Our lifestyle is dependent on whatever is happening in the world around us. Meanwhile, the world at large is suffering from a global disease that has, in turn, affected the way of life. However, that does not stop new trends and new ways of getting things done in the world. Many organizations into lifestyle products have been gradually innovating and implementing recent trends in their production lines. They have also prioritized the new trends and the new ways of what the world is like in the present age. The following are the latest trends in the lifestyle industry:



Doing what you do well and being known for quality is the driving force for many production companies. As a result, they are more consistent with what they call patterns and their business model. Besides, they are gradually increasing the close relationship between the clients and their suppliers; meanwhile, they aim to ensure they have their strategies effectively. In addition, the consumer’s data, which involves sales price, purchasing power, and sales rate, are used to determine the lifestyle of different regions and what is expected from their product in the marketplace.  While specialization also helps lifestyle industry experts canvas for clients who are genuinely interested in their products and services. The analysis of their results shared with the experts is used to determine their diversity and the core area of specialization they should focus on. Many companies in the lifestyle industry generate opinion polls to understand what their clients would love to have from them as the right product that fits their needs. It is the clients that dictate the kind of lifestyle they would love to live.



There is a thin line between a quality lifestyle and the opposite. Indeed the demand for quality lifestyle and products from the clients cannot be understated. Majorly because the lifestyle quality is affected by the products and services that are rendered in this industry. Customized solutions and personalization have also become one of the most effective ways the lifestyle industry has a solid grip on its consumers. Companies in the lifestyle sectors have realized that investment in the standardization of goods and services has brought a positive solution to the industry. As the consumers are getting more and more interested in this industry, business solutions and standardization have been implemented.

This is also the case when we talk about business solutions. And a lot of standard solutions have appeared to manage online stores, stock, financials, product information, etc. Indeed, the lifestyle industry is more open to increasing the quality of what they offer and how well the customers are treated with the proper perspective. Generally, business in the lifestyle industry has created a channel where their solutions can be very effective and dynamic to suit the clients’ needs. The ability to change existing products or services by this industry sector to solve the lifestyle gaps has also become the most exciting thing the industry has witnessed.

The year 2020 has been a crazy year where many people have lost some family members, and business has become so hard to open. Yes, you made it through the horrible year, and you are here to witness another new dispensation of what people’s lifestyle would be like as the year runs down. Last year many people found it so difficult to cope with the year and the trauma it presented to the world at large. A lot of historical events happened, and there are changes in the way we get things done. The changes were not only affecting business or movement but the generality of ways of life.

In the lifestyle industry, 2020 was shaken up by a new way of demanding services mostly done on the internet. The movement was restricted due to the pandemic, and many people had no option than to stay at home. Another thing that was observed was the pop-up of the novel pop culture, witnessed on TikTok. Indeed the year has held many lifestyle activities at ransom, and it was pretty unexpected what the world experienced.


What 2021 Hold For The Lifestyle Activities

As the world is gradually adjusting to the new trends of living, people, activities, and fun have been revolving around the new sets of rules, guides, and regulations that are implemented to help restrict the spread of the Covid 19 virus. Here are the top trends you should look out for in the year:


Mental Wellness And Awareness

Before the year 2020, the world has recorded a high level of anxiety, depression, and loneliness amongst many people, which has contributed to the suicide rate in the world. Coupled with the 2020 pandemic, many generation Z people have experienced more traumatic times in this present situation. However, to reduce the rate of suicide, anxiety, and depression, many people have been practicing mindfulness and wellness to improve their lifestyle. More so, the importance of caring for your fitness and mental health to help improve your lifestyle cannot be overemphasized. Majorly the times we are in have been troubling, and most people need a form of relaxation instead of bothering their life with other disturbing moments.


Sustainability Of Your Personal Health

Nearly everyone has their lives affected during the pandemic, and it is so evident that many people are at the risk of personal health more than public health issues. Besides, public attention to the climate crisis and other problems of global warming has been affecting the quality of lifestyle activities many can get involved with. In fact, the consumption of plant-based food rose to a significant level, showing that the trend of eating healthy and reducing consumption of junk foods would be continually noticed. Therefore, the Covid 19 pandemic has helped the majority of people to mind their health status and detest food that is processed more often.

The Covid 19 has affected many things in our living habits, including our daily lifestyle, what we consume, and how well we take cognizance of our health. Looking at the latest trends in our lifestyle, most of the engaging activities are done indoors. This is because health organizations such as the world health organization, disease control center, and other reputable organizations have warned about the dangers of being exposed to the killer virus. The world is in turmoil, and the only way it can get balance is that changes have been made to our lifestyle, and new ways of life have been adopted.

