As each year comes to a close and we look ahead to a new one, we always find it interesting to investigate current health trends that are gaining popularity and inspiring people to live a more naturally healthy lifestyle. Here are some trends on our radar for 2024 to get you pumped and ready for a new year of health and wellness.
One of the best ways to motivate yourself and work towards a fitness goal is to sign up for a race. But these days, you don’t have to wait for a charity race or running event to be scheduled in your hometown. Many people are now planning vacations around races held in national parks and other famous, scenic areas. Search for a “racecation” that inspires you, and set a goal to experience a new place while getting in shape.
Unique Yoga Classes
Yoga is certainly nothing new, but there are some exciting ways that yogis are focusing their practice. In many places, you can join “yoga hikes” that combine the best aspects of outdoor adventure, stretching your body, and inspiring your mind. Another trend is yoga combined with a moon circle to celebrate the cycles of the moon and feature ancient rituals with intuitive learning and healing vibes. Lunar phases are often tied to our emotions and energy levels, and some moon circle events incorporate yoga poses to create a full mind-body practice.
Affordable Wellness Festivals
Meditation and yoga retreats, as well as other wellness-focused festivals, have historically been very expensive and out of reach for the average person. However, some health practitioners and event planners are coming together to make the festival and retreat experience more accessible to everyone. Self-care is becoming more of a priority for people than ever before, and there’s nothing quite like that retreat feeling that comes from getting away from daily life and immersing yourself in a wellness culture that inspires healthier daily living.
The cannabis industry has exploded in recent years and finally become mainstream. An increasing number of adults are interested in trying non-intoxicating CBD products to address their medical concerns. Seagate has been on board with this trend and offers CBD droppers and creams to provide relief for muscles and joints, foot issues, itching skin, sore lips, women’s monthly cycles, stress, sore gums, and sleep. However, please note – due to pressure from our insurer, Seagate’s CBD products/promotions will be discontinued as of December 31st.
Speaking of sleep, this is a big topic in the health and wellness industry right now. So many people experience insomnia and other sleep troubles that they are turning to sleep-tracking apps, nap pods, and alternative medicine approaches for better sleep.
For many years, women going through menopause have suffered in silence and had their symptoms and concerns discounted by medical professionals and everyone around them. However, more and more women are speaking out about their experience with menopause to encourage conversations about awareness and understanding this phase of life. High-profile celebrities have been bringing attention to the topic, and companies are responding by offering various menopause-related products. Women experiencing menopause might consider attending a menopause retreat, trying health supplements to address their symptoms, or wearing medical devices to manage hot flashes.
