Global Wellness Day (GWD) Headquarter announced #ThinkMagenta as the theme of Global Wellness Day, which will be celebrated on Saturday June 11, 2022.

In 2022 Global Wellness Day will incorporate the theme by inviting people to #ThinkMagenta, recommending simple but effective affirmations, reminding people that living well begins in the mind. When you know where to look, there is a good side to even the toughest days. We want to spread the #ThinkMagenta philosophy within communities and beyond.

From Belgin Askoy, Founder of GWD

#ThinkMagenta is simple to do whether at home, in the office or outside. It all starts with three extremely easy steps – stop, breathe and smile. In stressful, anxious, tense and negative moments, #ThinkMagenta provides a very simple way to disperse the dark clouds. Stop what you are doing and calm down. Take a deep breath and exhale; even one breath is enough. Afterwards, immediately smile – smile in spite of everything.

Here are compiled a set of suggestions that encourages everyone to think positively, small recommendations that can make a substantial difference in everyone’s daily life, gathered under five simple headings:


• Let Global Wellness Day’s Manifesto be your compass in life.
• Walk for an hour.
• Drink more water.
• Don’t use plastic bottles.
• Eat healthy food.
• Do a good deed.
• Have a family dinner with your loved ones.
• Sleep at 10 pm.
• Use the right words.
• Simplify your life.
• Be open to different experiences.
• Share the goodness.


Founded in 2012, GWD is an entirely not-for-profit day celebrated on the second Saturday of every June in over tens and thousands of locations around the world. All participatory activities are completely complimentary. As a wellness movement that has brought the world together in an inspiring mission, Global Wellness Day continues to strengthen its influence with the support of TRH Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who have recognized GWD as one of 15 inspiring “Forces for Change” social responsibility projects; mega-celebrity, media mogul and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey; Turkish-American Cardiothoracic Surgeon and the host of The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Mehmet Oz; and many other Hollywood stars, A-list authors, world-renowned athletes, musicians, business executives and entrepreneurs, private companies, multi-national hotel corporations and governments.
