Global Wellness Day is celebrated each year on the first Saturday of June and this year occurs on June 11th. Founded in Turkey in 2012, GWD is an international social project dedicated to living well and it has now been accepted worldwide. The main purpose of the day is to make us aware of the value of our lives and encourages people all over the world to champion the power of wellness. #ThinkMagenta is the theme for GWD 2022. It is to serve as a reminder to work together to change people’s lives in a positive way and to add color to their thoughts.
