Why do people want to travel and explore a new destination?

It is really exciting to go to a new place for adventure and enjoy life. People want to explore a new destination and leave their homes to be relaxed and fresh from a hectic schedule. Many people have different reasons to love to travel and challenge themselves with new places, people and experiences.

Travelling to a new place also helps in learning and developing new skills or knowledge.

Seeing the world as more learning and knowledgeable than a high school or college class or workshop. Every destination has something unique to teach tourists and immerse themselves in a completely different world.

People may travel for adventure to learn something specific, a new culture and a new language and watch new customs and places.

People who travel after getting a deep sense of satisfaction with new skills and new insights that they have gained there.

Where you go, Go with all your heart

Meeting with people will show that our world and lifestyle are different from their world and lifestyle. Their view is not the same as ours.

Everything from work to family benefits to interests is different. These different cultures and living standards will also help us to consider fresh ideas and open our minds.

Getting away from home allows us to reflect on our life. Thus, travelling is one of the best ways to learn more about ourselves.

So much world, so little home.

Travelling to a new destination or country brings new opportunities and thoughts. Exploring another place will give a fresh appreciation and zeal. Once we are back, we feel how lucky to live where we had.

The shared experience among people brings a bond together. They share their experiences with people who bring a bond together. With the demand of today’s lifestyle, the family has not had much time to spend together. So, travelling is an opportunity to connect. Travel is a good way to deepen the relationship as well as friendships.

Take time to do, what makes your soul happy.

Travelling is also a great opportunity to make new friends — either locals or with co-travellers. Meeting and spending time with new people is a valuable travel benefit.

Thus, A trip is a perfect time to do something new and exciting, especially those things we can not do at home.

A lot of fun, excitement, and thrills bring life to a fresh mood. Travelling can be a great relief from stress and tiresome work. People enjoy travelling in nicer scenery and the freedom to do what they want, a relaxing mood and better weather.

Fill your life with experiences, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

Travel is particularly helpful for workaholics. Stepping out of the workplace is good for both mentally and physically.

A new place with lots of fun changes people’s views and renews our energy. Travel helps the mind and reboot in a way that we can’t get at home. It improves our mood and outlook on life.

So, I hope, all of you will be ready now to explore a new destination and share your thoughts and experiences with me.

Why human beings are so special?

It is said that human birth is not easy to achieve. The human being is a complex matter and many people believe that just trying to understand life. We believe that we have to try to understand life and get a grip on the many faces of life because it can be of great value to us to learn fundamental principles of how life is lived fullest. Sometimes, we have to avoid hundreds of extremes, but the other time, it seems, we should pursue them to better understand life. The pure joy of being alive emerges when we are fully present and life is in balance.

Being a good human being means different things to different people. People try their best to follow the cultural norms of good human behaviour. And yet, there are some challenging circumstances in every human being’s lifespan, when his values and morals are tested.

Every individual should maintain good physical hygiene, and mental and emotional health, as this is the basis of all good human behaviour.

A good person teaches other people with respect, care and compassion.

We as human beings are creative and with our will and hard work, we can achieve anything in our life. The happiest man on this planet is one who serves humanity. Real happiness is the inner satisfaction you can get from society, no matter how rich you are, you can not buy inner happiness.

A human being also has to become an adult physically. We need only survive by appearing our hunger and thirst and avoiding fatal accidents and diseases unlike, physical maturity, emotional growth is in our hands.

The universal end most commonly sought after are security and pleasure – artha and karma. The remaining two purwharthas- dharma and moksha- can be accomplished by a human being. Artha may be in the form of cash or liquid assets, a real home, a good name , influence or power of any kind.

Seeking pleasure is another purushartha called Karma. It also takes many forms. For example, sensory pleasures may be anything from seafood or ice cream onwards. Anything that satisfies our senses, that, please our minds, that touches our hearts and evokes a certain application, is known as Karma.

There is another form of pleasure in watching the stars, enjoying the sunrise and sunset or drawing and painting scenery.

Now, there is a third Purushartha, dharma. It is pleasure born of harmony, deprived of friendship, sharing, helping another person and so on. If you enjoy it, what you do, life is simple and joyed. Not hurting someone or doing the right thing at the right time, for instance, giving joy – if not immediately but later. As we grow in our understanding , our dharma also grows.

The more we mature, we are the more dharma we are. Without violating dharma, doing what is to be done, pursuing artha, and karma, security and pleasure.

So people adapt themselves to circumstances, such as water moulds itself to the teapot.

Most of the time, we are not living life, just thinking about life.

