Posted: 01/29/2024

The beginning of a new year represents a beautiful, fresh start. Many people use this fresh start as a catalyst for positive change in their lives. 2024’s top wellness initiatives include sleep hygiene, mental wellness, fostering social connections and moderation in caffeine and alcohol consumption. These trends can create a solid foundation for a truly wonderful 2024. This article includes simple ways to incorporate each of these wellness trends into your life this year. Read on to get ready for a well-rested, mentally clear, community-oriented and tea-savoring year.

Sleep Hygiene

Think back to the last truly excellent night of sleep that you had. How amazing would it be to go through life feeling that well-rested all the time?

Sleep hygiene is the growing global wellness trend that aims to help us all get a great night's sleep consistently. This is especially important as more and more experts uncover what a crucial role sleep plays in maintaining mental and physical well-being. Sleep hygiene refers to the set of practices, habits and environmental factors conducive to achieving quality sleep.

This year will see even more people devoting themself to good sleep hygiene. Positive lifestyle changes to this end could include cutting down on screen time in the evenings, having a consistent sleep/wake schedule, upgrading bedding, investing in a sleep tracker and winding down with sleep teas.

Cognitive Health

This 2024 trend is driven by a growing awareness of the importance of mental wellness. Many people are approaching the new year with a desire to enhance their minds, optimize brain function and beat brain fog.

This is a wellness trend that can be approached in many different ways. Some might add a cognitive tea, packed with herbs for brain function, to their daily routine.* Others might take up sudoku puzzles or challenge themselves to learn a new language. Beginning a journey with a therapist or other mental health professional will gain even more popularity in 2024 as people seek to treat their mental wellness with the same dedication and care as their physical wellness. Brain-boosting supplements such as lion’s mane mushroom and ginkgo biloba are also growing in popularity.*

Building Community

Building community and socializing will be a prominent wellness trend in 2024. After the loneliness and isolation of 2020, many have realized how important social connection is to wellness. According to the CDC feeling part of a community can help improve your ability to recover from stress, anxiety, depression, heart disease and stroke.

So this year, many people are finding new ways to engage with their communities. Expect to see more community involvement and group activities popping up around your town. Group fitness classes, volunteering and hobby clubs are all great places to start if you want to get to know new people in 2024. Consider hosting a tea party, board game night or book club if building community is one of your resolutions.

Cutting Back on Caffeine and Alcohol

This trend is driven by a growing awareness of the benefits of moderation and the need for holistic approaches to wellness. Cutting back on both caffeine and alcohol may lead to better sleep, improved mental clarity, and reduced anxiety and stress levels, so this lifestyle change is quite connected to some of the other big wellness trends for 2024.* 

Do not worry, cutting back on caffeine and alcohol does not mean that your life will lack flavor. Consider reaching for a comforting cup of decaf or herbal tea instead of coffee. There are plenty of bold tea flavors to suit everyone and you will not have a caffeine crash ruining your afternoon. Embracing tea as a substitute for alcohol can also support you in achieving your wellness goals while still enjoying a flavorful beverage. Tea mocktails are the perfect way to treat yourself while cutting back on your alcohol intake.  Making the switch to tea in these scenarios may help you feel more grounded in your life, rather than having spikes of caffeine and alcohol in your system throwing off your equilibrium.*
