Physical and mental fitness are interlinked. When you feel healthy, your mind is agile and active. With this thought, JRU launches regular Zumba sessions for students to make health a part of University’s curriculum. Launched as Project Mindfulness, it is aimed at helping students to improve their health and well-being.
The Project was launched during ROOTS 2019, as freshers were initiated into the JRU family. The seeks to encourage healthy lifestyle among JRU students, staff and faculty.
“This project span the areas of physical and mental fitness. It is about providing an environment that creates awareness on the importance of health and wellness, topics that deserve attention,” says Dr Piyush Ranjan, Registrar, JRU.
Such initiatives on campus always help students learn strategies to manage stress related to student life and achieve work/life balance.
“JRU’s Project Mindfulness initiative is important because it promotes well-being, it creates conversation about the importance of well-being, and it supports students with possible solutions for living balanced lives,” Dr Ranjan adds.
The Zumba sessions at ROOTS 2019 witnessed maximum participation from freshers. For some of them, it is not only a time to become healthy, but also a time to bond and make new friends.
As education and health integrate on JRU campus, the journey of ‘healthy mind in a healthy body’ continues for every student from now on. It is time to say – Health wins!
