2017 brings an opportunity for you to take a 360 look at your health and see what you want to work on. The wellness industry is prepared to help! The trends this year in health are all about all-encompassing healthy living. From mind, to body to the spirit; there’s something to keep you in top shape all the way around.
From your hairstyle to your wardrobe; less is more for 2017. As we move past our need for more, more, more and grow beyond material and surface things, the trend this year is to declutter, avoid excessive consumption and live more simplistically. Get rid of what you don’t need, stop fighting your hair’s natural texture, accept and appreciate what you have and who you are. Feels nice, doesn’t it? Sort of like there isn’t a gun to your head to be someone else? Take a breath. Welcome to 2017.
Women especially will be feeling the love with each other in 2017. From women-only sports clubs to networking events to empower other women, the gatherings of females are growing. From Girl Party in Brooklyn to WMN Space in LA, these groups can help you connect, recharge and help network you into a new career or mindset.
From brands like Sweetgreen and Nally Fresh to Target expanding their produce offerings to offer more healthy options on a budget. Hotels are expanding into this trend as well by offering more wellness add-ons to their services. From meditation classes to yoga, it will be easier to stay on track even with a busy lifestyle.
Health Gets Technical
Fitness trackers and watches will become commonplace in the office to the gyms. People are looking to not only get healthy but track progress. Today’s tech offers heart rate and GPS and more to give the user everything they need to maintain an active lifestyle.
In the line of prevention, and focusing on staying well instead of treating sickness, people are using physical exercise as medicine. Regularly exercising lowers your risk of a variety of issues; including heart disease, cancer, stroke and more. The American Medical Association and the ACSM launched Exercise is Medicine which encourages physicians to get patients involved in fitness. This preventative practice could save you money, time and well, your body in the long run.
