How Wellness Day Is Encouraging You To Live A Healthier Life

The 6th anniversary of Global Wellness Day (GWD) will be celebrated on June 10, 2017. A day dedicated to living well, Global Wellness Day aims:

  • 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

GWD was founded by Turkish native, Belgin Aksoy Berkin. Its purpose is to make us ask ourselves “How can I live a healthier and better life?” and to direct our thoughts not only as individuals, but as a society, on how to “live well.”

Berkin, a cancer survivor, has gained support in more than 4,000 locations in 100 countries in 2017 to organize complimentary wellness events. These events are not commercial and are free and open to the public. Berkin strongly believes that wellness is not a luxury, but an inherit right. Wellness Day has gained more than 85 Ambassadors to help spread this movement.

Cooper Aerobics focuses on a well-rounded approach to health, fitness, nutrition and life, working on the whole you. Focusing on the mind, body and soul while enjoying yourself through the process. We want you to participate in GWD and encourage you to follow their manifesto:

1) Walk for an hour

2) Drink more water

3) Don’t use plastic bottles

4) Eat healthy food

5) Do a good deed

6) Have a family dinner with your loved ones

7) Go to sleep at 10 p.m.

Just as we encourage you to follow a Cooperized lifestyle with Dr. Cooper’s eight steps to Get Cooperized, their seven steps can help you with “living well.”

Some wellness activities to participate in could include taking a Pilates, dance or other group exercise class which you can all find here at Cooper Aerobics. Incorporate a healthy lunch on this day at Cedars Café, located inside Cooper Fitness Center or enjoy a relaxing stay-cation at Cooper Hotel. Cooper Spa Dallas can also help you unwind with massage chairs and special treatments.
