Embedding Wellness Into Education Today Makes For A Better Tomorrow #817
Nepal has just announced that they will be making Yoga compulsory in schools.
The reasoning is to encourage and promote healthy lifestyles amongst the young generation.
If we dig a little deeper into why a government would want to do this, I believe it simply makes good economic sense.
The costs of supporting an ageing and sickening population are considerable.
If a government can reduce the burden on the medical and aged care systems tomorrow by promoting healthier lifestyles today, the long-term benefits for the country could be significant.
This may just prove to be a litmus test for many other governments in the near future.
And if that happens, it will lead to massive opportunities for those in and around the Wellness sphere.
Here's a link to the story...
