The personnel ministry has issued an order urging all central government ministries and departments to embrace and promote a new Yoga protocol known as Y-Break – Yoga at office chair. Employees are encouraged to take short breaks during work hours to engage in this practice, aimed at relieving stress, refreshing the mind, and enhancing focus.
