Southern Cross Healthcare research suggests lockdown was not all bad for New Zealanders.

While there was uncertainty during lockdown about the potential impact to health, job security, family pressures and the economy, a new report revealed that New Zealanders reported feeling less stressed overall during that time.

The Healthy Futures Report said that the slower pace of life resulted in more people feeling that they were getting enough sleep (from 46% to 61%). The hours of sleep increased from 6.97 hours to 7.29 hours.

Despite being isolated physically from friends and family during lockdown, feelings of loneliness decreased (by 8%), as did concerns of being a burden on others (from 41% to 34%).

Kiwis also experienced a greater sense of belonging and connectedness to their community (from 44% to 49%).

When it came to fitness, more people felt they were getting enough exercise during lockdown than previously and people chose to exercise outdoors more.
