Special Jigyaasa session – on nurturing healthy habits and overcoming unhealthy habits
Do you want to be the iron that gets pulled to a magnet? If yes, choose a healthy magnet!
In order to plant good "seeds of thought", along with practical and easy-to-follow tips on how to shift away from such practices and choose a healthy, sensible and successful path of living, Ves-Leadership Academy & Research Centre(veslarc) conducted two back-to-back sessions for the first year students of VES Polytechnic. Given the need for discussing certain gender-sensitization related themes, the first workshop was designed for only boy-students, and covered over 250 students, while the second was for over 60 girls.
Using the analogy of iron filings and magnets, the theme of being "pulled" towards activities and habits, was explored. The need for clarity in goal planning, and how one can make the best use of the support given by the college, to reach one's goals, were also discussed. Simple tips on changing habits were explained in this interactive session. We are grateful to Principal Shri Vikrant Joshi and his team for their support to this much-needed endeavour.
