AXA BetterMe Weekend featured a wide variety of elements, including physical and mental wellness, art care, and green lifestyle with a series of extraordinary activities.
This year's AXA BetterMe Weekend offered a wide variety of new elements - featuring physical and mental wellness, art care, and green lifestyle - to offer a truly unique and holistic wellness experience to people of all ages. Extraordinary activities included the exclusive "Art Care 4D Experience Zone", which is designed by renowned Japanese artist YOSHIROTTEN for AXA, free yoga and dance classes, handy craft workshops, colouring wall, metaverse experience, and special photo booths. Each is designed to encourage participants to relax and rejuvenate, while taking time out of the hustle and bustle to spend with family and friends.
Sally Wan, Chief Executive Officer, AXA Greater China said, "As pandemic drags on, people across the world have experienced mind health concerns. According to a study by the World Health Organisation, the loss of productivity as a result of depression and anxiety, costs the global economy USD 1 trillion every year. As an advocate of mental wellness, through this return of the AXA BetterMe Weekend and with our recently launched 'Make Time for Me-Time' campaign, we aim to encourage the public to take better self-care and become a BetterMe."
In the opening ceremony, AXA Brand Ambassador Sammi Cheng engaged in a stress-relieving art jamming session on stage, illustrating the light-hearted moment in her me-time and sharing her stress management tips. Sammi encouraged everyone to live healthily inside out and become a BetterMe.
Sammi Cheng, Brand Ambassador, AXA Hong Kong and Macau said, "The concept of "AXA BetterMe" has long resonated with my own belief. Being a celebrity, I always have to be at my best. In order to produce greater work and bring more joy to the audience, keeping myself in a healthy state body and mind is critical for me to keep going. I am therefore very pleased to be part of this meaningful AXA event, which injected positive energy to the community and encouraged everyone to be more conscious on their holistic wellness. Together, we can all become a BetterMe! "
