your ikigai is yet, as Viktor Frankl says, your mission is to discover it .

 According to the Japanese, everyone has an ikigai. Some people have found their ikigai, while others are still looking, though they carry it within them
