Fitness is not just about diet and exercisefor weight loss. It is a constantly evolving process where you need to keep abreast of the latest trends, be it in terms of trending diets or exercises or even apparel that works best for your workout.

Athleisure contributed to the rise of wearing leggings outside the gym, and now comfy clothes are making their way to the office. Basically, workleisure takes technical, sweat-wicking, and flattering fabrics and incorporates them into work, dinner, and happy hour-appropriate pieces.

Bugs are a cheap and sustainable source of protein, so don’t be surprised to find crickets on restaurant menus. If you’re keen on trying the trend, know that bug-based foods can still be heavily processed, so bear in mind what else you’re eating in addition to crunchy insects.

Fat to fitness band

Fitness bands are wearable devices that are strapped to the wrists and track your every move. These can act as a substitute for a phone when you’re out for a run and can be an accurate fitness trainer.

Indoor plants

Eucalyptus shower bouquets are trending due to the invigorating essential oils released when activated by heat and steam. Plants can also boost your mood, filter toxins, and produce oxygen.

Matcha made

Not only has matcha green powder (packed with caffeine and antioxidants) popped up in cafes across the country, but bakeries, grocery stores, and even beauty products have gone mad for matcha.