We, people, make mistakes in life but learn to handle the obstacles in life by

1) be honest and direct

2) be helpful

3) listen to others

4) act locally

5) always be polite

6) be respectful

7) let go of anger

Thus this way, I think we all be healthy and joyful.

Anxiety and Depression: Nowadays

Each year more than 45 million people in the world suffer from an anxiety disorder and over 28 million people suffer from some type of depressive illness in their life. Having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time.

It is the fear of failure but no urge to be productive. More than 45 -50 Lakhs people in the world suffer from an anxiety disorder and over 20-38 Lakhs people are suffering from some type of depressive illness. Fear, anxiety and stress are a normal part of life and even adaptive in many conditions. Usually, normal anxiety keeps us alert.

Anxiety is universal as sadness. people are scared and fear of this cat and rat race life. They are not coming out and living stress-free Life. Some are losing a job, some are living in poverty and some are not adjusted to life.

Anxiety is a psychological experience, separated from the syndrome with prominent physical symptoms. It is wanting friends, and family but hating socialising. It is wanting to be alone but not wanting to be lonely. It is feeling everything once and then feeling paralysingly numb.

Actually, anxiety and depression are one of the most common mental disorders. No one has escaped from anxiety and depression in their lives.

DSM4 – described five forms of anxiety disorders: –

1) panic

2) generalised anxiety disorder

3) obsessive-compulsive disorder

4) phobia

5) post-traumatic stress disorder( PTSD)

So, normally anxiety and stress are common factors in life also, which affect the health of people. Everyone gets nervous or anxious from time to time, but nowadays, due to a busy schedule in life, people are suffering more.

Anxiety comes in many different forms – such as phobia, panic attacks and social anxiety. Being anxious and depressed can make feel hopeless. Changing behaviour, physical activity, lifestyle and even one way of thinking — all are depression problems.

Spend time with good people who are good for your mental health.


1) Dizziness

2) confusion

3) out of body experience

4) early rising

5)Blurred vision

6) clinched stomach

7) hot/ cold flushes

8) headache

9) chest pain

10) shallow breathing

11) Tingling arms and legs

12) shaky etc

So, depression and anxiety affect people in their work-life, family life and social life. Depression and anxiety carry a higher risk of suicidal tendency.

More than 80% of people with clinical depression can be successfully treated with early recognition, intervention and support.

So, remember your strongest muscle and worst enemy are your minds.

Train it well

Depression is a mood disorder with feelings of sadness, loss or anger that interfere with a person’s daily life.

People in a depressing stage

So, I hope everyone will agree with me and live life stress-free.

Stress, health and Disease

Everyone has stress. It is a normal part of life. But when people constantly react to stressful situations without making adjustments, it is harmful to their health and mental.

In stress and anxiety, people begin to tremble, and their hands become cold and clammy, there is a sinking feeling in the stomach, an increased rate of respiration and dryness of the mouth.

Chronic stress can wear down the body’s immune system leading to a variety of mental and physical symptoms such as Dizziness, loss of interest headache, grinding teeth, body ache, clenched jaws and fists, fatigue, tiredness and exhaustion etc.

So, the relationship between stress and disease is an enormous area of discourse that fires the popular imagination. Although it is difficult to correlate stress and disease.

Prolonged anxiety and tension can produce physiological disorders involving specific body organs ranging from minor ailments like eczema, arthritis, palpitations, indigestion, diarrhoea, constipation and disturbed sleep.

But prolonged stress can be increased major disorders like hypertension, ischemic heart disease, diabetes or cancer, which are life-threatening by lowering our resistance.

The most common stress-related diseases are:

1) Cardiovascular disorder

a) Hypertension — it is directly related to stress on people. Many of our daily activities require intense alertness. This puts a lot of pressure, stress and anxiety on an individual. Uncontrolled blood pressure can strain the heart and contribute to the hardening of blood vessels. This in turn premature heart attack, neurological problems and other diseases of the blood vessels.

2) Chronic heart disease – in chronic heart disease, angina occurs, which is the tight gripping pain in the precordial region which may radiate to the left arm, neck or jaw. When the blood supply is inadequate for the heart, it happens because of narrowing arteries, so stress is a major contributor to the development of atherosclerosis, spasm of coronary arteries.

3) Palpitation- palpitation occurring frequently as a response to stress can damage the heart.

4) Headache( Migraine/ tension) – stress can lead to the contribution of muscles on the scalp, neck and forehead causing tension headache. Migraine is the throbbing pain and stress is said to be an important trigger for migraine.

