Millennials prefer indoors

Millennials are increasingly staying at home more often. Night outs, dinner parties, sporting events, and other outdoor activities are increasingly on the decline among these youngsters.

According to a 2018 paper, Young Americans spend  70% more time at home than the general US population.

Staying home more due to Technology

Great TV content and a whole lot of options on the internet like Netflix have contributed to the rising trend of millennials staying at home more.

New Economy Apps on the smartphone make it easier to order pizza, or anything else required to stock the fridge. It's also less risky to stay at home and one can have a more predictable and manageable kind of fun, while being in control.

Staying home for Self-care

The downtime that the millennials are craving more of is also related to self-care and recharging, away from the outside world.

They have countless new options of activities to do at home, be it facial care, journal writing or yoga practice.

Staying home live on Social Media

In the last decade, social media apps like Twitter and Facebook ensure that millennials can easily show off their staying home antics to other people who are also staying at home, making it a virtual house party.

Astrology and its believrs

For most of the people, astrology feels like a comforting magic that allows them to escape today's too organized and predictable life.

  3. Great results come from great focus, not a great variety.
Don't focus on the short-term results
  • The goal is not to lose 40 pounds in the next 12 weeks, but to regain your health for the rest of your life.
  • The goal is not to bench press 300 pounds, but to be the guy who never misses a workout.
  • The goal is not to sacrifice everything to get your fastest time in next month's race, but to be faster next year than you are today.
Focus on the best exercises
