Says World Wellness Weekend founder, Jean-Guy De Gabriac: “Today, more than ever, health and wellness for all are a priority. Coronavirus is not only a pandemic, with an economic recession lurking, it is also a reminder that being well and healthy should our #1 priority to focus on proactive prevention to strengthening our immune system with rest, wiser choices in nutrition, physical exercise and R&R for our busy minds.”
Newly appointed World Wellness Weekend Ambassador in Cape Town, Taryn Lilley, the spa manager at Cape Grace, adds: “Being a World Wellness Weekend Ambassador, it is my goal to reach as many health professionals as possible to spread the importance of the 5 Pillars of Wellness and to get everyone involved in celebrating this weekend of wellness globally.
“We are all going through challenging times and it is easy to get caught up in the negatives. Therefore, we need to try to focus on the things that we can control, like our thoughts, our health and our attitude or mindset. I am looking forward to growing this initiative in South Africa and can’t wait to see all the exciting events that everyone has planned for it.”
