Global Wellness Day, What is it?
On June 9th this year, you’ll see lot’s of #globalwellnessday or #GWD in your Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook feeds. Likely, you’re friends and family will post pictures of their Global Wellness Day experience. Whether you are a yogi, a vegan chef, a runner, or someone who enjoys relaxing with family, we invite you to keep Global Wellness Day in mind and use it to its fullest advantage.
But what is it, really?
While, yes, it is kind of about exercise and ingesting better food, that’s not exactly the purpose of Global Wellness Day. Global Wellness Day started in Turkey not so many years ago. Since then, it is celebrated in almost 5,000 facilities worldwide. Why is it catching on so fast? Just like they said, “Living well is almost the entire world’s shared dream.” So, of course people want to come together and feel the bond of goal setting and achievement! Check out their about us page’s list of aims for this designated day of wellness:
- To recognize 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
What it means to Save Me From
What we really value here at Save Me From is the principlesof truly living well. We value balance, empowerment,wholeness, and a positive self-identity. We believe that life is lived fully when it has an attitude of progress. We believe that by getting to know yourself, you can truly achieve the happiness that living well brings. Don’t get us wrong- this isn’t just a mindset. This is a lifestyle of treating yourself well through positive self-image and positive, healthy choices. Again, this is a process, it comes with time, and your brain and body are well equipped to do it.
So, our goal for Global Wellness Day is to do just as it was intended- step back and think about how our choices are affecting our wellness, make peace with the progress we’ve made (or not made), and determine to do better for the next year.
