Activating Inclusive & Holistic Well-being for All with NWI's 21-day W.E.L.L. Challenge | Bridgette Stewart, Kristi Leonard, & Kellie Straub


In summer 2022, the National Wellness Institute (NWI) launched an innovative 21-Day W.E.L.L. (Whole-person, Environment, Lifestyle, and Learning) Challenge program to help individuals around the world expand their understanding of NWI’s Six Dimensions of Wellness through a multicultural lens. This free offering was developed in collaboration with Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr., CEO & Founder of The Privilege Institute and creator of the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge, and students from the University of West Georgia. Learn how this self-guided, daily learning program took shape, what it has to offer participants, and how you can use it in a variety of personal and professional environments to activate inclusive and holistic well-being for all.

Following this session, participants will be able to:

  1. explain the origins and history of NWI’s 21-Day W.E.L.L. Challenge.
  2. describe how the 21-Day W.E.L.L. Challenge can be used to activate and enhance well-being around the world.
  3. implement successful challenge programs with individuals and organizations of all sizes using NWI’s 21-Day W.E.L.L. Challenge Professional Resources Toolkit.
