40+ Wellness Options and Strategies
Saturday April 30th to Saturday May 7th will mark the dates for the 4th annual Harlem Holistic Wellness Week celebration; the focus of HHWW 2016 will be on the growing population of individuals between the ages of 40 and 80 years of age.
This will include Baby Boomers who are now over 30% of the U.S. population. The Boomer generations are individuals born between 1946 and 1964. The 40+ focus will also include those who are part of the X generation individuals born between, 1961 and 1981.
This year Harlem Wellness practitioners, programs and businesses will be asked to develop special promotional activities that will target boomer and x generation individuals interested in exploring natural wellness health options.
The main objective of this year’s Harlem wellness week will be to introduce natural products and services to the 40+ population who are looking for natural ways to proactively prevent disease, slow the effects of aging and improve the overall quality of life. Meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga, KI Training, swimming even line dancing can be useful tools for developing a proactive natural wellness strategy.
The wellness industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. More people are turning to natural health care options, creating tremendous opportunities in the business of wellness. I believe there will be a day when prevention strategies will be viewed more cost effective then reactive cure in the health care industry.
Insurance companies are taking a closer look at ways to offer clients proactive wellness and prevention strategies. This is due in part because of the staggering cost of a reactive health care system and the growing numbers of Americans in the 40+ population.
The Alzheimer’s Association currently reports 1 out of 10 Americans over 65 will suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. The American Cancer Association reports that 1 out of 2 men will develop cancer in their life time.
The American Health Association cites heart disease is the number 1 killer of women and 1 out of 8 American women will have breast cancer in their life time. This is why many Americans young and old are turning to holistic wellness options of prevention, education and stress reduction programs.
If you are a Harlem based wellness practitioner or have a wellness related business or program that that has products or services which can be used as part of a 40+ self-healing wellness strategy and would like to participate in this year’s Harlem Holistic Wellness Week send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 646 39-677. You can also offer special discounts for individuals over 40.
If you are 40+ and would like to learn more about natural ways to stay healthy keep on the lookout for more information on the special discounts for products and services during this year’s Harlem Holistic Wellness Week.
If you are a member of generation Y also known as the Millennials (individuals born in the early 1980s to the early 2000s) this year’s Harlem Wellness Week will be a good time to start learning natural wellness strategic options as well.
