First celebrated in 2012, Global Wellness Day was established in Turkey as the “first” day dedicated to living well, and has now become a world-wide annual event. This year it takes place on 10th June 2017 and joins people in the shared values of wanting to be healthier, to look better, and to live well both physically and spiritually. Living well is the shared dream across the globe.
The thinking behind Global Wellness Day is to embrace and celebrate our health and wellbeing, but also to promote this. Highlighting the benefits of living well, there is a team of ambassadors who are the guiding lights of the event. Many spas are actively participating in the global day of celebration with events and activities promoting healthy eating, fitness, meditation and wellness in general.
Global Wellness Day
Global Wellness Day is an entirely not-for-profit day, a social project created by volunteers dedicated to living well. The purpose of Global Wellness Day is to ask the question, even if for just one day, “How can I live a healthier and better life?”, to direct the thoughts of both individuals and society towards “living well” and to raise awareness.
The main aims of the day are:
To recognise the value of our lives
To pause and think, even if for just one day of the year
To be free from the stress of everyday city life and bad habits
To make peace with ourselves
To raise awareness about living well and increase motivation, not just for today, but for the remaining 364 days of the year
You can also try these seven simple steps at home in order to make wellness your lifestyle. What is important is not to implement all of the steps all at once, but to incorporate at least just a few of them into your daily life on a regular basis.
