Why is SME necessary?
Your life can be challenging and stressful at times. We Understand!
Although moderate levels of stress and anxiety are part of life. As encouragement, it may be good for us. However, when the level of stress increases or stays within for a long time, it can become a burden, reduce productivity, and even cause a health risk.
Furthermore, regular health checkups are essential to detect specific problems in the body, which may not express its symptoms immediately. With regular medical exams, one can track those building diseases and take preventive measures against them immediately, especially in their initial stage, before allowing the condition to grow into life-threatening.
Thus, SME is important! All educational institutes throughout Canada must implement it as a standard practice.
