In a recent survey by global health company, Cigna, the U.S. placed ninth for health and well-being. The “Well and Beyond” survey, which was conducted online and questioned more than 13,000 adults in 22 countries (including 1,012 in the U.S.) says Americans are more stressed than ever, particularly about physical, family and workplace wellness.

“We’re seeing high incidences of stress, poor sleep quality and less time connecting with loved ones, which all can have a profound impact on one’s physical health. Instead of treating medical conditions after they arise, we want to take a proactive and preventive approach to improve our customers’ total health and well-being,” said Jose Quesada, chief medical officer, international markets at Cigna. “These new actionable insights better enable us to deliver the right tools and supportive resources to surround each individual, treating each person as a whole person, body and mind as one.”
