Stress levels and mental health problems are at an all time high as people struggle to accomplish goals and keep up with the demands of our fast-paced world. We need to be aware of this and do whatever we can to bring balance to our lives. This week we look at the best well-being trends of the year so far.
We all know that exercise has huge benefits not only on our physical bodies but our minds too. Indoor rowing classes are becoming very popular with those seeking a different gym experience.
In addition to this, it has been said that a shorter workout is just as beneficial for our minds and bodies as a longer one. This makes life easier when you have a busy schedule.
Crystal healing has been around for centuries but is now making its way into the mainstream. Crystals are being used in a variety of ways and are becoming increasingly popular in the beauty and skincare industry. Apparently they hold healing energy and when infused with skincare and even water, we can reap the benefits.
The stress social media has on our lives is being talked about more and more. Our digitals habits affect our mental health and decrease our focus leaving us stressed out and anxious. There are apps to monitor usage that let us know when we have been on social media for too long. A detox from social media is definitely a good idea for a calmer and more balanced life.
