1 / 9 At-Home Workouts
With so many streaming workouts available at the tap of a button, working up a sweat at home is easier than ever. It’s not just fitness influencers posting yoga classes or HIIT routines on YouTube, either.

The WW app also includes a selection of on-demand audio workouts curated by Aaptiv’s expert personal trainers set to motivating playlists.

2 / 9 Purple Cauliflower
Why eat plain white cauliflower when you could opt for its more colorful cousin? This popular vegetable has been popping up on menus for quite a while already, but it will stay firmly in the limelight this Spring.
3 / 9 Meditation On Demand
Meditation isn’t reserved for the end of yoga class anymore. A growing number of apps have made it easier than ever to just cue up a 10-minute meditation, press play, and let your mind relax.
WW has also recognized the power of meditation by partnering with Headspace to offer free guided meditations on everything from mindful eating to stress reduction. You might be surprised at the impact that changing your mindset can have on your health and wellness goals.
4 / 9 Blue-Light-Blocking Glasses
Between our phones, computers, and tablets, there’s a lot of blue light in modern-day life. The problem? Research suggests that this type of light promotes wakefulness, which isn’t great when you’re trying to fall asleep after scrolling through Instagram.
If you’re sick and tired of being, well, tired, you might try donning glasses with lenses tinted specifically to block out blue light.
5 / 9 Cooling Weighted Blankets
Proponents say weighted blankets help them sleep better and stop worrying, but the heavy micro beads and fuzzy fabrics can be a little too warm during Spring and Summer.
To experience the calming sensation of weighted blankets all year round, opt for one made with a moisture-wicking, dry-touch material like bamboo fabric. You can even find weighted sleep masks, if a full blanket seems like too much.
6 / 9 Cold Fitness
Hot yoga and Pilates classes have become mainstream, but many fitness fanatics are opting to turn down the temperature.
More and more studios are beginning to offer cold classes, where the room is refrigerated to a chilly 50 or 60 degrees. The idea is that keeping the air cold will help you burn more calories and even focus better.
7 / 9 Sleep Tracking
If you still struggle to get your seven to eight hours of zzz’s each night, you’re in luck.
Sleep trackers are more accessible than ever, whether you want an app that works with your smartwatch or a high-tech pillow that tracks your every movement.
8 / 9 Sea Vegetables
Bring on the kelp, dulse, kombu, wakame, and arame! Mineral-rich sea vegetables are gaining traction in health-conscious circles, thanks to their sustainability and nutritional benefits.
If you haven’t tried seaweed outside of California rolls before, start with a traditional Japanese seaweed salad or add a bit of kelp into a stir-fry.
No matter what’s trending, maintaining a healthy weight is always a key component of wellness. Sign up for WW, Weight Watchers re-imagined, ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the No. 1 program for weight loss nine years in a row.
