HEALTH & WELLNESS


Health & Wellness Section

The idea behind the Wellness Seekers Academy was conceived in 2017 as The Wellness Initiative - to help individuals take a holistic approach to their wellness and be better contributors to groups and organisational wellbeing.

Having spent more than three decades working with Global Organisations with almost 20 years in the development sector and having travelled extensively, it was visible that the changing lifestyles coupled with ever-increasing work pressures take a heavy toll on the overall wellness of individuals.

Increasing stress and gradual deterioration in the ability to relate and empathise socially are causing severe breakdown.

We conducted several seminars and workshops across various wellness themes by experts to understand how people across cross-sections of age, gender, occupation, etc., perceived their own wellness needs and the benefits of addressing them. We also conducted a wellness survey covering 12,500+ respondents across the country that provided valuable insights.

The above activities helped concretise the direction and identify steps needed to make individuals and institutions understand the nuances of how Mental Health & Wellness are related to reducing stress and anxiety. And can lead to happiness and success in their personal and professional lives.

Today, the Academy has courses and programs that address the wellness needs of individuals, employees, organisations, institutions, and even states & countries.
