Do you ever feel like you’re merely going through the motions of life? Like you’re stuck in a monotonous nine to five job, seven days a week to have two days of “rest”, usually spent doing jobs, attending obligatory events and drinking too much?
If your answer is yes, chances are you’ve never been to an inspirational conference and perhaps it’s time. Time to invest in yourself at the Coachella of the health world, The Wellness Festival.
If you’ve never heard of The Wellness Festival, rid your mind of a henna-drawing, hula-hoop dancing séance. Instead picture yourself sipping on a coconut, listening to six of Australia’s most successful women share their advice for success, tasting the best of Melbourne’s food scene and treating yourself to the most on-trend fashion and beauty products.
Aside from being a great day out, The Wellness Festival will nurture and inspire you to lead a more wholesome life, focusing on a range of aspects including health, wellness, self-love, wealth, career and relationships.
Feel like you’re lacking a little oomph or direction? Here are three reasons The Wellness Festival may be just what you need.
