Bhubaneswar, Feb 15: Participating in a Youth Connect Programmeon ‘’Better Lifestyle for Healthy Living’’ conducted at Government ITI Bhubaneswar today, two top psychiatrists of the city advised the students to balance work, studies, life, leisure and be active for sports so that depressions, tension and mental pressure could remain at bay.
Dr. Suvendu Mishra, psychiatrist from SUM Hospital advised the students to develop good hobbies to engage their minds with positive thought process.
“Positive thoughts induced by good videos, songs and constructive discussions with fellow students can play important roles in shaping our lives and we should not allow our minds to glue to negative thoughts,’’ he said and also requested the participating students to minimize the use of Smart Phones as the devices are making people more lonely and isolated now-a-days.
Dr Amit Pattajoshi, psychiatrist from Hi-Tech Medical College and Hospital said “the students should learn the art of balancing life, work and other things of their lives so that they can reduce the stress elements in their lives.’’
Both the city-based leading psychiatrists, however, while answering queries from girls and boys advised the students not to over react in situations and could come back to their houses or hostels as the society has become extra violent and reactive. “We must judge the situation and if possible could wish for a safer exit than rather involving ourselves in trouble,’’ they added.
Youth Connect Programme is being implemented at the level of selective educational institutions across the Capital City. This is a collaborative initiative of Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation, Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited and United Nations Population Fund to strengthen the social components of the Smart City.
