Hello Sanity So Long Performative Wellness
When your habits and rituals that you adopted for a healthy and better life start to stress you out, you know it right then that it’s time to change.
Importance of mental wellness- AKA Sanity started gaining importance in the past year, and it has since been established that all we need is to be at peace.
You need to recognise that constructive self-care does not need to trigger your anxiety. It cannot be just another task to be ticked off on your to-do list, which by the way is always jammed-up.
2020 is calling you to gain your mental wellness mojo back and simplify your fitness regimen. I believe that social media is just not about to get a break, hence not even the pressure that constant insta scrolling builds on people. The pressure to engage themselves in performative wellness as a means of self-validation.
Wellness in 2020 demands you to take a reality check on what’s actually doable for you on a daily basis. Blindly following what someone else is doing or posting on Instagram does not guarantee positive results and there is absolutely no need to justify what you do for your health by posting on social media trying to gain validation from everyone else.
Falling in love with yourself is the first stepping stone to gaining soul sanity. Read my previous article on 3 step guide for building your spirit to understand how welcoming self care and self affirmations in your life will open the gateway to a healthier 2020.
Cleanse Your Mind-Cleanse Your Soul-Cleanse Your Body
Ayurveda may have lost its importance with the modern health and diet ingredients making entry into the millenial’s kitchen. Ayurvedic herbs and medicines may have lost its appeal with the modernization and beautification of the organic health foods and dietary supplements.
2020 calls back the age old tips and tricks that your grandmother used.
Just like Yoga made a renaissance in the past two decades, Ayurveda has already started its resurgence journey.
The Year 2020 is going to bring transformations in the way we treat ayurveda and its age old herbs and their benefits.
Benefits of ashwagandha, turmeric, hing, triphala and many such household items are going to gain back their long lost eminence.
Hormones Are BAE
The word Hormones has always been linked to a single term that is more oftenly used sarcastically- PMS. Which in itself states that hormonal issues and the health hazards that they can cause have only been highlighted for women.
By the end of 2019, hormonal imbalances in men is going to take a twisting turn in the right direction.
Just like women are starting to understand that hormonal imbalance can be the underlying cause of many health and wellness related issues. Men also need to acknowledge that ‘hormonal’ is not just something that only relates to women.
With a rising industry for at home hormone test kits, majority of people are gaining awareness about how every little change in our surrounding affects our hormonal health.
Year 2020 is going to transform the way people think about their hormonal health, especially men.
Workout For Your Soul
What happens when you don’t exercise or workout for a few days at a stretch?
You start feeling heavy and bloated, you lose your vitality and ultimately the weariness builds up on you.
As much as your body needs that zumba and aerobic cardio class, your mind and your soul also need to workout.
Yes yes go on and tell me that your mind gets ample tired at work all through the day, but that’s just like saying that your body gets tired all day respiring and digesting the food you eat.
Yoga has already laid emphasis on meditation and om chanting for training your mind to focus but what you need in 2020 is to gain fitness of your soul.
This is something that needs you to speak to yourself and activate your soul by giving it the affirmations that it needs in order to fuel up.
Complement Your Diet With Supplements
As much as those new fad diets may have argued that you can get all the nutrients you need from the food that you eat, it is just not possible in the time when everything is adulterated, no matter how organic it seems from the label (no offence intended).
Wellness in the Year 2020 will finally start viewing supplements as a part of your diet in order to gain all the nutrients that ideally your food should have given you.
Not just calcium and vitamin supplements, our muscles need to be fed with other dietary supplements as well in order to counter deficiencies in our body that we might not even be aware of.
Nutritionists and dieticians have started focusing on adding dietary supplements in the diets they prescribe and the Year 2020 will see a new face of the entire supplementary diet industry.
Keto Is A No-Go
A healthy nutritious 350 calorie meal includes about 30-40 grams of carbohydrates, while this notoriously famous diet emphasizes on reducing the carbs intake to just 20 gms per day.
Even though it can be an amazing way to reduce excess body fat, but 2020 is the year when people will be more comfortable in their own skin and shape.
Highly endorsed and publicized celebrity diets focus on getting flat belly abs, carved out shoulders and perfectly shaped body. And, that is something that we follow blindly without understanding what actually goes into the making of a perfect body and how all of it is just not worth it.
A Keto diet puts you on a great risk for liver and kidney damage, given the amount of saturated fat included in the diet and the stress it puts on other organs of our body.
Year 2020 is going to be all about getting rid of the diet mania and focus fully on gaining inner health.
Juice Cleanse Is NSFW
The myriad of detox routines have taken over the market and even though it may be based on the traditional beliefs that the body needs to release toxins, the concept still remains unproven.
The solidity of the situation is that our body in itself is a detoxification tool that is fully capable of getting rid of unneeded chemicals and toxins.
Among the many detox diets and teas, the most famous one is the juice cleanse which is believed to be rich among all the fruits and vegetable juices, and by the way of its design, it limits the caloric intake of the body.
It may promote weight loss, but fails to be called anything near healthy.
Year 2020 will see many new wellness trends and diets but this juice cleanse will be NSFW- Not-safe-for-wellness.
No matter what your friends or favourite celebrities out there are trying to reach their fitness goals, you CANNOT and should not follow the same. Rather- you don’t need to follow the same. Don’t let your fitness goals disrupt your wellness because then it will just not be worth all the effort and time you put into it.
