Global Women celebrate Wellness in London. Save the date 6th March and join us!

We have come a long way. More women are moving into leadership positions. We do need to celebrate. But there is more that needs to be done. The world needs no more super-women, but women still need super-powers to be heard and recognized for their true skills and beauties. Join us and get your voice heard at the next GW4W event in London supported by WellcomeCZ, hosted by Personal Touch Fitness. Everyone is welcome.
  For true gender equity, we need to recognize how our health and wellbeing is connected to our ability to lead and how those issues impact how we are seen as leaders. Despite women’s affinity groups and a lot of focus on mentoring women into more leadership positions, gender equity, including leadership equity, is going backwards, not forward ( World Economic Forum ). The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you’re very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble.” ~ Serena Williams Register now by clicking on the  invite  below and guarantee your place on March 6th: •...

Celosvětový den wellness se bude konat v sobotu 9. června. Zapojte se!

Každý rok se druhou sobotu v červnu mluví o wellness po celém světě. Koná se totiž celosvětový den wellness, který je zasvěcený "dobrému životu". Letos tomu nebude jinak, proto si v sobotu 9. června udělejte chvíli času pro sebe nebo své blízké, a udělejte si "dobro". Jak na to? O tom jsme se bavili v Dobrém ránu s Českou televizí.
Každý z nás by chtěl být zdravější, vypadat lépe nebo žít dobře fyzicky i duchovně. Životní pohoda je téměř celosvětově sdíleným snem. Vzhledem k tomu, že všechno, co je pro nás cenné, bylo oceněno zvláštním dnem, a proto vznik Global Wellness Day , celosvětový den wellness. Se sloganem „Jeden den může změnit celý tvůj život“, slavíme globální wellness den na druhou sobotu v červnu každý rok. Globální den zdraví je zcela neziskovou iniciativou. Jejím účelem je vám položit otázku: „Jak můžete žít zdravější a lepší život?“ a motivovat vás k tomu, abyste ten zdravější život zkusili žít, i když třeba jen na jeden den. V sobotu ale nemusíte hned vyrazit do wellness centra....

It is mid-December, a dark and cold winter evening. A group of 30 youth workers from all across Europe gather in an educational center in the middle of a Czech forest. They sit on chairs in a circle, silently they are thinking: What do I need to fully arrive here? What do I want to carry with me when I leave? What is this Well-ness? Where is the nearest restroom? They are at the beginning of The Game of Wellness, a 7-days Erasmus+ training for trainers. In this article, I will share with you how our training team introduced them to the essence of wellness through experiential training that combined the best of wellness, principles of gamification and non-formal teaching methods - inspiring them to do things like – adopting dogs, building their own standing desks or designing their own trainings. In short - some magic happened there.
What do you envision when you imagine the worst-case youth worker? When designing the Game of Wellness, we imagined a burnt-out person who works with great passion at the start of their career, but slowly loses the energy one day after another. Common issues being: Work-life non-balance (because when you work with passion, you don’t/shouldn’t care about long working hours, right?); low social and financial recognition (because nobody truly knows what you work on and you can never show a tangible product of your work - you are just playing with kids): a work task that can possibly never be accomplished (when can you be done with making this world a better place, making youth better...

Promoting wellness in new times: using digital media and marketing strategy to reach new audiences

Digital media are often blamed for the sedentary behavior and unhealthy lives of so many and yes, people are spending more time sitting by their computers. Yet, they still want to be healthy and happy, so we need to talk to them the way they process information today – through their computers.
While the word “wellness” has become part of our vocabulary, there are still many people the world over to whom this term remains unknown or unclear . These people comprise a new audience for us to communicate the meaning of wellness, its benefits, and its proven practices that lead to healthier and more satisfying lives. New times, new media, new possibilities We also live in the digital age, a transformative time that is often blamed for the sedentary behavior and unhealthy lives of so many.

The Two Faces of Wellness in the Heart of Europe, in the Hearts of People from the Czech Republic

Due to its location in the very center of the old continent, the Czech Republic is often called the Heart of Europe. In this article I would like to introduce you to the two faces of wellness in my country. One is the wellness that calls itself wellness and then there is the other wellness that doesn’t know it is wellness - wellness that is hidden in the hearts of Czech people.
Let´s start with the first case: Wellness that calls itself wellness In Europe there is a long spa tradition and the Czech Republic is no exception. As Czech borders opened 25 years ago, many modern trends have emerged in the country, and as wellness was one of them it naturally found its place in the spa resorts. Unfortunately there was no one to explain what the word wellness really meant so it became a marketing label for many things. Czech wellness follows a similar pattern as wellness in Germany, as described by Lutz Hertel . The word “wellness” has become a synonym for a type of service or a place where you go to feel better (so called wellness centers). Many spa resorts...

What do Americans expect when they enter a wellness center? (I asked the pros)

To clarify the wellness center: in Europe wellness happens in wellness centers, which is mostly a spa with several fitness machines. Those centers focus mainly on the services and procedures to offer and for many people wellness center is a place where you go and the good things (procedures) happen to you and at the end you feel better. What are American wellness centers like? Does American wellness even happen in a wellness center? We asked leading experts in the wellness field:
Alida Moonen - wellness coordinator at Summa Health System First, a question for you: What is a wellness center? Here in the US, virtually every “fitness” center has now become a “wellness” center. Spas are now “wellness” centers. Health systems (hospitals) are now “wellness” systems. Holistic practitioners do so in “wellness” centers.  So, what do Americans expect when they enter one of these places? Solutions to a problem that they probably created themselves by making health and lifestyle decisions that led to the need for solutions. What do they find? Tools and resources and skill sets that they should then apply to their lives so that they can achieve wellness. They don’t...

Opportunities and threats of global wellness: A lesson from the Czech Republic

Wellness in the 21st century is truly a great chance for people and businesses from all around the world to thrive, but the global interest brings both opportunities and threads. In many languages there is no synonym or translation of the word “wellness” in the dictionary, and basically nobody provides an explanation or a definition to it. Due to this international lack of meaning, today’s wellness faces the risk of being everything and nothing, or just another buzz word.
All humans share the basic need of living a healthy, quality and satisfying life, but the application is very different in India, United States or Czech Republic. International wellness should accept the whole spectrum of wellness realities from the point that we can learn from one another, but especially when applying somebody else’s approach, we have to be able to distinguish between the general transferable truth and its cultural background. The wellness in the Czech Republic follows the European tradition of spa and medical services, and the trend can be traced globally according to the Global Spa and Wellness Summit, that labels it as the wellness tourism . As a matter of...
