There are numerous fads out there that proclaim to be the pinnacle in terms of wellness. But it’s important that we don’t experiment with ourselves so much and try and find the best methods for us. There are so many wellness trends out there now, but let’s give you three that are very popular, but also seem to be doing something!
Cannabidiol is one of the more exciting aspects of wellness these days. There’s a reason it’s so popular now, because the hemp oil provides all the benefits of cannabis, but without the THC-containing compound. If you really want to go down that avenue, you could go and buy grow pods, but for most of us, we can go to our health shop and purchase CBD oil for an abundance of ailments.
It’s been shown to help improve sleep, improve digestion, and manage stress – and this is just the beginning. CBD appears to be beneficial for the immune system, blood pressure, and even neuroplasticity. There is often some confusion and concern regarding whether CBD can get you high, but it can’t. If you have questions, an online search for “CBD high” should explain everything that you need to know. It’s a very versatile medicine, and it’s one that we can easily go and buy right now!
Fat For Fuel
It’s official: saturated fats aren’t bad for us anymore! And with the various fat based trends out there, from the ketogenic diet to bulletproof coffee, fat appears to be the primary energy source. The great thing about that is that it’s very cheap, tasty, and can sustain you.
If you are continually operating with brain fog, or have dips in energy, it’s worth making the switch. But be warned; the change from a normal diet to ketosis (fat burning mode) can result in a few unpleasant side-effects, notably, the keto flu. But even if you can’t get on board with having a full-fat diet, you can still get so many of the benefits of having this in other ways. So, have that bit of butter!
The cheapest wellness trend out there! Intermittent fasting has one hell of a cult following out there, and the great thing about intermittent fasting is that you can do it in whichever way you want. There are so many different types of fasting diets out there, like the 16/8 method, or the 5:2 diet, but once you get over the initial hunger pangs, your body starts to burn its fat for fuel, which is the preferred energy source.
Intermittent fasting is not just a way to lose weight, but it can benefit our bodies in so many other ways. It has been shown that fasting stimulates the process of autophagy, the natural spring cleaning process our body goes under, which gets rid of useless cells and can help to regenerate the body. Not eating has had a bad rap before, but now, avoiding breakfast and fasting until lunchtime is manageable for most people’s lifestyles, and it also helps to save you money!
As far as wellness is concerned, there’s plenty out there, but with these three, you would be hard pressed to find ways to feel better. As with any new diet or health practice, it’s always worth contacting a medical professional.
