A session on Health and Wellness, by Symbiosis Centre for Health Care (SCHC) was organised on 24th November, 2017. A health-aware and wellness-oriented lifestyle is a must in a competitive and stressful world. SCIT is committed to focus on the importance of emotional and physical fitness and inspire the students towards a healthy lifestyle. The reach and spread of the health initiatives by SCHC in Symbiosis campuses have always been astounding.
The session particularly talked about striking the right balance between social, emotional & mental and physical health. The main objective of the session was to direct the students towards a healthy and energetic life. The factors affecting one’s health were identified as the quality of life, the environment around and the lifestyle of the person. Though the external forces act on the other factors, lifestyle is a factor that is fully dependent on the choices made by an individual. It thus translates wellness-focused lifestyle to be a quintessential part of one’s life. The speaker also threw light on topics like obesity and Body Mass Index (BMI). The intention was to make the audience capable of evaluating their own health and wellness level.
Such initiatives, with a focus on the well-being of the students are imperative in an educational institute. SCIT, as always, has made it a point to hold such gatherings at regular intervals to ensure that the students are safe and sound, inside and outside the campus.
