ResortSuite is proud to announce that Founder and CEO, Frank Pitsikalis, has again been selected as one of two Canadian Ambassadors for Global Wellness Day 2016.
Global Wellness Day, which will be celebrated on June 11th in 2016, launched in Turkey in 2012 and is an entirely not-for-profit day, a social project created by volunteers dedicated to living well. Today it has become an international movement and was officially celebrated in 73 countries in 2015, a reflection of its growing success. With world-renowned health, lifestyle and fitness gurus lending their voices to the platform, the campaign inspires to spread awareness and educate the masses on the importance of nutrition, exercise and living well.
GWD’s international network of over 70 Global Wellness Day Ambassadors report that they are on target to have over 3,000 properties & locations in 100 countries organize complimentary wellness activities like yoga/Pilates/dance workshops; breathing & mindfulness sessions and nutrition & beauty classes to help millions realize that "One day can change your whole life."
Setting aside the second Saturday of June to provide complimentary, educational and experiential wellness activities to the public to promote good physical and mental health was the brainchild of Belgin Aksoy, owner of Turkey’s only destination spa and herself a cancer survivor.
“Living well is the simple necessity for every human being on the planet,” explains Aksoy. “To overcome the global problems such as depression and lead a healthier and happier life, we need an inspiring beginning. The name of that beginning is Global Wellness Day.”
As a Canadian GWD Ambassador, Frank Pitsikalis is honoured to build on the momentum of GWD.
“In a time where life is moving at a record pace, the Global Wellness Day movement has never been more important,” said Pitsikalis. “We all know how easy it is to forget even the simplest measures that bring balance into our lives. If we can use this day to remind people, perhaps we can inspire them to live a little more consciously and turn living well into a way of life.”
