Global Wellness Day (GWD) has announced #ThinkMagenta as the theme of Global Wellness Day, which will be celebrated on Saturday June 11, 2022. #ThinkMagenta is an idea that rises amidst the negativity in the world – a reminder with a positive effect on life. This year Global Wellness Day Ambassadors, Key Supporters and volunteers vow to work together to change people’s lives in a positive way and to add color to their thoughts.
In 2022 Global Wellness Day will incorporate the theme by inviting people to #ThinkMagenta, recommending simple but effective affirmations, reminding people that living well begins in the mind. When you know where to look, there is a good side to even the toughest days. We want to spread the #ThinkMagenta philosophy within communities and beyond.
“Think magenta is not about being optimistic, it is about being realistic,” says Global Wellness Day Founder Belgin 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.”
#ThinkMagenta is simple to do whether at home, in the office or outside. It all starts with three extremely easy steps – stop, breathe and smile. In stressful, anxious, tense and negative moments, #ThinkMagenta provides a very simple way to disperse the dark clouds. Stop what you are doing and calm down. Take a deep breath and exhale; even one breath is enough. Afterwards, immediately smile – smile in spite of everything.
Here are 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 simple headings:
- Let Global Wellness Day’s Manifesto be your compass in life.
- Walk for an hour.
- Drink more water.
- Don’t use plastic bottles.
- Eat healthy food.
- Do a good deed.
- Have a family dinner with your loved ones.
- Sleep at 10 pm.
- Use the right words.
- Simplify your life.
- Be open to different experiences.
- Share the goodness.
Ms. Aksoy sums up GWD’s 2022 theme reflecting with immense gratitude on how far GWD has come: “We were just a few people when we set out on a journey for Global Wellness Day. Today more than 350 million people around the world celebrate it. Even though Global Wellness Day 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 Global Wellness Day 365 days a year. From now on, as Global Wellness Day volunteers, we vow to be active every day of the year by focusing on the biggest problem of the world. As the first days of 2022 pass, we are here to change the way people think. Quite simply but in a very profound way… #ThinkMagenta.” Founded in 2012, GWD is an entirely not-for-profit day celebrated on the second Saturday of every June in over tens and thousands of locations around the world. All participatory activities are completely complimentary.
