VELLORE: The four attitudes of thankfulness, contentment, simplicity and generosity can help manage good lifestyle, noted Hugh Skeil, manager, development office, Christian Medical College Hospital.

He said this while inaugurating a one-day conference on lifestyle management organised by the Department of Business Administration at the Auxilium College on Wednesday.

Hugh said both internal and external factors decided the lifestyle which included culture, expectations, options and choices.

While many longed for better lifestyle conditions, they must know how to make a living and how to live as the two different approaches to lifestyle management. Lifestyle changes also reflected on lifestyle diseases, he said adding that sedentary lifestyle of many people were forcing India to emerge as the diabetes capital of the world.

“Balancing a good lifestyle is a big challenge,” he noted and  advised the audience to inculcate self-discipline, planning, hard work and perseverance to achieve a better lifestyle.

Ann Bothamley, counsellor at CMC, while speaking on relationship management said relationship begins when we open up ourselves to share our feelings, she pointed out stressing on ‘caring and sharing.’ “As human beings, we are complex and if we change our attitude, we can reach others,” she noted.

Technical sessions on spiritual management were chaired by Dr Bhushan D Sudhakar of Pondicherry University and moderated by Bhuvanasundari Sudharshan from Aurobindo Ashram, Auroville, Pondicherry.
