This is how you can be healthy and stay that way

Christoph Marek, Allianz Board Member, sums up this year’s Allianz Health Barometer results: “Austrians feel less healthy than they were before the pandemic.” Stress is putting increasing pressure on the population and public healthcare no longer fully meets their needs. “While in 2020, 72% of those surveyed felt healthy, around 63% are currently largely immune to health issues. “In order to counter this trend, we need an optimal offering of one-to-one and modern offerings. We don’t just start when complaints or illnesses appear, we take a comprehensive look at people’s health at an early stage. When it comes to health, the doctrine is also: promote, prevent and take a holistic approach. “says Marek.

Psychological health

In a representative Allianz survey, participants identified stress as a critical factor in loss of well-being and health. Indeed, 27 percent feel stressed often (2020: 20 percent), and women more than men. Only about half of those surveyed are satisfied with their work-life balance – in 2020 it was nearly two-thirds. 38 percent believe they may one day be affected by burnout (2020: 31 percent). This topic is particularly relevant for people aged 14 to 29: more than half of them already feel at risk. Important factors in this age group are time pressure and a perceived need to be available at all times. At the same time, awareness of the importance of taking care of our mental health and accepting suitable insurance offers has increased significantly in recent years. “Up to 80 percent of psychological problems start between the ages of 14 and 25. “It’s very important for us to help remove the stigma from this topic,” Marek says.
