As February draws to a close, you may be wondering how you can take the next step into your fitness and wellness journey. When doing the same workout at the gym every day gets boring, consider incorporating these 4 health and wellness trends into your life.
Working out from home
While gyms will always be helpful - especially with how expensive some equipment can be - working out from home is one of the top fitness trends of 2020. Accessibility is an important factor when it comes to planning and establishing a fitness routine, and, if the closest gym is thirty minutes away, you may find yourself falling short on your goals.
However, by working out at home more often, you’ll save time, money, and gas. While you may not be able to bike or use the treadmills at home, there are many things that you can do that will still help you reach your goals.
Simple workout routines that need little to no equipment or workouts that focus on using your body weight are the best way to go. You can also try other fitness activities such as yoga to supplement those days you either can’t or don’t want to go to the gym but also don’t want to fall behind.
With the rise of technology such as The Mirror, an interactive mirror featuring a virtual personal trainer, it’s no surprise that artificial intelligence in the work-out place is a hot trend. Artificial intelligence is seeping into every aspect of our lives - from digital marketing to cooking to even simple tasks such as checking the weather. Incorporating it into your fitness routine will allow you to educate yourself and plan workouts that are the right fit for you. That’s not all AI technology is good for though. It can also help with other aspects of your health and wellness by reminding you to drink water, helping you destress, and guiding you through meditation.
It’s important to focus on all aspects of your health rather than just the physical portion. While holistic routines and self-care have always been significant, especially in most eastern cultures where yoga has always been an important religious and cultural aspect, popularity will rise in 2020. Holistic routines are easy to do alone or with friends, at home or at the gym. They can also be relatively quick, with some meditation sessions being as short as five minutes long, allowing you to spend a little time improving your mental health each and every day.
Finally, focusing on your technological health is an important and popular trend. Most people spend hours each and every day on their phones and laptops. Positive technological health encourages you to step back and focus on other aspects of your life as well. However, it also takes into account that sometimes, whether for work or school, your life will revolve around your laptop, and thus certain apps have been created to help balance your digital life while also featuring helpful features such as blue light filters.
