There is a new revolution happening that started during last year’s pandemic. Health, medicine, and wellness became central to the way we live our lives. Many years ago, no one cared much about being fit or being in top shape.
But the pandemic has taught being fit has the capability to keep us safe from adverse experiences in the world. It gives us a chance to be more resistant to the virus because healthy living can boost our immune system. It might not make us immune to the virus. Only vaccines can do that, but it gives us a jump start. It gives us a chance to have fewer symptoms if we do get infected. With these things in mind, you might start considering living a more healthy and fit lifestyle. Well, here are some things currently revolutionizing the new fitness generation.
Plant-Based Products and Meals
Years ago, many people believed that plant-based products and meals are a joke. Many believed that it won’t do much for us and that a burger made of plants is entirely impossible. It all started with the Impossible Burger from Impossible Foods, and eventually, it became an experience for people to eat. However, it never became part of people’s daily meal, simply because it wasn’t that good. But today, you can see that many people, especially younger ones, are eating a plant-based diet.
This year, the plant-based food market is valued at $37 billion, with a tremendous compound annual growth rate of 10%. The highest that the market has seen for years. What does this mean exactly? Well, it means that every food company out there is making a shift towards this ever-growing market and that there is a dire need for it right now.
As we all know, plant-based products and meals are easier and healthier to digest. It also gives us good fats and none of those processed fats. Furthermore, some plant-based products tend to be cheaper than meat-based ones, as they are much easier to produce. There are so many benefits to shifting to a plant-based diet. However, you shouldn’t rush to it right away. Take it one bite at a time until your body gets used to it.
Mental Health Awareness
For the last few years or so, mental health awareness has been increasing all over the world. This revolution has been happening for quite some time and is still happening right now. There’s really not much to say about this aside from a reminder that your mental health is as important as your physical health. Everyone relies on their brains to function every day, and a more positive outlook in life can only help you become a better person for yourself and others. If you want to be fit, you should consider being fit in both mind and body.
Natural cures and remedies are becoming a trend in many states in the US. Many of the younger generations are going away from Big Pharma and are starting to use organic products to cure their sickness.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and collagen are becoming the modern prescription drugs today. Studies are still on the fence on this one as no one really knows how far these natural remedies can help our bodies out, especially when it comes to curing various illnesses. But many are eager to jump into this bandwagon and claiming that by consuming these natural remedies, you can become immune to all kinds of diseases. This isn’t entirely true, and we don’t suggest you jump into this trend directly.
However, as more states open their doors to CBD treatments, we suggest that you give them a try. Some studies claim that CBD can help treat seizures and epilepsy. If you experience these illnesses on a daily, it’s worth giving CBD treatments a try.
Everyone Becoming an Advocate for Health and Wellness
The last trend on this list is that everyone is becoming an advocate for health and wellness. This is an overall good thing, and once you’ve started down this path, you’ll be bringing more people into this revolution. Eventually, once you’ve become more experienced, you can join nutrition courses for personal trainers. These can now be found in many universities and colleges. They can help you understand more about the human body and improve ourselves as a species. Once you become a trainer, you can teach more people regarding their health and live a healthier lifestyle.
The new revolution for fitness is underway. Many are joining this through the various trends written in this article. There are many advantages to having such a lifestyle, especially right now, during the pandemic. So give this lifestyle a try. You might never know. It might be the one meant for you.
