Saturday, June 8, 2019, will mark the eighth annual Global Wellness Day (GWD) celebrations and the fifth time the special day is being celebrated internationally. This year, thousands of locations across the globe, including hotel and spa chains, fitness centers, yoga studios, associations, foundations, hospitals, schools, senior living homes, governments, celebrities, and businesspeople will be celebrating GWD with free, non-commercial, health and wellness activities for the public. With the motto; “One day, can change your whole life!” the theme for Global Wellness Day 2019 is community and kids’ wellness with the goal to increase good deeds and decrease worldwide depression.
Founder Belgin Aksoy’s dream of celebrating a day dedicated to wellness has inspired an international network of over 87 GWD Ambassadors, 25 Key Supporters, and four Advisors (distinguished Advisors include Mary Bemis, founder of Insider’s Guide to Spas), who are lifestyle-oriented entrepreneurs and wellness professionals, to organize complimentary wellness events around the globe. Cayman Islands, China, Peru, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Dominican Republic are some of the new countries that are on board for this year.
