Purpose & Solidarity

The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why

- Mark Twain
Illustration purpose

Did you find your reason?

We are all here for a reason. On this planet. Did you find your reason?
Some people wake up to an alarm clock, some rise to a calling.

Some mornings, you may feel that there’s something deeper you could be a part of. You feel the pull towards bigger things but you can’t exactly pin it down—and that makes you nervous and frustrates you.
“What is my purpose in life?” You may wonder.

The best way to find your purpose in life is through self-mirror, the art of introspection. Digging deep into your being and pulling out to the light all the puzzles that are in you.

Never underestimate the power of curiosity. A craving to know and learn, curiosity ignites your mind, compelling it to wake up.

When you put your heart into what you do, and especially what you do for others , you can unleash your potential to accomplish inconceivable things. You become open to the possibility of your purpose.

Sleep Well, Be well

According to Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi “when you think that your life has a meaning, when you are deeply focused on what you are doing, you do not exist anymore, only the task to accomplish exists”. That is what he calls a state of flow. This state is close to what a musician feels when the music freely flows out of them. It is also close to an active meditation. In a state of flow, we forget ourselves and our surroundings. When we have a strong sense of purpose, we are more likely to experience a state of flow more often.

Curious individuals ask questions, look for answers, wonder how things work and attempt new ways to deal with old issues.
It means analyzing a situation with open-minded perspectives bringing an imaginative and creative solution.

We hope that World Wellness Weekend will help you identify an association in your community, a charity or a social activity where you can serve, close to home on September 21-22 as a first step, opening a door for a big dig, and possibly a regular commitment.

What did you loved doing when you were a kid?

Remember the happiness of doing things for the fun of it? No rewards, not impressing anyone, just for yourself.

What makes you forget that you have to eat?

When are you are so present in an activity that time passes without you realizing? Psychologist call this the Flow

In partnership with the United Nations Global Sustainability Index Institute, World Wellness Weekend is helping implement the 3rd Sustainable Development Goal (SDG): Good Health & Well-being. There are 16 other goals to achieve, where you may find your calling, your purpose in life: no poverty, no hunger, clean oceans

The time that we spend on Earth in this life is not the most important.
What really matters is how we decide to spend each day.
