The truth is, before Covid-19 there were already 5 pandemics to fight: Insomnia & Chronic Fatigue; Obesity and diabetes; Sedentary lifestyle; Mental health and opioids; Chronic diseases. They haven’t gone away, but healthy lifestyle choices could save millions of lives every year.
This is why, since 2017, we have been promoting 5 pillars of well-being which can be experienced in spas, hotels, resorts, retreats, hot springs, fitness clubs, yoga studios… around the world during Wellness Weekends: Sleep & Creativity; Nutrition and immunity; Movement & Vitality; Mindfulness & Serenity; Sense of purpose and Solidarity.
“Wellness is a map that tells you where you have been, where you are and where you are heading. Our actions today can balance the past, enrich the present, and extend the future. It’s up to us to use a card wisely, if at all … ”
This 5e edition of the World Wellness Weekend will be a hybrid celebration. Whenever possible, outdoors or indoors (in spacious rooms with air circulation), participants will be connected by well-being, wearing a mask, respectfully 6 feet away from one of the ‘other, or a “separate hockey stick” (as we say in Canada)!
Those less fortunate at home, in cities where Covid is still present, will be able to travel the world with inspiring online videos, tutorials, conferences, and even 360 ° immersive videos.
This year for the first time, wellmap.org (a geolocator in 16 languages) will spotlight “champions of well-being”: professionals and individuals, who go above and beyond to safely inspire and empower local communities , with very original activities (see the Country updates).