As a result of the Covid, 19 people are restricted from living their lives based on the remote method, which involves using technology to do almost everything. The use of technology has helped us work hand in hand with others without being exposed to the virus. In contrast, activities that get us together, such as education, socializing, and Covid, have restricted others. The new solution that has, however, been the new way of our life is leveraging technology. Many aspects of our life that include traveling, public events, and social gatherings have been on hold for now. While virtualization has been the only way, we communicate, interact and relate with others.


The Digital Connection A New Way To Our Lifestyle

Our lifestyle is only engaging when we relate with others, and this can only happen when there are physical meetings and social interaction. However, the pandemic has restricted this; it is only possible to create connections through digitalization. Experts analysis has broken down the emerging trends of what the remote lifestyle has been like. Although it took a toll on many people and took a very long time for many to adjust to the new normal, it has served as the bridge to our new lifestyle. Besides, innovative products and services were how the emerging trends of digitalization became much more enjoyable. There are new motivations that have been the sole driving force of how people see the new normal. Video games and other activities like online calls the virtual parties have become the norm.


What The Future Holds After The Pandemic

Yes, the pandemic has shaped the world in a new way, and it is pretty interesting to observe that people are adjusting to the new realities. More so, the lifestyle that has been in place previously would only become true if the pandemic clears out totally. Although the world is very dynamic and unpredictable, the effectiveness put into the measures restricting unnecessary social gathering is still very much holding. With that in mind, the new lifestyle we are living might just be the beginning of what is expected to come to pass. The future would become better, and we would be able to gather around to enjoy life the old ways, but until then, stay safe.

Today the lifestyle industry has undergone super evolution, and many of its products have also experienced a rebranding. Much fashion apparel from different brands has been forced to meet the required international standards, which is also a way to improve their production. The rise in economics, the standard of living, and the increase in the demand for a better life have also contributed to the need for lifestyle products. Gone are those days when lifestyle products were only dependent on clothes and other fashion accessories; today, the game has been changed to a new perspective.

Countries like China, India, and the Asia Pacific have contributed to the growth of the lifestyle industry by producing and turning out essential lifestyle products that are innovative and effective for both individual use and home use. This accelerated growth has provided the industry some new opportunities that didn’t exist before while the consumers are also satisfied with the level of services and products offered. However, despite that this country has achieved an expansive foot in the industry, more certainly has to be done. As the initiative progresses with innovations, consumers are also raised to the challenge of buying new products.


The Supply Chain Of Lifestyle Industry

The lifestyle industry is undoubtedly a dynamic sector where the supply chain has to adopt a means of balancing the growth and continually staying relevant to the users. The efficiency of the process can be somewhat tasking and challenging in the industry, but through innovative processes, the supply would be regulated.


The Need For The Growth Of Supply Chain In The Lifestyle Industry

As you have read in the previous section that the lifestyle industry is a dynamic world that keeps changing based on the consumers it serves. However, the continuous learning process of the industry must adopt the changes that are experienced globally. Mostly, it could be very tasking to figure out how the sector can penetrate the markets innovatively and how they can effectively cover the newest trends that are needed. However, thanks to the growth of new brands and the innovation of existing brands and the complex structure have been optimized. As a result, today, the lifestyle industry has reached different markets and leverages the best quality services and products ever known.


Integration In The Lifestyle Industry

The integration of the supply chain and innovative products through technology development has created a whole new dimension in the industry. Infrastructure and new processes have been the needed cover and boost to the industry. Although several factors determine the industry’s different aspects, the innovative ways of doing business in the industry have created a new holistic dimension that is meant for the 21st century. Meanwhile, integration has brought about an excellent competitive advantage in the lifestyle sector, which solely relies on the flexibility of the consumers and how they adapt to new products.  More so, the speed of operation and the satisfaction gained by the last mile users of these products have become much more effective.

Italian food is delicious. Creamy sauces topped with melted cheese layered on top of al dente pasta and crispy pizzas topped with flavorful tomato sauce, need we say more? While it’s a delight for your taste buds, it could mean trouble for your waistline. With summer around the corner, it’s normal to cut back on calories. But it’s not always fun. Until today! If you’re an Italian food fanatic, you’ll be happy to know that you can have the best of both worlds. Below, you’ll find quick and flavorful Italian dishes that will help you reach your goal weight.


Quick Italian Bread Recipe

Bread is a staple in Italian cuisine, served alongside most dishes. What makes the westernized versions of this delectable food noncalorie friendly is the amount of garlic butter we slather over the top. Don’t let that get your swimsuit hopes up. You can still enjoy the same flavors of Italian bread by making a few substitutions. Instead of butter, go for olive oil seasoned with herbs like oregano and rosemary. Brush it over the top of the loaf and pop it in the oven for a hit your entire family will love.


