Though the human brain grows and develops gradually when it put in different situations. It ultimately plays a crucial role in paving up a road map for a person in life ahead. Hostels, therefore considered sacred places since the beginning for anyone to learn about different cultures, traditions, and societal norms. In the old days, crown princes were sent away to experts to help them learn different strategies. They were sent alone to run a country and live a balanced life. We can say that problems of hostel life are old centuries ago. In this article, you will get to know why we are saying this.
Later on, as education became a fundamental human right, encouraged for the masses too to leave their birthplace and explore the world. Hence the concept of hostels far away from families, relatives, and tribes came into existence, and that’s how this world became a global village. But in this game of making world progress and exploring it by going away from home for studies, there are problems of hostel life.
However, like anything else, this hostel or a boarding house had its own challenges. Though a lot of problems are being rectified over time, few common issues need to be addressed. People who run the hostel are not the only ones to address these issues. It is family responsibility too to help their kids fight with fundamental life issues. In a broader picture, one must have the capability and strength to handle any unforeseen situation. If a person is capable and optimistic enough to know the root cause of any problem arising, he/she can create a solution.
Irrespective of this awareness, students in hostel life go through these common issues as follows:
Financial management is, anyways, a difficult topic to talk about. In hostel life, as people are living a free life. Where most parents aren’t there to oversee that the money assigned for any activity invested appropriately or not, therefore, students have financial crises all the time. Such a situation, avoided if proper cash flow made and spent is done accordingly.
Along with financial problems, kids are careless and insensitive about their eating and sleep habits. Hence they sometimes can face serious health issues too. Common health problems can be ulcers that occur due to unhealthy and unhygienic healthy choices. Therefore, firstly a pattern of the weekly menu should be followed. Secondly healthy ingredients with proper sleep and exercise should be made a part of life.
Though living in a hostel makes students emotionally stable but initially, when someone is facing adjustment issues, distress happens. This distress, if not handled appropriately, can lead to depression and other weaknesses. Such suffering can be avoided by focusing on what’s important and leave what will never add any value in life. In a nutshell, to avoid depression, we have to have those factors only in life which stimulates our happy hormones and avoid any distress causing factors. Though it isn’t as easy as it sounds but still doable.
People facing all of the financial, health, and other distress causing issues often become prey to drug addiction and other sedatives. In such a situation, one must have an excellent company to motivate. This motivation helps in avoiding these things and who can help you bring back to a healthy life. Choose your friends and enemies wisely. Not every friendship worth fighting for; neither does every enmity.
No matter if your family is harsh, rude, and cruel, always share your problems with your family. Or at least share those issues which you cannot solve. Because the family will always be there to help you when no one will. The cruelty of the world is far more harsh and unbearable than families.
