Woman Care Trust successfully celebrated their 26th Senior Ladies Day on 31st August 2017 at Learning Centre. About 80-90 ladies attended the event. As usual we started our function with reciting holy prayer “Chaupai Sahib Path” After prayer all the ladies recited “Shabad , these prayers are not only a way of connecting to god but also provide peace of mind and positive thinking to the ladies attending the function. After the prayers ladies did some exercise. Exercise for seniors offers a variety of key benefits that improve overall quality of life. Regular, moderate physical activity can help manage stress and improve your mood. And, being active on a regular basis may help reduce feelings of depression .WCT had arranged for Tea and Indian snack “Samosa” and Indian sweets for the ladies. This time we had members of Roopa Aur AAP Charitable Trust present to announce their collaboration with WCT to work together for the welfare of the community. After the tea break ladies played some traditional games. Staying active sharpens the brain function of seniors. While participating in a game, there is always a good amount of laughter. Laughing together and having fun can keep the seniors happy, healthy and help the ladies in overcoming depression & loneliness from their life. Baljit Dheil then distributed prizes to the game winners to keep them motivated and feel energetic. Also this time prizes were given to the regular students of WCT playgroup .After playing games WCT had arranged Naturopathy health session for the ladies in which Dr Kamal provided important information on depression its symptoms and ways to deal with it in natural way and managing healthy diet chart in our daily eating schedule, Dr Kamal also answered personal health issues of the ladies.
