Wellness and Financial Security

For the past decades up until now, wellness as an industry have grown so much and have developed into several branches. An example would be nutrition or food where grocery items such as precooked meat, pasta, etc. are being labeled with their caloric value aside from the expiration date. This is to make consumers aware of the nutrition that they get when they consume a particular food. Some groceries even included color coding where a red label means it contains a high amount of a certain nutrient which is more than the needed percent daily intake. On the other hand, green emphasizes balanced nutrition content.

People today are being more cautious about their health since they are exposed about certain diseases which can be seen through hundreds of television commercials and radio announcements as well as from publications such as newspapers and magazines. Most of these ads are sponsored by large drug companies that aim to sell their products to the public. Also, the commodity that is being sold can cost a lot compared to other brands and even much more expensive when put against generic brands. Let us be honest and ask ourselves why do we need to purchase and consume these drugs? Obviously the answer is “for wellness”

Another branch of the wellness industry is fitness, which can be again divided into little sub-parts. Two main sub-categories are totally different from each other, but can be incorporated in terms of use. The first sub-part is sports nutrition wherein food and drinks are used to enhance the performance of the person. And the second part is physical activity where the person is exposed to exercises such as resistance training, yoga, Zumba and even bodybuilding.
