Aarogyalay, as the name suggests is a forum that means ‘aarogya’ in ‘vidyalays’ which connotes to wellness in schools. It is that organization that seeks to create awareness among the school children about how to deal with stress and anxiety and concentrate on their aspirations and goals.
What it is concerned about?
Stress is the buzzword at this moment. It is something that does not require any age group to target and has extreme level consequences. The sole motive of Aarogyalay is to catch the children at a young stage so that an awareness can be created and stress could be managed and controlled easily. This organization at its first founder’s day, organized a meet regarding the Role of Ayurveda inStress Management on the 25th of January, 2018 at India International Centre, Max Fuller Marg, New Delhi.

Aarogyalay had organized workshops in more than 100 schools and had involved more than 250 Ayurveda practitioners in their cause.
What steps have they taken?
Many schools participated in the talk organized by Aarogyalay where the principals of certain schools shared the present scenario of children as to how they deal with stress in their daily lives. This is a serious issue that needs to be taken care of and that is the reason why Aarogyalay came up to find solutions to this issue that is of utmost importance. Today’s children are tomorrow’s future. And if these children are left behind due to our misconception and effort, nothing can be a bigger loss than this.
Kairali’s Efforts to Combat Present-day Issues
There are various issues with which children deal and their stress levels increases to a considerable level. Situations like stress from completing the home-work, stress to score higher marks in class, living up to parents’ expectations, stress that the internet produces coupled with peer pressure etc. add up the list. All these conditions leads to different health problems like obesity, depression and aggression. This is the sole cause for unwanted extreme level criminal cases in schools. Now to counter such cases, Aarogyalay has come up with various innovative techniques that helps to divert the mind from excess pressure and free their mind to do something productive. But the scenario has changed after Aarogyalay’s visit to schools. Their innovative techniques through fun and games makes the children interested in their talks and awareness programs.

Lifestyle changes too makes a vast difference in managing stress.
Dr. Piyush Juneja, Business Head, Aarogyalay, has stated that the increasing digitalization of the world has led to severe losses along with the advantages. This is also a major reason for stress among children. The opening up of many global platforms for proving their talents and also the increasing demand of different gadgets are an added point for increasing the stress level. All these not only lead to stress but also results in behavioral change. Kids not only stay limited to quarrelling or small fights but ends up to crimes like murder. It is high time that these needs to be cut down in the grass root level itself.
