What is global wellness day?
Global Wellness Day is celebrated every year in June. This day was designed to support our vision of living a robust, fulfilling, and healthier lifestyle.
The slogan of Global Wellness Day is “One day can change your whole life”. It is a social project with the purpose of encouraging people across the world to take care of their physical, emotional, and mental needs.
This year’s theme is “ThinkMagenta.” The concept behind this theme is to eliminate all forms of negative thinking by connecting with yourself and replacing it with positivity.
This day is not only about positive thinking, it is about realistically setting your goals to live a better life. Everybody experiences failures but how we deal with those failures is what determines our strength.
Although the day lasts for only 24 hours, the concept of Global Wellness Day should be applied to our daily lives.
How to Celebrate Global Wellness Day?
Global Wellness Day doesn’t have to be an elaborate event for you. It can be as simple as including small self-care habits into your routine. You should strive to connect with your wellness.
Here are simple ways you can celebrate Global Wellness Day.
Human beings are designed to move their body for physical, mental, and emotional well-being. If you are already working out, perhaps taking up a different type of exercise would be a great initiative to celebrate Global Wellness Day. A simple yoga or a light walk in the morning would suffice to connect with your overall wellness.
In this fast-paced world, we don’t have time to stop and think about our actions. It is not easy living in the moment. Finding peace within ourselves is what mindfulness is all about. Try meditating or doing breathing exercises before heading out to work as it is a part of your wellness journey. All you need to do is spare five minutes of your day. Remember your mind needs as much attention as your body does. Meditation is like giving your mind a much-needed breather.
You can honor Global Wellness Day by indulging in a bit of self-care. Go for a spa day, relax your mind and body, get massages, take a pilates class, and end the day with a nice dinner with your loved ones. Or you can sit back and relax in your lounge with a good ol combo of a movie and popcorn. Unwind your mind!
When you connect with nature, your mind restarts. It gets a break from the hustle and bustle of the city and work life. A short walk in the park, or near the lake will do wonders for your well-being, both physical and mental. Do not underestimate the power of nature, put on your comfy walking shoes and step out of your house.
You are what you eat holds true. The type of food we consume has a major impact on our body, mood, and emotions. Therefore, on this wellness day try to opt for clean eating the entire day. You can start your day with a fresh smoothie or overnight oats.
Select healthy rice or salad bowls for lunch and for dinner have fish and lots of veggies. Eating meals with your friends or family is also a crucial part of Global Wellness Day. This way you’re doing more than just nourishing your body. Your mind and soul are going to get a good dose of nourishment as well.
Celebrating this day involves recognizing your value, and taking care of your emotional, mental, and physical well-being.
It is about slowing down, pausing, and releasing ourselves from self-debilitating habits. It is all about adopting a ‘can do’ positive mindset and increasing your motivation. Live well, make peace with yourself, and #thinkmagenta.
