Global Wellness Institute Launches Next Phase of The Wellness Moonshot: A World Free of Preventable Disease

The non-profit’s campaign will provide organizations worldwide with The Wellness Moonshot Calendar and monthly ideas and information to create a healthier culture at work,

Collectively, we are in a wellbeing crisis. The ways that we live and work are too often designed for unwellness rather than to help us be more healthy and vital.

Your participation in The Wellness Moonshot: A World Free of Preventable Disease is the first step toward making wellness a priority in your community.

“We know that The Wellness Moonshot Calendar can have an exponentially growing impact: our goal is to get the leaders of hundreds of thousands of organizations to commit to healthier work cultures, and they can then in turn impact the employees they supervise in a meaningful way,” noted Susie Ellis, GWI chairman and CEO. “We want to give every organization—large or small—a monthly roadmap for meaningful change, because the beauty of this program is that anyone within any company or community can implement The Wellness Moonshot Calendar and impact their circle of influence.”

The Wellness Moonshot Calendar theme for February is Include.

Tip #1 for including wellness in all aspects in your life: Start where you are and do an honest inventory of your day-to-day. Pay attention to what’s happening in all areas—including at work. Ask yourself, “At this phase of my life, which dimensions am I caring for and which need more attention?”

January’s Wellness Moonshot Calendar theme was “Emerge.” – In our increasingly complex and oftentimes bewildering world, it is time for each of us to step forward as wellness leaders, not only in our own lives but for our families, workplaces and communities. 2020 is the year to join together as a global force and lead wellness wherever we are.
