Should brands be doing things differently when it comes to promoting healthy lifestyles?

I’m all for brands stepping up in the wellness game.

Wellness isn’t just about slapping a fancy claim on a product and calling it a day. It’s about making a genuine difference in people’s lives. It’s about fostering healthier habits, promoting self-care, and nurturing overall well-being — physical, mental, social, and purpose-driven wellness. It’s just as applicable to a yoga brand as it to a Bank, people need financial wellness too. But only 46% of people feel like brands are actually helping them prioritise their wellness.
