Activated Life is the brainchild of Parveen Panwar. During his entrepreneurial years, Parveen like so many others found himself absorbed into a group of driven entrepreneurs who were consumed by talks of activating venture funds, bank accounts, business ventures, and other material-driven entities. However, as he traveled deeper down this pathway along with them, he began to become painfully aware of the lack of personal development, authentic relationships, empathy, unselfish empowerment, inner peace, and mental & physical wellness caused by the lifestyles that he and his peers lead.
These days lifestyles are full of burnout, stress, depression and anxiety. People are not paying attention to their overall wellness specially mental health, not sleeping well, consuming excessive drugs and alcohol to escape from the madness of daily misery. We have become a quick-fix society and have forgotten long term perspective.
This is where the word “Activated” helped him see clearly the importance of the true Awakening of society. We all must wake up and pay attention to what’s truly important! A change from within is the fuel for positive change on the outside and with that, he created a set of principles and guidelines to start leading such a life.
In the beginning, the informal programming of Activated Life consisted of hosting several entrepreneur retreats that gathered an average of 40 entrepreneurs across both the early-stages and late-stages of development. Attendance would also include a handful of corporate leaders as well proving that the awareness of a need for an Activated Life extended from entrepreneurs to communities. During these small meetings, the philosophy of the Activated Life developed, refined, and matured into a global vision to improve the mental health and overall wellbeing of individuals facing health challenges.
Most of us would rather be happy than sad, fulfilled than depressed, uplifted than brought down. In other words, we want to be Activated! That boost of energy you feel when you’re filled with life… The passion you bring to special projects and events… The adrenaline rush of positivity and empowerment…This meaningful, fulfilled life embodied with authentic connections, greater purpose, filled with inspiration, love for the world and our overall well-being(spiritual, emotional, social, physical and mental) is what we call an “Activated Life”
