An interesting article that makes the point that most wellness apps lock us up in our private emotional experience rather than helping us connect with people. Every reputable piece of research in psychology now tells us that this is the wrong approach to well-being. The question is: will we continue to consume the thousands of well-being apps and the self-help industry in general (now a $1 billion a year business just in the United States) in the same quantity or is this segment of the industry potentially facing a big financial hit?
It was our pleasure to be involved in the Workplace Movement Evolution Forum by Blue Earth this month.
Blue Earth is a national health promotion charity on a mission to improve the health of all Australians and address the burden of disease that is associated with our increasingly sedentary lifestyles.
The focus of the forum was to promote movement and physical activity in the workplace, in particular standing vs sitting.
Our very own Executive General Manager, Mr Chris Rabba was invited to speak at the forum on workplace health worldwide trends and how to promote positive behaviour change using workplace wellness strategies & initiatives.
Technology today plays a vital roll in health.
We are seeing (more and more) the role of wearable devices and their positive impact on our health & wellbeing, not only by way of tracking things like steps and workouts, but monitoring vital biometrics.
This article highlights an example where a wearable device saved a man from having a heart attack.
