Wellness is the cornerstone of a life of quality. It determines how we ultimately look, feel, interact with others and thrive in life and work. According to the World Health Organization, wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Living a healthy and wellness-focused lifestyle in our fast-changing world can be a challenge. However, the landscape is changing as more individuals are becoming more proactive about living a healthier lifestyle, and more are also seeking alternative and holistic care for ailments.
What is the Eko Wellness Fair?
Eko Wellness is a movement of allied wellness product businesses that offer a variety of nutritious food, wellness products and services that promote healthy living. They promote healthy living by making wellness accessible to the public. From helping you connect the dots that your daily lifestyle influences your health to creating easier access to products and services that will help you stay well.
The Eko Wellness Fair started as a healthy food fair in March 2015 with 10 participating brands. It has grown into an annual community event that connects holistic practitioners and wellness product providers domiciled in Nigeria with the Nigerian public. The fair allows health-conscious enthusiasts to discover and experience locally available wellness products and services through this platform. Fair visitors also get the opportunity to interact freely with locally-based and accessible wellness practitioners, take part in workshops whilst picking up strategies that help improve their quality of life. The platform also serves as a growing ecosystem for holistic practitioners, preventative health services and products within Nigeria and other African countries.
We are proud to be partnering with the Eko Wellness team to bring you the 6th Edition, which has been themed – “My Mental Health Matters: For Our Collective Productivity”. It will run from the 1st of May to the 7th of May and will be a virtual fair to make it safe for all participants. You can register for the virtual fair here.