Easy Italian Salad Recipe

Salads are the perfect choice when watching your weight. The only thing you have to be cautious of is the dressing, making sure it’s not too fatty. Italian salads come with leafy greens, olives, tomatoes, onions, and parmesan cheese. If you’re counting calories, you can skip the cheese or go for a low-fat version. As for the dressing, which is the start of the plate, it’s quite simple. Instead of anything heavy, Italian dressing consists of olive oil, vinegar, and spices like salt, basil, and oregano.


Quick Italian Beef Recipe

Upping your protein intake helps you to lose weight by kicking your metabolism into gear. The best way to feed your body protein is to choose lean cuts like a boneless chuck roast. Ask your butcher to trim the fat off for a high protein and low-fat Italian meal that you can enjoy for lunch or dinner. To add an Italian kick to a roast, season with Italian dressing, pepperoncini, salt, and pepper to taste. If you have a slow cooker, plug it up in the morning for a delicious home-cooked meal that you can enjoy after a long day.


Minestrone Soup (Light Version)

The traditional version of this tasty soup dish is a bit filling. It’s filled with shell macaroni that takes the calorie count up a few hundred points. To keep all the savory flavor without all the puffy feelings after, you’ll only have to make a few changes. Go for a gluten-free spaghetti or even a vegetable noodle that you can find in most supermarkets these days. Minestrone is not only easy to make but also a natural vegetarian dish that most people love.


Meatballs and Marinara

We don’t want to down talk noodles because a bit of carbohydrates are a godsend. Just steer clear of stuffing yourself when it comes to pasta, as it increases the calories and has gluten, carbs, and lots of salt. The meatball is a staple Italian item but comes packed with cheese and usually fried before stuck in the oven. Dipped in egg and breaded in flour, the traditional meatball is a bomb of fat. With a carb-friendly version, you can stick them straight in the oven. Add enough seasoning to forget all about the traditional version.

Caprese Salad

If you’ve ever ordered a salad in an Italian restaurant, you’ve more than likely tried Caprese. It’s got thick slices of mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes, pieces of fresh basil, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. To give the original version a makeover and enjoy a better one to help you with your weight loss goals, opt for lower fat mozzarella cheese and increase the number of tomatoes. You can still enjoy the same dressing, adding a few herbs and spices on the top to give it an extra kick. Go for oregano, pepper, rosemary, and a bit of cayenne to amp up your metabolism.


Italian Wedding Soup

Italian wedding soup has savory meatballs and white bread crumbs. Together, these ingredients make a hearty and filling meal that mimics that butterfly feeling in the stomach. You can still get warm and fuzzy with this delicious version to keep that waist slim and trim for the summer months. Switching chicken for the meatballs and oats instead of breadcrumbs, you’ll have a delicious and nutritious soup that will keep you full throughout the whole day. Instead of serving with bread, try out a low-fat version of croutons that you can find in any bread sections in the grocery store.


Olive Garden’s Famous Salad

One thing that everyone can agree on is that the salad from Olive Garden is the bomb! The salty, crunchy, and sour flavors of all the fresh chopped ingredients blend together perfectly to create an explosion in the mouth that will keep you dipping back in for more. Pair that with OG’s famous breadsticks for your new addiction. To make it lighter, you should skip on the breadsticks (sorry) and go with a lighter dressing. To whip this up, make a base of olive oil and vinegar, and spices.


Antipasto Salad

If you order this delight in a restaurant, you’re likely going to get a bowl full of meat and cheese. We will admit that this is super tasty but not so useful if you’re trying to keep the pounds off. But, by switching up a few things, adding others, and skipping on the cheese, you’ll have a well-balanced and overall healthier version of this Italian staple. You’ll mix together cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, peppers, mushrooms, and other veggies and drench them with a light dressing. You don’t have to leave the meat and cheese out but watch your portions and enjoy.


Penne Rosa

An Italian sauce with a pink tinge has a mixture of cream and tomato. This sauce will change the way you see Italian food forever. It is delicious and pairs well with everything from vegetables to proteins. This sauce comes paired with freshly made pasta and topped with extra grated cheese and crushed red pepper flakes. While you can keep the toppings, swap the cream for Greek yogurt and transform the sauce into a creamy delight that won’t make you regret it later. You can still add pasta but make it a veggie or whole wheat version so that it’s easily digestible.



These days, you can make things that taste like meat that have none. Things like tofu mimic the texture and absorb seasoning to maintain flavor. They are tough enough not to lose any during cooking. Going for a meatless Bolognese, you’ll skip on the cholesterol and salt and have a fiber and mineral-packed dish. Plus, instead of plain old spaghetti noodles, opting for zucchini noodles, you’ll have a delicious meal that is summer-friendly and bikini approved.


