2017 Celebrity Health Trends
A lot of us are looking for ways to improve our health in the New Year, whether it's eating better, exercising more, or trying to reduce stress and focus on what's truly important in life. While celebrities aren’t always known to give the best health advice, they can sometimes be a good source of inspiration when making these lifestyle changes. Below are three healthy trends that are the buzz for stars!
Though the thought of unplugging from social media and digital devices may seem impossible for all of us, occasionally disconnecting from technology has a number of health benefits. Digital detox helps you not only decompress, but also improve your overall posture, neck muscles, and every other part of your body.
There are different ways you can do it. Set up a physical alarm clock instead of using your phone. Go on airplane mode when you're working out. Refrain from emails until after you complete your morning routine. Avoid texts or using social media from time to time.
Sometimes, even powering off your devices before bed can be beneficial since their glowing screens won't hamper your ability to fall asleep anymore. Always have a good book or magazine available. This will stop you from just staring at your computer or TV screen.
Another way is by signing up for adult camps like Camp Grounded where digital devices aren't allowed (it's becoming a trend!). Without electronic devices, computers, phones, or watches, you'll find yourself feeling happier and healthier.
Healthy eating and weight loss are usually on top of your New Year’s Resolutions list. Experts often advise steering clear of any new fad diets. But there's a healthy eating trend for 2017 that may be worth trying: the "meal-in-a-bowl."
We hear about all the things we should be eating like omega-3 or omega-6 fatty acids, antioxidants, and healthy fats, but it can be hard to fill yourself with these when they come from different sources.
A good solution is to combine all of these elements into one compact dish. Christy Turlington, Tory Burch, and Chrissy Tiegan are all big fans of the meal-in-a-bowl. There are several restaurants in New York City, like by CHLOE, that are hopping on the trend and serving such dishes as quinoa, kale, and avocado all in one bowl.
Mindfulness and Meditation
Studies have shown meditation is really great for not only your overall health, but your cognitive health as well, including your memory. Oprah, Lena Dunham, and Barbara Walters are just a few of the many celebrities touting the benefits of mindfulness: a state of active, open attention to your thoughts and feelings.
While meditation is a big trend in Hollywood, CEOs and business people are doing it as well since they realized it helps with their work performance. There are some great apps like Simply Being or Headspace that you can use that will teach you how to do it.
