Will provide counselling on stress management and how to balance academics and lifestyle: Principal Fr Dominic Savio
The pandemic has definitely taught us the importance of good health and well-being. St. Xavier’s College has set up a Wellness Centre on its Park Street campus in the belief that “besides retaining a healthy diet, physical activity is necessary for maintaining a sound health”. The facility is meant for the students and staff of St. Xavier’s College who will be able to use it for free.
The 1,200sq ft fully air-conditioned Wellness Centre is funded by Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA), a holistic scheme of development for higher education in India by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.
The centre has facilities for cardio, power and weight training, aerobics and yoga.
Apart from fitness, the centre will also offer meditation and discussion programmes on health and mind-related issues with personalities from the fields of medicine, sports, spirituality and motivation.
“We plan to keep a health record of our staff and students. The centre will also provide counselling to students regarding stress management and how to maintain a good balance between academics and lifestyle. It will be of immense help for our sports department for coping with rigorous training sessions and maintaining a proper fitness regime. The main aim of this centre is not only to create a strong and healthy body but also a vigorous mind for a fresh outlook towards life,” said St. Xavier’s College principal Father Dominic Savio.
