Lifestyle Trends that Will be Big in 2021


It’s safe to say that most people are ready to bid farewell to 2020. For one reason or another, there is a general consensus that this year has been the worst year yet. Because of this, everyone is eager to welcome in 2021. It’s time to come up with your New Year’s resolutions, motivate yourself, and plan for the year ahead. If 2021 is anything like 2020, it’s possible that we will still be spending more time at home than normal. Because of this, there are many new lifestyles trends that people are speculating will be a major part of our lifestyles in 2021. Here are a few lifestyle trends that we predict will be big in 2021.

Working from Home

We saw a lot of people working from home in 2020, and that’s likely to carry into 2021. Who doesn’t like getting up, brewing some fresh coffee, and working from your own home office? Working from home is a great way to take control of your day and work at the pace that is best for you. For 2021, perhaps, set up an ideal space for you to work from. Instead of working from bed (which can be terrible for your back and posture), decorate your home office or a section of your home with motivational items to get you excited to work from there. Rearrange your desk and start 2021 with a new workstation feng shui!

Computer Entertainment

Electronics are becoming a more and more crucial part of our society. Since the 90s, digital avenues have slowly been paving the way of our future. And now, when we look to entertain ourselves, we look at our computers! Between watching things, playing games, or even creating artwork, our computers are always the center of our entertainment. Needless to say, in 2021, it’s no surprise that computer entertainment is a trend that will be seen everywhere. Whether you prefer to compete with friends by playing social media games, or you are master in esports or you like to have fun at roulette tables or blackjack at NJ online casino, know that you are super on trend!


No one would have predicted that streaming would be the way of the future just a few years ago. But with the invention of Netflix, streaming is the hottest trend, and it isn’t going anywhere in 2021. Expect to see even more major streaming services pop up. So, as we go into 2021, perhaps make a list of the streaming services you cannot live without and cut out the excess ones that you don’t use. Keeping order to your streaming platforms is a pivotal way to be responsible (and on trend, of course) while coming in to 2021.

Use of Essential Oils

Essential oils have become more and more popular over the years, as they are a reliable and trendy way to relax, help with a stuffy nose, and allow you to be more comfortable overall. The essential oil trend is not going anywhere. In fact, we see it becoming even more popular. In 2021, expect to add another oil diffuser in your home, perhaps in a space where you need a little stress relief. Adding a diffuser with essential oils to a bathroom (where you will be taking a tub bath) or to your office space is a great way to stay on trend and find a little time for relaxation.


2020 seemed to be a major time for self-reflection. Many times, with self-reflection, writing becomes a major key point, as well. Expect 2021 to be a year for writing down your thoughts and reflecting on them. Right now, our world is in a time of major change, so we, ourselves, will likely be in a time of change, too. This means analyzing our most intimate thoughts and recording them to review down the road. So, needless to say, journaling will be a big lifestyle trend in 2021.  

DIY Home Improvements

Lastly, we spent a lot of time at home this year. While at home, I’m sure everyone noticed a few things that they could improve on in their living space. DIY has becoming more and more popular each year, but now more that ever, working on DIY home improvements is IN! So, expect to take on a project or two around the house this upcoming year as DIY home décor takes over in 2021.

2021 is going to be an exciting year for transition and growth for everyone. Finding the right lifestyle trends, we will enjoy is important to finding your happiness and making 2021 your own. Get inspired by the lifestyle trends above and have the greatest time in 2021.
