McKinsey – How to be well in the new year—and beyond

December 10, 2022

It’s that time again: The end of the year, for many, is a period of reflection and preparation for what’s ahead. The challenges faced in 2022 could pave the way for more uncertainties in the coming year, but if you take a step back to look at the bigger picture—and zoom in on the many pixels that paint that picture, the future may be brighter than you realize. A new report from McKinsey Global Institute’s Chris Bradley, Marc Canal, Sven Smit, and Jonathan Woetzel reveals that much of the world has actually improved over the past two decades when using a microregional lens to look at human health and economic prosperity. Check out the comprehensive report for a dramatically different view of human development around the world, uncovering the true depth and breadth of progress, and explore more insights on improving healthy aging, practicing deliberate calm, prioritizing well-being, and more.
