Yoga breaks could become compulsory in Indian offices to help reduce staff stress and depression, if a government proposal is passed.
The Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) has asked Indian business to get involved with International Yoga Day on June 21. The government has also suggested organizations encourage a physical exercise regime and create regular 30-minute break for yoga for their employees.
"We have invited all businesses to participate in Yoga Day this year because employees in the corporate sector face a lot of stress. It will be a good opportunity for them to release their stress through yoga. Also, we have written to corporate bodies like the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India for releasing a circular in corporate offices associated with them to include a 30-minute mandatory yoga program for their employees," AYUSH Ministry Joint Secretary Anil Kumar Ganeriwala said, as quoted by India Today.
"AYUSH ministry is ready to provide all the necessary help to the corporate sector as and when required. We realize that employees working in the private sector are very stressed, especially in metropolitan cities. They are always under pressure be it from their long working hours, sitting posture or travelling time. They need to be rejuvenated and yoga can be the answer for them," he said.
"We have also advised the corporate sector to conduct brief workshops on yoga as this will create interest and awareness among employees," Ganeriwala added.
