'Organisations can promote the culture of exercise woven into routine'

An AMC for well-being

We take annual maintenance contracts (AMCs) for almost all the gadgets we use. “Why not, then, look at the need for a similar contract on a daily level, say, a DMC or daily maintenance contract, to ensure good health?” asks Dr B. S. Tiruvadanan, a Chennai-based consultant surgeon, specialising in gastroenterology.
“Today’s life is characterised by speed. In fact, so much speed that we don’t have time for ourselves,” he rues. “The ‘contract,’ therefore, is essentially about giving oneself the time. Time to take the mind off worries, to exercise and keep fit, and to think what really one wants to pursue,” explains the doctor, during an interaction with Business Line.
