Maintaining 'physical health': exercise and healthy eating as popular as spending time with family or pets

  • "Quality time" steps forward in people’s perception of what keeps them physically healthy
  • One in three now include "take a break from technology" in their health routine
  • "Spending time with family, friends or pets" has increased from just over half of people in 2014, to just under two thirds this year
  • Mexico, Spain and Canada in top five countries for spending time with family, friends or pets as part of their physical health routine

When it comes to which activities people do to stay healthy, it is no surprise that nearly two thirds of the online population across 17 countries include getting enough sleep, eating healthy food, and exercising.

What is more surprising is that almost the same number now include “spending time with family, friends or pets” as something they “do regularly to maintain their physical health”. This is up from just over half in 2014.
