A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of “Life Skills”.
Google defines the term ‘life skills’ to be “a skill that is necessary or desirable for full participation in everyday life.”
Life skills involve a wide range of skills that help an individual live life well. Of course, it pertains to more than basic survival skills. It involves other important skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving skills, analytical thinking, the ability to manage emotional, financial, and health- especially mental health- aspects of life efficiently, and the ability to have good interpersonal and communication skills. These skills are crucial, especially in adults. They help one to be both independent and self-sufficient.
In recognition of the importance of life skills, it has now been made into a subject that is taught in both schools and colleges mandatorily in order to make students aware of them right from a young age.
