Resetting the World with Wellness

“Since making its entry onto the world stage, COVID-19 has dramatically torn up the script of how to govern countries, live with others and take part in the global economy,” COVID-19: The Great Reset

While there has been enormous devastation, disruption and suffering that the pandemic has created globally, the power of human beings lies in our foresight, ingenuity and ability to create changes for a more inclusive, resilient and sustainable world.

We as individuals, can—to a certain extent—take our destiny and our health into our own hands and plan for a better future. Wellness is the way forward.


Wellness Is More Than A Buzzword

Today, an internet search for the term “wellness” yields over 1.5 trillion hits. There’s wellness travel, wellness tech, wellness foods, wellness real estate, wellness workplaces and more. The sheer volume of the term’s usage begs the obvious:  What does wellness really mean? While it  came into use the mid-17th century to express the opposite of illness, in the mid-20th century—1946 to be exact—it got a far broader definition from the World Health Organization:  “a state of physical, mental and social wellbeing—not merely the absence of disease.”

Wellness is a significant concept that offers us clear direction for how we should live today—holistically. Only then can we achieve physical, mental and social wellbeing.


Why Wellness?
It Applies to Everything We Do

The Global Wellness Institute attributes 90% of our health outcomes to our homes, communities, workplaces and surrounding environment. Wellness must become critical part of all aspects of our lives, including every organization’s agenda, especially since wellness is twofold for all organizations. Not only must we create workplaces that sustain and nurture our team members, we must offer products and services that support our customers and clients.


Who Should Invest in Wellness?

Given the rapidly growing trajectory and relevance wellness has to our collective wellbeing, purpose-driven wellness must be a priority in every project and for every leader:

  • Companies and hospitality groups must integrate wellness internally for employees and team members—and externally for their customers, clients and guests.
  • Developers must build communities and projects that enable wellness across the live-work-play environments they create.
  • Philanthropic organizations must search for partners who can increase and foster wellness for the populations they serve.
