The Wellness MoonshotTM Calendar is the Global Wellness Institute’s call to action to create a culture of wellness within organizations and workplaces worldwide. The beautiful hanging calendar, designed by Jessica Jesse, CEO of BuDhaGirl, is a reminder to encourage conversations, programs and actions that support The Wellness MoonshotTM: A World Free of Preventable Disease. This worldwide initiative was created to help eradicate preventable, chronic diseases by advocating for multilevel collaboration among the too often siloed forces working to build a healthier world.

The calendar is inspired by the cycles of the full moon, the period of the lunar cycle said to emit the most vibrant energy, encouraging new ideas and habits. Organizations that commit to participating will receive the 2019 calendar along with tangible monthly ideas, tips and information to engage their employees around a particular wellness theme. For example, January focused on awareness, and February on creating a “well heart.”

The calendar was announced at the 2018 Global Wellness Summit where delegates pledged their support of The Wellness MoonshotTM: A World Free of Preventable Disease. Read More.
