Take the “WWW Wellness Pledge”

World Wellness Weekend / Take the “WWW Wellness Pledge”

Wellness starts with “WE”, not “ME”.

 

World Wellness Weekend creates massive ripple effects to positively impact the lives of millions of people, near and far. You too can contribute to a WELL WORLD by taking the WWW Wellness Pledge:

  1. Decide on your personal wellness objective (e.g. reach your ideal weight, be more active more often, be more flexible to prevent back pain, manage stress better…)
  2. Ask one of your friends or colleagues to become your Wellness Buddy (e.g. attend regular fitness or yoga classes, walk or run together…)
  3. Each week, put some money in a « wellness jar » or a piggy bank (e.g. the equivalent value of sugary snacks you manage not to buy & eat, or cigarettes you succeeded not to buy & smoke.) On World Wellness Weekend comes (18-19 September 2021) you will celebrate the achievement of your personal goal. See how much money you have put aside, and decide to donate it to a local charity or a NGO of your choice.

With each WWW Wellness Pledge, two wellness buddies will be able to reach their personal wellness objectives, and the money they will save will be donated to people who lack everything : health, clean water, food, education…

Each of us can upgrade our personal lifestyle and become a better version of ourselves, and also touch positively many lives. For instance, 10 USD may buy a pack of sugary snacks or a pack of cigarettes… most importantly, it can feed & school a child in Calcutta for 2 weeks!
