Celebrate International Mind-Body Wellness Day with Jockey!

International Mind-Body Wellness Day falls on January 3rd, 2022 - aptly timed at the beginning of the year when most of us plan to prioritize our health and wellness. The celebration also adds as a reminder to slow down, listen and tend to the health of our mind and body.

First celebrated in 2012, this day is now observed in more than 150 countries. Events like marathons, virtual conferences, etc., are hosted to bring together people from different parts of the world, to connect, share and discuss wellness on a holistic level.

So, if you are planning to start the year by making wellness a priority in your life, here are a few from us to get you started –

Undisturbed Sleep

While it may appear to be the easiest thing to do on the list, you will be surprised to know that many people find it difficult to get sufficient sleep every night. In fact, the percentage of insomnia in India is as high as 33% among adults . Sleep deprivation can result in various harmful effects on both mind and body, such as lethargy, brain fog, physical exhaustion and inability to concentrate. So, in case you are feeling anxious or tired, make sure that in the coming year, you give yourself 7-9 hours of sleep without any interruptions. Use sleep apps that help you calm your mind & help you go to sleep easily.

It is also important to wear the right clothes that let you rest comfortably without hurting, poking, or irritating your skin.

Regular Exercise

Physical exercise is great for the body, but also the mind. It releases “feel-good” hormones, also known as serotonin, and blocks negative thoughts, making you feel happier and healthier. However, remember, physical exercise isn’t restricted only to gym activities or running a 5K marathon. You can indulge in various other activities like yoga, hiking, cycling, skipping or even walking. If you like to participate in an exercise that doesn’t feel like hard work, you can try Zumba too. Whatever, you do, just keep moving! And don’t forget to choose the right activewear.


Our mind and body are like two weighing plates of a physical balance. It’s hard to strike the right equilibrium, but it’s not impossible. Meditation is considered to be the most powerful tool that can help in restoring this balance. It also gives you a chance to experience a state of restful awareness, where your body achieves deep rest and your mind gains greater awareness. Yes, it may sound intimidating, but with practice and consistency, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of meditation. While practicing, it is advisable to wear clothes that feel soft on the skin and allow maximum freedom.

Release Stress

While exercising regularly is a great way to release stress, there are a few cerebral ways too. Activities like painting, listening or playing music, baking, etc. are proven to be therapeutic and can help you work through stress. You do not have to be proficient in these activities because it’s more about expressing yourself than anything else. Besides, who knows? You may find something you truly love and enjoy doing. Oh, and don’t forget to wear the right clothes so as to truly enjoy these activities.


It is important to take a few hours in a day or a week to simply rest. It doesn’t have to be productive. You just need to give your body and mind complete rest. Now, this can mean different things to different people. For example, if you are an extrovert, your “me-time” can mean brunch with friends, or a late-night movie, while an introvert may choose to spend time reading, playing video games or enjoying a few hours alone. No matter how it looks like, remember to recharge yourself every once in a while, in clothes that “know you”!

The above-mentioned suggestions will not only help you celebrate International Mind-Body Wellness Day this year, but also inspire you to bring a change in your life and lead a healthy lifestyle. So, let’s make this day and the coming year count, shall we?
