Whether or not you’re ready to pack away the mince pies for another year, it’s around this time of year that we all start thinking about our health again (for the first time in a month or so!). And while I always encourage people to find practices, routines and aids that work for them, it’s interesting to hear what’s new and trending in the world of wellness. I’ve spoken to the guys at Pinterest to find out what’s going to be big in 2018. So you can expect to hear a lot more about gut health and strength training next year…
Wellness Trends 2018
Searches for gut health are reportedly up 251% on Pinterest, and in the coming year people will be looking to balance their bacteria and look for gut-friendly recipes. Luckily for you there are plenty of these in my book Eat Beautiful! I’ll share some of the best in the coming weeks.
At last, people are embracing strength over size when it comes to gym training, with emphasis on what the body can do, rather than what it looks like.
People are reportedly increasingly looking to get involved in the clean air movement by investing in air purifiers and more house plants.
As you know, I’m a big fan of yoga and the practice is going from strength to strength next year, with people also looking to work stretching and flexibility training into their usual workout regime.
Pinterest saves for Tai Chi are apparently up by 189%, so expect to hear more about this under-rated exercise and wellness practice for 2018. The practice reportedly helps to reduce stress, release pain and promote body harmony. Bring it on.
