Health promotion is based around the saying “Prevention is better than cure” and it aims at preventing morbidity and mortality. Health promotion enhances the quality of life for all people. Leading a healthy lifestyle enables one to perform better in all aspects of life. It was our initiative to conduct a healthy living workshop for the traffic policemen of Navi Mumbai, as part of worksite health promotion program. In this program, 60 traffic policemen from across Navi Mumbai were addressed concerning the aspects of healthy living and prevention of the health hazards associated with their profession. Feedback generated after the workshop with help of Questionnaire. The average feedback score on Likart’s scale was 4.7out of 5. Thus this workshop well appreciated in this community. We believe if they are offered such programs in times to come it shall spark a change for the better. The frequency of such programs should be increased in the future to keep this momentum going as being healthy isn’t a fad or a trend. Instead it is a lifestyle.
