As we enter November, our eighth month of living in a global pandemic, it’s clearer than ever that many of our collective priorities have changed. It’s been a challenging year, mentally and physically. Despite an increased focus on prioritizing “wellness”, many people feel worse about their overall health and well-being, with stress and anxiety levels at recorded all-time highs.
That said, we’re pretty inspired by how you, our Fitbit community, have learned to adapt to the challenges of these unprecedented times. We know from the latest Fitbit data—and our continuing series of data stories on the blog—that users have embraced new kinds of physical activities to balance out a more sedentary WFH lifestyle.
Of course, improving your health isn’t just about the physical. In our Stress Week series last month, we helped you learn more about mindfulness, stress management, and more—through content that focused on all things mental health. But did you know that meditation and mindfulness can also help improve immune function?
This month, we are talking about immunity strengthening and support. That means we’ll be exploring everything from DIY home remedies to unexpected ways you could be wreaking havoc on your immune system—and, of course, what to do instead. We’ll be debunking common misconceptions about the flu shot, bringing you plenty of delicious and healthy recipes (as always), and more. It’s always been our mission to help people around the world get healthier, and now more than ever, we want to support you in staying healthy and strong, both mentally and physically.
