Health & Wellness trends for 2018 are bursting on the scene. Some are dorky, some shouldn’t be trends at all, some are interesting, and some are ridiculous. I received an email from Well + Good a month ago with its “Highly Anticipated 18 Wellness Trends of 2018.” Of course, I’ve been so busy that I just got to read it today. A few insights…
- This year is the year of the woman. Several of the trends listed have to do with women-inspired, women-owned, and women-run businesses taking the fate of women’s health and wellness out of the hands of male-dominated industry. Well, it is about damn time, and more power to all the innovative women out in the business world.
- Moringa is supposedly going to be the new “IT” supplement, super food, etc. I’d never heard of it before. What are the chances that it tastes like chocolate or cheesecake, or chocolate cheesecake?
- I really don’t ever want to see self-care on a trending list. It should be the foundation of your existence.
- Of course you should feed your pets as good of quality food as you eat. They’re your family members! This should not be a trend, but a requirement to living with an animal. Woof. Meow. Word.
- I’m not so keen on bringing fitness technology into our homes. I like some separation. And I like having my yoga and boxing communities. (Yes, I punch bags.)
- My home has always been my oasis and I decorate as such. I’m obviously way ahead of the trends with my plants, salt lamps, essential oil diffusers, water fountains, singing bowls and cats.
- Nutmilk yogurt sounds interesting.
Well, don’t simply take my word for it. Explore these so-called trends on your own, then see what you might want to explore more. And a Happy 2018 to you all!
