Popular lifestyle trends of 2021
Health and wellness trends that ruled 2021: The top lifestyle shifts of 2021 worldwide reflect the increased public awareness for the prioritisation of health and compassion.
Take a look at some popular lifestyle trends that made a lot of waves this past year.
Partly inspired by the shift towards sustainability, minimalism was a popular lifestyle trend in 2021. Many consumers began discussing the need for mindful purchasing. This involved focusing on the motive behind a purchase rather than just the desire for the object. People limited the number of products they were buying and focused on things that were most needed or added value.
Health and immunity as essential
Healthy and immunity-boosting foods were totally ‘in’ and trending in the year 2021. The focus was on choosing the right ingredients and consuming wholesome nutritious food and drinks. People also chose to eat Ayurveda recommended and home-cooked meals instead of ordering from outside.
Mindful eating was another wellness trend that was being embraced by people in the year 2021. It made a great difference in the lives of people by forcing them to not just make the right food choices but also aim to reduce stress levels during the pandemic.
Yoga and meditation
People could not step out for their morning walks or go to the gym due to the lockdown. Therefore, yoga and mindful meditation gained worldwide popularity for their range of benefits from increased mobility and flexibility to better concentration. It also helped people to calm their anxiety and stress levels caused due to the pandemic.
Mental health awareness
The only positive impact the pandemic had on people worldwide was that everyone became more concerned about their mental and physical health. People were pushed to think about their personal and professional lives and take a better look at dealing with emotions and other mental health problems like anxiety, depression and burnout.
