FOOD FOR THOUGHT

When your room is clean and uncluttered, you have no choice but to examine your inner state.

 

- Marie Kondo

I do think there’s a collective shift toward embracing rituals, and a recognition of the role of energy and vibration in looking and feeling our best.

  • _MINDFUL EATING_  Raise your hand 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ if you ever had that awkward moment of dining by yourself in a restaurant (that’s why room service at hotels still works:) Solo by @kompanietdesign is an eating scene for a single person. The aim is to break today’s traditional way of eating alone at a restaurant through a series of instruments. By slowing down a bit, we can allow some space and time for contemplation and sensibility to grow within ourselves.
In “Solo,” the guest and the food slowly wander side by side, and the person can take pauses and make sensitive choices during the process.  We are glad to introduce this thoughtful project as the cover of our newest Trend Report CEREMONY 2020/21  #trendreport #ETTrendBooks #TrendsMatter Trends2020 #trendwatching #trends2021 #ceremonytrendbook #contemplation #meditation #mindfulness #mindful #mindfulmoments #wellbeing #holistic #selfcare #justbreathe #spirtualhealth #heal #healing #rituals #wellness #morningrituals

So the new Trend Report CEREMONY 2020/21 launches today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's been almost one year observing how the market has shifted, asking for a more meaningful design that helps to achieve inner reflection and nurtures self-care. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Do you feel you'd like to become a partner to your client rather than being seen as a seller only? ✨ But you are not sure to understand how to communicate well? ✨ You know it has become crucial, but you can't quite find a way to offer products/services that speak to a more mindful-driven market?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉 In the first place, this trend study will help you understand current value shifts in society. 👉That knowledge enables you to empathize and get a clearer vision of how to reach your target. 👉The report shows ways of living that resonate with an audience excited to live a more balanced life. 👉You will learn about products/services that speak to a more mindful-driven market, and find ideas for your story when working through our worksheets.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We had more than 1.000 projects on the table and have come up this time with a complete and a downsized version (swipe to see both) of the same report to give our readers more flexibility.

.  Yesterday was a bleisure day combining business and leisure 😀
.  During a forrest walk scouting future areas around Barcelona where we want to live, I filmed a little video answering questions I received the past days about CEREMONY 2020/21.
.  You were basically asking
👉 What exactly is CEREMONY 2020/21? 👉 What’s the difference between the two Trend Report editions? 👉 And how can this Trend Report help/support my business ?
.  I figured it would be much nicer to get in front of the camera and answer in less than two minutes 😀
.  What you see here is just a snippet. Please clic on the direct link in the profile to watch the video.
🙏 THANK YOU 🙏 .
. 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 for translating the spontaneous idea, and the constant help and support. You are my video master!  #TrendsMatter #ceremonytrendbook

  • _MINDFUL COMMUNICATION_

How much are we in the moment when doing anything?
Why is mindfulness on the rise and not even translated in many languages anymore?
Is mindfulness becoming mainstream?
And if so, what is Meaningful Design?

We have reached out to many artists, creatives makers in the past months to collaborate with our latest Trend Report CEREMONY. 
My heart skipped a beat when finding this image after the editorial deadline.

@danieldorsa is a New York-based photographer. Toying with light and intimacy, he achieves to set up visual poetry for editorial and commercial storytelling.
This image describes perfectly the moment of interaction between two parts, a brief instant of concentration, focus, and mindful communication.

  • _PRE-SALE IS UP_
. 
How many trend reports have you seen where 'trends' are reduced to colors, materials, and shapes only?
.  These are features. .  When working with features only, you will scratch the surface of design and communication opportunities, and risk to offer what anybody else already has in store.
.  There is a good chance to lose the potential a trend report can offer you: understand your client, his needs, empathize, and provide solutions. .  The reason why we have created the Trend Report CEREMONY 2020/21 is to underline how widespread the need for a more balanced lifestyle in today's society is.
.  You will learn the importance of concepts such as self-care interiors, what holistic will-being means today and why you should listen to it, and how widespread mindful practices inside and outside our homes are already are. .  And we have exciting NEWS:
.  This time the trend report comes in two versions:
. ✨ A complete version of 218 pages + 3 bonuses (pic 1). ✨ A downsized version of 138 pages + 1 bonus (pic 2).
.  Once you read the report, you’ll see, we all can somehow relate to CEREMONY.
.  This forecast helps you to:
. 👉 understand what a mindful-driven market is asking for in the next two years
👉 develop a confident speech
👉 defend arguments within your corporate structure or in the presence of your clients
👉 find ideas for new product lines/services
👉 understand under-lying patterns of societal structures
.  The pre-sale is up for a very limited amount of days. You can access more information through the link in my profile. Thank you. 🙏
.  PD: The one consulting advice I would give to corporate clients now is this: Become a partner to your end consumer and stop being considered as a brand that sells products and services only. 🎯 CEREMONY uncovers the needs of today’s society. A SLOW LIVING has become a HOLISTIC WELL-BEING LIVING. ☀️
