Self-actualization is not always about avoiding or treating illness. Sometimes it’s a matter of survival. There are also those things self-actualization can help with that are not health related, including creativity, humor, and more. Peak performance is a fundamental part of self-actualization for many people which helps them seek meaning in life. If you are looking for new, innovative ways to tap into the ‘betterment’ trends for healthy recovery, try a few of these on for size.
The expectations around health and wellness have been evolving for some time now, past the point where people are wanting to just be healthy. They also want to become better human beings, as a result. The following six trends are just some of the ways people are seeking to become better, and healthy, at the same time.
In the future, look for health boosting features to be embedded in the surrounding environment. The world of health and wellness is full of good intentions. Intentions are hard to stick with, but everyone knows that who has tried to make a new year’s resolution and failed within the first month of the year. Rising numbers of people will expect health-boosting technology to help them stay on task such as meditation pods in the park or in airports.
The age of individualization is here to stay. Digital consumerism is at a peak for having it ‘my way, every day.’ Spotify lets people create a personalized music selection which seems to understand what they want to listen to. Diets, health treatments, fitness regimes and more are being ever more personalized which can help you in recovery by providing specific routines and concepts made just for you.
Virtual reality is becoming more a part of the culture thanks to in-home devices. Digital technology can change the way you relate to the world and help individualize your experiences for better overall health and happiness.
Rising expectations are that you will be able to get your healthcare personalized through virtual channels. In a world pressed for time, people want diagnoses, tests, and (yes) treatments via smartphone, public transit, and more. The more ways we can individualize our approach to healthcare, the better off you will be in recovery from addiction. There are downsides to having everything ‘my way, every day,’ in that we still need people to help walk us through the difficult journey, step by step. No digitized computer program or process can replicate the experience of feeling someone shares your story, pain, and challenges. In that sense, the betterment movement is merely a supplement to real, true, connection with others in recovery, and in (real) life.
