Global Survey Reveals Profound “Wellbeing Dilemma”
Lululemon just released its annual Global Wellbeing Report, based on a survey of 14,000 people across 14 global markets. It sheds light on how people’s wellbeing has—or hasn’t—changed since 2021. Just a few of its many findings:
One out of three respondents report their wellbeing is lower than it has ever been. Although more than two-thirds ranked their wellbeing as a top priority, only 12% said they thought theirs was where it should be. A troubling paradox: the greater prioritization of wellbeing is not resulting in an improvement. Singapore, Korea and Thailand ranked highest for people feeling that maintaining their wellbeing was impossible. Caregivers, parents, the LGBTQIA community, and people living with disabilities were much more likely to report that their wellbeing was worse than ever before. Thirty percent don’t have the time to think about it and 51% are deprioritizing it due to cost concerns. People with high wellbeing are doing these things more than pre-pandemic: working out with others, prioritizing time with loved ones, and working to express all their emotions, not just positive ones.
