Life is short, youth is finite, and opportunities endless. Have you found the intersection of your passion and the potential for world-shaping positive impact? If you don’t have a great idea of your own, there are plenty of great teams that need you – unknown start ups and established teams in giant companies alike. Nowadays, teenagers have changed in comparison with the teens in the past, taking into account eating habits, an active way of life, spending free time and clothes. They are a “technology” generation. For teens in today’s world mobile phones, internet, music, movies, television and video games are very important. Most teenagers prefer watching TV and playing computer games to reading books. They don’t like reading because watching TV is easier and they don’t have to use their own imagination.
Youth comprises of maximum population in India. But the lifestyle of today’s youth is confined only to gizmo gadgets, discos and pubs. They don’t have any interest in national politics and don’t even know what’s happening around the world.The only thing which they enjoy doing is night outs with their friends, lounging in the pubs, tapping your feet to the rocking music in discs, showing off 8 GB i-pods, N-Series mobiles, wearing branded clothes and shoes from woods etc.They feel if they do not have all these ’cool stuffs’, then it will affect their image in college campus or their common hang-outs. Teenagers prefer to spend free time in front of a computer rather than to walk, play football or go to a swimming pool. Moreover, games transfer them into the world which doesn’t exist. It is very exciting for the youth. They meet with friends in such places as McDonalds. Teens eat there unhealthy food. They eat too much fast food.
Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life. Every teenager needs a balanced diet, appropriate personal hygiene and physical activities in the fresh air, for example, playing a ball, going running, swimming, driving on the bicycle, playing in tennis or walking. Today’s generation does not even realize where they are heading to. Their thought is limited and views confined and outlook, they don’t have any. Young people choose less healthy kinds of entertainment than sport, putting away bicycles in the corner. They eat too much fast, unhealthy food, which is very fatty and drink too many sugary drinks. This leads to obesity. However, nowadays young people, especially girls, allow themselves to grow fat, or torture themselves with diets, which leads to various diseases with physical basis like anorexia and bulimia.
All in all, it can be stated that the lifestyle of teenagers depends on many factors. It is connected with the constant development which is taking place and as a result is different from the lifestyle of young people in the past. Every young man should lead a healthy lifestyle independently of age or interests. LIVE life with intention. WALK to the edge. LISTEN hard. PRACTICEwith abandon, LAUGH, CHOOSE with no regret. APPRECIATE your friends. CONTINUE to what you love. LIVE as if this is all there is. YOUTH SHOULD BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN THEY TAKE EACH STEP IN THEIR LIFE.
