People suffering from obesity often tend to have issues with body image. Moreover the society adds fuel to the fire by addressing these people with terms like “fat”, “unfit”, “lazy”, etc. Such negative terms most of the time compel them to become negative about themselves due to which they either become a rebel or go into a shell.
Keeping this issue in mind a session was planned by Ms. Rajshree (Clinical counsellor) from Adveka Foundation. The purpose of the session was to help these patients with effective goal setting, building positive self-talk, improving self-esteem and adopting relaxation & mindfulness techniques. It was conducted in a very unique way by engaging patients in interesting small activities wherein they opened up to each other.
The participation of patients in the activities was overwhelming. It was great to see them walk out of the session more confident and determined to work towards their health goals.
