Emerging Health & Wellness Trends Around the World

Written by | The Lens, Wellness

The world is changing. It is a dynamic place. It is globalizing rapidly. People are exchanging information, interacting with people from other countries, and traveling more than ever before. It’s no surprise then that health and wellness trends are evolving as the world goes through these changes. Not only have science and medicine improved, but awareness has also grown, and people are trying to be healthy and well. Wherever you live, below are some health and wellness trends around the world that we can all learn from.

Emphasis on Mental Health

One thing that has changed greatly around the world is how people approach mental health. Argentina was always known for its openness to therapy, but it has taken a long time for the rest of the world to catch up. Now, with the stigma surrounding mental illness improving and the ability for people to receive the treatment they need more readily available, there is more of an emphasis on mental health.

Online therapy has made it a lot easier for people to talk to someone. It is no longer seen as shameful to take medication for depression, anxiety, PTSD, or another mental health issue. While it will take a while for some developing countries to accept mental health as a viable form of wellness, much of the world is going the way of Argentina.

Stem Cells

Another example of a health trend that has become more accepted is the phenomenon of stem cells. Stem cells provide healing and regeneration for many different problems. It can help reduce pain and inflammation. It can facilitate the treatment of specific diseases and can enable the body to heal and stay healthy.

This research is done around the world, but Europe and Asia are the centers for stem cell therapy. However, Americans often go to Mexico for their stem cell treatment, where the research is more liberal, and the cost of the therapy is much cheaper. Stem cell therapy isn’t yet widely accepted and practiced everywhere, but it is a trend happening around the world that will help millions of people if it is widely accepted.

Wellness Retreats

In the complex, busy, and fast-paced Western countries, there is a big trend of wellness retreats. Wellness retreats are essentially when a group of people goes out to a remote destination where they can find peace, tranquility, and, sometimes, treatment. This is popular for busy professionals who need some quiet, but it is also common for people who need help.

Whether it’s a retreat designed to help people who are addicted to drugs, have problems with their mental health, or are working through some trauma, wellness retreats are a way for many to disconnect with the digital world and reconnect with themselves. It doesn’t have to be heavy, though. There are yoga wellness retreats, spa retreats, and weight loss retreats. These getaways have become very popular in the United Kingdom.

Sexual Liberation

When it comes to sex, history isn’t kind to the promiscuous. Things are changing. Not only are people realizing there is nothing wrong with enjoying themselves, their bodies, and their partners, nowadays it is much easier to practice safe sex and contraception.

The rate of sexual acceptance and liberation varies from country to country, but there are many places becoming more positive about sexuality. For example, PinkCherry, a sex toy brand based in Canada, shows that people in the country are being more open about their enjoyment of sex as recreation. Whether it’s Canada, France, or Brazil, many countries are opposing puritanical ideas and embracing free love and sex.

Mental health, stem cells, wellness retreats, and sexual liberation are just some of the trends around the world that are changing the way we think about our well-being. As a global culture, we are becoming more accepting of our flaws, obstacles, and history. There is always time to progress forward, and when it comes to our health and wellness, there is no time like the present.

Do you have a hard time taking care of yourself? Is it difficult to know what to do to make your life better and healthier? You should rip a page out of these places books and dedicate yourself to health and wellness. Once you do, caring for yourself in those ways will become a solid habit.
