Global Wellness Day 2022 will remind the world to choose joy
POSTED 09 Mar 2022 . BY Megan Whitby
In 2022, GWD will invite people to #ThinkMagenta, recommending simple affirmations

#ThinkMagenta provides a very simple way to disperse the dark clouds

Global Wellness Day (GWD) headquarters has revealed #ThinkMagenta as the theme of its 2022 event scheduled for 11 June.

Originally launched in 2012, the nonprofit event founded by Belgin Aksoy encourages people all over the world to champion the power of wellness. The event sees a range of free health and wellness activities held for the public, which many spas across the world are involved in.

Since its inception, GWD has grown from being celebrated in one country to being observed in 170 countries in tens of thousands of locations.

In 2022, GWD will invite people to #ThinkMagenta, recommending simple but effective affirmations, reminding people that living well begins in the mind.

“#ThinkMagenta is not about being optimistic, it’s about being realistic,” explains Aksoy, “things happen in our lives and we have the choice to call them good or bad things.

“Sometimes difficulties, failures or illnesses become the greatest teachers. No matter what is happening we can always find a way to choose joy.”

According to Aksoy, #ThinkMagenta is simple to do whether at home, in the office or outside. She recommends starting with three easy steps - stop, breathe and smile.

“In stressful, anxious, tense and negative moments, #ThinkMagenta provides a very simple way to disperse the dark clouds,” she adds.

The GWD team has compiled a set of suggestions that encourages everyone to think positively. Small recommendations that can make a substantial difference in everyone’s daily life, gathered under five headings:

1. Let GWD’s Manifesto be your compass
• Walk for an hour.
• Drink more water.
• Don’t use plastic bottles.
• Eat healthy food.
• Do a good deed.
• Have a family dinner with loved ones.
• Sleep at 10 pm.
2. Use the right words.
3. Simplify your life.
4. Be open to different experiences.
5. Share goodness.

Aksoy sums up GWD’s 2022 theme reflecting on how far the event has come: “We were just a few people when we set out on a journey for GWD – today more than 350 million people around the world celebrate it.

“Even though GWD is only one day that inspires people to live well, it promotes a philosophy that spans the whole year. In 2022, we desperately need the spirit of GWD and we’re here to change the way people think. Quite simply… #ThinkMagenta.”
