Trends / Health & Wellness

What kind of trends can you keep an eye out for in 2018, and which will stick around? Here are just a few gaining traction.


A frequent buzzword around the internet and social media recently is “self-care.” If you’ve been in the dark, it’s the simple idea that, in order to get anything done or help anyone in today’s world, you have to take care of yourself first. Whether it’s just taking a breather at the end of each day, or carving out a few hours each week to focus on your own needs and wants, self-care is a staple in the mental and physical health routines of many.

Natural skincare and beauty products are becoming more mainstream as well, and, following the trend, all-natural beauty products not only feed your skin, but they’re becoming better at what they do, providing more coverage and color without sacrificing your skin’s health.

Whether it’s a new mattress, sheets, lighting, supplements or sound machines, getting high-quality sleep is a big priority.

Breathwork, Mindfulness and Meditation

With stress and anxiety more prevalent among millennials, breath work, mindfulness and meditation are all sought as ways to alleviate these mental health maladies. Don’t be surprised to hear more of your friends investing in mindfulness apps, meditation classes and more.
