Go back to childhood if not for today


Childhood is a time when we spend the most beautiful moments of life without any plan. Even if you don’t understand it then, you can understand it very well in adolescence-youth-old age. Childhood is a time of tragedy. Childhood is a time of spending beautiful moments with sports, friends.

Childhood is a time to make mistakes, where people learn by making mistakes. Childhood is like a world painted in seven colors of the rainbow. Where there is no preoccupation, worry, understanding of good and bad, thinking about the future, hard work like protecting the minds of people around. This time is spent only in fun, sports, eating, sleeping, having fun with friends at school and doing whatever you want.

But the childhood of 21st century children is very different. They spend time on various technologies and gadgets between four concrete walls. They don’t know the joy of gollachhoot, dariyabadha, kanamachi, hide and seek, ice-water games in the village field or backyard. They don’t know the joy of swimming in a pond. The feeling of sitting together with uncles and aunts, uncles and cousins ​​in the evenings and listening to ghost stories.

A study was conducted in 2009 to analyze how being psychologically young, or reminiscing about childhood or doing favorite childhood activities, affects a person and how much it can increase quality of life. This study was done on 1 lakh women. Research results show that it reduces depression in women and reduces the chance of dying from heart disease by 30 percent.

This topic was further studied in 2014 and a paper published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine concluded that maintaining a positive attitude reduces anxiety and depression.
