Let’s face the truth here: it’s trendy to call things trendy… but the word itself doesn’t mean much anymore.
Whether it’s a perm or a new way to wear your pants, most trends come and go with no real recourse for the bigger picture. Luckily, doing good for our bodies and minds is taking a different path and the trajectory for this decade is looking stellar for all things health related. In a world where a huge chunk of what we eat is processed to death, it’s easy to feel sluggish.
Let us not forget that we have to pay more money just to buy produce that’s free of pesticides…
Although it takes a lot of effort to avoid foods that aren’t good for your body, it seems the world is facilitating a new consciousness for the health of both the body and the mind.
Commonly sought-after products are ones that support a variety of brain functions:
As well as many foods that support a healthy body, with the following attributes:
In Summary: People Want to Feel Good.
One can imagine that decades of food industry deception, clever wording, and hidden toxins are finally catching up to us.
It’s become “cool” to go on a juice cleanse or show off your homemade kale smoothie on social media. It feels silly, but in the big picture, this just goes to show that people are focused on positive change, in any form.
There’s another aspect of health that has made headlines this past year: financial health, specifically as it relates to investing.
According to the Wall Street Journal, an astonishing 19.5% of equities were traded by retail investors in 2020.
The amount of them in 2019? About 15%.
Since 2010, the amount of retail investors has doubled, with the biggest jump being 2019-2020.
Devin Ryan, equity research analyst at JMP Securities estimated that about 10 million new brokerage accounts were opened by retail investors in 2020.
“Last year created the ‘perfect storm’ for investing,” Ryan wrote. “The brokerage industry moved toward zero on commission rates late in 2019, making it less expensive to invest, and there was an “unprecedented backdrop created by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The Writing is On the Wall
It appears that we are collectively learning the importance of investing earlier and earlier, as information becomes more accessible for all people. The barrier to entry has been lowered, and now we’re ready to get our feet wet in the world of equities.
We are in a society that is constantly working to improve its physical, mental, and financial health, and companies that we look at are actively working to find new, novel ways to make this happen.
Long are the days when wealth and health were in disharmony. Indulgence (of all sorts) by the wealthy was rampant in past decades, with heavy foods, wine, whisky, and cigars becoming a staple in the diet of a majority of successful business people.
Fast forward to 2021, where the lucrative securities market is full of environmentally friendly, plant-based companies, all with missions to maintain the health of the earth, and the betterment of our bodies and minds. Fitness memberships are all the rage and people are taking to holistic treatments and remedies to improve themselves alongside the health of their bank accounts.
