Say it with us (and yes, we expect you to clap):
It’s a new year and there’s a whole new world out there.
Folks, we’ve made it through a global economic recession, pandemic containment, tons of power outages, water issues, and other events across the country that have been hard to process. Interestingly, while these events were things we triumphed through… they also shaped the world and influenced what might be in store for us.
So let’s take a look at the top lifestyle trends set to rock 2023.
Become a better you
Who hasn’t spent a bit of the lockdowns caused by the pandemic pursuing their hobbies and honing their skills? During that time, people discovered what they really enjoyed and were good at, and many went even further… taking online courses, mastering exotic cuisines, learning a foreign language, or adding a musical instrument to their repertoire.
Well, in 2023 we will see more of this trend. If you want to be the best you can be, take this as a sign. Do it!
go out, go out
Call it the lockdowns that forced us indoors for weeks or the stress of working our way out of the economic chaos that followed, but the last 2 years have given us a greater appreciation for getting outside in nature. For some it was about going on a day hike in search of lighter pastures, but we’re hearing from others who really take it to the extreme by camping for several months.
Aside from more people getting out into nature, part of this trend in 2023 will also see more families moving to rural areas to escape the rising costs of city living, and more fashion brands going camping/outdoor looks include in their purchase plans.
As the world opened up, we saw people travel freely again. But the reality is that number wasn’t as high as it could have been. This is mainly because so many have lost their jobs and business, forcing people to tighten their belts and do whatever it takes to earn an income. Now 2 years have passed and the travel trend that started is picking up speed again. We should even see parents traveling to give their children a global education after two stressful years of “pandemic this, mask that”.
So look, if you have a dream to see the world, stop hesitating. Speak to a travel agent today and find out what you need and how much money it will cost to take you places you never thought you would see.
As gyms, studios and classes closed due to the pandemic, walking really took center stage. Not only for sports enthusiasts, but also for people who just wanted to get out of the house. People who didn’t know that they enjoy moving their bodies and that walking in the fresh air is good for them and not painful.
Essentially, walking became accessible, and when the pandemic ended, it wasn’t just the sports junkies who strapped on their takkies and headed outside. It was everyone. Now in 2023, expect to hear more about lower-intensity exercise, including long walks, mat work, Pilates, and mobility exercises.
The year of yes
We’re pretty excited about all of these trends, but perhaps the social abundance trend is our favorite. Sounds a bit fruity, but this trend hinges on people looking for more social connections, new friends, and experiences after limiting interactions for a few years and potentially delaying dreams and plans.
The future looks bright and the yes to more love and healthier, alternative ways to release energy will be crucial.
