When you read Greatist, chances are that you will not bet on trends just because a celebrity casually mentioned it in their Insta stories. You are doing your homework! But it is okay to be curious – just because everyone is talking about the latest miracle drugs and the philosophy of wellbeing does not mean they are wrong.
We have seen many fashions coming and going to see what seemed like they were stuck for 2019. Here are the home remedies, gadgets, lotions, potions, and movements that we think might work, those we're not sure about, and those who are likely to be BS, but still have curious stamina [1
Lip Care Is Essential
Frankly, it's amazing that the skincare industry has recently realized that they can make us so obsessed with caring for our lips as we do with the rest of our faces – especially, when cold, dry air attacks our mouth and a stick from Burts Bees does not quite cut it. The market is currently overflowing with lip-specific oils, peels, mineral masks and Meghan Markle-approved pink SPF balms. And that's only the beginning …
Lagom makes us deter
Already in January 2017 Vogue had predicted that the Swedish concept of lagom was so great would be year – but this rush to declare trend status was exactly against from lagom. As defined by the London emigre Niki Brantmark in her book Lagom: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life Lagrom means "not too little, not too much". This kind of moderation has (finally) prevailed in the world of interior design, with the neutral colors highlighted (but not overloaded) by small, pretty details – on Pinterest and Instagram.
But she has also started making much sense as a healthy-living philosophy. "All in moderation" sounds like something your grandmother would say, but Lagom makes the idea of a nature walk (but not a walk on the Appalachian Path) and a coffee break seem like a very meaningful life choice.
Our Faces Have Become Gardens
This metaphor goes surprisingly far: First, we start to make the soil fertile – for example, by ensuring that the microbiome of your skin is healthy and there is a balance of good bacteria. They do this best through dieting, but there is evidence that topical prebiotics and probiotics may be helpful in treating conditions such as eczema and acne. You may want to add some dirt or good sound to your normal mask routine.
And do you know what works well with the ground? Bugs Beeswax, royal jelly and snail mucin are main ingredients in skincare lines, based on ancient traditions and a bit of science. Of course, many cleansers and lotions, both the old classics and the popular Korean brands, use the many properties of the flowers. I just hope that after all this you do not really start to sprout anything.
We Can Try DIY Anxiety and Stress Relief
Let's first say that fears are a serious problem requiring the help of a mental health expert, and we are not in favor of replacing real medical advice with things you do learn from the internet. For anyone whose symptoms are milder or want to supplement their care, the options for home relief grow exponentially.
You can download apps that help you meditate, hedge your symptoms, and even turn self-regulation into a disease game. You can meet with a therapist online. You can also buy marijuana legally in many states and throughout CBD oil (see below) if you find this. On the days when everything is just too much, you can cuddle up with a weighted blanket and wish that Lagom really worked for you.
Chlorophyll lattes meet coffee houses
Leave aside, matcha. There's a new green bar in town, and health claims are out of control. From bad breath to cancer to sexually transmitted diseases: If you google it, chances are that chlorophyll can fix it. While a small study found that taking chlorophyll supplements (thanks to its antioxidant content) slightly increased weight loss and cholesterol levels, experts have suggested that we need much more research to confirm the claim of "superfood".
Today, throughout America, you can find baristas that blend chlorophyll-packed supplements such as spirulina and chlorella into your frothy morning brew to create "mermaids" inspired mugs. And hey, even if the whole milk, whipped cream and syrup pumps lift the potential health benefits of superfood greens, you'll get a good gram.
Adaptogens Go Mainstream
Drawing Adaptogens from Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine is a trendy class of products for naturopathy that help to control the stress response through hormonal regulation. So far, they have only been discussed by wellness bloggers and discovered in overpriced shelves for health foods, but by 2019, they will make their mainstream debut. According to Nutritional Outlook, sales of one of the most common adaptogenic herbs, ashwagandha, rose more than 57 percent last year, with a total market value of $ 9.5 million.
It is important to note, however, that while adaptogens are considered safe for the general population, the research on the efficacy of adaptogens is still evolving and the studies we conduct involve much higher doses than those likely to occur be found in the fortified foods on our shelves. Regardless, if you still want to try these supposed superfoods, just have it done by your doctor to make sure there are no interactions or concerns. Misuse of supplements leads to more than 20,000 emergency rooms each year, so something "natural" does not mean that it is benign.
Since you plan your behavior resolutions for 2019, it might be time to think outside the (CrossFit) box. We thought we'd seen everything when fitness classes were streamed directly into your living room, but get ready to wrap your brain around some of the biggest predicted fitness trends of the next year, from crazy new workouts to old ones Fashions are enough life.
