The Future of Wellness: How Multiply is shaping a new era of health and wellbeing

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Momentum Health Solutions officially relaunched Multiply – ushering in a new era of wellness, that promises to revolutionise health and wellbeing rewards to create true future wellness.

“Holistic wellness has never been this sophisticated, yet recent advancements, such as the increasingly widespread adoption of AI and apps designed to facilitate wellbeing is causing humans to panic.” says John Sanei, futurist specialising in the intersection of neuroscience and futurism, at the launch event. “This is evident in the inability of adults to sit by themselves for as little as 10 minutes, which is a major cause for concern, but meditation is one of the ways this can be rewired. Small changes like mindfulness practices often seem insufficient, but I believe the future of wellness starts here.”

On this basis, the new Multiply Inspire and Engage solutions bring together the latest advancements in science, technology, and human ingenuity to create a more holistic approach to health. With a focus on personalised solutions, these apps have been designed to meet the unique needs of each individual, helping them to achieve optimal health and wellbeing in a way that guides consumers to reach their personal best, with incremental changes that yield big health and financial rewards.

Speaking at the relaunch event which consisted of an expert panel, alongside John Sanei, was sleep expert Dr. Alison Bentley, nutritionist Mbali Mapholi and medical doctor and techpreneur, Dr. Michael Mol who unpacked the future of wellness, grounded in today’s best practice, to inform what they believe tomorrow will hold for consumers.

A key new introduction to the new Multiply platform is Recharge Dayz that assesses users’ readiness to face the day. This addition highlights the importance a good nights’ sleep. According to Dr Bentley, “Sleep health is a 50-year-old practice, as opposed to heart disease research and treatment, which is over 300 years old – this is why moving sleep into the public space and offering increased education on its impact to overall wellbeing is only now receiving the focus it deserves.

What many people don’t know is that sleep apnea is the underlying cause for increased bodily dysfunction and is linked to most major health concerns, 30% of adults have significant sleep disorders – this is why it is important to be proactive about getting the right sleep.”

Integral to these offerings is the emphasis on personalised solutions – catering to everyone’s unique needs with an array of personalised wellness plans that consider individuals’ specific health and wellness baseline, preferences, and goals.

By prioritising a personalised, holistic approach to health that incorporate emerging technologies and sustainable practices, consumers can look forward to a healthier, happier future.

It’s no secret that a healthy life starts with a healthy gut. Mbali Mapholi says “When we do not eat well, we physically cannot concentrate or feel good but also, we may end up navigating our daily lives in a constant foul mood. Good nutrition helps us extend our lifespan and quality of life. Practicing mindful eating like going through a plate of food in 20 minutes as opposed to average 5 minutes and being truly present when having a meal can go a long way to changing daily habits in order to achieve long-term health benefits.”

Another pillar is the focus on community. Now with a range of opportunities for people to connect with others who share their goals and interests. Multiply’s online forums, challenges, and rewards, help people to come together and support each other on their wellness journeys.

According to Dr Mol, “Life is so much better when you’re healthy – but just because you’re not sick, doesn’t mean you’re healthy. Health is not a default setting, it requires pro-active pursuit and the most pro-active thing we can do to invest in our health is to focus on how we eat, sleep, move, breathe and connect.”

So, what is the future of wellness? Here are just a few of the trends and technologies that are shaping the future:

Eat – gone are the days of calorie counting – it’s about nourishment now. If there is no nutrition – you heart, mind and bones suffer – and ultimately your overall health.
Sleep – sleep tracking will become pivotal as well as the rise of bedroom redesigns that allow for better sleep hygiene. Everyone’s sleep cycle is unique and it’s important that everyone finds their ideal cycle.
Breath – psychology does not work anymore but as we relax our brain neurons, we can rewire to new and better frequency. Relaxing the nervous system should be a key focus and neuroscience is key to helping rewire and refire the human system something that needs to be retaught in today’s age.
Move – there are endless wellness trends, apply what best works your life. The best exercise is the one you most enjoy, because that means more consistent exercising, which is the ultimate goal.
Connect – Increased socially connections make for a healthier and a longer life than that of more isolated peers as social relationships help reduce stress and heart-related risks.

“In an increasingly complex, fast-paced and ever connected world, people will continuously look for increased simplicity that deliver multiplied rewards,” says Márcia Garcia Eugenio – Head of Multiply Incentivised Wellness for Momentum Health Solutions.

“The considered changes to Multiply is one way we are delivering on this need today. Our team of experts are constantly developing improved solutions – dedicated to exploring new avenues across Eat, Sleep, Breath, Move and Connect – the foundation of proactive, holistic wellness, after all health is not just the absence of disease, but true health and wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being as best put by WHO,” she concludes.

Today holistic wellness starts with scanning your finger on the Multiply app first thing in the morning, tomorrow an ecosystem and access to tools and research important to empower and evoke change.
