Abstract:- Significant and positive transformation of the society of women rises in everyprofession. There was a promising growth of women in all streams and indecision making bodies across the globe.  In the urge of all kinds of fulfillment, whole mankind including women folks, tried every hardship to work out to the maximum. No matter day or night, restlessly working to meet the dreams. Long awaiting dreams which were deeply hidden within the hearts of women, all getting unraveled to materialize in any possible way. Generations after generations, the personality, the attitudes shifted from self-satisfaction to restlessness increased multifold. Unbothered of how adversely this workaholic approach may impact her holistic life. A bolt from blue. Worked for Centuries, yet Desires always remain unfulfilled even after taking new forms. Rather than work for a living, people were now programmed to do work. These created disturbances and mess in daily life. Varied disorders and tensions (physical, emotional and mental) in individual lives adversely affected society. Medical and psychological reports confirmed that materially more affluent people had more grip of tensions. This depicted, that the causes of imbalance were endless desires and lust for worldly pleasures but not scarcity.

Keywords:- Life Style Management, Integrated Health Sciences Model, Working Women, Wellness.
