The health trends taking the world by storm in 2020

  1. Avocado- the gift that keeps on giving!

Avocado must be one of the trendiest foods to date and it’s been on top for a while. As well as being delicious, avocados seem to be a great source of several different vitamins and are loaded with healthy fatty acids. Avocados are appearing everywhere on menus and in our home recipe books. Obsessed with avocados as much as we are? Why not check out the Avobar in London, perfect to get your quick fix! Dishes include Avo Bun Burgers and Avo-stuffed Lobster. Yum!

  1. Veganism- if you’ve not tried it, you’ve thought about it!

Vegan has been the word on everyone’s lips this year and will only continue to grow, with many opting for Veganuary.

The demand for dietary supplements is growing for many different reasons. Some people take supplements for the health benefits they have to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep fit. Others take supplements to try and avoid developing medical conditions and illnesses.

People also like to take supplements because of the elated feeling they get from them- people claim to get a boost in energy!

  1. Technology- keep track of those steps!

I’d be surprised if anyone reading this didn’t know a single person without some sort of smart watch or fitness tracker! They’re pretty pricy (with Fitbit’s newest model costing £199.99) but they offer a wide range of features such as heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking and it can even track swimming!

  1. Giving up the alcohol!

We all try and do ourselves good with a little challenge called ‘Dry January’ and I’m not sure who actually makes it to the end successfully? This concept sounds super hard to most of us, we love to have a drink either as an addition to socialising or as a way to unwind after a long day. But there are more people opting for this lifestyle and not just to save money!

People claim to feel happier and healthier, finding different ways to feel good rather than depending on alcohol.

We found these tips to help if you ever wanted to jump on the bandwagon:

  1. Micro-HIIT Workouts- perfect for busy bees who struggle to find time to work out!

HIIT workouts became so popular last year, but this year micro-HIIT will be the new fitness trend. It consists of shorter workouts that happen more frequently throughout the day.

It is believed that short high energy workouts several times a day will achieve the same results as a steady longer workout in one go. Making this type of workout perfect for those with a busy schedule! Check out some micro-HIIT ideas below:
