Phrases such as ‘a sound mind in a sound body’ or ‘health is wealth’ have been around for as long as one can remember. Emphasis on a healthy mind and healthy body becomes all the more important during the ongoing pandemic. KIIT School of Management (KSOM) organized a webinar on “Mental Health: Conquering the World with Wellness” under Knowledge Dialogue series on 15th January 2022.
The guest speaker was Grace Grossmann – writer, yoga instructor and wellness coach from Berlin, Germany. As a writer, yoga instructor, wellness coach, and English teacher, Grace has a passion for helping people find peace within. She finds sense through writing and strength through God. She believes people are too pressurized to find happiness when it all comes down to loving yourself and others. Her mission is to show people it is OK to feel anxiety and stress; it can help you grow when handled with care and compassion. Her non-fiction books include humorous and humble accounts of Grace’s spiritual journey to show that reality is always going to hit, but you can get through it. She connects with the reader in an encouraging and lighthearted way through a steady flow of engaging content including practical exercises, questions and good laughs.
Grace Grossman the author of the book “Chill out and Cheer up” was the cynosure of the event, who had the knowledge & understanding to deal with perfection, every single question raised by the students. She talked about both physical & cognitive aspects of how to overcome mental stress & how Yoga and sports give much more peace to our minds if only we take out time & give importance to our mental health. Very pertinent questions were raised by the students.
