In a mere few days, we’ll be moving not only into a new year but a new decade! Looking forward to 2020, we’re so excited to see where wellness is headed. Each January, we recommit to healthy habits to promote overall well-being. From healthy eating to regular movement, we can all agree there are must-haves when it comes to wellness.

But each year, new trends emerge that influence our wellness routines and buying habits. In recent years, we’ve seen technology change the wellness game and social media highlight a more holistic and encompassing approach to our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. As a result, there are wellness trends that have emerged, that we’ve definitely been taking note of.

Here are 5 wellness trends we’ll be watching in 2020:

sustainable packaging

1. Sustainable Packaging

Consumers are the driving force for all trends, and we’ve definitely seen that so many are becoming more eco-conscious and limiting plastic use. In 2020, we predict packaging will continue to take a sustainable turn, as companies come up with new ways to deliver their products in eco-friendly packaging.

flexible diets

2. Flexible Diets

Keto, Paleo, and intermittent fasting are all popular ways of eating that people have adapted in the past few years. But now, more than ever, we’re realizing that healthy eating and well-being should take an individual approach. With this in mind, we predict that diets will become more flexible in 2020, to accommodate individual needs and preferences for a more balanced and realistic lifestyle.

beauty supplements

3. Beauty Supplements

For years, skincare has focused on topical products. But now, supplements are taking center-stage. FromBiotin toCollagen toHair, Skin, & Nails, scientific supplements are now the focus to support your beauty from within.* This is a trend we definitely will continue to see in 2020 and beyond.

yoga retreats

4. Wellness Retreats

Let’s be honest, vacation time is precious and an opportunity to rebalance from our stressful routines. More and more people are thoughtfully considering how best to use their time off and as a result, we’ve noticed a trend in wellness retreats. Yoga retreats in tropical destinations and health-focused spas aren’t going anywhere! More than ever, people are realizing they need time off to rest, recharge, and prioritize their well-being. We definitely think more hotels, resorts, and spas will be offering health and wellness services to meet this need.

virtual fitness

5. Virtual Wellness

The rise of the Peloton bike, online personal training, and virtual yoga classes are changing how we schedule in movement. People are looking for flexibility in the workouts that fit into their busy schedules. So many apps offer virtual training videos and more to help you reach your goals. We’re sure we’ll be seeing more of this in 2020, along with other interactive wellness apps for things like meditation and breathing.
