Living well is not a privilege but a right for everyone. However, with the flow of everyday life, we can hardly make time for ourselves and for our well-being let alone treating our body, mind and soul the way they deserve. Kicking off in Turkey in 2012, Global Wellness Day is an event dedicated to clean living. It is an opportunity for people who want to focus on improving life quality, to share their knowledge and raise awareness of their pursuits in adopting new, healthier habits.
Although it is now a world-renowned event celebrated on the second week of June annually, it did not start as such. The success of Global Wellness Day belongs to one woman, and her team, who believe “you can change your life in a day.”
How it all began
Although “wellness” is a trend right now, back in 2012, it was not a priority in most people’s lives. However, Belgin Aksoy, the founder of Global Wellness Day, took the inspiration from her own journey to a healthier life.
