World Women’s Wellness Day – April 28, 2023

World Women’s Wellness Day takes place annually on the last Friday of April, which is April 28 this year. This is the ultimate guide to health and happiness — the first Women’s Wellness & Self Care virtual conference, from April 29 to 30, 2021, hosted by “Diversity Woman Media.” The unprecedented challenges women face balancing their careers and their lives as mothers, wives, daughters, and friends will undoubtedly affect their physical and mental health.

History of World Women’s Wellness Day

Diversity Woman Media is currently running a Wellness Wednesday series on health-related topics, including stress management, physical and mental wellbeing, sleep hygiene, nutrition, and mindfulness. Their audience comes from all over the world and is made up of every race, culture, and background. They are single or married, and they come together to share their stories and provide comfort to each other during hard times. They joined the conversation, seeking the hope that their wavering resilience needed.

World Women’s Wellness Day and its virtual conference are extensions of Diversity Woman Media’s Wellness Wednesdays, which provide information about self-care and other wellness issues. World Women’s Wellness Day is that day of the year when women are encouraged to make themselves a priority and focus on their health and wellbeing. The virtual conference will allow women to interact with leaders, specialists, and other resources that will help them reevaluate their lives and positively impact women’s wellness.

They want to empower women with the knowledge they need to be happier and healthier, giving them the tools they need to succeed in all facets of their lives. Their metaphor for dealing with difficult people is, “Put your mask on first.” Flight attendants tell us this when there’s trouble in the air. It shows us the importance of taking care of ourselves before we care for others. Women tend not to put their masks on first, leading to health and wealth issues. “Diversity Woman Media” wants to help women be the best they can be by showing them how to put their own needs first. The result will be happier mothers, wives, partners, employees, and people.
