Key Ideas

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.

Advice From Adriene

*Be a calm and gentle witness to the feelings you are nurturing. Yoga is not something you have to be good at to start practicing.

Even if you are not feeling flexible, just wear something comfortable and start doing Yoga.*
