Here's What Wellness Trend to Try This Year, According to Your Myers & Briggs Type

Everywhere you look these days, you’ll find a hot new wellness trend to try. The wellness industry is predicted to be worth around seven trillion dollars by 2025, and people are more invested in health than ever, so it’s no surprise that innovative trends keep popping up. But with so many options, how do you know which one is the right fit for you? Read on to find out! 

ISTJ: Mood improver apps

ISTJs are practical people who put work before play and like to do things properly. Someone has to dot the i’s and cross the t’s, right? Although this makes you reliable, it can also cause you stress. That’s why, for you, a mood improver app like MoodKit could be a great investment. These apps help you identify unhealthy thoughts and offer management tools based on cognitive behavioral therapy to keep your stress under control. 

ISTP: Mini meditation

ISTPs thrive on having new experiences, whether it’s trying the new Thai restaurant in town or taking a dance class to work off all that excess energy. You’re not the most patient type and struggle with waiting around! To help you find your zen, try mini meditations. You can do these in just a few minutes, like when you’re stuck in traffic on the way to work. The benefits include lower stress, greater focus, and more restful sleep.

ISFJ: Crystal healing

You’re generous and warm-hearted, ISFJ, and likely the person everyone in your social circle turns to. But it’s easy to put yourself on ice. Remember your worth by spoiling yourself with a special type of spa treatment. Crystal healing, one of the year’s hottest trends, places stones at the energy centers of the body to manifest clarity, relieve stress and restore harmony and balance. So book a crystal massage with stones like rose quartz to infuse yourself with self-love. 

ISFP: Sound healing 

ISFPs are creative and easy going. You go with the flow and live in the moment but sometimes struggle to remain organized with your plans. That’s why sound healing should be at the top of your wellness list. Sound healing uses frequencies to influence your brainwaves, helping you reach a meditative state. It enhances clarity, which can help you bring those long-term plans to life.

INFJ: Sleep syncing

INFJs are many things – both creative and analytical; compassionate while being excellent problem-solvers. Sometimes, you rush from one project to another and lose sleep because you’re pulled in many directions and depend on coffee to get through the day. To improve your sleep, try sleep syncing. This is when you set a schedule for when you go to sleep every night to train your brain to know when you should be sleepy. It should give you much more energy to get through your day.

INFP: Yoga retreat

As an INFP personality, your number one goal is to make your own dreams come true while encouraging others to live their best lives. Since you can sometimes be overwhelmed by your intense feelings and passionate relationships, breaking away from them can be helpful. A yoga retreat, in which you escape your life for a bit and focus on centering yourself, can help you slow down your thoughts and gain more self-reflection about big decisions.

INTJ: Forest bathing 

INTJs are fiercely independent innovators who find motivation from within, making you a force to be reckoned with. But sometimes, you can get stuck in the action. For you, forest bathing is good because it takes you out into nature. Look at the trees, focus on your inner feelings, and relax. Taking time to rest is just as important as achieving your to-do list, and it makes the road to success more enjoyable.

INTP: Multisensory yoga 

INTPs are quite content to live in their inner world but your lack of connection with others can put you at a disadvantage. Joining a multisensory yoga class is a great option for you because it can help you engage your senses while interacting with others in a calming space. Multisensory yoga combines sound, sight and smell to make it more immersive. So, for example, you might do yoga in nature while Tibetan singing bowls play healing sounds. 

ESTP: Cold plunge 

Being around others fuels your energy, ESTP, and you’re also a thrill seeker. Wellness trends that require you to be still might not be adventurous enough for you. So – try a cold plunge! Submerging yourself in cold water that’s 59 degrees Fahrenheit or less has various health benefits, like boosting your norepinephrine neurotransmitter that’s associated with attention and mood. So, you’ll feel calmer and happier, and have less anxiety, while getting the rush you crave.

ESTJ: Skychology  

You’re one of life’s great organizers, ESTJ, and you love doing things in a certain way. But you can be stubborn at times. It can be helpful for you to practice being more flexible and getting more in tune with your feelings so you can process them instead of hiding them. Try Skychology, a super-simple wellbeing trend that has you go out into nature and look up at the sky. It sounds too easy to be helpful, but researchers say it encourages mindfulness while giving you a greater perspective on whatever’s stressing you out.

ESFP: Three-part breathing

ESFPs are happiest when surrounded by family, friends, treasured pets, and everything they love. But you’re not great at sitting still and dislike boredom, which you try to avoid at all costs. For you, three-part breathing can ground you when you’re spiraling out on all those experiences you pack into your day. How three-part breathing works is you take long, deep breaths and imagine them filling up in your throat, chest and belly. As you exhale, you’ll follow the path of your breath back from your belly, chest and throat. It only takes a few minutes and you’ll soon feel calmer and more grounded.

ESFJ: Sensehacking

ESFJs are loyal and empathetic. You care about other people, but you can get a little too involved in their lives and problems and a little too dependent on what they think. Turning your attention to yourself can help you to focus on your own needs. That’s where sensehacking comes in. This is where you pay attention to what you hear, see, smell, taste and touch and create the right sensory experiences that help you center and relax. For instance, you fill your room with plants and pictures, or reduce the noise in your workplace to reduce sensory overload. 

ENFP: Mindful drinking 

ENFPs are charismatic social butterflies and your party planner is full of events. When spending time socializing, it’s easy to wind up holding a glass of wine. Mindful drinking is the practice of being more aware of how much, when and why you drink. While it’s no biggie to get a bit buzzed now and then, it’s healthy to be present in your choices instead of falling into mindless habits. It often leads to healthy outcomes, such as better sleep and less anxiety, researchers say. 

ENFJ: Infrared sauna blanket 

ENFJs are great communicators and leaders. You’re the go-to person for organizing events at work or in your social circle and you always encourage others. But sometimes, you can be self-sacrificing. Give yourself a timeout! Switch off your cell phone and lie down beneath an infrared sauna blanket. Not only will it feel like you’re wrapped in a warm hug, but you’ll also get all the benefits of a traditional sauna, such as detoxing your body and lowering your blood pressure.

ENTP: Micro workouts

You are curious and playful, ENTP, and you love throwing yourself into new challenges, like the latest exercise trend. But you sometimes struggle to stay motivated. For you, 10-minute micro workouts could be the heart-healthy answer to getting more exercise! You can easily slot these workouts into your day and they're a great way to experiment with smaller wellness and self-care activities that make a big difference.

ENTJ: Rucking 

We all know that ENTJs are drawn to hard work and achieving goals. The downside? You can become too analytical or obsessive, pushing through challenges that don't matter all that much through sheer force of will. Since you don’t make time to rest, rucking is a good wellness trend to try. Leave your devices at home, strap on a weighted backpack, and head outdoors for a power walk. Unlike wellness trends that force you to sit down, rucking enables you to be active while breathing in fresh air.
