If there’s one thing that we learned from 2020, it’s the importance of good health.
People around the world are now much more aware of the need to manage health intelligently, and there’s an increasing trend in individuals taking proactive measures to protect themselves and their families.
We all know that good health is vital to human happiness. Consequently, it is our medical health that is often the first to be neglected. These days, it seems everyone has endless tasks and finite hours to eat right, exercise, and keep up-to-date with the demands of work, family and friends. Like you, we know managing the overall health of your family is no simple task. Sadly, illnesses and conditions do not go away as we get busier – if anything, neglecting ailments only serves to escalate pre-existing medical conditions.
Taking care of our mental and emotional health is another vital area often overlooked. Globally there is a surge in mental health cases due to a tumultuous year at the hands of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Coronavirus global pandemic has resulted in an increased demand for mental health services. The WHO also found many people have increased their levels of alcohol and drug use, insomnia, and anxiety (World Health Organisation, 2020). The Australian Department of Health has reemphasised that prioritising our mental well being is a vital component in maintaining our health (Australian Government Department of Health, 2020).
