Celebrate Global Wellness Day on June 13, 2015

One day of wellness can change your life!

We are joining hundreds of companies in over 50 countries worldwide in “Saying Yes!” to Global Wellness Day, a one-day event celebrating health and wellbeing taking place onSaturday, June 13, 2015. The idea is to increase global consciousness of living a better life, even if for one day, by drawing a focus on healthier lifestyle choices.

As a U.S. Ambassador for Global Wellness Day, I encourage all wellness-minded leaders to participate in this special day, and to help spread the word of wellness around the globe.

The campaign challenges people to change one aspect of their lives for a day and outlines seven steps to better wellness: What will you say “yes” to today?

– Drink more water
– Walk for an hour
– Shop locally and eat organically
– Stop using plastic bottles
– Do a good deed
– Eat a family dinner
– Go to bed at 10pm

The History of Global Wellness Day

The non-profit project created by Belgin Aksoy three years ago is being embraced by the spa and wellness world and has now also been accepted as a Global Wellness Instituteinitiative. Belgin, who came up with an idea to combat depression and unhappiness by promoting the importance of living well, says, “We’ve honored almost everything which is valuable to us with a special day, so why not have one that’s dedicated to the universally accepted importance of wellness?”

Please join us to stand united with hundreds of spas and wellness organizations in more than 50 countries to support proactive wellness!
