With 2022 just around the corner, we thought it appropriate to focus on the wellness trends we expect to see in the new year. Over the past two years, we’ve become more concerned not only with our physical health, but also the health of our homes (since we’re spending lots of time in them). As a result, there has been an explosion of products that address the air quality and hygiene of homes, as well as eco-friendly products to keep them fresh and smelling great. In 2022, we’re likely to see many more products hit the market addressing these concerns.

A trend that caught on in the latter half of 2021, but will surely continue into the new year, is a heightened interest in replacing booze with adaptogenic and alcohol-free drinks. Here we highlight several delicious (and healthful) options that have gained traction as of late. Sustainable fashion will no doubt see a continued focus in 2022. While many companies have begun making efforts to cut their carbon emissions and wastewater, it is inevitable that we’ll see a greater emphasis placed on ways to create clothing and footwear in a more sustainable manner. So, here are our picks for wellness trends that we’re willing to bet will be everywhere come 2022.

Monitoring your home’s health

With COVID top of mind for many of us, combined with spending lots more time at home, it makes sense to be extra mindful of your home’s hygiene. It comes as no surprise that many are investing in air purifiers and a host of other gadgets to stay on top of their homes’ health. Here are the ones our editors highly recommend.

Scotch-Brite Clean Scan

Touted as the world’s first consumer home cleaning effectiveness test, Scotch-Brite Clean Scan is a kit designed to check the microbial levels in the common areas of your home.

Adaptogenic and Alcohol-free drinks

Starting in mid-March 2020, alcohol sales spiked pretty dramatically in the U.S. and remained higher than in previous years for most of the months since – a trend attributed to the COVID pandemic. However, over the past few months, a reported rapid increase in sales of non-alcoholic beverages has occurred. With the movement towards consumption of adaptogenic and alcohol-free drinks, many consumers appear to be eschewing alcohol and prioritizing their health and wellness as we approach the new year.

Sustainable Fashion

In recent years, we’ve seen a growing emphasis placed on sustainability in the fashion industry as more and more companies come to terms with the high percentage of global carbon emissions and wastewater produced by the industry. As we look toward 2022, expect to see more sustainably produced clothing and footwear hitting the retail market as brands utilize more eco-friendly options in the production of their lines.
