This trend looks at how we now fully comprehend the links between health and happiness and how we are even moving it from fitness and nutrition to balancing the mind and body. The idea of wellness – a more holistic approach to how we are and how we feel – has become cool. In the western world in particular, we recognize now how busyness had become a status symbol. We were always trying to outdo each other in how busy we were, how stressed we were, and how important and invaluable we are to our company. Work, work, work was the only way and fitting in every other important aspect of our lives added to our stress. Busyness is no longer a status symbol. We are trying to slow down, pause and refresh, so now it’s live well, play well, be well, and create the space to unwind and unplug
