Every year brings new and exciting trends in the areas of health and wellness. And given the explosive growth in popularity of CBD, it should come as no surprise that CBD is one of the hottest wellness trends of 2021. But there are others too, ranging from Tik Tok workouts to touchless spa treatments. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular wellness trends of 2021, so that you can have a big picture of where the wellness community is at and, hopefully, find a few helpful items to add to your own regime.
Let’s check some of them out, and you can decide what works for you.
Tik Tok for Your Daily Workout
The pandemic forced us to get a little creative with our workout routines, so many people found solace in snack-sized workouts from Tik Tok.
Tik Tok gave millions of people a creative way to burn up all of the extra time we were spending indoors during quarantine. So, with a gaping void in the fitness world, it was only a matter of time before Tik Tok workouts became a force to be reckoned with.
If you think about it, Tik Tok is almost like YouTube — you can find just about anything! The beauty of these bite-sized workouts is they give you just enough to get the blood pumping, and you can save the video to create a mini routine of your own.
If you took some time off your fitness routine, creating five- to 10-minute workouts is an incredible way to ease yourself back into the swing of things — without feeling like you might croak in the process!
What’s fitness without the right foods to fuel your body?
We all want to make our day-to-day run a little smoother, and meal kits are one way to make it happen.
Who wants to make weekly runs to the grocery store to get this, that, and the other for your next meal, when you can simply order from a meal kit provider?
There are many different options. Some meal kit providers send you all the veggies pre-cut, and all you need to do is follow the recipe and sizzle it up. On the other hand, if you don’t want to actually “cook,” some providers send pre-made meals that only need heating up (no recipe required).
Meals kits gained a lot of attention during the pandemic when people fought over food (and tissue paper, but we won’t go there). Normalcy is coming back around, but it looks like meal kits are here to stay.
If you’ve dabbled in metaphysical conversations, you’ve probably heard about the “big shift.” With excess downtime comes LOTS of time to reflect and ponder some of the deep questions we all toss around from time to time.
Many have taken an interest in numerology, tarot readings, manifestation techniques, and daily affirmations to keep the mind, body, and soul in sync.
Some people connect with all of these practices, while others focus their energies on the one or two that work best for them. Whatever your preference, spiritual self-care is a great way to build confidence, plan your goals, reduce stress and anxiety, and connect with other like-minded individuals.
Touchless Spa Treatments
Spas were closed for a while, so it’s no surprise they opened back up with “touchless” treatments — salt baths, cryotherapy, hot spring visits, IV drips, infrared saunas, float tanks, and more.
This isn’t the ideal trip to the spa, but some of these treatments provide a unique experience many people want to say they tried at least once. Besides, you still need an outlet to decompress and release all the tension you’ve acquired, and these types of treatments provide the perfect outlet to do so!
Outdoor Therapy Sessions
Who doesn’t need therapy after 2020? Many therapists held virtual therapy sessions during the pandemic, but this option wasn’t as helpful for some people as they might have hoped.
Therapy is a private matter, where you divulge some of your deepest thoughts and feelings. How can you comfortably do this if you’re at home with your whole family? In response to this, many therapists are moving therapy sessions outside — taking a pleasant stroll as things have been slowly opening up.
Plenty of people find this method most helpful, because you get out of the office and away from that intimidating couch. This shift has opened up a whole new environment to open up and speak your mind comfortably.
Nutrient-Infused CBD Products
You know about CBD already, but have you heard about vitamin and nutrient-infused CBD products?
CBD and wellness go hand in hand, so it makes sense to see products like CBD Gummies with Multivitamins or a Wellness Tincture infused with curcumin and coenzyme Q10.
Products like these integrate into your daily routine with a specific type of ease. Who knew it could be this easy to take advantage of CBD and get your daily nutrients?
CBD is non-psychoactive, so you don’t have to worry about experiencing any type of “high.” The cool thing about CBD is there’s a wide range of benefits at your fingertips. Whether you need to release body tension or prep the mind and body for bedtime, CBD helps with those things and everything in between.
If you haven’t hopped on the CBD train, what are you waiting for? There are plenty of options, no matter what your lifestyle calls for.
Looking Into the Future
The idea of wellness grows daily. The cool thing about “wellness” is it’s so incredibly broad. There are always new trends to try or create all on your own.
So if you want to go float in a cryo tank for the first time — do it.
If you want to learn how to read tarot cards to get more in touch with your spiritual side — do that too.
One of the most beautiful things about life is we have countless options and experiences at our disposal. It’s all in the name of wellness, which benefits you at the end of the day — so, what do you have to lose?
