Fall Wellness Trends to Look Out For

Fall Wellness Trends to Look Out For

Let’s face it: 2020 was rough for everyone. Now that we’ve passed the halfway mark through 2021, positive changes are beginning to hit a stride. Many people are realizing the importance of mental health and self care, and understanding the value of finding a good work-life balance. Others have learned how to strengthen their immune systems through health and wellness practices. Overall, we’ve discovered a lot about ourselves!

This fall, there are a lot more things trending than just pumpkin spice. We’ve gathered a few interesting wellness trends to keep an eye out for this upcoming season, so that you can pave the way to an even healthier 2022.

Some of us are just beginning to learn the importance of self-care, but this fall there’s going to be a shift to community care (as self-care). How does that work? Well, during the pandemic many folks realized the importance of having support and connection within their immediate communities. There was an awareness of the value in human connection and as it turns out, scientific research backs up those warm & fuzzy feelings associated with helping others. Our brains get happy when we know we’re making a difference in other people’s lives, so giving back to others is now synonymous with taking care of ourselves.

When people began spending more time at home, makeup sales plummeted. And it makes sense: why put on makeup when you’re not going to see anyone? This fall the trend carries on, as many people are enjoying the benefits of fewer skin care routine steps each day. And really, many of the products we use on our faces are unnecessary and sometimes even harmful to skin. We are all pretty excited to save money on skincare products, save some time in the mornings, and save face.

The Swedes had it right all along: saunas and bathhouses are the way to go! Since the pandemic caused us the need to distance ourselves from others, a trend towards alternative therapies like saunas and float tanks increased. Since many people are feeling more burned out now than ever, it means that getting out and enjoying some relaxing “me” time will be back in a big way. 

Remember when drinking alcohol was what the “cool” kids did? Well, not anymore! Sobriety, or even simply being sober-curious are new trends that are picking up steam. Sober bars (with non-alcoholic drinks only) are popping up all over the U.S., and more people are opting for a clear head and a good night’s sleep over the restless anxiety caused by alcohol. There is even a new phrase popping up: “California Sober”, which means that someone abstains from all mind-altering substances (with the exception of cannabis). Either way, moderation is on-trend this fall. 

This year, people that are trying to get their health and weight back on track are focused on mindful and intuitive eating. In the past, many made enemies of certain foods or macronutrients like fats, carbohydrates, or gluten. But there is a new trend in understanding that diet isn’t a “one size fits all” approach, and that slowing down and listening to your body as you eat may open up the capacity to eat and enjoy a wider range of foods - all while maintaining a healthy, balanced weight. Unsure of where to begin? Here is where you can find a full list of mindful eating tips.

Along with the rise of touchless spas and saunas, exposing your body to cold water has been found to have numerous health benefits. It is connected with a boost in energy and rejuvenation, supporting the lymphatic system which works to flush toxins out of your blood and body. The great news is that you don’t need a cold therapy machine to reap the health benefits of cold therapy. You can enjoy cold therapy at home just by alternating bursts of ice cold water in the shower with bursts of hot water, or even submerging your body in a cold water bath for a short period of time. Just remember to start slow, and don’t overdo it when you are first getting started. 

The news and social media constantly spread negativity, and if you’re not careful it can quickly feel overwhelming. Online media can greatly impact mental wellness, and people are finding new benefits from taking more frequent breaks from their smartphones. Companies have developed simpler phones that have limited app capabilities, and some people are removing social media from their lives altogether. Here is some great advice for how to do a digital detox yourself.

Since many folks couldn’t hit the gym as frequently this summer, there has been a rise in popularity with enjoying the great outdoors. Not only is going for a walk or hike outside beneficial for your cardiovascular health, but it is also important for your mental health too. Enjoy some outdoor scenery this autumn and start hiking

A new season is a great opportunity to reassess your wellness habits and get your mind and body back on track. And hey, why not give one of these new trends a try? You never know, one of these wellness trends could be the key in developing long-lasting, healthy changes.
