With the new year around the corner, experts in the wellness sector are already predicting the hottest health trends of 2019. Wellness has never been bigger or broader and it has shown no signs of slowing down with the industry estimated to be worth a staggering £3.2billion. If you’re struggling to keep up with the latest diets or newest workouts, we’ve pulled together the wellness trends of the future to get you ahead of the game!
Trend #1 – Immersive Home Workouts
Gym memberships might be a thing of the past as the rise of home workouts will continue to evolve. Live streamed classes, compact gym equipment and personal trainer apps mean that people won’t have to leave their front room to get a HIIT workout in. In the age of efficiency, even the busiest of schedules will be able to accommodate a morning sweat. Why not start now with our home exercise blog?
Trend #2 – Keto Diet 2.0
The Keto diet soared in popularity this year for its high-fat, low-carb regime that favours dairy, meat and veg over the much-loved carbohydrate food group. However, this diet does not align to the rising lifestyle of veganism which stresses the need to eat less meat to help the environment. 2019 will welcome the latest food trend, the adapted ‘vegan keto’ diet which emphasises eating lots of nutrient dense plant-based proteins that are low in carbs. Get set to see the rise in the likes of coconut porridge and cauliflower falafel hitting the menus.
Trend #3 – Smart Jewellery
You don’t have to look far to find someone wearing an Apple watch or a Fitbit, but 2019 is set to increase the style stakes on your wearable tracker. We’ll soon be seeing smart jewellery tech; gorgeous jewellery that doubles as your daily tracking device, which will combine functionality with fashion to accompany your new outfit.
Trend #4 – Brain-Boosting Supplements
Your new medicine cabinet favourite is likely to be a brain-boosting one! Much like CurraNZ, which contains 35% blackcurrant anthocyanin extract formula to help boost cognitive function, we’ll be hearing more of supplements that nourish your mind. Nootropics will be one, popularised by Biohackers, which are aimed at helping to reduce brain fog and stress levels.
Trend #5 – Rowing
Not a complete newbie on the wellness scene, but the popularity of boutique rowing studios is set to rise and overtake the spin sessions as the latest fitness trend. It doesn’t take a genius to see why when you discover it works 85% of the body’s muscles across nine major muscle groups. This calorie-burning exercise will no longer be demoted to the warm-up choice of the gym goer and will take its place amongst standalone workouts in some of the chicest studios in the city.
