Millennials and their Health! ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ˜Ž

No matter what we say about the Millennial generation I think the older generation are the ones that need to change to be able to cater for them. Why do I say this? โ€ฆ Every generation below has been criticised by the generation above (you could go right back to the 60โ€™s flower generation, who are now currently the leaders in politics and industry!)

As a doctor what I have come to understand is that it is so difficult to change one's own behaviour let alone the behaviour of another person. My perspective is we need to understand what issues the millennials are dealing with. To understand their fears, anxieties, hopes and aspirations and try to connect with them on these points. Millennials are not going to stop using snapchat or Instagram and simply put down their phones. This is where they are socialising, learning, communicating and working.

They are also a generation with very high expectations of themselves in terms of relationships, careers and ambitions and as we know with high expectations there comes high pressure to succeed, which can easily turn to anxiety and then spiral to depression.

So, as a doctor, I think that in understanding the millennials beliefs, desires and behaviour we can truly start to map out their healthcare needs!
