What health and wellness trends will emerge in 2024?

The field of health and wellness is evolving rapidly, influenced by technological innovations, cultural changes and new discoveries in science and medicine. In 2024, we expect a number of fascinating trends that will continue to shape the way people manage their health and well-being.

What trends in health and wellness await us in 2024?

From smartwatches that monitor your health in real time to new approaches to mental health, in this article you can find out what you can expect in 2024 when it comes to health and wellness trends.

Smart tech on the rise

Smartwatches were one of the most popular trends in healthcare in 2023, and experts predict that 2024 will bring with it even more improvements to this new type of technology.

Wearable devices and smartwatches are already used by millions of people around the world to track their exercise, sleep, heart rate and other health measurements. In 2024, they will continue to add more and more screening features to alert us to health problems before they become bigger problems.

AI technology remains in power

Artificial intelligence (AI), which is already embedded in some healthcare environments, will also become an increasing part of our lives in 2024. We will see an increase in healthcare services using AI to interpret various outcomes as accurately as possible, and to generate recommendations tailored to the patient’s needs.

Scientific studies, not sensational news

Media misinformation will undoubtedly persist in 2024, but experts say readers will consume more online content backed by clinical studies and research.

The most important thing when reading content online or on social media is to check the sources of the information presented. We here at Dahna will continue to bring you quality news and information from well-researched sources on our blog in 2024.

Herbal diets stay in the spotlight

When it comes to health trends, we can’t help but talk about vegan and vegetarian diets. In 2023, in countries such as the UK and the Netherlands, around 4% of the population reported following a vegan diet. Thanks to an increasing number of articles mentioning the health and environmental benefits of plant-based diets, these percentages will certainly increase in 2024.

Prioritising social activities

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the devastating mental and physical health effects of social isolation have been observed.

In 2024, people will be more open to the idea of participating in different social activities. Activities such as team sports not only help our bodies stay healthy through physical activity, but also give us the opportunity to socialise with others and reduce the stress of everyday life.

Mental and physical health – hand in hand

For many years, physical and mental health care have been relatively isolated from each other. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many changes to this – there is now a growing recognition of the links between physical and mental wellbeing, and the need for treatments that take both aspects of human health into account.

Examples of action in 2024 will include frontline healthcare providers, such as primary care physicians, increasingly spotting the ways in which mental health issues can impact the treatment and recovery of physical conditions.