4) Ulcer- in the condition of stress and anxiety, physical discomfort may become so magnified as to be incapacitating.

5) Chronic Fatigue – A constant feeling of fatigue or tiredness is the commonest symptom of stress. Fatigue can develop due to stress whether physical, mental or emotional.

6) Irritable Bowel Syndrome – abdominal pain, diarrhoea alternating with constipation, sense of incomplete evacuation, bloating occurs due to stress also.

So, stress can be a major factor in psychological problems like depression, phobia and anxiety. The stress may or may not be directly related to the cause of these disorders, but its presence for prolonged periods is certainly related to the worsening of the conditions.

In life, we all face disappointments and unpleasant situations and the common response to these is to feel depressed.

A depressed person loses initiative and interest in everything going around him/her. So, it is hard to feel that any diseases in which stress can not play an aggravating role or any part of the body that is not affected.

Remember a little bit of stress is required in life for proper functioning. But the prolonged high level of stress can ruin our life— both physical and mental.

It is my advice to people to live a longer life…… stress-free

How to quiet your mind?

Each year more than 40 million people in the world suffer from anxiety and stress and 20 million suffer from some type of depressive illness. Fear, anxiety and stress are a normal part of life, even adaptive in many conditions.

So , in the cat and rat race, we have to quiet our minds and keep calm.

There are a few steps for keeping the mind in peace and enjoying life.

1) Breath – we breathe all the time, but during relaxation time, we should pay attention to the rhythm. If we take a short quick breath, try to move toward slower, deeper ones. Lie down relax and breathe slowly and keep the mind free.

2) watch some interesting songs and movies– when people listen to their favourite songs and movies, they feel relaxed, calmer and less stressed. Heart rates and blood pressure dropped too.

3) Exercise – just 5- 15 minutes of exercise, like a brisk walk, yoga could start to calm the mind. It releases endorphin, and oxytocin – chemicals that make us feel good and can help improve our mind, focus and sound sleep.


So, high-intensity interval training can give a big doge of them in a short time.

4) Listen to Bhajans and melodies songs– it calms the activity in the brain. Songs are a good thing to try if you are stressed.

5) Help someone – it lights up part of our brain that makes us feel pleasure and connection. Doing something nice for someone lowers stress and a lesser feeling of loneliness. It may even boost our heart health and immune response.

6) Go outdoors – Being in and around nature often makes people think more clearly and feel more relaxed and refreshed. Spending time outside can also bring down our heart rate, blood pressure, stress hormone and even muscle tension.

7) Progressive muscle relaxation – use the connection of your body to soothe your mind. Pick a body part – foot, leg, mouth, eyes- and tense it for a few seconds. Then release and relax for 10 seconds or so. Again, switch to another part and keep going until you have done your whole body. This can also improve sleep and may even other symptoms such as body ache, headache etc.

8) Hang out with a pet– whether it is in your home or a neighbour’s pet, a friendly pooch can make you feel less anxious, tensed, confused and restless. When you play with them, it seems to lower levels of the stress hormone.

9) Yoga- Yoga can help us get a fit body and mind. A regular practice session lessens anxiety and takes the edge off our natural response plus, it is excessive that builds our strength and flexibility.

10) Get creative – keep busy with some activities like reading a book, painting, and gardening which can offer an escape for a busy mind. It can help us redirect our thoughts and tune out the chatter in our heads. The key is to enjoy the process and not worry so much about the result.

11) Take a break– when you find your mind racing full speed or spiralling down a rabbit hole, change your focus: stretch, daydream, walk around, get a snack or chat with a friend. Take at least a few minutes to recharge and reset.

12) Dig in the dirt- It is not just the great outdoors and the exercise at work here. The soil itself has microorganisms that might help our focus and lift our mood.

Now, this technique teaches us to control our reactions to stress. We could trek our heart rate, body temperature and breathe too. Overall, we will figure out how to calm our body’s response on our own.

Occupation and Cancer

These day, occupational cancer is an important problem in the industries. The cause of this cancer is found to be the deposition and rubbing of soot, coal dust and coal tar on their skin.

Occupational radiation exposure has long been a well-known cause of cancer in humans. Early radiologists, unaware of the danger, often exposed their hands to test the effectiveness of their machines and thereby incurred skin cancers. They also suffered from a large excess of leukaemia as compared with other physicians. Approximately 20℅ of the watch dial painters, who pointed their fine brushes with their lips and thus absorbed a considerable amount of radium later developed bone cancer and antral carcinomas.

A major form of occupational radiation exposure is in the mining of ores containing radioactive elements. As high as ten-fold increased frequency of lung cancers has been observed among the miners working in such mines.

