In the world of health and wellness, you can always find something new to try. From fads that claim incredible results in just a few days, to complete lifestyle changes, each year comes with new ideas just for the taking. But how do you know which trend is for you? Here’s a breakdown of some of the popular health trends of 2019.
A digital detox
We live in a world where we’re constantly connected, and we never leave the house without our phone, computer, or tablet. Consistently relying on technology can wreak havoc on our personal and social lives, as well as our mental and physical health. While some people must interact with their phones for work and other communication purposes, a new trend is to try a digital detox once in a while. Doing your own digital detox is easy — all you have to do is unplug. Delete your social media apps, turn off your cellphone, grab a book and go outside. You’ll soon notice that being in the moment is so much better than mindlessly scrolling.
The growth of CBD
CBD hit the world with ferocious energy in 2018, and this year more people are embracing CBD. CBD is a phytocannabinoid that comes from the cannabis plant but doesn’t create a sense of feeling “high” or intoxicated that marijuana brings. The substance was removed from the Controlled Substances Act, and CBD is being used to treat mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression, as well as insomnia and pain management. This year, more and more products will be infused with the healing powers of CBD, bringing in a whole new era of plant-based medication.
Celery is an underrated vegetable, and many people don’t understand just how many vitamins and nutrients come in a single stalk. Because of this, celery juice has become exceptionally popular in the world of health food. A ton of benefits can come with drinking celery juice:
- It heals the gut by restoring levels of hyaluronic acid, which aids in digestion
- It decreases cholesterol levels
- It lowers blood pressure
- It fights infection with its high levels of antimicrobial nutrients
- It contains healthy antioxidants
- It improves your skin’s appearance
Everyone’s body is different, and these are only some of the benefits that come with making celery juice a regular staple in your diet. If you can’t remember seeing celery juice in the stores, simply Google “where to buy celery juice.”
Self-care that makes you smile
With the increasing cost of health and dental care nowadays, more and more people are choosing to bring the doctor to the privacy of their own home. It has become easier than ever to invest in orthodontist- and dentist-approved clear plastic aligners and whitening processes without having to spend the premiums that come with going to a medical office. Add to this the increase in dental subscriptions that mail electric toothbrushes and toothpaste right to your door every month, and it’s easy to see that in 2019, self-care starts with your smile.
The beauty of trendy health fads is that they are relatively simple to adopt and adapt to your daily routine. Most don’t require a lot of commitment, making it easy to invest in your health and well-being. So what 2019 health trend are you going to try out?
