Since childhood we are used to seeing postman either with the letters in his hand or carrying big parcels on his shoulders to spread the happiness from one person to another and from one place to another. He is the front face and the brand ambassador of the postal Department performing every second during his duty hours, without thinking of himself for a moment. However, considering the nature of work of postmen, stress, tensions and adverse eating habits affect the health graph of the postmen staff. To inculcate healthy eating habits among postman, Mumbai Region organized a “Fitness Mantra” session at Bi-centennial Hall, of Mumbai GPO on 25 th August 2019.
The session was addressed by Rujuta Diwekar, the winner of the “Nutrition Award” from Asian Institute of Gastroenterology & the country’s foremost speaker on health and wellness on 25 th August, 2019.
During the session her voice was loud and clear, urging postman to use common sense and un-complicate the act of eating. She emphasized on a blend of traditional food wisdom and modern nutritional science for a healthy body and mind, best reflected through the mantra- Eat local, think global.
During the session, the entire postal fraternity of Mumbai Region were present.
The main aim of today’s function was to create awareness about health & fitness among the postmen. The session ended with a smile on the faces of the postmen along with the glow of positiveness in their eyes.
