Think Healthy, Live Healthy: G. K. Chesterton’s 'On Running After One’s Hat ' Abstract In our day to day life we come across many situations good or bad. Every unfavourable situation whether it’s big or trivial, irritates most of us most of the time. This research paper throws light on our attitude towards petty affairs in our daily routine.

Instead of doing so if we take these least important things lightly, we can get rid of this irritation and distress.
