Top 7 Predictions for 2023

Top 7 Predictions for 2023

The team of LAB325 prepared one good question for the end of 2022: “Have you ever wondered what the world will look like in 2023?” Well, most of us can’t predict the future, but there are certain trends that we can be sure to expect. From new ways to gamify finances to a new approach to dating experience and the comeback of analog hobbies, there are some exciting changes on the horizon. Let’s take a closer look at some top predictions for 2023.

New ways to gamify finances

The cost of living is rising worldwide, so in the coming year, the focus on financial literacy and education is expected to increase significantly. Gen X and Millennials are both expected to continue to prioritize their financial health, and this means that financial services companies will have to adapt. One of the ways that they can do this is by introducing gamified experiences into their platforms. This could involve offering rewards for completing activities, such as setting up a budget or investing in stocks.

The comeback of analog hobbies

As digital technology continues to make our lives more convenient, there is a growing trend of people turning back to old-fashioned activities. This trend is popular among Boomers and Gen Z. We’re seeing an increase in people taking up hobbies like quilling, painting, origami, and paper art as a way to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life. As these trends continue to gain popularity, we can expect more companies to offer tools and resources for these activities in 2023.

A new approach to the dating experience

In the coming year, the dating experience is also expected to change significantly.

Generation Z is looking for new ways for dating differently. Such outings as bookshop nights, museum meet-cutes, and aquarium adventures are becoming more popular.

These dating experiences focus on shared interests and activities, rather than just focusing on the traditional dinner-and-a-movie night. In 2023, we can expect tech companies to develop new apps and tools that focus on creating unique dating experiences.

The rise of digital healthcare

In the past few years, there has been a surge in the development of digital healthcare solutions. As the pandemic continues to impact our lives, more people are turning to digital solutions for their healthcare needs. This trend is expected to continue into 2023 as tech companies continue to develop innovative solutions for telemedicine, remote patient monitoring, and more.

We can also expect an increase in medical AI applications such as voice recognition technology and virtual nursing assistants. These technologies will help provide better patient care while reducing healthcare providers’ costs.

Travel by train

With the rise of air travel, many people have turned away from train travel as a means of transportation. However, in the coming year, train travel is expected to make a comeback. This is due to a number of factors such as improved infrastructure, lower costs, and more efficient schedules.

Train travel is also expected to become more popular due to its environmental benefits, which are very important among Gen Z and Millennials. Trains are more efficient than cars and planes and produce fewer emissions. This means that train travel is one of the most sustainable forms of transportation and will likely become more attractive to those looking for a more environmentally friendly way to get around.

New alternatives to talk therapy

Talk therapy has long been the go-to approach for treating mental health issues. However, in the coming year, there is expected to be an increase in alternative therapies such as expressive art, music therapy, and art journaling which are becoming extremely popular among Gen Z and Millennials. These therapies can be used to help people to reconnect with their emotions and to explore their feelings in a safe and supportive environment.

Expressive art, in particular, has been shown to be effective in treating a range of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and trauma. This type of therapy involves the use of art materials such as paints, clay, and markers to explore and express emotions. It is non-verbal and allows people to express themselves in a way that is comfortable for them.

Primal movement and anti-tech workouts

As technology becomes more pervasive, many people are starting to feel fatigued from over-exposure to screens and technology. This is why there is expected to be an increase in primal movement and anti-tech workouts in the coming year. These types of workouts involve minimal technology and focus on natural movements such as running, climbing, and swimming.

These workouts are designed to help people reconnect with their bodies and get in touch with their primal instincts. They are also beneficial for reducing stress and improving physical and mental health. By focusing on natural movement, these workouts can help people to step away from technology and to reconnect with nature.

2023 promises to bring fascinating trends on the horizon. It’s going to be an exciting year, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds. One thing is certain — people are trying to find their own awareness. Consciously rejecting the influence of technology in certain areas, looking for new ways of self-expression and acceptance of themselves. The improvement and development of social attitudes, which is reflected in the way we approach our dating and travels, is not unimportant. Humanity is finding more and more areas where we can return to certain origins, clear our minds, reboot our daily routines and do something with our own hands, or simply spend quality time with the people we love. People are becoming more and more aware of the value of their actions and the value of our time. We all are looking for new ways to stay healthy, happy, and balanced. The LAB325 team wishes you to find the best ways for yourselves.
