2022 is gearing up to be another huge year when it comes to wellness. With technological devices paving the way for more advanced knowledge about our health and a huge shift in wellness thinking due to a global pandemic, health and wellness has never been more important. We are super excited about the wellness trends 2022 has to offer.
More and more people around the world are seeking out information and understanding the importance of wellbeing, both physical and mental, and are becoming more interested in ways to support essential health as well as taking it to the next level.
Here are the top wellness trends for 2022 that we predict to be big.
TOP WELLNESS TRENDS 2022
Forest bathing was one of the hottest wellness trends in 2021 and will continue to be in 2022.
Potentially fueled by the effects of the pandemic and the rise in outdoor activities in more isolated areas, forest bathing not only allows for more quality time in nature but also carries many benefits for the mind and body.
So, what exactly is forest bathing? Forest bathing is the act of going into a forest, or a natural area with a lot of trees and consciously taking in your surroundings. It’s about being aware of the natural forest around you, about slowly breathing it in with every breath. It’s about feeling its energy and stillness.
There are many benefits associated with forest bathing that include a reduction in stress, better self-awareness, environmental awareness as well as better mental health.
Even though adaptogens have been the talk of the town for some time now, 2022 could be the year adaptogenic mushrooms make it into the wellness mainstream. Celebrated and cultivated more than ever before, people all around the world are starting to hear more and more about the health benefits of certain types of fungi.
Reishi, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps, Chaga are all adaptogenic mushrooms with a plethora of health benefits from a strengthened immune system to reducing the effects of stress in the body. Incorporating adaptogenic mushrooms into your lifestyle might help you to significantly boost your health in 2022.
While it’s still quite difficult to buy these mushrooms fresh ( I only recently saw them at a farmer’s market in Seattle), they are, however, readily available in powdered form which you can buy from a health food store or Whole Foods. Always read the labels to make sure they don’t contain any nasty additives. I personally love this Master Blend from Om.
