And what’s new?
Wellness 2030: Using technology to find happiness.
During the 20th century, health and wellness formed an integral part of clinical medicine. The aim was to rectify faults and defects, not least for the purpose of remaining effective on the employment market. Today, the main focus is on preventative wellness consumption. Consumers no longer wish to simply follow the instructions of doctors and other experts, but also to develop their own skills themselves. After all, the most important health decisions are being taken less and less at the doctor’s or in the chemist, but rather in the supermarket during regular shopping. Step by step, we are becoming aware of how we can use new technologies to increase our potential and to hear, see, and learn more quickly, thereby improving ourselves.
