In the stressful life that we live, we have somehow become machines, forgetting to live life. Hence the need for Global Wellness Day, to shed light on the fact that life is all about wellness. Last year saw Global Wellness Day celebrations in over 100 countries and 4,000 locations, and this year is no less.
This year Global Wellness Ambassador Rekha Chaudhari, keeping with the motto of one day can change your whole life, gave global Wellness a newer meaning by bringing it to the citizens of India with unique programmes. Blood donation drives, eye, dental and body checkups, enhancing fitness in the hospitality industry, yoga, meditation, physiotherapy, healthy food workshops, BMI counselling, healthy diet tips, the bid was to get as many citizens to say Yes to wellness. And simply change the way they look at life.
The finale was a special programme for the Mantralaya employees to drive home the concept of Wellness at Workplace on June 13, graced by the Honourable Chief Minister, Mr Devendra Fadnavis, Global Wellness Ambassador Rekha Chaudhari, Girish Mahjan - Hon Medical Education Minister, Jayakumar Rawal - Minister of Tourism Employment Guarantee Scheme, Chandrashekhar Bawankule - Maharashtra State Electricity Minister besides dignitaries Dino Morea, Shailendra Singh, Smita Thackeray, who are role models of wellness and fitness. The centrestage was taken by the farmer’s children of (JSWE) Maharashtra, specifically trained and skilled to perform holistic wellness treatments, demonstrating the benefits of being healthy and showcasing wellness, driving home the thought with simplicity and ease!
“Wellness is not a luxury. It is in fact, the inherent right of every individual and we are working hard to create this awareness for the betterment of society. Global Wellness Day is a social platform that creates awareness in the entire world for the importance of living well,” averred Global Wellness Ambassador Rekha Chaudhari.
“I am happy to now and be part of this day where wellness is being celebrated. Health, physical, mental or emotional is something we forget to take care of as we get so caught up in our day-to-day life and its many issues. It is important to draw your attention back to you and focus on yourself,” says Dino Morea

And it is this positivity that keeps us going,” sums up Shailendra Singh.Global Wellness Week is partnered by JCKRC and B Lab.
