The New Year is the perfect time to recommit to a healthy lifestyle or maintain it. Let’s take a look at some of the best healthy lifestyle trends to follow in 2023.
Have you ever heard of slow living? The term refers to leading a lifestyle that’s mindful, conscious, and meaningful. Essentially, slow living means taking a step back and remaining grounded. It directly opposes the hustle culture that’s dominated society in recent years. Slow living can influence everything from the interior design of your home to the food you eat to the meditation practices you follow – do some research and find out whether slow living might be something you’re interested in trying.
If there’s one silver lining of the pandemic, it’s that workplace wellness is here to stay. This year, employers and employees alike will continue striving for non-toxic workplace environments, healthy office cultures, and better relationships between coworkers, supervisors, and upper management. Plus, more employers than ever include wellness initiatives in their benefits packages, like subsidized gym memberships or wellness stipends to be used at healthy food stores.
2023 is the year to start drinking alcohol on your terms – whether you want to manage it more effectively or cut it out entirely. There is a mainstream shift in the conversation around alcohol consumption, especially during the New Year as we see trends like dry January, the sober-curious lifestyle, and others pop up. Take some time to think about how you want to consume alcohol this year, if you want to at all, and then set some goals around this topic to help you drink more mindfully.
Rather than “going hard” at the gym every day, more and more people are turning to simpler, fundamental fitness routines to maintain their healthy lifestyles. From stretching and yoga to simple aerobics and jogs around the block, it’s often easier to get healthy – and stay that way – when you make it a part of your normal life routine. It’s much easier than staying committed to that New Year’s resolution to hit the gym daily.
Make Healthy Living Your Trend
Whether you choose to follow healthy lifestyle trends this year or not, one thing is for sure: Committing to your own health and wellness is never a bad thing. Consider some of the trends discussed above and set some goals for yourself as 2023 rolls on!
