Our Dear Kway Readers,
Welcome to the month of May!
Wasn’t this the most awaited month of the year when we were young?
Yes, I am sure most of us have our happiest memories of summer vacation.
May, though a very hot and sweaty month, had the highest level of energy in us, we were enthusiastic to go out and play under the scorching heat, come back tired and sleep after a late chatting with family and friends, getting up late and having untimely meals with our parents calling out our names to finish daily chores. All these were such memories of summer vacations.
In fact, just being home watching TV was considered a big boon during summer vacation.
This month had a given relaxation for everyone as a vacation month, to do a few twists and turns in our lifestyle, which were meant to be done! And we did not worry about getting scolded.
Unfortunately, the pandemic has changed the whole scenario. Staying at home for two years has made the lifestyle of many miserable. What was happening during vacation became a routine pattern, leaving behind a huge impact, especially on school children and people working from home.
They seem to have lost their routines and excitement for the vacation month.
Children are constantly under peer pressure which has prevented them from enjoying their vacations with satisfaction. Earlier, there was a contentment and satisfaction even after a short vacation in visiting grandparents’ house but now, we see that either children do not want to socialize and are stuck to gadgets or the expectation from a vacation is huge.
Most disheartening is that the child isn't happy, even when given many choices.
Today, being content or getting pleased, and satisfied with the given opportunity is lacking to such an extent that it causes depression. We really need to teach and learn how to be happy and grateful.
This month is also the month recorded for peak summer temperatures. Keep yourselves cool and well-hydrated. This month, along with vacation, let's also spread awareness about vaccination for elders, and read some articles on how to keep the summer at bay.
Read and enjoy. Have a great month ahead.
