New year - new ambitions. Does your new year resolutions revolve around health and exercise? In that case you are not alone. Keep reading for a list of some of the hottest health trends of 2017.   


Anti-inflammatory food

People are becoming more and more aware of the effects that food has in our bodies. Food that helps reducing anti-inflammatory processes are rapidly gaining ground and are said to be able to reduce a number of symptoms. Cauliflower rice and “zoodles” (“noodles” made from zucchini) are just a few examples of alternatives to foods containing gluten and lactose. The fact that Starbucks recently launched the new, anti-inflammatory beverage Chile Mocha speaks for itself.  

Vegetarian protein replaces meat

We all know that proteins are crucial for our bodies, but the days that this made us order a big fat steak for lunch are over. The consumption of proteins made from for example peas and hemp is constantly rising, and as new delicious products are rapidly being developed, it’s no longer just the vegetarians who opt for the veggie-burgers. Green is good!


“Stop smoking”-retreats

Giving up cigarettes in the middle of a stressful and busy daily life is more that many people can handle on their own. Now we see an increasing number of spas offering retreats and stays for smokers who want to quit, including everything from treatments and therapy to counseling and exercise.

More mindfulness

Burnout and stress-related diseases are increasingly becoming a problem. 2017 will be the year when many businesses start incorporating meditation and mindfulness exercises into the routines and education of their employees, in order to prevent people from feeling bad and overwhelmed.


Spa for families

Spas and retreats has long been the domaine of grownups, but that is starting to change - there might not be need to book a babysitter for you next spa-trip. An increasing number of spas are offering activities and treatments that cater to the whole family, allowing even the youngest to partake in the wellness. And when you think of it, it makes perfect sense - who would possibly be able to enjoy a mud-bath more than small children?
