The Art Of Living - Nishan Karki

 So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
 So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
                                                - William Shakespeare 

Many people want to be immortal, many want to live a long life and others do not wish to live at all. Being immortal is impossible, living a short life does not sound good or pleasing. The best way is to live a long life and make a change. Living a long life is what people crave the most. 

We must work for a balanced life to live longer. Wishing for a long life is not the way, we need to work towards it. To live longer we have to work towards our health, environment, style of living, mindset (way of thinking), etc.

● Health 

The first and foremost thing needed to secure a long life is health. To be healthy, we need to eat good food, exercise, listen to good music, think positively, maintain a healthy circle of friends, visit the hospital at regular intervals, etc. We should not excessively indulge in any alcoholic beverages, tobacco, cigarettes, etc. These things affect our health and decrease our lifespan. Health is definitely wealth and a healthy mind lives in a healthy body. 

● Environment

Our environment greatly affects our lifespan. People who are exposed to healthy, clean and peaceful environments tend to live longer and vice-versa. A healthy and clean environment, free from all kinds of pollution, diseases, etc., increases and maintains our life expectancy rate. 

● Style of Living 

People have different styles of living. Rich people live a luxurious life, middle-class people live a normal life and poor people face difficulties in living a life. People who have too much as well as people who have too little live comparatively short lives. People with adequate means of livelihood live longer. "Superfluity comes sooner by white hairs, but competency lives longer.”

● Mindset

People have different ways of thinking and mindset. There are many people who want to live a long life and some want to end life. If people have the mindset that they want to secure a long life, they will work hard to achieve their goals. People who want to end life will give up. 

Living a long life is not the correct way. The correct way is to live a long and happy life, make a change and do good things for the people and the world before our life ends. If we do this, people will always remember us even after our death; our lives will also be worth living.
