Long Term Happiness Vs Short Term Happiness


For the whole life, we go on looking for happiness because happiness is one of the main purposes of our life. To attain happiness, we do so many things. But still most of the time we found our self-unhappy in the end of our life. Why? The most obvious reason is that we do not understand happiness. Happiness is like short term happiness and long term happiness. Long term happiness is the real happiness because it stays with us forever. We have to plan in advance, which type of happiness we want a short term or long term. There are many enjoyments in life, which gives us short term happiness. These are like laziness, sleeping, watching TV, listening music, playing or dreaming. I am not saying that we should not do all these things. However, do them only when they are required or you have free time.

However, if we do them in excess, then they may give us some happiness momentarily; but takes the long term happiness away from us. Some of us ruin their whole life for these small pleasures. For achieving the real happiness in life, we should be able to understand which thing gives us happiness and what are our main life purposes which need to be fulfilled. Most of us do not understand all these things that we have to go through some initial pains for achieving the long-term goals. But after achieving these goals, most of our worries go away and we found ourselves happy.

There is a clear example of a student, who study for the whole year and comes first in class. On the other hand, his friend watched movies, played and wasted time, therefore failed. The student who comes first in the class took the extra pain and sacrificed momentarily happiness, but achieved a bigger happiness in term of his success. Now, everybody likes him and quote his examples. Whereas his friend, who has gone for short term happiness is unhappy after the results. In this way, his small term enjoyments turned into long term unhappiness.

If we do not plan from the day one and for long-term goals, then we will be defiantly going to land in unhappiness. We require an understanding of things which gives us happiness; even it may be associated with some pain in the present. Our life’s aim should we to attain mastery in the field, which we like and get the exceptional results in that. You may be saying that it is not possible for everybody, but I will not agree, it possible for everybody with some proper planning and taking some pain. We should have the guts to attain our true happiness through our hard efforts. This is the real purpose of our life. If we do not do this, we will always remain unhappy.

Importance of clean environment

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of clean environment.

Sadly, we see very less being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places at several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue.

It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are the most successful and best couples of Bollywood.

Why people migrate from Villages to Big cities? Cost of living in Big Cities and Side effects

Around the world, big cities have become a great reality and today, our major pollution lives in these big cities. Moreover, the expansion of these cities is still on with migration of more people from villages to big cities.
The major reason for the migration of people from villages and small towns to big cities is the availability of employment.
Employment is one of the major needs of every individual because through it he can earn money to live a comfortable life.
Big cities offer an abundance of employment opportunities for different classes of society. From a highly educated person to a laborer, everyone can find a good job in a big city because of good demand of such services. Therefore, many people who migrate to such big cities settle permanently in these cities and increase the size and population of such cities.

Does the effect of coronavirus is overrated?

Today, we see the whole of the world gripped in the fear of coronavirus that some of the countries have even crippled. There is no doubt that coronavirus is a new and deadly virus and; we don’t have any cure available to fight this virus. However, still, the effects of this virus are overrated and we fear too much from it. People around the world fear so much from coronavirus that they think that its end is near. In the recent post, does the whole world die because of the coronavirus outbreak? I have tried to highlight this issue.
It is clear that it is a deadly virus and we need to take all precautions to fight it; however, fearing too much from it is not a good idea. The death rate from this virus is already much-much less than many other diseases present in our world and this virus is more dangerous for the people who are already at the risk. The steep fall in stock markets across the world also show this nature of the world that we are losing all hopes.
All this is happening becaus…
