Millennials are said to be those people born between 1977 and 2000. Popular thought and conjecture from non-millennials does seem to be that this group consists of young, reckless teenagers but the reality is that this generation is in the maturing phase. In fact, according to MillennialMarketing.com, approximately one out of every four millennials is now a parent and 53% of millennial households have children. This represents a cohort of people who are in fact, hugely influential and have increased spending power but also a group of people who have many issues that worry and concern them.
They’re also well established into the workforce with many of them not only holding down one main job but also side hustles just to make ends meet. As a result, there is a huge draw on a daily basis on their time so they need to be quite organized with their time management.
Fitting in things like recreational activities including fitness and even a gym visit can really be a struggle when they have so many family and work commitments. They are, however, quite open about their worries and concerns and seek a job where management understands their needs. They rely on devices and apps to help them organize their activities and so it makes sense that they would also use their devices to ensure there is a focus on their health and wellness.
With so many apps released over the years, there are many that are a sheer waste of time. Some apps are of course free but many come with a one-time cost, a subscription cost or are an in-app cost model. Either way, some are so poor, they can actually add to the wasting of time and of course money too! Mental health and wellness are topics that they are truly open about but are things that they struggle with regularly and are always looking for ways to help them through their issues.
That help can come in the form of other personal/professional support or from resources they find online such as blogs, articles or wellness apps. Whatever their methods, it’s encouraging that they look for help and support elsewhere in order to move forward in a healthy way.
