Nearly half are intending spend more about themselves this year for not taking care of themselves as much as they used to – and 41% admit they need to boost their mental health.

Adults also plan to more than double spending on themselves this year on things like weekends off, home development, and vitamins.

Spokesperson from Lloyds Pharmacy, the company that commissioned the study, said: “The results did indeed identify a noticeable change in intentions.

“Of course, the old classic that eating better and exercising more is always on everyone’s list, however, research has shown a desire to focus more on things that would be better for health. their mental and physical well-being.

“And they are willing to spend a little more money to ensure they lead a happier life – whether it’s a product that can help or an experience like holiday. ”

It also shows people’s other priorities for the coming year including eating healthier, improving their physical fitness in general, as well as spending more quality time with the people closest to them.

Nearly half (48%) are more concerned with their health than in previous years, with 52% having concerns about their mental health including depression, stress or burnout.

And 42% worry about long-term conditions like heart disease and diabetes according to OnePoll data.

When it comes to their physical health, getting more exercise, eating a healthier diet, and getting more sleep are improvements that adults expect to see improvements in the coming months.

Of the one in four respondents who smoke, half will try to stop, hoping that a change of habit, distracting exercise or even going cold turkey will allow them to kick the habit.

However, 43% will use patches – and the same number will seek professional support.

Despite having made such resolutions for the coming year, those who have made them for the past 5 years have reached January 13th before breaking them.

However, this year brought a 37% increase in motivation to make more permanent changes, as they increased their spending on themselves.

And 64% admit that with each passing year, they realize the value of their health more.

Behavior change expert Dr Heather McKee, speaking on behalf of LloydsPharmacy, said: “Given the uncertainty we’ve experienced over the past few years, I’m excited to hear of her intentions. people are turning more towards investing in what will make them feel both physically and mentally healthier as we move into 2022.

“The study results are very encouraging, as they reflect what we know from behavioral science to be the most effective way to help us create long-lasting and healthy habits.

“They prove that we value our health more than ever and want to protect our long-term health because we want to feel like the future and reap the fruits of healthy living. strength that we are practicing at present. These types of motivation are called intrinsic motivation.

“Behavioral science research shows that if we follow our habits based on these intrinsic reasons – because we want to invest in ourselves and our health – we are more likely to succeed in making lasting changes.”
