Global Wellness Day

GLOBAL WELLNESS DAY PHILIPPINES  was a huge success. The worldwide celebration of GLOBAL WELLNESS DAY was last June 11, 2016, from 7am to 11am at the 2nd Floor of FTX Fitness Exchange.

GWD   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.  

Global Wellness Day was established in Turkey as the “first” day dedicated to living well, and has now been accepted world-wide.  It is officially celebrated on the second Saturday of June every year in 7   continents.  This year  it was celebrated in 83   countries   with   86 ambassadors thus reflecting its success. 

To  get   one   step   closer   towards   living   well,   let   our   manifesto   be   yourstarting point.   In order to make Wellness a lifestyle, Global Wellness Dayaims to adopt the following seven simple steps. What is important is not to implement all of the steps all at once, but to incorporate at least just a few ofthem into your daily life on a regular basis.

Aims of  GWD:

1. To recognize the value of our lives
2. To pause and think, even if for just one day of the year
3.  To be free from the stress of everyday city life and bad habits
4.  To make peace with ourselves
5.  To raise awareness about living well and increase motivation, not justfor today, but for the remaining 364 days of the year.

1- Walk for an hour. 
2- Drink more water. 
3- Don’t use plastic bottles. 
4- Eat organic foods. 
5- Do a good deed. 
6- Have a family dinner.
