5 Top health and wellness trends you should know about


The global pandemic has alarmed people like anything, and now they are more specific about what they eat, how they start their day, their daily exercise, their immunity, etc. Basically, we can say that people are now more inclined towards their health and wellness.

Doctors and health professionals have concluded that all you need do to strengthen your immunity it to take care of what you eat.
Many health issues such as viruses, sicknesses and others keep coming and the people with strong immunity and good health will always survive.

So, kickstart the new month with a resolution of being in good health and wellness. 

Below are five (5) health and wellness trends you should know about and practice constantly. 

1. Immunity: this is a word everyone is aware of. With a strong immune system, you have a better chance of fighting off colds, coughs, and other disease causing microorganisms. In medical terms, immunity is the capability of multicellular organisms to resist harmful microorganisms.

We consume foods that are injected, meats are injected to increase the weight, fruits are injected to bring the taste in, and whatnot. Basically, whatever we are consuming has some or other kind of synthetic chemicals used in it. 

And this has reached a level that now naturally grown fruits and vegetables are called organic food.

Our body is so much exposure to these chemicals that now they do not react to basic antibiotics.

2. Gut Health: Gut health is the function and balance of bacteria of the many parts of the gastrointestinal tract. Jessie Price once said, “Gut health is one of the most exciting frontiers of nutrition and health research right now.”

The gastrointestinal tract transports food from the mouth to the stomach, converts it into absorbable nutrients and stored energy, and shuttles waste back out of the body hence, it is important to human health. For this whole process, there are trillions of bacteria that help process food, maintain homeostasis, and overall well-being. 

3. Mental Health/Wellness: Mental health was a popular topic this year. And a number of people committed suicide due to the mental pressure they got, and the reasons were the loss of their job as well as the pandemic. People have slowly started talking about it, but still, there is stereotypical thinking attached to it.

It doesn't harm us physically, yet it is one of the most dangerous illnesses which many people are facing these days. Prioritizing mental health is necessary, now more than ever, because we have already lost the human touch due to the happenings around. People are living alone, and they have not got any emotional support when they crave it the most. That is when they start facing depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and addictive behaviors.

So, if you are going through it, or have been through it ever, share it with everyone. It will give the courage of fighting to others. And if somebody is sharing about their mental illness, do not make a story out of this or create hype about it. 

4. Drinking more water: We all know that the human body comprises around 60% of water, and for a healthier life, we must maintain this ratio. From our childhood, we are told to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Some of us follow this simple yet effective mantra of staying healthy whereas some of us don’t. 

Whatever the case is, most of us have replaced the water with alcohol when we chill out with friends, family members or colleagues at work.

Drinking water helps to treat kidney stones, maximize physical performance, aid weight loss, relieve constipation, and many more such benefits are there. 

5. Taking enough time to sleep: I do not think there is even a single person who does not know the importance of proper sleep. Yet, the majority of us avoid it. Let’s do an experiment, ask yourself one question: when was the last time you had a sound 8 hours of sleep? If you are still trying to remember it, trust me, you are not taking care of your sleeping habit. 

Not getting enough sound sleep at the right time can affect you physically, mentally, and quality of life. A study on medical interns shows that those who were allowed to sleep more make 36% less serious medical errors than the interns with extended work hours of more than 24 hours.

Also, short sleep negatively impacts some aspects of brain function, whereas good sleep improves problem-solving skills and enhances the memory performance of both children and adults.

Kindly remember to constantly practice all the health and wellness trends listed above for an healthy life.
