Yes, we live in a world where our wellness practices are determined by the interwebs and what the majority of other people are doing. The great thing about that though, is that the moment something new and effective is out in the market, everyone gets to known, and hence can go looking for that particular treatment. Our access to the newest wellness practices, trends or technologies, allows us to choose what we would like to do for ourselves and our bodies. Therefore, in our quest for your wellness and ours, here are the top wellness trends for 2016.
Exercise as a feel-good factor
Exercising is no longer only about losing weight or getting fitter. It's now more than ever before that exercise is being considered as a positive factor in life, as something that makes you feel good inside and out. A host of trainers are coming up with programs that focus on helping people deal with anxiety, depression, OCD, etc. through exercise, as opposed to focusing on body image and weight loss.
Athleisure is here to stay
We saw the trend of athleisure emerge early this year, with Kate Hudson and the newest crop of supermodels (Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid) being at the forefront. And it shows no signs of slowing down. Major sportswear brands as well as new start-ups are completely cashing in on this trend, with new collections. Plus, more and more non-famous people are stepping out in all their post-exercise or just-felt-like athleisure glory!
