Wellness has truly never been bigger or cooler than it is right now, though it’s expected to become even more so in 2019. If you’re searching through the new homes in Chicago for sale, a move might just provide the perfect opportunity for enhancing your health and well-being by trying some of these trends next year.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of more than 85 known phytocannabinoids that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. It’s a non-psychoactive compound – meaning it won’t get you high – that interacts with the body’s own endocannabinoid system to help regulate memory, sleep, the immune system and other biological processes. While research is ongoing, many studies have already shown promise for CBD’s ability to fight anxiety and stress, help prevent insomnia, reduce inflammation and ease joint pain. In fact, a recent report projects that sales for CBD oil will reach an astounding $1.8 billion by 2020.
Infrared saunas are a new trend that are expected to gain a lot more momentum in the wellness community by 2019 thanks to their ability to provide a wide variety of healthy benefits by helping to raise the body’s core temperature. Cooler than traditional saunas, reaching a range of 120 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit as compared to traditional saunas which can reach 200 degrees Fahrenheit, they use a type of heat wave similar to those used in hospitals to keep premature babies warm. They can help detox, sooth muscle and joint pain, and provide a deep sense of relaxation.
In Southern California, where many health and wellness trends begin, people have been going crazy for a new type of workout called Bünda, Portuguese slang for bum, it focuses on toning, lifting and perfecting your buttocks. The class mixes up low-impact but intense cardio workouts on a Stairmaster with exercises on the Bünda Station, fitted with bands and bungee cords to boost lunges, squats and bridges, targeting every single muscle in your bottom. By 2019, odds are, there will be a class near you.
Marine Phytoplankton Will Be the New ‘Green Juice’
Green juice is being taken to a whole new level thanks to a new supplement seen around Hollywood called marine phytoplankton which is added to water, lime juice and sometimes a bit of raw honey. It’s a type of seaweed that’s been a vital part of the food supply for marine life for billions of years. NASA once referred to it as the world’s most important plant, with just two grams, or about a half-teaspoon, providing the recommended daily intake of a wealth of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as well as EPA, an omega-3 fatty acid.
