Report Summary

The cost of living crisis has exacerbated existing health inequality. Day-to-day financial health is difficult to entangle from mental and physical health and socio-economic factors significantly impact how, and if, someone can effectively manage their health. The pressure of the last couple of years has also pushed health further down the priority list for consumers in the most vulnerable situations.

Consumers have a wide range of motivations to be healthy, above all is to feel fit, happy and prevent future health issues. The positive impact of behaviours, such as spending time with loved ones and improving work/life balance, on health is increasingly being recognised too. This holistic approach to health management opens up opportunity for brands, across various sectors, to be involved in the pursuit of wellness.
