Health and fitness has of course continued to be a trend throughout 2018! We love it it’s part of our job so it’s great that we get to promote this to others!
There has of course been a huge increase in people wanting to live healthy lifestyles and 2019 is set to be no different; in fact we have been chatting to Qlu Health and they are predicting that wellness trends will continue to rise in 2019 and we completely agree with them!
First of all before we get into the 2019 health trends we thought we would tell you a little bit more about Qlu Health. They are new DNA fitness and health testing company based in London. They have such a great missions statement which you can read below:

In 2019, the quality of your sleep rather than quantity should be priority. Research into sleep habits has shown the importance of the hormones cortisol and melatonin, how they work in rhythm and balance to optimise your sleep. People will learn more about how balancing these hormones plays a big role in sleep and understanding your own personal Circadian Rhythm,meaning sleep quality and thus overall health will increase. Here are the top ways to improve your sleep:
Reduce screen time before bed.
Block blue light from your bedroom.
Use a sleep tracker to learn how your individual body works.
Reset your internal body clock by going to bed earlier – 9.30pm is recommended – and keeping a routine, even on weekends.
There has been a huge decrease in alcohol consumption in the UK over the past 10 or so years. In fact, Generation Z has been said to have the lowest rates of alcohol consumption, and around 10.6million people in the UK said that they do not drink alcohol at all in 2016.
As people realise the short and long term impact alcohol has on their bodies, particularly on their fitness levels, mental health and diet, going “dry” will be taken up by even more of the population.
Eating intuitively to get back to basics is set to spike in 2019. Intuitive eating explores understanding what your individual body needs –this might be through trial and error, feeling out what your body reacts best to, or through nutrition DNA or food sensitivity testing.
