Simple Living and High Thinking
Modern Times has brought a change in the lifestyle of the people. They have changed their way of living. Emergence of technology and new inventions has made their life easier and materialistic. This has confined them in the four walls of their office or home.
They have lost their simple joys somewhere like spending time with families, friends, relatives etc. They do not go and spend their time in the natural environment or play outside or read books. This is destroying their ability to think high. The new lifestyle has led to various diseases like obesity, diabetes, cancer etc.
Due to this people are overburdened, stressed, full of anxiety and negative thoughts. To maintain a lavish lifestyle one spends more than he earns. To meet his lavish lifestyle he has to take loan or make compromises. One who lives a simple lifestyle doesn’t have to make compromises or take loan or be stressed about monetary joys. If you live in a simple way you will get time to think about the other aspects which are important for you. You will not be stressed instead you will be peaceful at heart. High thinking means to think positively and for the betterment of oneself and humanity. 
If you are not stressed or worried, then it will have a positive effect on one’s life so you should always live in simple way. If you eat healthy food, exercise properly; think positively, stay happy then it will lead to happy & healthy life. I would like to end by quoting, ‘A person should never be judged by his clothes; for simplicity lies in simple living & high thinking.’

WORLD HEALTH DAY 
April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization.
Over the past 50 years this has brought to light important health issues such as mental health, maternal and child care, and climate change. The celebration is marked by activities which extend beyond the day itself and serves as an opportunity to focus worldwide attention on these important aspects of global health.
Theme 2021: Building a fairer, healthier world for everyone
In recent years, countries in the Western Pacific have experienced rapid economic growth, migration and urbanization. This created opportunities for better lives for many, but left others behind. The COVID-19 pandemic has undercut recent health gains, pushed more people into poverty and food insecurity, and amplified gender, social and health inequities

Honesty 
Being honest is essential in life due to the fact it solves many troubles and leads to peace and success. Honesty is the wealth that offers trustworthy people a lot of trust and appreciates in life. Honesty is the best policy as the reason is the foundation of a well-functioning relationship. Further, it nourishes many lives in several ways. Here, trust is the basis of any relationship that is received honestly.
People usually find it difficult, to be honest, because it is quite challenging to maintain honesty. Honesty means being truthful to a person in all aspects of life. It includes not lying to anyone, not hurting anyone through bad habits, activities, or behavior. An honest person never gets involved in morally wrong activities. Honesty does not break any rules and regulations, be discipline, behave well, speak the truth, be punctual, and honestly help others.
Honesty helps a person to get around, lots of happiness, and blessings from the supreme power, and faith in many things. Being honest is very beneficial in real life. It is not something that one can buy or sell. This is a good habit that one can attain through practice.
2017 July, my dad felt worth sharing the importance of honesty. I was an average student in grade 8th, lazy and irresponsible. My father's words were like a kind of miracle which changed my life. He said "Khush, we should also need to focus on our duty and uphold our responsibilities and should always need to be honest towards our work." Further he added "Life should be great not long and being honest towards our work is one of the most important things which have been in the list of values required being successful. You must acquire this quality. Laxman was honest with Lord Rama while Vibhishana wasn't. That’s why Lord Rama possesses the ability to defeat Ravana, more powerful and wealthier than Lord Rama. So we conclude that honesty must be part of your ethics."
The spark lighted up myself. I starting working hard, studied well and was able to secure third position in academics.

Tolerance
What is Tolerance? Tolerance means a quality which enables one to tolerate the presence of others. It can make a way with all kinds of discords and disputes. Tolerance is respecting the opinion of others which is different from his own opinion.
How we can show tolerance towards someone:
1. Try to understand other’s point of view.
2. Listen carefully to others when they are talking to us.
3. Don't disrespect others.
4. Try to keep self control on one’s mind.
Tolerance is the most important virtue. People don't seem to be tolerant towards others behavior, they react without thinking. We should show some respect for everyone.
This behaviour not only creates a perfect person but also motivates others to be tolerant.
Nikhil Vaishnav/ XII Science
Tolerance 
Tolerance is a noble virtue. It is something which should be in everyone and everywhere. Meanwhile intolerance is quite opposite to it. Tolerance in one can increase his nobility. Tolerance does not mean to come up against any principle. A man with tolerance is a man with wisdom. A tolerant person does not tolerate political and financial dishonesty. Humans being social animal need to adopt the virtue of tolerance. It will help us to live a better and conscious full life. Whereas intolerance is quite opposite to it as it makes a person out of knowledge. It's a well-known fact that it's a universal law that intolerance is the first sign of inadequate education. One should respect other’s point of view and one should also try to tolerate small things. Mahatma Gandhi quoted, ‘Anger and intolerance are the enemy of correct understanding.’

Happiness
Happiness is the key to success. Without happiness life is not just a life. I think that, try to make at least one person happy every day, and then in ten years you may have made three thousand, six hundred and fifty persons happy. We buy beautiful things; we go to restaurants and love to travel these things also make us happy. 
I would like to share an incident which I experienced. On a beautiful early winter morning I and my friends went to the playground to play cricket. Same as every day we made two teams of seven-seven players each. Then tossed a coin for choosing batting or bowling, my team won the toss and chose to bat first. I was the opener of my team because I like to bat first. By mistake when the bowler threw the ball and I hit it,
it directly went and hit the knee of my friend. He started crying, I tried so much to stop him but he didn't. At last he stopped crying. 
After he stopped crying, I brought him to my home and applied ointment & bandaged him where the ball had hit him. After that I dropped him at his house. So, he was thankful and very happy on seeing my service for him.
We can make our life happier. It is a matter of choice. We might say it is impossible, since you have so many problems.
The source of happiness is we own. Happiness starts from us.
 Happiness is a good feeling of satisfaction.  For example:
Eating good, delicious food.
Feeling the warm rays of the sun on a winter day.
Watching a good movie.
Having fun at a party.
Lying in bed after a long tiring day.
Playing with friends.
By helping our mothers and sisters at home making them feel good, etc.
These very-very small things make our life happy, joyful, exciting, enjoyable, etc.
