Healthy Lifestyles - Canada - June 2019
Covered in this report
For the most part, it can be said that Canadians take a fairly modest approach to health management. With the bulk of Canadians (66%) seeing their lifestyles as ‘somewhat healthy’ (see Perception of Overall Lifestyle) and only 35% who feel satisfied with their current wellbeing (see Satisfaction and Control of Wellbeing), there is an awareness that there’s more that can be done to
"Canadians have a realistic mindset when it comes to managing wellness as most don’t claim to be living ‘very healthy’ lifestyles, indicating an awareness that more can be done to be healthier. This isn’t to say that consumers are apathetic – they’re not. The majority of Canadians are not satisfied with their current wellbeing and worse, few feel in control of it. Time and responsibilities are top barriers to leading a healthy lifestyle, meaning that busy schedules are cutting into their ability to care for themselves, driving a need for solutions addressing health that are available for consumers when and where they are available. Despite the need for shortcuts, however, adoption of health tech remains low. Naturally, lifestage plays a big role in shaping how wellness is thought of and the challenges faced. Regardless of age, health management is not about making drastic changes for most consumers, so nudges and smaller steps will win the game. This Report explores consumer perceptions of their overall lifestyle, health concerns experienced, areas of wellness prioritized and the challenges preventing them from achieving their ideal level of wellness."
- Carol Wong-Li, Associate Director - Lifestyles & Leisure
