7 Wellness Trends To Carry Forward In 2021 To Stay Healthy And Fit

In this fast-paced, career-oriented life, health and wellness have been pushed on the backburner. People have no time for exercising, no time for sports, and no time for other wellness activities. However, the Covid-19 pandemic has brought a landmark change in people’s attitudes towards health and wellness. The pandemic has shown how important it is to have good health and strong immunity, as those with compromised immune systems suffered the worst once they contracted the lethal infection. Therefore, people are looking to make some significant changes in their lifestyle to make it healthier. As we move deeper into 2021, we will witness the global rise of health consciousness at a level that we’ve never witnessed before. So let’s discuss some of the health and wellness trends that...

Wellness And The Future Of Work: Some Of The Best Companies Share Their New Solutions

Wellness and wellbeing have been on the radar screen for a long time and it’s a rare business leader who couldn’t recite why they are important. But a year later—after the beginning of the pandemic—there have been big changes to the work we do and how we do it. As a result, leaders and companies must think in new ways and implement expanded and creative solutions to support wellbeing for the future of work. Key companies in a variety of industries are making great strides in wellness, and their approaches can inspire us to take a deeper, broader approach to a familiar topic. I spoke with senior leaders from Wiley, KPMG, ServiceNow and Monster, and they shared plenty of new ideas—helpful for consideration across all kinds of organizations, industries and business­­es. Wellbeing is importa...

Appetites growing for intermittent fasting

I haven't seen one in a while. I'm doing intermittent fasting. I've always thought that sounded a bit random. Like "accidental hero" or "scattered showers". There's nothing random about not eating for 16 hours a day. It takes solid willpower. Just ask Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Aniston and many, many more who swear by the 16:8 eating plan. Jennifer Aniston says she doesn't eat in the mornings - just coffee and celery juice. But haven't we been taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Well, you can now step away from the cereal. Recent studies contradict the traditional advice to "kickstart your metabolism" in the morning with a hearty feed. There's no solid evidence that skipping breakfast ...
Is the Wellness Industry Too White?

Is the Wellness Industry Too White?

The Black Lives Matter movement has had an immense impact on me. Aside from helping to shine a glaring light on the biases in our society, it has made me look at my own industry and, inevitably, the pronounced whiteness of wellness studios both here and abroad. I used to organize fitness camps for hundreds of women from across Quebec; we’d run in the woods and practise yoga by the St. Lawrence River. I would lead groups in Montreal every week. The purpose of these events was always the same: to bring together like-minded women who want to take care of their bodies and connect with themselves through physical movement—a goal that I naively thought of as inclusive and unifying. I now see very clearly that the vast majority of the women who attended were white. Keep reading at Elle....

From Fashion To Flower To Foreplay: Brett Heyman On Flower By Edie Parker’s Move Into Sexual Wellness

CBD is booming business; amidst the heightened stress of the past year, people can’t get enough of cannabidiol in all forms. The breakout and anxiety-relieving benefits of CBD specifically have catapulted cannabis products into the mainstream—by 2025, the CBD skincare market is estimated to reach a value of $1.7 billion, according to Grand View Research. But the de-stigmatization of cannabis remains dependent on viewing it through a health and wellness lens; few brands embrace the act of getting high. “Yes, there are lots of health and wellness benefits [to cannabis] but people talk about that already,” Brett Heyman, the founder of cannabis accessory line Flower by Edie Parker, tells Forbes. “Our brand headline is ‘for a good time;’ there is no shame in wanting to get high.” Since launc...

WW International CEO talks wellness

When the pandemic hit in March, WW International quickly pivoted its entire operations online. The company, formerly known as Weight Watchers, trained 14,000 coaches and moved 30,000 workshops online in six days. That move under Mindy Grossman, who joined WW as CEO in 2017, is one of many that has helped the 57-year-old company react to the new demands of its members increasingly focused with wellness during a pandemic. WW had been expanding beyond weight loss before COVID-19, but the pandemic accelerated those plans. In November, it launched the latest enhancement for its program called myWW+, which offers deeper personalized insights into such areas as mindset and sleep. It also launched Digital 360, an online tool specifically for millennials that offers coaching services on fitness a...

How the wellness movement is influencing home design

If you’re looking for evidence of the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on home owners around the world, the annual home design trends survey conducted by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) is a good place to start. Not only did the popularity of the home office increase a whopping 39 per cent in the third quarter of 2020, the survey provided insights into several health and wellness categories that didn’t warrant inclusion in the 2019 survey: an exercise room or yoga space and a flex-space. These spaces were requested by 23 per cent and 43 per cent of architects’ clients respectively. Products for improving indoor air quality rose in popularity from 25 per cent to 39 per cent, and task lighting from 20 per cent to 27 per cent. Read more at Domain.

5 Wellness Trends That Weren’t Quite What They Seemed

Wellness is big business and why shouldn’t it be – we all have a desire not only to look better, but also to feel better. From your basic face masks to IV drips of collagen and vitamins, it has become a trillion dollar industry. Treatments that were once only available to the stars have infiltrated the average person’s life, but what happens when the reality of wellness falls drastically short of the promise? Ashley Oerman, deputy lifestyle director at Cosmopolitan magazine explained on an episode of Archive on 4 that “wellness is just a sexier word for health. But because it’s been used to market everything from face masks to supplemental powders, basically ‘self-care’ and ‘wellness’ are just words used to sell women things that they don’t need.” Read what they are at the BBC...
