Global Wellness Day: Treat yo’self

The second Saturday of June, better known as Global Wellness Day, is a gentle nudge to pause and reflect on our lifestyle. It encourages us to take a step back from our busy routines and embrace simple yet powerful habits that promote overall wellness, to train ourselves to prioritise our well-being and make positive choices that contribute to a healthier and happier life.

So, what exactly is Global Wellness Day all about?
It's a reminder to focus on holistic wellness encompassing physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It's a call to action, urging us to make conscious choices that nurture our bodies, minds, and spirits. The beauty of Global Wellness Day lies in its simplicity. It doesn't require grand gestures or elaborate plans. Instead, it emphasises on small, meaningful actions that can have a significant impact on our wellbeing.
Here are a few simple ways to celebrate Global Wellness Day and embark on a journey of self-care:

Shake it:

Engage in physical activity that brings you joy. It could be a walk outside, a yoga session, dancing to your favourite bangers, or trying out a new sport. The goal is to get your body moving and shaking.

Zen Mode:
Take a moment to tune into the present moment and cultivate a sense of inner peace. Try meditation, deep breathing exercises, or mindful walking. Give yourself permission to slow down, let go of distractions, and find stillness within.

Connect with loved ones:

Prioritise quality time with your family and friends. Whether it's a phone call, starting a new tv show together or catching up over a meal, engaging in conversations, feeling connected and supported by loved ones is essential for our overall well-being. You could even combine this with a physical activity or other forms of wellness

Nourish your body:
