Over the last few years we have seen a mass of muscle building, hardcore HIIT and boot camp fitness trends. However, these are now being shunned for a smarter, more holistic approach to wellbeing that pays attention to the body’s unique needs.
This year, wellness trend setters are taking control of their always on lifestyles and applying a “microsdosed” approach to achieving realistic goals.
2020 is the year of MICRO wellness: Making Incremental Changes to Reconnect Ourselves.
Smarter integration of wellness ‘hacks' into your day-to-day life, such as using technology to track your sleep, activity levels, recovery and self-care, all help encourage you to reconnect to your health.
“The MICRO trend is all about getting back in touch with the way we should be living. People can quantify the effects of all of these simple lifestyle tweaks and make changes accordingly without having to go to the Doctor or sending bloods to a lab.”
Dr Frank Lipman, a pioneer and specialist in functional and integrative medicine
Discover three ways in which a new approach to lifestyle and activity will shape your 2020.
Routine Hackers work smarter, not harder. You will see results by integrating exercise naturally into the fabric of your everyday life using activity ‘hacks’ when needed. Why not forget the elevator and take the stairs?
Discover how small changes can have an impact over time.
Become a ReWilder and immerse yourself in the natural world. Tired of the urban jungle? Explore the great outdoors as a powerful alternative to sweating it out in the gym. Learn to escape to the wilderness for a healing, altruistic and self-affirming experience.
Find your zen through restorative exercise and self-care regimes. Whether it's improving your sleep patterns or a new type of exercise, monitoring your body’s response to activity or the environment is key to promoting peak wellness.
“What’s exciting about MICRO is that it fosters a positive change to our wellness. And in recent years we have increasingly had the technology to measure our MICRO activities effectively; like how small changes, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, affect us, or how long it takes to recover after exerting ourselves. Using technology, such as wearables, to support us can quickly give us a snapshot of our daily activity.”
