The entire world is just a touch away from the fashion-forward curious millennials of today. From sliding into DM’s, to gauging over “taste made” videos & undulating to the latest Ariana Grande songs, they surely have it all in terms of awareness and accessibility. However, even with the world being just a touch away, there are a lot of fitness myths floating around.
Facts every millennial must know about Fitness
Fitness is not just living a healthy, fulfilling, and enriching life, it also means balancing your inner and outer world. Fitness helps you to channel your energies from the inside to the outside. Here are some facts every millennial ought to know!
1. Fitness helps you improve relationships: What? Stunned? Yes, exercise precipitates changes in your metabolism, which helps you combat pressure/stress and even depression. It makes you feel happier, livelier, and lighter. It helps you to have a more positive outlook toward, people, situations, and relationships. So rather than spending hours on the phone and bleating over vivid relationship problems, I guess it’s time to get out of our homes!
2. Get brainy!: Exercise enhances energy levels and increases serotonin in the brain. This helps us achieve mental stillness and improves brain activity. It fosters smoother functioning of the brain cells. In a world where your personality is defined by social media accounts, it has become even more imperative to be the smart one in the room, right?
3. Some fitness a day keeps the doctor away: We live in a technologically advancing & blossoming world that is amazing, but with all the perks, there also comes cut-throat competition & the incessant need and want to be better than others. The stress, the pressure, the submissions & the deadlines can prove to be a symbolic hindrance, causing us to take a step back from our focus and goal. Fitness helps pump the heart and make it stronger to combat unbidden diseases.
4. Fitness helps increase your life span: People who are physically active for approximately seven hours a week are 40% less likely of dying early than people who are only active for less than 30 minutes a week. Fitness can help you live a while longer, and who doesn’t want that I mean?
5. Fitness helps you sleep. The new age-old millennial issue!: Even when we go to bed at 11 PM, we can never really sleep, right? The vices of modern life (memes, trolls, and IG updates) are too strong for us to let loose our consciousness & just sleep. Regular physical exercise helps you to sleep peacefully without restlessly shuttling between your phone to laptop till 2 AM at night.
Know more about Millennial
Before discussing more millennials, let’s go through the basics like what is millennials. Who are millennials? And what birth years are millennials?
The term “millennial” refers to a generation of people who were born between the early 1980s and the mid-1990s. The idea that this generation entered adulthood at the beginning of the twenty-first century, or the new millennium, is where the term “millennial” originates.
Millennials grew up amid a period of fast technological advancement, including the rise of the internet, cell phones, and social media. They experienced big worldwide occurrences including the 9/11 attacks, the Great Recession, and the rise in significance of topics like social justice and climate change.
Habits of Millennials
1. Prioritize fitness: Compared to earlier generations, millennials have shown a stronger emphasis on health and fitness. They emphasize their physical health and make an effort to lead active lifestyles by frequently participating in exercises, yoga, meditation, aerobics, etc. They lay great value on overall wellness and understand how important it is to stay active.
2. Prefer discounts and rewards: It’s both fortunate and unfortunate that this generation was born in times of financial hardship and economic instability. They consequently have a tendency to be more cost-aware and look for deals and rewards while making purchases. Before making a purchase, they are more likely to use coupons, look for sales, and check costs online. Incentives that correlate with millennial’s quest for value and cost savings, such as discounts, freebies, or access to exclusive benefits, make loyalty programs and rewards systems popular with this generation.
3. Check reviews: Because they have easy access to social media and internet platforms, millennials have made it a practice to read customer evaluations before making a purchase. Millennials value real user experiences and look for product reviews, ratings, and endorsements to learn more about the performance, dependability, and quality of a good or service. They prefer making well-informed decisions based on the experiences of others and believe in the value of collective wisdom.
4. Consult nutritionists: They are more concerned about their health than earlier generations were, and they frequently consult professionals to help them make nutritional decisions. Many millennials seek out nutritionists or dieticians for individualized advice on their diet and way of life. They are prepared to spend time and money to learn about their nutritional requirements, investigate specialty diets (such as vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free options), and make knowledgeable food judgments. They are committed to leading a balanced, healthy lifestyle, therefore seeking professional advice is in line with that.
