We Indians are pretty much hard working people. We will go to any extend to complete our given task.
With the Internet coming into our lives and the MNC Culture, the working hours of offices have increased from 12 to 15 hours. Though we have labour laws in India for the workers, we seldom have any law or policies for the White Collar Employees.
With the change in lifestyle, we have also been experiencing more and more lifestyle diseases such as Diabetis, PCOD, Blood Pressure fluctuation, Obesity, etc.etc. It is important that right now we take control of our lives, before it is messed up further.
The number of breaks that our employees, take during their working hours also results in increased working hours. There is nothing wrong in taking small breaks between but when the work breaks are about a couple of hours, then it means the working hours get automatically extended. Corporate activities are good but when those activities include gossiping about your team mates at work, it is literally of no use to you or to the organisation.
With this campaign. Work Smart. I just intend to make people aware and responsible to complete their tasks in office on time and return home. A lot of women are facing a lot of health issues such as PCOD.
The idea behind this campaign is not to ask the Corporates to give women, less stress job or to allow them to go home.
Seriously, women going home earlier than men, would really not bring a bigger change in their lifestyle, because the kitchen closes only when the last person goes to sleep.
The idea behind this campaign is to check, how much does our society and its members know about Menstruation and different complications that arise along with the same, such as PCOD.
The reason, why I am doing this campaign is to make people aware, how their lifestyle is affecting their health and also to get them talk about a taboo subject like Periods.
Why did I choose something like PCOD, well for the following reasons:
- Talking about menstruation or periods even today is a taboo in our society.
- We barely have any information available with us regarding PCOD or PCOS, which is today affecting a lot of women in our society.
- Unlike Diabetis and Blood Pressure, PCOD barely shows any symptoms externally, so we seldom know if anybody is suffering from the same.
- PCOD is caused due to hormonal fluctuation and also has a direct impact on the mental health of the person.
- Having suffered from PCOD for years, I feel it is important to talk about the same openly in our society.
Our lifestyle has effect on our health but humanly it is impossible for me alone to cover all the issues.
Men and Women co-exist in our society. It is next to impossible to determine who is superior and who is inferior. But one thing that we need to remember is , if we do not work together, without understanding each other, we cannot solve our own individual problems.
For the purpose of the same, I will be interviewing a few people online, who are a part of our society to share their view points and knowledge about Periods and PCOD. If you wish to be a part of this conversation, then please do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message on my facebook account .
Hereunder are a few people, who support this initiative.
