Combining food and exercise is even better for your well-being

The more time the French spend practicing a physical activity and the longer their meal break, the higher their estimated level of well-being, according to a Kantar TNS survey for Elior Group and Paris 2024.

Well-being is a feeling of overall fulfillment brought on by the total satisfaction of the needs of the body and/or the mind. It is linked to other factors such as health, social or economical success, pleasure, self-accomplishment, being in harmony with oneself and others.


95% of the French people surveyed say they devote time to their own well-being (60% do it at least regularly) reaching an overall average well-being level of 7.4/10.

As the time devoted to exercise and meals increases, so does the feeling of well-being. French people who allow over 2 hours a day for meal breaks and pratice sports at least 4 hours a week declared the highest level of well-being, thus confirming how important those two factors are in feeling fine.

As an official partner of Paris 2024, Elior Group offers those who like to exercise and eat the opportunity to measure their well-being (in French) after at least 2024 seconds of physical effort and eating pleasure, and invites them to share the results on social networks.
