Abstract:   (338 Views)
  • During the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, students were engaged in self-reflection to overcome the anxiety and related disorders. Universities entail the responsibility of a focused engagement approach for their students, this was reinforced using survey-based self-reflection.
  • A survey of fifteen questions covering three domains of holistic health namely - attitude, self-reflection and conscience was undertaken, every question has an ordinal response of Likert scale - one to five. Maximum score is seventy-five and minimum is fifteen. There are five qualitative ordinal levels which can be derived from this score.
  • Perception of illness in the recent past (six months) gave positive finding in 1/3 of the participants, despite good attitude among most of the participants, 85% of the participants showed good holistic health. Participants were largely neutral for donation and charity. 
  • Students shall have self-conscience for constant engagement and involvement to face the new-normal with a better outlook for holistic health. We used survey questionnaire as a holistic health tool for this purpose.
