Balancing our lifestyle

13/10/2020

The National Statistical Office (NSO) has conducted a survey for the first time which shows how much time the Indians spend 24 hours a day. This time survey was conducted between January to December last year and it revealed many important information which can prove to be very useful in policy making as well as in employing lifestyle. The corona epidemic has messed up the way we live. It was not unnatural for us to wish that we will regain the pride of our destroyed ideal and balanced life once again and our lifestyle will have achieved the same harmony and balance of our life. But after the complex seven months of the corona have been observed, the value of life and values in our social, family and personal life is seen to be fragmented. Running in the courtyard, river-mountain games, other household games, pickle jars, sheets filled with homemade chips dripping of water from clothes and blowing rain scenes reminded us of those golden days of life when life was so carefree but happy and balanced. Every person wants to upgrade life, but our progress gets blocked; when we stop paying attention to our shortcomings and errors. This situation causes man to do such things which later prove to be harmful for him. Our flawed lifestyle fulfills the right thing. If there is an unbalanced life, a man cannot think positively. The point to consider is, with what purpose should life be lived? This question should be in front of everyone, why am I living? If we consider the purpose of life, a new truth will emerge and the question of lifestyle will also come up.
In our families, food habits, ways of living and costumes have gone from home that our culture and cultural identity has been tarnished. The internet and the small-screen storm have made the whole world a family, but in this culture there is no resemblance of emotion, blood relation or family relationship. Not only this, indolence and apathy is also falling in this lifestyle. All of them are putting oil in the lamps of their own interests. In the dark corridors of narrow thinking, inverted faces and human relationships are sobbing.
While the activities related to earning are accounted for in the GDP, no attempt was made to assess the time taken by the countrymen in non-economic activities. If the same survey were to take place during lockdown, then this general and informal observation would have been an accurate investigation of how women have lost their midday sleep by staying in a men's house. The workings and labor of domestic women are never evaluated, if such an assessment is made then their contribution to GDP is not less. When moodiness remains, morale cannot increase. If morale is not practiced, how will the determination be strong? Different kinds of waves are arising in the mind. The mind is not ready to settle down even for a moment. There is no satisfaction anywhere. Tata, Birla, Reliance, which are counted among the number one industrial houses of the country, are now selling vegetables. They have departmental stores in big cities. It includes oil, spices and all the things used in daily work. Now they are taking the livelihood of the small shopkeeper. How is satisfaction? Yoga is the only means of peace, contentment and fulfillment. That is why Shri Krishna has asked Arjuna that you become satisfied and become a yogi. After being satisfied, you will attain the status you want to be. After being satisfied, there will be no fascination, nor will aspiration remain. This satisfaction contains the source of prosperity of life, so it is necessary to include yoga in daily life.
