The US population is putting their health first. Is our cities’ housing coping up?
By Homz | August 25, 2022
A significant chunk of the US population is considering moving to cities in search of employment opportunities, education facilities, and social interaction. But is that all a citizen wants to live a fulfilling life? This would have taken you quite a while to think and answer. But after the global pandemic, answering this question isn’t that difficult. People move to cities in search of all those above and dwellings that foster health and well-being.
Let’s look at how people’s perspective toward health and housing has changed into a new normal.
Health perspective in the new normal
After COVID-19 wreaked havoc worldwide, it orchestrated many changes on every level. The most visible change made people more health-conscious than ever. When the global health authorities advised staying at home as a precautionary measure, it allowed people to reflect on their health status. This scenario made people think about how their surroundings and communities play a vital role in maintaining their health.
Unfortunately, many growing cities in the US are just concrete jungles with heavy traffic, high-rise buildings, a lack of social interaction, and noise that only creates unhealthy living conditions. People didn’t think about it earlier, but in the new normal, they are aware of how these impact negatively on mental and physical well-being.
You’ll be surprised to know that 80% of cities in the world exceed the normal air quality limit set by the WHO. Millions of people die prematurely due to air pollution by falling prey to many respiratory and heart diseases.
The need of the hour is to build cities and communities equipped with facilities that keep up with the citizens’ health and well-being needs. People expect cities to be full of life, with green parks, broad sidewalks and cycling paths where they can exercise to maintain and improve their health.
