As summer officially kicks off, healthy living is back in style. Everywhere you look, Long Islanders are enjoying the outdoors while doing physical activities. As you (hopefully) get ready to join them, check out the health and wellness trends that will be taking shape during the summer of 2021.
Fitness apps have quickly become a favorite exercise tool. Available in a wide range of options, these apps are affordable (or even free!) to download and easy to access on a mobile phone.
After a long winter of social distancing, mental wellness is a high priority for health care professionals. Today, men and women are paying more attention to eating well, sleeping well and spending quality time with loved ones. This health and wellness trend is quickly gaining lots of attention because it can influence not just mental health but physical health as well.
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a renewed focus on immune health. Besides the vaccine, there are many ways to boost your immune system naturally.
Practicing these basic healthy living principles can make you less prone to catch contagious illnesses and more likely to stay out of the doctor’s office.
Social wellness, which refers to the relationships we have and how we interact with others, is another one of the more popular health and wellness trends of 2021. It is focused on practicing positive activities, such as going for walks with friends and taking trips to the park with the family.
Social wellness is all about building healthy, supportive relationships while creating connections with other people. Enhancing your social wellness can help to improve not just your emotional health but physical health as well.
Although technologies, like cell phones and tablets, make life easier, they tend to be addictive. Studies have shown that too much time connected to them may negatively affect your well-being, like increased stress, disrupted sleep patterns and mental health issues.
This year, more people are putting down their digital devices to experience the outdoors, spend time with loved ones or pursue other healthy activities.
