Social Silence
Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years as a means to train the mind to induce a mode of consciousness and awareness. The age-old practice is quickly gaining popularity in the United States, and this year, the new trend involves getting together with a hundred of your “closest” friends for some social meditation. Many cities are turning social time into silence time, gathering large groups of people together for some positive energy sharing.

Superfoods
We’ve been hearing about “superfoods” for quite a few years now, and their staying power is here. Many restaurants are altering their menus to include delicious superfood combos, and the ever-growing popularity of the superfood bowl makes it easier than ever to get your fill of the good stuff. Are you looking for something new to add to your menu in 2016?

This year more than ever, labels matter. Genexa’s medicines, for example, are non-GMO, USDA organic, vegan, and gluten-free and the packages are clearly labeled with these symbols, making it easy to choose off the shelf. Method makes cleaning products that are labeled as natural and non-toxic. It’s becoming easier than ever to find the products that meet your wellness, and social, goals if you just look at the label.
