This year has brought its share of challenges already, but it’s important to take some time to care for yourself while you help others and worry about the world around you, too. In this post, we’ll share some of the best wellness trends you can try this year to help you de-stress, glow up, and feel your best no matter what 2020 throws your way.
Veganism has become a really popular dietary choice, especially over the last decade. Whether you want to adopt pro-animal or environmental philosophies, or just want to boost how your body is feeling, going plant-based can make a big difference. But how do you make such a drastic dietary shift?
Easy! Vegan meal kit delivery services like Thistle enable you to do your grocery haul from the comfort of your house, no market lines necessary. You can even get feel-good foods that are fully prepped for fixing up a great meal.
CBD has taken the wellness world by storm over the last few years. With so many emotional and physiological benefits to offer, this non-psychoactive element of the cannabis plant makes for the perfect addition to your health and wellness regimen. Some of the perks you can experience with the help of CBD include:
- Pain relief
- Stress relief
- Skin and hair care benefits
- Boosted mood
How can you reap these rewards? There are several ways you can enjoy all that CBD has to offer, depending on your lifestyle, desired effects, and preferences.
If you’re comfortable with vaping, that’s a popular option people lean on for both CBD and THC-rich products, but you can also apply the product topically, take it orally with a tincture, or relax with a CBD bath bomb from KushQueen. You can even incorporate your plant-based diet while you use it with products like these 100% vegan gummies by CBDfx.
If getting a glow up was your goal for 2020, it’s not too late. Thanks to the influx of beauty products and treatments on the market, there’s no time like the present to revamp your skincare regimen! One of the latest trends to emerge on the scene is gua sha. By rolling pressure onto your face, gua sha helps activate the blood circulation in your face to reduce acne scarring, boost brightness, and even out skin.

2020 has brought a lot of collective challenges our way, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take time to recharge and reprioritize your well-being. While many of us don’t know what the future will hold for the remainder of the year, there’s no reason you can’t get started planning ahead.
If you’re like me, you probably take on a lot of your stress physically, and oftentimes it’s focused in the neck and shoulders. Cupping is almost like a massage, except for that it suctions and lifts pressure from your body, rather than working it out in a massage. This release of tension offers pain relief and flexibility in your back and other applied areas. If you live in a major city, like Amsterdam or Vancouver, you can likely find an acupuncture, massage, and cupping spa to give this trend a try!
There’s nothing more refreshing than waking up from a good night’s sleep. A solid 8-10 hours and your brain is more focused, clear, and energized than ever. But getting a good rest isn’t always an easy task. From noisy neighbors to distracting dreams, you may be feeling unrested and unhopeful. But with a few additions to your sleeping sanctuary, you can achieve this time-tested trend in no time:
- Blackout blinds
- White noise machine
- Aromatherapy oils
- New sheets
- A great mattress
Don’t let 2020’s unruly path get in the way of your wellness wishes! By heeding to these tips and trends, you can find a healthy routine that works for your lifestyle.
