Lululemon released its first study dedicated to global wellness this week, and only 29% of participants reported having a strong sense of physical, mental and social wellbeing.

“There is little doubt that the challenges of the last year have taken a toll on people’s psyches and underscored the importance of our collective health and wellbeing,” said Lululemon CEO Calvin McDonald. “And while many of us often say ‘everything is fine,’ it’s clear that we would all benefit from raising the bar for what it means to truly be well.” 

The survey found that physical activity was the greatest differentiator between people who were coping well with the pandemic and those who were not. Eating healthy food and getting enough sleep were the next most important factors for personal wellbeing.

The survey, which included 10,000 people across 10 countries, found that Gen Z has been especially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, with teens and young adults in the demographic being the least likely to have taken steps like exercising and spending time outdoors to boost wellness. 

A separate study by insurance company The Standard near the end of last year found that 46% of U.S. workers say they’ve struggled with mental health issues since the pandemic began, up from 39% the year before.
