”The purpose of the seminar was to discuss various aspects which contribute to the wellness of the soldiers, including their families,” said Lt Col Devender Anand, defence spokesperson.

“It is being organised to enhance awareness about the ability of the human mind to overcome challenges posed by the army way of life to ensure high happiness quotient and wellness,” he added.

In his inaugural address, GOC-in-C Northern Command Lt Gen Upendra Dwivedi emphasised on the collective need to focus on the three pillars of physical, mental and spiritual health to ensure the wellness of present and future generations.

He also spoke of the need for empowering the ex-servicemen by preparing them for a second career.

On the first day of the seminar, the factors causing stress on an individual, which include occupational and socio-economic factors were discussed. The ways to deal with these stressors were deliberated upon. Panellists for this discussion included scientists from DRDO Dr Narender Pal Singh, Dr Sandhya Verma and Brigadier AK Pandey.
