According to many studies, depression is the most common health problem throughout the world. The problem often manifests itself in sleep deprivation, stress, poor nutrition, inactivity, obesity, heart disease and more. To overcome this problem and lead a healthier and happier life, we need an inspiring beginning. The name of that beginning is Global Wellness Day. Global Wellness Day is celebrated every second Saturday of June, next year we will celebrate it on June 11th. View our activities and tasks below.
