these six areas: healing, nutrition, relationships, gratitude, fitness and
beauty. After all, being healthier, looking better and living well both physically
and spiritually is what life–and Global Wellness Day –are all about.
Seven Years of Living Well
Wellness Day was established in Turkey in 2012 as the first day dedicated to
living well. In 2018, it was celebrated simultaneously in 130 countries at 5,000

think GWD is an excellent day to kick start healthy lifestyle changes by swapping
a bad habit with a new habit. In
addition, try a new fitness
activity or spa treatment with your girlfriends to help you start a wellness
practice–and have fun sharing your experience.
Keeping Wellness Simple
concept of Global Wellness Day is simple. And incorporating GWD’s Seven Simple
Steps to Wellness makes being happier and healthier easier. In addition, if you
incorporate just a few of these practices into
your daily routine on a regular basis, you’ll soon be living a well life.
Moreover, if you help others do the same, you’ll spread the wellness dream.

What’s New for 2019?
year, Global Wellness Day organizers remind us that wellness includes mental,
and social wellbeing, not just physical health or the absence of disease. GWD
points out that according to several studies, the most common health problem in
the world is depression. In addition, this serious condition can lead to insomnia,
stress, poor nutrition, physical inactivity, obesity and heart disease and
other serious diseases.
invites us all to begin our own wellness journey by making time to:
the value of our lives
and think, even if for just one day of the year
free from the stress of everyday city life and bad habits
peace with ourselves
awareness about living well and increase motivation, not just for today,
but for the remaining 364 days of the year
Make it Fun
think Global Wellness Day is a perfect time to have some fun. After your
wellness day activity, gather BFFs and
try new spa, fitness and wellness activities together. Or organize a wellness
picnic with healthy food and activities. It’s a great way to set a good example
and show the kids, friends and family in your life that that you care about their
health and happiness.
