All of us would like be healthier, to look better, and to live well both physically and spiritually.

    Living well is almost the entire world’s shared dream.

    Founded in 2012 by Belgin Aksoy, the Member of the Board at Aksoy Group and the Creative Director of Richmond Hotels, Global Wellness Day is an entirely not-for-profit day, an international social project dedicated to support the universally shared dream of living a healthier and better life. As the founder and initiator of Global Wellness Day, she intends to bring her vision to the world with the slogan "One day, can change your whole life!"

    The fundamental purpose of the day is to direct the thoughts of both individuals and society towards living well, to make peace with oneself, pause and focus on our wellbeing and free ourselves of bad habits and stresses.

    Turned into an international movement, Global Wellness Day is celebrated only with complimentary activities by millions of people on the second Saturday of June every year in over 170 countries and in tens and thousands of locations around the world simultaneously. Global Wellness Day (GWD) has been recognized by many presidents, mayors, schools, hospitals, associations, foundations, world-renowned athletes, business people, Hollywood stars and much more.

    First celebrated in 2012, Global Wellness Day was established in Turkey as the “first” day dedicated to living well, and has now been accepted worldwide. In 2023, Global Wellness Day was celebrated in over tens of thousands of locations around the world with entirely complimentary activities focusing on the theme #DanceMagenta, once again drawing attention to the importance of "living well”.

    In 2016, Global Wellness Institute awarded her with “Leading Woman in Wellness”, the most prestigious award in the wellness-spa industry reaching up to an economic growth of 4.7 trillion dollars. She has also been deemed to deserve “Most Influential Spa Leader” award by American Spa in the same year. In 2019, Belgin Aksoy was selected as the first non-French person to receive the “Personality of the Year” award by La Fédération des Professionnels du Bien-ētre. In 2022, Aksoy received the “Pioneer of Wellness” award by Seven Stars Luxury Hospitality and Lifestyle Awards.

    In 2024, Global Wellness Day will be celebrated on Saturday, June 8.
