To be honest, the closest thing I have to a “self-care ritual” is my weekly$ 7 polish change and like, staring at my eyebrows in an illuminated mirror while I’m waiting for my sushi delivery. Unless you have all the time and money in the world, most people aren’t regularly visiting infrared saunas or taking eucalyptus scented baths or get regular Swedish massages( and if you are, fuck you ). Anyway, making period for self-care is about to be trending in 2018, and I’m SO on board. Any new excuse for skipping plans is astounding, so if I need to excuse myself from a group dinner to meditate on my couch for the rest of the night, I’m down. Just taking care of myself over here.
Nootropics are apparently these natural brain-boosting pills that were made by Silicon Valley pros, and they’re wholly gonna take off next year. They’re “cognitive performance enhancers, ” and they’re supposed to help with stress levels while reducing brain cloud. Kinda sounds like Adderall without the prescription, candidly. Supposedly they’re built with specific amino acids and stimulants that build your brain work better, so why wouldn’t you give them a try? I’m not resisted. Don’t judge if you see me popping pills with my cold brew at 8am.
There’s plainly an app for everything, so it doesn’t surprise me that there’s gonna be a burst of birth control apps in 2018. Period tracker apps have been helping betches track their menstrual cycle since the beginning of iPhones, and I’m plainly on board with more technology to induce my life easier. New apps like Maven, Eve Kit, and Nurx will connect you with healthcare pros around the clock and even deliver birth control to your doorstep, so you don’t have to stop by CVS once a month and wait in that goddamn line. At least in 2018 we’ll have to leave the house less.

I’ve never actually tried a nut-milk yogurt, but swapping almond milk for skim milk was pretty harmless, so I imagine this will be similar. I mean, yogurt is healthy for you, but dairy sucks for your scalp and everyone’s somewhat lactose intolerant, so perhaps we should all build the switch. I imagine nut-milk yogurt doesn’t taste like some phenomenal sugar-filled YoCrunch yogurt, but then again it’s yogurt, so how bad could it be?
Kombucha is literally the healthiest drink you can buy, and it somehow has some alcohol in it, so you can tell your green juice to kill itself. In case you don’t shop at Whole Foods on the reg, Kombucha is a fermented tea drink that is supposed to be amazing for your intestine and help fighting inflammation in your body. Apparently Kombucha is becoming more mainstream in 2018, and regional craft brands are making their own versions of it, so you can basically be a WASPy Kombucha connoisseur in the new year. We could be facing a year of specialty crafted Kombucha and a mini Kyler Jenner. I’m so pumped.
