Finding healthy habits and new wellness trends is one thing, but sticking with them is a completely different story. The beauty of these four need-to-know health and wellness trends is that you will actually want (and may even crave!) making them a priority and part of your regular self-care routine.
Ear Seeding with 24k Gold Ear Seeds
Ear Seeding is a form of auriculotherapy which draws inspiration from the ancient Chinese tradition of acupuncture and acupressure, according to the US National Library of Medicine. Now it’s getting a little refresh and going gold with the newest trend being driven by the VIE Healing 24k Gold Ear Seeds. This trend has made it’s way onto Instagram with influencers raving about not only the benefits, but also how they are essentially another insta-friendly accessory that not only looks good, but makes you feel good too!
Somadone Meditation Pod
If you’ve got twenty minutes to spare and are in need of some deep relaxation, a Somadone meditation pod is your go-to gadget. This high-tech machine was created to help people who find it hard to meditate because their mind is running a mile-a-minute and the emails just keep on coming. You lay pad in a pod and are cocooned with colored lights designed to regulate the production of melatonin and cortisol, as well as the nervous system. You’re led through a tranquil guided session and emerge feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready for whatever the rest of the day throws at you! Plenty of spas in LA and other cities offer this as a service so explore what’s local to you.
Alcohol has its place, but regarding health and wellness, giving yourself a dedicated number of days (or weeks, or months, or indefinitely!) is a trend we can get behind. Just like a digital detox, removing alcohol from your diet has immense benefits. However, the key is finding healthy and tasty alternatives that will give you a mental or physical boost so you don’t miss the booze. From Komucha to broad spectrum hemp infused sparkling juices, find what works for you and indulge in a Cali-Sober cleanse.
Sound Bath Therapy
Therapy is an incredible tool that is available in many forms, from talk therapy and counseling, to more innovate approaches that use music and dance. A sound bath is one way to explore sound therapy that is primarily done in a group setting guided by an instructor. This is a great way to close yourself off from the noise of the outside world and have a meditative experience that comes from the ambient sounds created. Many people have wanted to recreate this experience in their own homes, and you can too! This is a great way to explore is this wellness trend is a something you want to add into your self-care tool kit before committing to group classes.
Give yourself a little self-care and start with one of the trends on this list. These may not be for everyone, so gravitate towards what sounds fun and see how you feel! Whether you find a favorite or end up shuffling between these activities, your mind, body and soul will thank you for it.
