People say they want to live a healthy lifestyle, but only a third of Americans are satisfied with their wellness, new research finds. According to a survey of 2-thousand U.S. adults, two in three think there’s room for improvement in terms of their wellness.
The poll also reveals:
- Caring for their well-being is a priority for 70% of respondents and a similar number (67%) say the same about living a “balanced life.”
- Top priorities for achieving a balanced lifestyle include being more conscious about what their body wants and needs (73%), drinking alcohol in moderation (46%), spending more time outdoors (45%) and creating routines and habits to stay on track (41%).
- Just over three-quarters (78%) say they understand that these goals won’t happen without drastic changes to their current lifestyle.
- For a successful wellness journey, people say they’ll need willpower (48%), perseverance (47%) consistency (42%) and support from other people (33%).
- More than a third (37%) would be open-minded about a trend that’s recommended by a celebrity and 31% would be open to one suggested by trusted people in their life.
- Even though changes can be hard work, respondents say the effort is worth it because it helps them feel organized (58%) and focused (56%) and once they see the changes happening, they feel accomplished (56%).
- Nearly half of those surveyed say they’d try “mindful drinking” (46%) in order to reach their wellness goals.
