Life skills are the building blocks or framework that allow students to apply the knowledge they acquire in school to real world problems and situations. Also referred to as “soft skills” they help children to acquire the ability to think abstractly and approach problems from multiple angles to find practical solutions, and the skill to communicate clearly and effectively. Watch this video to know more about ‘Life Skills’, the skills which we need to make the most out of our life.

Self-awareness helps us to have a better understanding of ourselves. We are able to experience ourselves as unique individuals. It empowers us to build up the areas of our strengths and work on the areas that need improvements. This is a small effort to help our students identify the same. Some engaging follow up activities can help the learners get a better understanding of the story.

Empathy is the ability to imagine what life is for another person, even in a situation that we may not be familiar with. It is like having an invisible link with someone, which allows us to understand what they feel and experience. Watch this video by me and Gunjan Tomar to learn why practicing empathy is important to not only improve our life but also the lives of those around us even if just a little.

Time management is the process of planning and exercising conscious control of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity. It is a much-required skill in today's time when the boundaries of time of work and leisure are blurring. Well managed time helps us to plan our work better and minimises the stress of completing the piled up work. Have a look at our Grasshopper and Ants story with a new look and perspective. CBSE schools are in the process of having mid-term assessments. Hope this resource is useful for the teachers to help students manage their time well and plan well.

A podcast about how mindful breathing helps develop mindfulness:

Mindful breathing can be considered as the practice of tuning in completely to the experience of the breath in our body. Mindfulness is not just about being present, but truly recognizing our experience and seeing it clearly. Keep breathing mindfully and take charge of your life. This life is ours and life is beautiful. Make most of it and be happy. This podcast is especially for educators who require these moments the most to pass on the same to their students.
