1.25.18: Millennials – Entitled to Health
Your folks may think that a Netflix and chill lifestyle may be killing you slowly.
We have binge watching, Hygge nesting, nap queens on Instagram. But the reality is that Millennials work out more than their Gen X and Boomer predecessors – 76% weekly compared to 70% and 64% respectively. Goldman Sachs says that Millennials work out on the daily – usually with the goal of participating in a competition like Tough Mudder or a 10K. We exercise more, eat cleaner and smoke less. We use apps to track workout data and to find the healthiest recipes and restaurants. Millennials are more likely to report that exercising – even something as basic as walking – reduces stress levels. Not to mention, our generation is so comfortable using tech in our everyday lives, that firing up a fitness app or calorie counter is second nature.
Apps like Flashfit can help you effortlessly integrate activity into your hectic day. This fun-to-use app provides aerobic and strength-building exercises in one-minute bursts that you can do anywhere. No special equipment needed – just your phone and positive vibes.
