HCM CITY — A range of wellness activities will be held as part of the Global Wellness Day Vietnam, which will begin on June 12, aiming to help people achieve the goal of healthy living and wholesome happiness.
Speaking at a Wellness Dinner last weekend in HCM City, Henri Hubert, ambassador of the Global Wellness Day Vietnam, said living well is a process of awareness and the effort to act accordingly in everyday life.
“Healthy living comes from the way you think positively, understand yourself, and keep a balance between your mental and physical state under all circumstances.”
“I wanted to inspire and encourage people to form good habits to exercise health and thereby build a better life,” he told Việt Nam News.
“I believe true beauty comes from the harmony between the body and the mind,” he added.
The wellness dinner was held part of this year’s Global Wellness Day Vietnam activities, which included physical training sessions and environmental action with youth.
“It is vital to choose safe, nutritious food for family meals, spend time with loved ones, and enjoy happy moments,” he said.
With the slogan “One day can change your life”, the event conveys the message: “When you spend an entire day pausing the cycle of work, getting rid of stress, getting rid of bad habits, thinking about your health and enjoying life, you will find inner peace, not only for today but for the remaining 364 days of the year.”
First organised in 2012 in Turkey, the Global Wellness Day has spread to more than 110 countries and territories around the world. The non-profit programme is organised on the second Saturday of June every year. VNS
