The time to commit to that New Year’s resolution list is now, starting with a healthier lifestyle. But where do you start? Here are 11 health trends predicted for 2019 to help you achieve your health goals.
Although already popular in 2018, celery juice is going to get even bigger in 2019. ABC News predicts we’ll be seeing it on restaurant menus and at grocery stores.
“It has given me amazing energy, great digestion and my skin looks better all because of drinking celery juice every morning on an empty stomach,” Hannah Bronfman, founder of HBFIT, told ABC News.
Self-care has been a growing trend, with meditation playing a major role. There are more mobile apps than ever that help you practice meditation. You no longer have to go to a class taught by a meditation guru surrounded by complete strangers. You can easily meditate comfortably from home.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-hallucinogenic marijuana plant extract with a wide array of potential health benefits. According to Good Morning America, CBD can stop anxiety, treat Parkinson’s disease and seizure disorders, and reduce itchiness, acne, and allergic dermatitis. CBD is predicted to reach the mainstream in 2019.
Medium-chain triglycerides, or MCT, from coconut oil and palm oil, allegedly promotes weight loss and a healthy metabolism. It’s becoming increasingly popular as a result of the keto diet, a weight loss trend that involves high-fat, low-carbohydrate eating. The “keto-effect” will make MCT even bigger in 2019.
There are always going to be workout trends, but in 2019, we’ll see a lot more workout recovery. Stretching, sleep, stress relief, massages, and ice baths are all examples of workout recovery. ABC News says we’ll see more high-tech recovery tools in 2019.
High Fiber Foods
Foods high in fiber, such as cauliflower, are growing popular as on-the-go, healthy snacks.
“High fiber foods are one of the biggest nutrition-focused wellness trends on the horizon for 2019,” Tanya Zuckerbrot, founder of the F-Factor Diet, told ABC News. “Fiber is the secret nutrient for losing weight without hunger, boosting energy and living a healthier life.”
At-home workouts are back in style. Whether it be through live-stream classes, a mirror that’s an interactive gym, or fitness apps, there are more resources for at-home workouts then ever before, and people are taking advantage. Exercising at home will be a major trend in 2019.
Low Carbohydrate Density
People are becoming more aware of their carbohydrate density intake. Carbohydrate density is the percentage of food that consists of carbohydrates, excluding fiber. Nutritionists encourage consumers to keep their carbohydrate density low (under 30 percent) to maintain a healthier gut. With this trend expected to take off in 2019, you can wave that bloated belly goodbye.
Going along with rising self-care trends is the use of ginger oil for aromatherapy. Ginger oil can be used for baths, massages, and condiments to lower the heart rate, alleviate pain, and reduce anxiety, among other benefits. This product will help consumers relax and calm their minds in 2019.
Purpose and meaning will play a major role in health routines in 2019, says ABC News. For example, time spent with family, down time, a break from technology, and laughter are all activities now being recognized for their health benefits. This year, more people will take a moment to slow down and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
Last but not least, drinking hydrogen water has numerous benefits, including both brain and body health. It has been proven to have various positive effects, such as improved memory and decreased muscle fatigue. Drinking hydrogen water is a growing trend, so give it a try in 2019.
