The proportion of stress and heart diseases related to lifestyle has increased in the urban areas. Treatments involving surgeries and the indirect cost of reduced efficiency of the patients post the treatment means enormous amounts of money is going down the drain. To avoid this, basic work needs to be undertaken at all levels.
As a part of this, various programmes can be organized in the cooperative housing societies in the urban areas. Through these programmes, the resident members of the societies can be informed with demonstrations about how to adopt a better lifestyle from the health point of view. Also, they can be informed about how timely annual health checkups can help in taking appropriate measures in time and ensure a healthy life.
