Millennials are those born between 1981 and 1996. They excite the minds of modern scientists and each new study leads to dozens of other works. Scientists believe that millennials love to read and devote a lot of time for education. Millennials also “killed” a lot of things, without which it was impossible to imagine the previous generation. They are called a burnt out or lost generation that is forever in search of something.
According to research, millennials love reading (on average five books a year) and they more often than any other generation visit libraries. It is surprising but millennials who grew up in the digital world prefer paper books to electronic versions. Information about reading is consistent with the fact that millennials are prone to self-improvement.
The bad news is that with a high level of education, millennials have fewer savings than previous generations and they are less financially stable. They also have a high average level of credit card debt.
According to the report from the American Psychological Association for 2018, millennials are those who report the highest level of stress in life compared to any other generations. Millennials think too much about work and are not able to completely distract from it at home and even on vacation. This, of course, leaves a mark on their mental health.
A 2018 study by LinkedIn found that 16% of millennials do not ask for vacation because they are ashamed. However, they really would like a flexible schedule and more free time.
Office workers from the millennial generation suffer from anxiety that interrupts professional and personal lives, more often than older employees. Most likely that it is due to the excessive demands of the millennials from themselves and perfectionism which appear as a reaction for the high expectations of society from them.
But there is good news for millennials. They are generally healthier than previous generations at their age, although this does not apply to certain diseases such as depression and type II diabetes. Millennials are also more prone to try innovative treatment methods like stem cell therapy which improves the overall health of the body.
Millennials are selective in the food as they want to know the truth about the products they buy from the ingredients to the sources from which these products are taken. This generation prefers to customize their food, independently adjusting the ingredients and their amount in the dish.
According to researchers, millennials were the generation that created the demand for customizable menus in cafes and restaurants. Food delivery and nutrition apps are very popular among millennials.
Millennials really love the Internet. According to research, 73% of them believe that the Internet has had an exceptionally positive impact on society. Researchers from Florida also found that millennials masterfully use technology by switching between them. Moreover, the constant change of technology did not affect their deterioration or decrease in productivity.
Millennials love to travel and a 2019 survey shoed that 57% of respondents put the opportunity to see the world in the first place. The statement that millennials have less sex is better to interpret from a position of awareness. Researchers believe that this generation has more knowledge about practices, boundaries, and sexual health which means that they are more selective.
