There seems to be a new health craze all the time. One minute it’s something completely random like the baby food fad many years ago, and the next it’s eating weird and exotic foods at certain times of the day because some health experts swear it does great things for your body. So if there’s one thing we all know to be true, it’s that most of us don’t actually have a clue about health crazes, if they work, and if we want to try them. Usually we’ll stick to the classic of trying to eat a healthy diet and failing, and trying to go to the gym but completely wasting a membership. It’s the cycle of health and fitness that we all try and get caught up in. So, why not think about trying one of the different health crazes to see if they work for you. Sometimes a simple diet change isn’t going to be enough, especially if you struggle to stick to it and give into temptation all of the time. We’ve picked out some of the best health crazes that we think you should be trying, so keep on reading to find out more.
The All Rounder
There are some crazes that target the all round health of your body, which is what you should be aiming for. There are some that are slightly more controversial than others, but are now becoming so more widely used. For example, the one that everyone is jumping on board with at the minute is CBD. It’s derived from cannabis but has no psychedelic properties, only the medicinal healing properties. It’s now sold in so many shops, both on the high street and online. Even in local supermarkets, it’s that easy to buy cbd oil. If you do your wider reading about it you’ll realise how much good it can do. From helping to regulate sleep, to reducing muscle and joints aches and pains. It’s a great, natural remedy that is definitely a craze right now!
There have definitely been some crazy diet trends, some of them hold absolutely no nutritional value for your body, they’re just out to help you lose weight. The detox diets in particular were a huge craze for a while, but people are now far more cautious of them than before. What you might want to try is a diet trend such as the keto diet. There have been so many studies that show the benefits of this, especially where weightloss is concerned. It involves cutting out carbs and then slowly reintroducing them at a reduced level. Those that decide to do the diet say it helps improve energy levels, concentration levels, and the overall feeling of the body and the mind. It’s a tough diet to stick to, especially in the period of cutting out the carbs altogether. But once you get stuck into the diet and reap the benefits it becomes a way of life. This coupled with a great exercise routine is an excellent way of looking after your health and wellbeing.
Classes are a great way to get into exercise, especially for those of you who feel as though you struggle to get into the gym and keep going. A class gives you a sense of comradery and it’s actually a great way of meeting new people as you’ll find there are the same people in the classes every single time. Plus, classes are just so much easier to get into because you can choose a class you actually enjoy. That could be spin, body pump, or even a yoga class. Anything exercise wise is going to be good for your body!
Finally, it doesn’t have to be the inside of your body to be considered health, the health of your skin is just as important. To keep up with this you simply need to have a good routine in the morning and the night. Always make sure you’re removing your makeup with a cleaner, preferably a wash followed by a cotton pad with micellar water. Then a toner, a serum, eye cream, followed by a light layer of moisturiser. This should be done morning and night, with different products to sleep in compared to in the day. Generally the products you use at night can be thicker because it sinks into your skin overnight. Trial and error plays a big part here because not every skincare product is going to work for you. We’d recommend giving everything a month to see how your skin takes to it, and then swap what products you need to.
