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

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

    As everything that is precious to us has been honored with a special day, why is it that we don’t have a special global day dedicated to the only thing which is really valuable to all of us, that is, living well? We can now answer this question by saying “it now exists”. This special day called Global Wellness Day, founded by Belgin Aksoy, the Member of the Board at Aksoy Group and the Creative Director of Richmond International.

    As the founder of Global Wellness Day, Belgin Aksoy intends to bring her vision to the world. She lives by the motto, “One day can change your whole life.” Belgin Aksoy is also the Executive President of Turkish Heart Foundation and a full member at Women Entrepreneurs Association of Turkey (KAGİDER). Belgin Aksoy supports health foundations, leads social wellness projects and speaks at international spa and wellness organizations.

    Global Wellness Day is an entirely not-for-profit day and a social project. The purpose of Global Wellness Day is to ask the question, even if for just one day, “How can I live a healthier and better life?”, to direct the thoughts of both individuals and society towards “living well” and to raise awareness.

    With the slogan “One day can change your whole life,” Global Wellness Day is celebrated on the second Saturday of June every year as an international day.

    The main aims of the day are:

    - To recognize the value of our lives

    - To pause and think, even if for just one day of the year

    - To be free from the stress of everyday city life and bad habits

    - To make peace with ourselves

    - To raise awareness about living well and increase motivation, not just for today, but for the remaining 364 days of the year.

    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. Reflecting its success, in 2018 Global Wellness Day has been celebrated simultaneously in 115 countries at 5000 different locations with different events ranging from the GWD flag reaching the summit of Mt. Everest to giving medical care to children at the Thailand and Myanmar border and visiting elderly people’s home in Brazil.

    In 2016, Global Wellness Institute, awarded the founder of GWD, Belgin Aksoy with ‘Leading Woman in Wellness in 2016’ which is the most prestigious award in wellness-spa industry reaching up to an economic growth of 4.2 trillion dollars. Belgin Aksoy has also been deemed to deserve ‘Most Influential Spa Leader’ award by American Spa in the same year.

    Global Wellness Day will be celebrated on June 8th in 2019.
