“The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.” — Steve Jobs
Our life is a roller coaster ride. There are ups and there are down and we need to go through each of them as it comes. Everyday is a new day and brings new challenge to live. The way we lives defines our lifestyle. People have different lifestyle to choose from and now a days we have so many lifestyle in existence. Or may be I was not exposed to the different section of the society before. Now as I grown up, I am myself exposing to understand the different lifestyle that people have to choose. Infact now there are number of them in existence and each of them have their own pros and cons.
Last night I was evaluating everything happened in my life . And in all those evaluation I ended up, how I came to know about differrnt lifestyle as I keep seeing the new world everydsy. I am not sure, how many of you agree, but now we have a differrnt section in our society and each of them stands themselves better than others. Here are a little roundabout of how things unfolded to me in recent years.
Veg & Non Veg
When I was a child, my innocence led me to define the society in two categories. Vegetarian - the people who eats onlybgreen plant and avoid any flesh in their diet. Non-Vegetarian : People who can eat the flesh of animals, eggs, fish. They are that section that can rely on both green plant diet as well as flesh diet. Having flesh in their diet separate them from others.
Literate & Illeterate
Slowly, I was exposed to this section. Where person who can read and write can be put in Literate category while the one, who does not know to "read and write" are considered to be illeterate. (I am not including educated). This section of people knows to speak but rely to other for reading or writing purposes.
Rich & Poor
The above category again drilled down the society into Rich and Poor. The richer are the one who can afford education and makes money and can afford car, house, cloth etc whereas the Poor unable to get any education and unable to enjoy the different luxuries of life. They are good at manual effort and still manage to earn the livlihood. There are chances of a turnaround too. Means that a Poor can be richer and vice versa.
The Modern Lifestyle
As the time goes by, and I keep studying the different lifestyle in existence. I was introduced to another few section in the society. These section are not a new born. They bifurcated themselves from the above categories. I may say that the above categories were the basic life style that was in existence for so many decades. No look at some of the modern way of living which came into existence from their basic lifestyle.
Living life with basic mere needs. This is one of the lifestyle which are getting bit of popularity nowadays. The approach is very simple. They aim is about owning only what adds value and meaning to thsir life. And letting all other things that brings distraction. This category avoid many things and try to make arrangement from the basic things to live happily. This is not an easy as it sounds as you may to sacrifice a lot of luxuries in life.
This section really surprises me. When I came to know about it, I was very surprised to find that people are moving away from animal dependency. This one is completelly different from.the vegetarian section. But it comes out from them.
In earlier times, people used to keep livestock at home to get many useful products like milk, meat etc.
But now the vegan lifestyle standing themselves completelly out of the animal world. They are relying on products that are not derived from animal. A vegan Vegans do not eat foods that come from animals, including dairy products and eggs.
This one I am yet to learn about, but I heard of it a lot. I read somewhere a lifestyle that nourishes your mind, body, and soul. So far what I understood is that it aims at clean living, clean eating, doing exercise, meditation and other stuff that make a heslthy life. By following this lifestyle, people likely to develop chronic diseases such as heart disease or diabetes etc.
Make your own choice. It is always advisable to live as you wanted to live. Rather than being influenced by others. I was approached by a guy to change my lifestyle and to prefer what they were following. People are in a habit of copying others lifestyle and ended up creating a mess in their own life and family. It is good to adapt what make you happy. There are so many option to choose from. But *choose only those that add meaning to your life and give you happiness. and When you are ready to adapt in new way of living.
