The New Year is coming! and Since many things are still closed right now and those that are open may not offer all the same things as they did before the novel coronavirus, implementing wellness trends that can be done at home is an excellent idea to get your New Year off to the right start. It will give you a chance to try new things and stave off some of the boredom that you might be experiencing. If you aren’t sure where to start, we have some ideas that can get you started.
If you’ve never given acupressure a shot, there’s no time like the present. This is a wellness trend that can easily be done at home and doesn’t require any help from others. As long as you have a device like the Q-Flex or are focusing on pressure points you can reach with your hands, it’s a solo activity.
Acupressure can be used for all sorts of things ranging from injuries and illnesses to stress, anxiety, and depression. It’s a type of Traditional Chinese Medicine that focuses on applying pressure to specific points on the body. Depending on the benefits you want to enjoy, the points will vary.
While meditation isn’t new, it’s something that more and more people are trying to increase their level of wellness. Essentially, meditation is a process where you train your brain to focus and redirect your thoughts. It can result in a most positive outlook on life and even increase your confidence. Some people use meditation to maintain attention, while others find it boosts memory and mental clarity.
A tech cleanse or detox refers to spending a certain amount of time without turning on your phone, vegging out with Netflix, or otherwise relying on modern technological devices. We recommend trying out a tech-free day once a week so you can enjoy other things in your life. If you aren’t sure you can go that long without your phone or tablet, start with just an hour. You’ll be surprised how productive you can be.
If you haven’t heard of intuitive eating, it’s sure to be on your radar soon. The idea behind intuitive eating is learning to listen to your body and what it’s saying to you. Some of the basics behind intuitive eating include only eating when you’re actually hungry, stopping as soon as you’re full, and not categorizing food into “bad” and “good” items so you can enjoy the eating experience.
Technology has changed the way people can work out and provided us with options as diverse at live-streamed classes to apps led by celebrities. While you’re spending more time in your home, consider whether any of these options might work for you. This is a growing industry that is taking the world by storm and it could revolutionize the way you see exercise if you give it a chance.
There are tons of wellness trends out there that don’t require you to leave your home so consider trying a few that sound interesting to you. Whether it’s daily acupressure or weekly tech-free time, it might improve the way you feel and change the way you live your life.
