Global Wellness Day 2024 shatters records as 1 billion people unite for wellness and nature

Global Wellness Day (GWD) marked its 13th anniversary on Saturday, 8 June and was reportedly celebrated by a record-breaking 1 billion people worldwide, making it the most successful year yet.

Founded in 2012 by Belgin Aksoy, GWD is an annual event that highlights the importance of wellness and health. It always takes place on the second Saturday of June, featuring free wellness activities across the globe under the guiding principle that "one day can change your whole life".

Since its inception, GWD has expanded from a single-country event to being observed in more than 170 countries across tens of thousands of locations.

Aksoy celebrated the milestone saying: "In its thirteenth year, GWD was celebrated by approximately 1 billion people around the world. I’m always jubilant and grateful after each GWD as my heart connects to people around the world."

Prominent international hospitality and spa operators, including Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, Oberoi, Jumeirah and Accor, joined in the festivities this year by hosting a range of initiatives designed to engage both guests and staff. Activities ranged from sound baths, sunset yoga and honey tastings to flash mob dances and group fitness classes.

Every event organised for GWD must adhere to three main attributes: it must be educational, non-commercial and complimentary.

Back to nature
This year's theme, #MagentaNature, focused on promoting overall wellbeing by reconnecting with nature, encouraging individuals to embrace the transformative power of harmonising with the environment.

With more than 150 GWD ambassadors, key supporters and volunteers leading the initiative, people of all ages were invited to adopt a lifestyle in unity with nature.

Aksoy commented: “Connecting with nature is not just an activity; it's a way of thinking. Those who choose to live well come to realise that connecting with nature is also a way of life.

“GWD is not just a celebration; it’s a call to action, an invitation for individuals to actively participate in their own wellbeing and contribute to a harmonious relationship with the world around us."
