Healthy living in Lagos: For the professional always on the move
One of the most riveting things to come out of the pandemic is the fixation on healthy, intentional living. People around the world saw the need to focus on personal health and wholeness and brands have keyed in on that.
Brands create content around it, companies encourage employees to prioritize their physical and mental wellbeing. Restaurants now more than ever; emphasize that they have vegan options and those that never saw the need to include vegan options made room. We could go on and on.
Intentional healthy living gained a lot of traction primarily due to the pandemic and the emphasis health professionals put on developing healthy habits to curb the spread of the COVID 19, however, it has grown beyond just curbing the virus; it is a way of life that people around the world have now become increasingly intentional about maintaining.
