In 2021, we're anticipating a whole host of wellness trends that go way beyond losing weight or building muscle. Here are eleven of the top health and fitness trends we expect to see embraced in the coming year.

1. Prioritizing mental health

In this day and age, it’s becoming easier to publicly talk about mental health and to find support, whether it be talk therapy, behavioral therapy, or private meditation.

2. Improving sleep hygiene

Maintaining a routine and adequate sleep schedule is one of the best ways you can support your mental and physical health.

3. Getting active at home

There are practically unlimited ways to get moving in your own home, even without all the fancy equipment of a full-fledged home gym.

4. Self-pleasure as self-care

Experts are forecasting that in 2021, sensual me-time will be widely embraced by the mainstream wellness industry.

5. Trying plant-based protein

Environmental concerns, health, and affordability are just a few of the factors that have more and more people exploring different protein options—plus, they taste good!

6. Experimenting with air-frying

We’ve seen air frying get HUGE over the past few years, and its popularity from turning out crispy treats without the excessive oil that comes from conventional frying isn’t going anywhere soon.

7. Setting boundaries around digital wellness

We’ve never been more aware of the necessity of setting healthy boundaries around our digital lives than now—and there a lot of tools and resources out there to make doing so easier.

8. Drying out

With so many of us looking for ways to bolster our mental health and immune systems, it’s no surprise the “sober curious” movement is gaining popularity.

9. Tracking your stats

Tracking your data can give you important insight into how close you are to meeting your goals—especially if those goals involve weight gain or loss.

10. Boosting your immune system

A lot of factors go into the efficacy of your immune system—eating well, getting exercise, prioritizing sleep, and moderating your alcohol and tobacco intake are all important steps.

11. Cooking at home
