The term wellness is now part of the popular vernacular, and is a trend that is going to continue being talked about, make no mistake. As we learn more about our needs, and the importance of self investment and care, increasing numbers of vital health-focused services are coming into existence. With the help of COCRÉATEUR, an event, project management, and business development service headed by French creative entrepreneur and yogi Julia Perez, here are 5 IDEAL types of wellness to embrace in 2020.

EXPERIENTIAL WELLNESS 

Wellness is not just an appointment anymore. It’s an event, an experience,and something that you’ll want to incorporate into your every day life. Fitness, beauty and wellness services are all on the move, expanding and growning holistically, and bringing the individual out of their comfort zone, both metaphorically and literally, in the process. We’ve especially seen a boom in Wellness festivals. Fearne Cotton is set to host her second Happy place festival the summer which is all about unlocking inner happiness; we can’t wait! 

SLEEP HYGIENE

As simple as it may be, sleep is one of the most common barriers to living a healthy and productive life. Stress, poor sleep hygiene (as its now termed) and increased work pressures are limiting the time we’re spending getting our zeds, leading to a surge in products and services to counter this. Expect to see an increasing amount on the market which encourage better sleeping habits this year, such an apps which provide meditation and bedtime stories, all rolled into one.

EMOTIONAL WELLNESS 

Emotional wellness will be one of the biggest focuses of 2020. The ability to express yourself and acknowledge your feelings is a huge contributor to positive emotional and mental health. Expect a huge expansion on the concepts of opening up and talking about feelings, particularly in encouraging men to do so. After all, it’s okay not to be okay. 

WORKPLACE WELLNESS  

The wide-ranging benefits of wellness in the workplace are finally being understood. Some offices are even actively encouraging an atmosphere of openess about mindfulness, meditation, yoga, counselling, and discussion of mental health issues. Perhaps this is driven by a cynical motivation; it’s not just employees who benefit from a happy, healthy workplace, but the employers, too, who enjoy plenty of benefits including greater productivity and satisfaction. Regardless of what’s driving the shift, it’s a welcome change to stale corporate mindsets.

INTEGRATIVE HEALTH 

Integrative health; meditation, breathing, visualisation and guided imagery all boost emotional wellness and promote physical and mental healing. This approach to health is a great complement to modern medicine, making it particularly popular with today’s health conscious professional. Go get it.
