Many of us are busy with our routine lifestyle and doing regular things in life. Majorly we are focusing our time on earning money.

Few of us are lucky those are doing work 8-9 hours max a day and they are sparing time for their hobbies which help him to improve their personality and confidence level. This also reduces our stress level drastically.
We always have a myth in mind that as much time we will spend in the profession more we get increment & promotions. Spending extra time in your workplace is not going to add much to your life. It is always better to work within working hours and rest of the time we can invest to add quality in our life & lifestyle too. Many of us are doing work smartly and they restricted their time for the profession and rest they are spending time with their hobbies, families and friends which always keep cool our mind and give freshness in life. As much we bring quality to life, it will enhance our personality levels.

We all love travelling to the places as this gives exposer to the world and experience enhance your knowledge & gain travelling confidence. We generally travel by public transport, by motorbike or by Car. If we have our own car then the travelling experience will have more fun.
We generally travel the places and try to cover all popular tourist point in a very shorter time and our travelling is becoming more tedious rather than fun. Travel has to have fun relaxing and to gain a good knowledge of the place. We have to change the travelling concept and motive of travelling so it will add value to our lifestyle. For example, I have to travel a place which is around 200-300 km away from home. First, we need to read right-up about the place so at least we have some information about the place and then plan travel ternary accordingly. We need to list down the accessories to be carried in car like tent, camera, Car folding chair, Travel backpack, small water dispenser, binocular, small torch, travel utensil kit..etc. We need to plan properly what activity will do like taste the local food, buy some locally made stuff if any, see the local cultural program etc. which actually add more fun in travelling and make it more enjoyable. If staying at night at destination need to plan then carry your game kits and play with family & kids. It will add more fun to life.

“Wisdom…. comes not from age, but from education and learning.” ― Anton Chekhov
Books are an ocean of knowledge. As much you read, you gain more knowledge & wisdom. Knowledge is always empowering our capacity to learn. It is not so easy to read a book as it requires interest too. Many of us are not habitual to read books or articles. Even don’t know what to read, which book to read. We need to understand first our interest in topics and then we should start getting into the reading habits. If the topic you are reading is of you interest you always love to read. More importantly by reading, are you gaining any knowledge which helps you to improve your personality, skill or mindset.
We generally look for entertainment rather than knowledge. But if you compare entertainment to knowledge, our mind always prompting us towards entertainment, it can be watching movies, watching u tube videos etc. By which we may not get any knowledge and end of the day it won’t add any value in your life. But if you read books articles, your knowledge and your speaking power on the subjects will improve which helps in confidence-building and you will be more interactive with the people. Your convincing power may get improved which helps you uplift in your professional carrier and personal life. This will definitely help you to lead a quality life.

Also, everyone has own set of thought on subject but many of us are expressive and many are having good knowledge but not able to express by mouth. In both cases, putting their thought on paper will enhance their ability to express every aspect of the subject and while writing you can cover many things which you forgot while expressing with someone by mouth.
