Every year, health and fitness trends evolve. The more new information researchers get, the more likely they are to find out what works effectively and what doesn’t.
For some folks, it’s a back-to-the-basics way of approaching their health: simple bodyweight exercises (pushups, pullups, dips, etc.); natural raw foods (vegetables, fruits, lean meats); plenty of quality rest.
For other folks, it’s all about the newfangled: high-tech gadgets; anti-gravity training; smartphone apps.
With so much to explore, let’s look at just a few of the health and fitness trends we’ve noticed recently:
This one actually dates back to 2016 when Arianna Huffington’s best-seller, The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life One Night at a Time, was published. Huffington effectively argued that, in large part because of our ever-expanding digital lives, none of us are sleeping as much as we should.
We have too much exposure to blue light.
Too much brain stimulation right before going to bed.
And that this sleep deficit is affecting our health and daily lives in untold ways (among them, weight gain, decreased mental acuity, depression and decreased hormonal production).
The solution? Simple: Make sleep – at least eight hours, and more if you need it – a priority.
Everything you ever learned about food – fresh is best; eat cleanly; avoid processed snacks; limit intake of sugar – is true. That means shopping the outside of the supermarket aisles – where the fresh produce and lean meats, poultry and fish are.
Now, “eating clean” doesn’t mean never indulging. It just means doing so in moderation.
