Five New Healthy Living Trends We Think You’ll Want to Try
As healthy living trends continue to grow in popularity, we’re putting the spotlight on five up and coming trends we’re ready to get on board with.
1. Juice will be center stage
Juice bars and juice manufacturers have seen great success in the last year, including a $90 million dollar investment by Coca Cola in juice company Suja. New kid on the block, Juicero, is set to change the landscape with the world’s first at-home, cold-press juicer. With already $100 million in investments, this one looks like it’s going to make a big mark on the industry.
2. There’s wellness in sound
There’s a lot of research that sound and music can heavily influence our emotions. Last year, sound baths emerged as a wellness tool and they are starting to get more attention. The New York Times featured two of the more well-known sound bath studios in Los Angeles, The Sound Space and Temple of Intuition.
3. More balance in the workplace
We’ve all heard the millennial generation is different. They are serious about having a work-life balance. They aren’t just looking for a paycheque, they’re looking for a supportive workplace of mentorship and freedom. This trend is now even making it into Silicon Valley and Wall Street.
4. Athleisure start-ups keep rising
Athleisure is the fashion trend in which clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as during work, casual or social occasions. Traditionally, big names like Nike, Reebok and Adidas held the market here, but small athleisure start ups are making big strides. Being nimble and promoting a strong sense of an inclusive community is setting them aside from the athletic wear giants. Outdoor Voices founder Tyler Haney says, “Bigger brands have built very strong positioning around performance or competition — we’ve recognized that there are a lot of people out there that don’t see themselves as an athlete per se, but are still very much interested in being active.”
5. Devices that improve wellness
Wearable that only monitor and track are becoming a thing of the past as users demand more out of their devices. New devices integrated with artificial intelligence, like Belty Good Vibes, provide insights into users’ unique habits, giving them a customized experience while helping them to live a healthier lifestyle.
