Top Health and Wellness Trends of 2019
This article highlights some of the top health trends in 2019. I wanted to shed some light on some of the items mentioned in the article and how I have applied them to my life.
Ayurveda (in Sanskrit means “knowledge of life”): It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential. I first learned of Ayurveda when I was studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I was quickly drawn to it as it hits home with me and my mission. If you want more info on this topic, email me . I have a questionnaire you can fill out to see what Dosha “type” you are.
More Sleep: A lot of people are lacking in the sleep department, especially new moms. I am learning a lot about hormones, and how they drive our sleep patterns, and circadian rhythms. I know that if you are stressed, or have lived through stressful situations (ummm who hasn’t) your normal hormone function can get disrupted, leading to altered sleep patterns. I know this much. Sleep is important, rather it is vital to our wellness. I take sleep very seriously in our house. My kids were sleep trained from a young age, and my husband and I go to sleep at the same time every night. We aim for 7 hours of sleep a night, and always have a diffuser by our bed with essential oils that help to promote relaxation, and sound sleep. If you are struggling in the sleep department, don’t ignore it. If you are curious about how essential oils can help you sleep, or how you can learn more about your hormones let me know!
Mental Health: Did you know May is mental health awareness month? I made it a priority for myself this year to bring my mental health to the forefront of my goals, because I understand that to be fully healthy, my mind needs to come first. I take time every day to focus on my mental health, and I also found a holistic counselor to help me navigate the grieving process. It has been amazing. I am a better person for going, and so proud of myself for investing in my mental health.
Body Positivity: Need I say more? I love that this movement is gaining popularity.
