With the Christmas cobwebs well and truly dusted off, the new year gives us all a chance to make a few improvements, and where better to start than with your health and fitness. Make sure those resolutions are still on track with our guide to the latest wellness trends for the year ahead.
LEAN AND GREEN
Vegetarianism is nothing new and in the past few years, plant-based diets have truly entered the mainstream. In 2020 experts predict that the balance will tip as more and more people wake up to the benefits of eating their greens. From animal welfare to health and the environment, ditching meat is going to become more popular, and increasingly cafés and restaurants will follow suit.
We all know that a good night’s sleep is vital to maintaining a healthy body and mind, and there are more and more gadgets and gizmos available to help send you off to dreamland. In addition to wearable tech which tracks your sleep, you can invest in blue-light blocking glasses and screen protectors as well as mood-boosting light bulbs which help you relax and wake up slowly.
Back to nature
More and more conversations are taking place about the healing powers of nature, and some medical practices are even prescribing gardening to people with anxiety and depression. Known as ecotherapy, it simply means any outdoor activity which has a positive impact on your well-being.
BUCK THE TREND
From matcha to turmeric, every few months a hot new superfood comes on to the scene, and right now it’s all about sea buckthorn. Also known as Siberian pineapple, it contains 15 times more vitamin C than oranges and is popping up in everything from skincare to juice.
ON THE WAGON
Forget dry January and consider cutting down your alcohol intake year-round. Studies have found that Millennials are drinking far less and brands are responding with “zero-proof” drinks; alcohol-free spirits, wines, and beers. More and more restaurants and bars around the country are introducing creative mocktails and alcohol-free bars are even popping up.