Digital is old news – we are becoming virtual
VR fitness training, everyone? According to Laura DiBiase of Perfect Gym, the fitness industry is moving towards state-of-the-art, affordable virtual reality fitness games. Companies like Holodia use VR in combination with bicycles, rowers and elliptical trainers to train and stimulate their training.
"These games can be used in fitness clubs as well as in public institutions such as schools or for personal use." DiBiase says. "With the dramatic top level of technology recently added to support the functionality of these games, their inevitable presence in the fitness market is expected to boom in the course of 2019." VR can help to improve your fitness routine, so that training is fun and accountability even easier. TBD over all the sweating in a face mask.
Chest Day, Leg Day … Brain Day?
Ace If it was not hard enough to train all the muscles in the body, brain training is a popular addition to the fitness routines in 2019. "The best athletes spent hours a week training their heads for excellence" says Patrick Sweeney, founder of Adventure Hub. But it is no longer just for elite powerlifters and endurance athletes. "Now there will be more centers and apps that help train weekend warriors to harness the power of the brain to optimize their physical performance." Training apps like Lucid and HeadTrainer are already included.
Megaformers make a comeback
If you look at the tabloids (um, you ?), You've heard of celebrities like Meghan Markle and Kim Kardashian West who trained on the funky-looking torture device. That would be the Megaformer, a device similar to a Pilates reformer, but with some extra body burning features (more grip on the machine, less inter-train transition time) that many famous people swear by.
The Megaformer was invented by the coach and CEO of Lagree Fitness Sebastien Legree, who wanted to combine Pilates with cardio, but in the simplest possible way. (Note: you'll actually wonder how little exercise can make your whole body cry.) It's been around since 2005, but 2019 will be the year people try (or a second try), more studios now land throughout the country.
Boxing is the New Spinning
Boxing was once a sport reserved for people who did not mind training in a dark, damp cave. Then came boutique boxing studios and suddenly it's been sexy again. Nowadays, it is a sport of models and fitness enthusiasts everywhere – and when it comes to training involving cardio and weight training, boxing will probably become more popular in comparison to spinning in 2019.
For beginners, slamming a heavy bag is full of weight – physical training that can burn about 400 calories per hour (depending on your weight). But if that's not enough to put on the gloves, people use the training and as an opportunity for stress and self-confidence. Go ahead – let it all out.
Fitness for Your Face
When you think about exercising your body, think of your abdominals, legs, arms and buttocks. The newest body part to join the party? Her face. The CEO and founder of SLT, Amanda Freeman, says that coaching your face, buying a face roll or purchasing a personal trainer for your face will be something more people engaging in 2019 become. And yes, there are studios for that. UK-based FaceGym already has studios in Manchester, London and New York and plans to expand further next year. Ah, the fountain of youth.
More reasons not to leave home
Whether it's aerodynamic exercise programs or integrated programming – like the new Peloton Tread or Mirror, it's the most insidious new device: the People bring their workouts home like never before.
Corey Phelps, founder of Cultivate365, says that with increasing demands of everyday life, home fitness options are the next big thing. "In our fast-paced society, it's becoming increasingly difficult for people to find time to train," says Phelps. "Options for the home, which also convey a sense of community, will only continue to grow." And yes, it's cool! Do not forget how you park in parallel or say "sorry" when you finally venture back into the world.
Prioritization of Recreational Training
Training and Recreation Like a Professional Athlete Will Be Much Easier In 2019, additional functions such as cryotherapy, swimming pools and infrared saunas will be added in gyms and health centers. Some boutique studios open with the sole purpose of helping you to recover – recovery studios have already appeared in New York, LA and Chicago, so your next forest could be next.
Lagree says people will do this Encouraging next year to include a good recovery time in their exercise program. "Everyone knows that high-intensity training will trigger changes, but what about recovery after such training?" Lagree says. "More gyms are dedicated to this aspect." Sounds like a lot of comfortable time, if you ask us – and as long as it is not BS, we are there.
Anyone can be a ninja warrior
You probably know someone who loves . American Ninja Warrior – ICYMI, where competitors compete (usually with an epic backstory to fall in love with) on the world's most famous obstacle course and test their physical abilities. And even after years of watching people fall on their faces, people actually want to try it out.
American Ninja Warrior gyms are appearing throughout the country. Inside, people can train with professionals to master many of the obstacle train stations that real-life TV series confronted. The facilities in places like the Movement Lab in New Jersey have plenty of bars, ropes and other things that can hurt you. Those looking for a different kind of "hard" full-body workout could find themselves here in 2019 and maybe one day on the show.