Etiology…………Sites of malignancy

1) Arsenic- Lung, skin, liver

2) Asbestos- Mesothelium, lung

3) Benzene- leukaemia

4) Benzidine- Bladder

5) Chromium compounds- Lung

6) Radiation( mining, dial painting) – Numerous locations

7) Mustard gas- Lung

8) Polycystic hydrocarbons( coal products) vinyl chloride – Skin, Lung, Angiosarcoma of liver

The sites of the body most commonly affected are skin, lungs, bladder and blood-forming organs.

These are: —

1) Skin cancer – statistics show that skin cancer forms a major percentage of occupational cancers. Skin cancers are an occupational hazard among gas workers, coke oven workers, tar distilleries , oil refineries, dyestuff makers, road makers etc.

2) Lung Cancer – Lung Cancer is a hazard in the gas industry, nickel and chromium workers, arsenic roasting plants and in the mining of radioactive substances. A combination of factors for example smoking and asbestos exposure greatly increase the risk of lung cancer.

3) Bladder cancer– Bladder cancer was first noted in men in the aniline dye industry in 1895. It is now known that bladder cancer is caused by aromatic amines, which are metabolized in the body and excreted in the urine. The industries associated with bladder cancer are dyestuff and the dyeing industry, the rubber industry etc.


4) Leukaemia – Exposure to benzol, X- rays, and radioactive substances gives rise to Leukaemia. Benzol is a dangerous chemical and is used as a solvent in many industries.

The characteristics of occupational cancer are

1) They appear after prolonged exposure

2) The period between exposure and development of cancer may be as long as 10-25 years.

3) The disease may develop even after cessation of exposure

4) The average age incidence is earlier than that for cancer in general

5) The localization of tumours is remarkably constant in any one occupation.

How to control occupational cancer?

1) personal hygiene is very important in prevention. Simple measures like bathing daily dramatically reduced the incidence of scrotal cancer in chimney sweeps.

2) Elimination and control of industrial carcinogens by finding a safer substitute.

3) Regular medical examination of workers and inspection of factories so that they maintain safety standards.

Check up

4) Health education of workers and management

5) Use of safety devices like gloves, masks etc must be made compulsory.

I hope, now all of you who are working in factories will take care of your health.

Money: why it is a double-edged sword these days?

As all of us know that the country was fighting a war against the Pandemic Covid- 19 by being on lockdown and now there is a war between Ukraine and Russia, which has increased the price of many essential items used in daily life.

Everyone’s finances have been affected by it, but mostly the daily wages of workers, lower middle class, poor men, and small traders are affected more because these people don’t have too much money in saving, to begin with, and the loss of income, loss of jobs matters worse.

Vendors’ either vegetables or fruit sales are down. These people are anyway taking a risk in their life to bring foodstuffs to doorsteps even in this critical situation. The lockdown and war have increased the price of all items. Many people are struggling financially either because of wage cuts or the loss of jobs.

The world breaks everyone, but some are strong in broken places and crisis conditions.

So, everyone knows how to earn money but few people know how to spend and save. Money is a great booster for a family and person. Money is a source of strength, but it uses that make it good or bad for a human being. People earn money through hard work, but many people don’t know how to spend it wisely.

If anyone spends money on constructive purposes is good, but if spend stupidly, then it is bad. Many people are not so rich that they live comfortably and lavishly, they are struggling to survive in life and support the family.

If people spend money for the betterment of society, it will enhance their goodwill and earn respect. But if people lavishly spend money on their near and dear ones, spend money on living luxury life. Then, there is a huge gap that happens between poor men and rich men.

It is good to have money, but if money makes you arrogant, then it is worse than poison. If money makes modest and fruitful for society, then it is good for utilising the money in a better way. Money, of course, is a necessity, but it is the acquisition that should not be our sole purpose in life.

If we compare money with learning, we can easily understand the differences between the two. Money is a risky form of capital, for we can lose it through an expected or unexpected asset. Externally, wealth seems to be a good thing, but internally, it is otherwise.

Remember, every wealthy people live under great stress.

So, money is an essential commodity which every individual requires to run their lives.

Philosophically, money can not buy everything, but practically money is the basic thing which is used for almost everything. Money has its importance which should not be ignored, money is a necessity, ask poor people how they spend their lives and feed their families. For basic things such as education, medicine, healthcare, and family it is important can not ignore them.

It is good to make money, but it is bad to let money become the master of our life.

Now, it is no time to think about what we don’t have. Think of what we can do with what there is.
