The Five Pillars of Health: Our health & wellness white paper for the Good Life app

Whitepaper 5 Pillarsof Health Whitepaper

We’re all living longer thanks to medical advances. But, while global life expectancy has increased, these extra years aren’t necessarily healthy ones. This World Health Day, we publish The Five Pillars of Health: a white paper exploring key aspects of health & wellness for our app Good Life.

Discover the risks, benefits and simple action points you can take to improve your health by focusing on physical activity, sleep habits, mental health, social health and nutrition.

Small steps make a big difference

Although it can seem overwhelming, just small changes to our lifestyle habits can make big differences to our health. Simple goals such as an extra 1,000 steps a day, a regular bedtime and even a chat with your friends can boost your long-term wellbeing. Different areas of our health are interlinked, so improve one and it’ll have benefits for other areas too.

Some diseases and conditions are unavoidable but the root of many chronic health issues, particularly non-communicable diseases, can be found in poor lifestyle behaviours such as a lack of exercise or a bad diet. Globally, we are seeing rising numbers for serious health conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.

It’s something which is reflected in our digital health solutions, which are based around the five pillars of health – physical activity, sleep habits, mental health, social health, and nutrition.

To celebrate World Health Day, we also spoke to people on the streets of New York City to learn what Good Health means to them. Here's what they told us...
