Due to the uncertain times we live in, old lifestyles tend to become the new lifestyles. From an economic, political or environmental perspective, the world could do a lot better and change is on the lips of many. Some people show a tendency to return to tradition and old lifestyles. A taste for vintage or the granny’s cookbook, everyone seems to be looking for new in the old. Some trends are more prominent than others. Read about two of these trends below.
The Inner Child
One of the most impressive movements that’s meant to revive an old lifestyle is called the Inner Child and is based on the love for vintage, be it in fashion, attitude or even hotels. Retro has become incredibly fashionable! The trend is also visible when it comes to reading preferences – adults reading Harry Potter, a children’s book – or watching TV shows preferences – the drama Downton Abbey is very popular around the world.
When it comes to food, the tendency is to refresh and reinvent old recipes. Granny’s cookbook, as this trend is called, is based on finding old recipes and re-newing them. Blogs are full of old recipes, written by hand by some sweet old lady making delicious food for her grandkids.
On the other hand, people have become more interested in what they eat. They want natural food and don’t trust the labels as much. More and more people have begun planting their own veggie gardens and have turned green.
Embracing tradition is perhaps the key element for reviving old lifestyles. The young Germans now proudly wear their national costumes, but a few years ago this would have been considered un-cool.
Have you noticed these changes around you? What do you think of people trying to revive old lifestyles?
