A Healthier America in 2019

A Healthier America in 2019

Life Time, a healthy lifestyle company, recently surveyed individuals in 35 cities to uncover trends, habits and health needs as millions commit to positive health. If a healthier lifestyle is the goal of your New Year’s Resolutions, you’re not alone.

But a healthier lifestyle isn’t just about exercise and dieting. Americans are also looking to have a better balance in their lives, and to spend more time with family.

Highlights of the survey results include:

  • 63% of respondents noted that family time makes them the most happy, followed by 57% saying exercise and or yoga brings them the most happiness day to day. Who knew but sex and eating average 23% and 22% respectively on the happy scale.
  • 76% percent of respondents added that regular exercise makes them feel the healthiest, with 48% noting that eating healthy food makes them feel healthy. 26% responded that a balanced home and work schedule is what makes them feel the healthiest.
  • 94% of respondents noted a person should workout 3 or more times a week to be healthy with 56% responding four or more times. This is a staggering contrast to recent findings by the Center for Disease Control, which found that less than 23% of Americans get the recommended exercise weekly.
  • 50% of respondents noted that work caused them the most stress, followed by 35% noting family, 30% noting finances and 22% noting the political climate. When it came to stress relief, 46% noted cardio relieves the most stress for them, with group fitness and yoga somewhat tied at 36% and 34% respectively.

What would people give to lose 10 pounds? 28% of respondents said they would give up their smartphone while 17% said they would ditch work and 13% added they would give up sex.

The most likely New Year’s resolution of respondents? 57% noted a desire to improve overall well-being and mental health versus 46% of respondents who would like to lose weight/eat better.
