Wellness is not new

The desire for alternative forms of wellbeing is not new. It may even feel necessary. Many of the wellness trends come from indigenous practices. Wellness tourism is not new either. In the early twentieth century, tubercular patients travelled to the desert of New Mexico to breathe the thin, dry air.

But what makes modern wellness different is its relentless focus on the self as the base for all improvement.

The trickle-down wellness

Modern wellness assumes that if you work hard enough on your body and mind, you will reach the top of the world and spread it to people around you.

The latest focus is on individual enhancement. It makes sense then that the wellness industry shifted to podcasting. People listen alone to a deeply individualistic medium. While it may seem like a collaboration between host and listener, it is really a one-way dialogue that ultimately leads to an advertisement addressing something essential that you lack.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
