Pub crawls are being replaced by trips to the juice bar, and having fun at the weekend or after work no longer automatically goes hand in hand with drinking alcohol. The reason for this change, as with so many trends from California, is health-related: alcohol consumption is associated with cancer, weight gain and liver damage. To make sure it doesn’t come to that, an increasing number of people are refraining from drinking alcohol at social events where this would otherwise be the norm – and in L.A. this has even led to yet another new trend: the brewing of Kombucha, a drink made from fermented tea. By the way, you don’t have to be too strict with yourself in following these trends. Fresh green smoothies still are and will continue to be a very healthy option, your morning meditation routine in the bedroom will have a positive effect on your well-being even without virtual reality glasses and you can treat yourself to a glass of wine after work or on special occasions.
