2023 trend predictions lifestyle wellness peaceful living all my favorite things

Which 2023 lifestyle trends will be in this year?

Which ones will be out?

After reviewing some of the top reputable sources like Nytimes.com, HGTV and Trendhunter, overall the lifestyle trend predictions of 2023 are expected to be focused on wellness, sustainability, technology, and the gig economy.

These trends reflect the changing needs and desires of consumers which is usually the case year after year, and these trends will likely shape the way we live, work and communicate in the coming years.

As far as I’ve seen, there is NO CROSSOVER between these different prediction lists….. which makes me wonder who will get it right and who will come out winning at the end of the year.

Which, has started me on a new trend of my own…. a competition for trend predictors!

This year I’m going to keep track of all the trend predictions for 2023 and come back at the end of the year to re-evaluate to look at:

  • were any of the predictions correct?
  • was there a theme? (besides my wellness observation)
  • who won the prediction race?

So, without further delay, take a look below at the many different predictions we came across from the top Google results and you tell us what you think – are they reputable sources that we should trust?

And……What are your predictions for this year?
