What are Life Skills? They're those handy abilities that help you deal with everyday stuff, connect with others, and reach your goals and as we progress towards the future which is constantly changing, having the right set of skills becomes extremely important. Skills not only make an individual more employable but also ensure a smooth day-to-day routine.
