SRINAGAR- A three-day stress management workshop organised by the Health, Physical Education, Guidance and Counselling Wing of the State Council of Education Research and Training (SCERT) in collaboration with Art Education and Vocational Education concluded here on Wednesday.
Representatives from all the 10 District Institutes of Education (DIET), faculty members of the SCERT and many students attended the workshop.
Social activist and former civil servant, Ms Roma Wani, who was the chief guest at the event, painstakingly deliberated over the issue for all the three days of the workshop.
Despite her frailty, Ms Wani displayed intense liveliness about the subject and conducted several sessions before and after the lunch break. She answered all the queries of the participants with patience and affection bewitching the audience.
"Stress is a part of life and it must be braved with utmost courage and patience," Wani said. "The easiest way to deal with stress is to shrug it off with a smile. Living in the moment is the key to time management."
She said it is important to be content with what you have rather than craving for something beyond reach.
"Contentment is a state of being satisfied with one's current situation," Wani said. "A sense of contentment automatically generates happiness thereby allowing no room for stress to develop."
She also gave the audience valuable tips to manage time.
"Setting up priorities and chalking out time-bound plans makes tasks easier to handle," she said. "Decisions, once taken, must not be regretted."
Others who spoke on the occasion included Peerzada Bashir Ahmad, Dr Parvez Sajad, Mohammad Amin Beigh, Mudasira Yaseen, Tariq Manzoor Khan, Dr Nazneen, Dr Rabia Naseem, Javid Kirmani, Manzoor Ahmad Wani and Reyaz Ahmad Dar.