Lust-worthy Lasagna

Lasagna is another staple Italian dish that everyone loves. Meat, meatless, packed with veggies, loaded with cheese, any and every version is spectacular and sets off fireworks in the mouth. The only bad thing about lasagna is that it has pasta, cheese, meat, and sweetened tomato sauce.

The traditional version has multiple types of cheese, from spreadable ricotta to parmesan. Almost every ingredient in lasagna is not calorie friendly; luckily, you can make some changes. Instead of ricotta, go for cottage cheese for a version that has half the fat. Try layering veggies on top of the meat to reduce your servings and create a varied meal. With these two changes, you’ll have a healthier version your tastebuds will love. Trust us; your thighs will thank you.


Flaky Thin Crust Pizza

Ordering takeout is easy. You can call in and have your food delivered right to your door. Ordering takeout is ok every once in a while, but it’s not so diet-friendly. When you’re focused on losing weight, takeout can be your worst enemy. Maybe reduce takeout nights to once a week or twice a month if you can.

We promise that, after you make your own thin-crust pizza at home, you won’t crave your pizza takeout as much as you think. You can mix and roll out your own crust or buy one at your local supermarket. Add olive oil or tomato sauce and layer yummy and healthy toppings like spinach, peppers, onions, garlic, and top it with a thin layer of cheese.


Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant is a yummy vegetable that takes in the texture of meat when breaded and baked. While popular Italian restaurants will place eggplant atop a bed of pasta, you can make a more waist-friendly version and skip that. Plus, instead of breading eggplant with a mixture of flour and egg, sprinkle with seasoning and a few breadcrumbs and pop them in the oven. They will take on the same texture without all of the added calories. Make a savory tomato sauce seasoned with herbs and spices. Then, top your baked and breaded eggplant with the sauce, and voila!


Pasta Carbonara

Carbonara has the following: bacon, cream, cheese, egg, and pasta. It doesn’t take a dietician to realize what’s wrong with this dish. The overabundance of flavor, fat, and creamy goodness makes it addicting. Making a few substitutions, you can keep the same flavors but enjoy a healthier version that you’ll be excited to make for dinner. Subbing bacon for turkey bacon and pasta for a whole wheat version, you can enjoy the flavors and savor the same sensations. Plus, add a little less cheese and watch your portions so that you can enjoy this dish more often.



Just because you’re trying to drop a few pounds doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a yummy dessert time or two. Tiramisu is an Italian classic with layered ladyfingers dipped in espresso and topped with cream. Not so good for weight loss, right? Well, you can still enjoy the coffee-infused classic by making a few changes. Change the sugar for honey and use ricotta instead of mascarpone cheese to have the same creamy sensation without all the calories. Also, to control your portions (trust us, you need to hear this!), try making tiramisu in muffin pans instead of a cake pan. Then, you can enjoy a sweet treat a bit at a time. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?


Holy Cannoli

The cannoli is an Italian pastry that gets its fame from the crunchy outside and creamy inside. Think of it as the Italian doughnut, sweet, savory, and irresistible. The original version is deep-fried in oil and stuffed with a creamy filling made from the sweetened cream cheese. You can make a healthier version that has the same finger-licking sensation without all the calories. All you’ll have to do is coat the cannoli with a bit of olive oil and fill it with a creamy and light whip sweetened with honey, and pop them into the oven. All we have left to say is yum.



The light and fluffy texture of Zabaglione gives it a rep for a light dessert. However, look up the ingredients, and you’ll find that it takes egg yolks and tons of sugar to make this airy and fluffy dessert. You can whip up the same texture with a little less sugar and add strawberries or other fruits for a healthier version and enjoy the same lovely texture and great taste.


Swap Don’t Stop

Just because you want to lose weight doesn’t mean you have to stop living your best life. Savor all the gifts of Italian cuisine while keeping yourself in line to strut your stuff this summer. Enjoy!

Despite just breaking into the top five, Kylie Kenner is probably the biggest celebrity Instagram ever created. She used to hold the top spot for the most-liked Instagram post but was beaten shortly after by the picture of an egg, the account being called ‘World Record Egg’. Her account focuses mainly on her work and personal life, with lots of photos with her partner and her baby.

A regular contender for the most-liked Instagram posts list, musician and actor Selena Gomez is 6th on the list of most followed Instagrammers. Her account is more or less like Ariana Grande’s, with the usual pop star fare of selfies, pictures of her at events, photos of her with friends, but also includes a few political posts around subjects such as women’s rights and freedom of speech.
