Ok so! Yesterday I went to the mall.As I was waiting for my sister to complete her endless shopping I sat down on the bench in the middle of the huge entrance of the mall and suddenly started noticing how people follow each other in terms of trends .Its mind-boggling how one starts wearing a slipper with a pink bow, on another part of the planet and it slowly starts becoming a trend and spreads like a wildfire around the globe.Malcolm Gladwell in his book “Tipping Point” had clearly explained the reason of how trends are passed on from one person to a whole country.
When it comes to trends the one thing which I see every time I log onto my Instagram or Facebook is the race to get fit.Women with perfect bodies,detox drinks or workout videos you name it and it’s there.Military diets for 3 days or fit in a black dress in 30 days,It’s there for you and customized according to your lifestyle.Now this is what I call a positive trend which is definitely changing people’s lives.I mean I am one of those lucky ones who has been thoroughly effected by this virus I may call it.I did lose 12 kg in 6 months after the baby because of all those motivational pictures I use to get on instagram. Which did not let me touch the amazing chocolate cakes near me and made me move my butt on zumba to shed the excess weight .
This over all has created awareness amongst people and they do prefer a plate of caesar salad instead of a slice of a cheese cake .Restraunts have added delicious options for people who want or are trying to get fit.To motivate people challenges to lose weight in so and so days are put forward.Here I totally give 100 percent credit to the social media which gave all of us a wakeup call.
Trends are there to either create a positive environment in our society and then there are those which have a negative outcome.People specially those who have their names highlighted in the society have a great responsibility in spreading trends.Its Really nice to see many women who are no celebrities but are making their mark online to help others when it comes to weight loss or eating healthy.So kudos to all!!! keep up the good work and keep on motivating us to stay fit 🙂
