WELLNESS in Covid19 Times
Some of the largest industries that have been forced to adapt to the new status quo are the wellness and fitness industries. Since gym-goers and workout enthusiasts are no longer able to step foot in a gym, instructors are now challenged with a new obstacle: creating engaging and effective workouts that can be done in front of a computer screen at home. So far, we’ve seen that many fitness instructors have taken on the challenge head-on and have evolved their practice in order to meet up with this new demand. In fact, all professionals in the wellness industry have seen a shift in their daily practices. Yoga instructors, gym coaches, and even psychologists have all been forced to meet the changing needs of citizens everywhere.
Many professionals that normally work face-to-face with clients are now being forced to move online, changing the way they interact with their clientele. While many of these professionals have moved to platforms such as Zoom, Skype, and even LIVE sessions on Instagram in order to continue to interact with the public, many have learned that these methods may not be as lucrative as their standard practices. As Adam Skolnick wrote in the New York Times, many of these wellness professionals are struggling to make an income. Many use these platforms as a way to build their online presence, interact with the public, and improve their marketing strategies, however, offering free services has come at a cost for many businesses and professionals working in the wellness industry.
Despite this, many professionals continue to use social media as an outlet to provide wellness services to communities across the globe. In return, the public has also shifted their mental health and exercise practices to adapt to this new way of life. In today’s quarantined society, many are now exercising in their homes and have even begun expanding their practices due to open schedules and a greater need for movement.
Also, due to our current situation, there has been an influx of information, videos, and posts regarding meditation, relaxation techniques, and ways to calm anxiety. People are now focusing on their health, spending time on learning new healthy recipes, and finding unique ways to get in their exercise. While COVID-19 has brought forth a wave of fear and uncertainty, the one silver lining in this situation is that people are caring more about their health and wellness as a whole.
