Wellness Moonshot: Learning can transform new behaviors into authentic wellness lifestyles
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LEARN? In the simplest terms, learning means embodying a new capacity to think and act. Consider, for example, that you want to eat a plant-forward diet to enhance your physical health and the health of the planet, like a third of the world’s population currently does. A good start may […]

A Wellness Experience: Careyes
Careyes, symbolized by the question mark that sits above the name, is an enigma to those who have yet to discover the 5000 acres of jungle, mangroves, beaches and cliffs spanning a 12 km stretch of Pacific coastline in the state of Jalisco. Alongside the question mark, an exclamation point symbolizes the wow factor guests and residents feel once they discover the essence of this eco-resort that pledges to limit development at 4% of the land, ensuring the preservation of this captivating environment and landscape.
We create healthier societies when we are inclusive
When it comes to leading wellness, as in our shared pursuit of a world free of preventable disease, being inclusive is perhaps one of our most powerful tools. An online search captures the spirit of the word: To INCLUDE means “to comprise as part of a whole” or “to make part of a whole.” Inclusive leaders do both. They help people and entire systems, from teams to communities, understand and connect with the ways they are already well, resourceful and resilient by nature. At the same time, inclusive leaders continually seek to uplift sidelined and disadvantaged voices so that our collective circle of concern widens and new potentials for wellbeing unfold.

GWI Wellness Moonshot: channel your intentions through your next move
As we touched on in an earlier Wellness Moonshot, movement is a biological drive as necessary as sleep or food, a natural medicine to stave off illness and disease and a vital source of empowerment for individuals and groups. As a wellness leader, you likely already know the science and strategies for using physical activity to elevate your daily life, family health, and the communities and organizations you serve. When we move, a host of mental, physical, emotional and social benefits arise, which helps us feel more energized, engaged, effective and alive.
Wellness Moonshot: How can we deliberately renew the mind, body and spirit – and help others do the same?
When it comes to renewing ourselves and others—an imperative during the global Coronavirus pandemic—we wellness leaders can learn a lot from the moon. This beautiful sphere, unifying us all, orbits the Earth in about a month. Each day it appears to grow larger (waxing) or smaller (waning), reminding us earthlings that there is a natural cycle to everything. This cycle offers time to redouble our efforts toward achieving our personal or shared wellness moonshot and time to reset our priorities and personally refresh.
Filter: make choices daily to promote health and wellbeing within circumstances that are constantly evolving
At some point, your path of being a wellness leader will get murky. Inviting your family members to eat healthier, encouraging your team to embrace gratitude, or motivating your workforce to integrate physical activity throughout the workday isn’t as straightforward as it may have seemed when you first began your journey.
Listening helps you identify hidden seeds of health, happiness, creativity, and growth
“In real ways, we are invited each day to slow down and listen. But why listen at all? Because listening stitches the world together. Because listening is the doorway to everything that matters.”— spiritual teacher Mark Nepo
