A RECALIBRATION OF OUR VALUES, INTERESTS AND PRIORITIES
The crisis has forced people to re-evaluate what is most important in their lives.
We have downshifted the centre of gravity of our values to survival, health, family and security,
underpinned by an awareness of our vulnerability and mortality.
We have become more aware of the importance of health, fitness, exercise,
hygiene and effective health systems. Many have suffered anxiety, stress
and gained an awareness of the need to manage one’s mental health.

The time has come for a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.
Everybody wants to feel good.
Good about themselves, their family, friends, and what is around them.
Having a good life differs for each of us. Some focus on material things when others value spirituality, do workout at the gym, nurture their relationships, use products developed and produced in a manner that does not harm the planet.
Some change their food habits, manage selective waste, reduce their carbon footprint, fight and stand up for a cause and refuse injustice.
Some want to reduce stress, fulfill their curiosity for hobbies, culture and the arts, while being themselves in everything they do, respect others and the environment.
At Goodlife, we think the foundations for a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle are:
WELLNESS, SUSTAINABILITY & REALNESS
From exercising at the gym to building up resilience, Wellness is about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
It’s about staying connected and in sync with ourselves, with the ability to be fully present and aware while not allowing what is happening around us to take over.
It guides our actions and our engagement with others in the pursuit of a rewarding and fulfilling life.
Wellness stands for meaningful connections with friends, family, our inner voice and our physical body.
The quest to learn how to better manage emotions, adopt gratifying habits, leverage social interactions without suffering the burden of it, reach personal contentment and slow the pace of life has highlighted the importance of emotional and mental well-being.
In 1987, United Nations defined Sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs".
Reduce, reuse and recycle is the new motto. It goes beyond protecting the planet. How we conduct our personal or professional life, the role we play in our household, group of friends, and the society at large, are opportunities to show how much we care.
There is a surge in values such as safety, security, simplicity and meaning.
As “acting citizens”, we influence the sustainability agenda of our family, governments, social networks and corporations. We can favor sustainable products and services from socially, environmentally and ethically driven companies.
Education, culture and the arts are key drivers of the change and ensuring our children are poised to do the same, matters more than ever.
Realness, authenticity, for self and others are redefining the social and trade relationships.
Transparency, supporting a cause and standing by our beliefs becomes the norm. This is especially true for the younger generations.
A better acceptance of our differences, empathy for how others experience the world, and the ability to bring our whole selves to everything we do, personally and professionally, are opening doors to better collaboration and value creation.
We have become more open to those not like us. We want to be accepted and have learned to accept others as they are, in the way they define themselves and the way they want to be seen.
Equality, fairness, honesty are the fuel for those who believe they have the power to influence and shape the future and lead the change.
