On the occasion of World Meditation Day, HCMCT Manipal Hospitals, a multi-specialty medical facility organised a stress management session followed by a 15-minute guided meditation session for employees and patients across Manipal Hospitals Delhi and Jaipur, the company said.
The session was organised by the company’s Human Resource Department to educate the importance of mediation during the crisis. The session aimed to raise awareness among hospital staff and patients about the importance of understanding the true meaning of stress management, exercises, and meditation, it added.
“Covid patients and employees should practice prone positions, breathing exercises & meditation to stay fit. There is so much stress people are undergoing these days which is affecting them mentally as well as physically. Therefore, 10 minutes of meditation daily will help them reduce stress and anxiety to stay positive and healthy,” Nomita Sarkar, HOD Nursing said.
Sarkar also observed that Covid-19 has brought a lot of stress and anxiety among medical staff and patients, affecting our overall well-being and immunity. But a healthy and positive approach like intake of immunity-boosting foods and practicing yoga, meditation – can further strengthen you against the virus.
