Todays day is stressful, full of anxiety and tensions. Most population are engaged in Desk work rather than field work. Desk work consume no energy but puts up extra calorie to body. Teenagers go through dieting and skip meals but most of them have habits of eating at night which is also termed as Night Snacking Syndrome. All these factors and activities hamper normal functioning of body leading to lifestyle disorders. Hence, the department helps improving day to day activity of a person to community level which further make healthy community. Swasthavritta department works as backbone for institution.
