We can all stand to practice a bit more self-care, right? But who has the time?! Between work and the kids and the house and just life in general, we tend to put ourselves way at the bottom of our lists. Sure, we want to sleep more and eat better and work out and take better care of our skin. But there are only so many hours in the day, and too many of them are devoted to everyone else. If one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2019 is to do better for yourself, GOOD FOR YOU. You deserve it. And it seems like plenty of people have the same idea, if these health and wellness trends for next year are any indication.

Pinterest is reporting that health and wellness trends in 2019 are all about self-care and living our best lives.

If there was one area of your life you could change that would have the most drastic effect, it would probably be your diet, right? Eating healthy isn’t as easy as it looks, but it’s so important. But you’re not alone! Searches for nutrition plans are up 475% on Pinterest, proving that eating well is topping everyone’s list next year. In more surprising news, one of the health and wellness trends Pinterest is calling in 2019 is ditching the booze – there’s been an astonishing 746% increase in searches for sober living ideas and motivational quotes.

2019 is also shaping up to be the year people commit to being more Earth-friendly. Ditch those Ziploc bags and plastic wrap for more eco-friendly options like reusable containers and beeswax wraps (up 146% on Pinterest).

When it comes to YOU, these health and wellness trends will help you feel your best.

Move over, retinol – Pinterest is reporting a 275% increase in searches for bakuchiol, a natural, gentler alternative to the harsh retinol we’ve all been using. Make clear skin a priority and get on this train! If you haven’t been using elderberries to keep you healthy all year long, who even are you?! Apparently, more and more people are catching on to the benefits of elderberries, and they’re going to be big next year.

Health and wellness trends in 2019 show that people are putting sleep back on their to-do lists, and they’re going to be trying lots of different ways to make it happen (sleep optimization searches are up 116%). And when you don’t have time to go to the gym, get yourself a pair of stretch bands in 2019 and bring the gym to you. You won’t be the only one, if the 1913% increase in Pinterest searches for band workouts is any clue.

Health and wellness trends in 2019 are all about helping you look and feel your best. Will we do them all? Unlikely. Can we commit to at least one or two? Most definitely. We’re worth it, guys!
