Simplicity and Trust
Simplicity is living a life that is less hectic and shallow. When you understand Simplicity, you begin to have an appreciation for things you may not have noticed in the past. The little things in life become significant because they create some of the biggest joys.
By living a simple life and focusing on the things that matter, you're almost guaranteed to be happier. Without the distractions, noise, and stress brought upon us by cluttered surroundings, too much technology, processed foods, and endless noise, it's easier to feel happy.
Exercise on Simplicity –
I showed the students a picture of a garden and asked them to write a short paragraph with five senses on it.
Impact on students-
Students imagine themselves in a garden. They also showed their creativity by making drawings along with the paragraph.
Teacher's Role- Facilitator
Trust: - assured reliance on the character
"To trust means to rely on another person because you feel safe with them and have confidence that they will not hurt or violate you".
Exercise on Trust –
In the English period, I taught Commands with blindfolds. One of the students came in front of the class to give commands to the blindfolded students to reach the Library from Grade IV. Although the Library was not so far, the students had trust in each other, so they got to the destination only because of trust in their classmates.
Teacher's Role- facilitator and guide.
Impact- Each student learnt Team spirit, unity, communication skills and cooperation.
