From Mental Health Cafes to Recycled Exercise Equipment

By: Joey Haar - Apr 29, 2017
Fitness and physical health have been increasingly dominating markets and consumers over the past few decades, and, as the April 2017 wellness trends show, interior health has recently been making a push in the same direction. Even just a decade ago, wellness consisted of little more than the self-help book craze. Though such literature still thrives, increased interest in wellness has led to a wide variety of new products.

Entire brick-and-mortar businesses have opened up as a response to consumer interest in wellness. Mark & Spencer, for example, has opened a series of 'Frazzled Cafes' devoted to discussing ideas around mental health.

Wellness can be more narrowly specific for certain groups, too. The Riveter in Seattle is a co-working space to help inspire and support working women.
