What’s my mo­ti­va­tion?

Are you ask­ing that of your­self for 2020? Whether you’re look­ing for some­thing to wake you up be­fore you go-go or in­spi­ra­tion to redo your per­sonal spa­ces, Pin­ter­est is the place to get your fix. En­thu­si­asts come to ogle the crafts, the DIY projects and the In­sta­gram-wor­thy fash­ion-for­ward looks.

The website re­cently re­leased its an­nual look-ahead for the year in news, beauty, cel­e­bra­tions, food, home, style, travel and wed­dings, among other themes, and 2020 prom­ises to de­liver.

One hun­dred trends made the list — cat­e­go­rized into 10 cul­tural themes, top­ics that had to show sus­tained, up­ward growth over time.

This year’s re­port com­pared global search vol­umes from Au­gust 2017 to July 2018 with those from Au­gust 2018 to July 2019. Read on to get in­spired about what we were in­spired about. may want to con­sider these op­tions to start you on that path of en­light­en­ment: ylang-ylang oil, chicory root, sea moss or cu­cum­ber juice, among other things. Thwart anx­i­ety and stress with ev­ery­day well­ness. Global searches in 2018-19 for so­cial detox­ing were up 314%, art ther­apy ac­tiv­i­ties up 444% and cu­cum­ber juice up 99% com­pared with searches in 2017-18. rooms up 104% com­pared with 2017-18, so you can nur­ture your­self with na­ture in your very own se­cret gar­den.

So, you haven’t got­ten as many stamps in your pass­port as you would have hoped in 2019. No big deal. You can deck out your per­sonal spa­ces with an in­ter­na­tional flair. And eat and drink like you are a true globe-trot­ting cos­mopoli­tan. You have all the con­trol in 2020. Peo­ple searched for the term “French an­tiques” on Pin­ter­est 384% more, West African recipes 311% more and Ja­panese soak­ing tubs 563% more in 2018-19 than they did in 2017-18.

Furry fam­ily mem­bers won’t say no to pam­per­ing in the new year (even if they could talk). So when you’re get­ting that some­thing spe­cial for your quiet time, think of that one who gives you un­con­di­tional love and at­ten­tion. Pet resorts were searched 260% more dur­ing 2018-19, as were out­door cat play­grounds (up 512% this year in searches), and cakes for dogs were up 167% over 2017-18.

Trav­el­ing does not have to be solely about tak­ing the best pic­tures. In 2020, it means liv­ing your best life be­ing con­scious about other cul­tures and Mother Earth. Broaden your hori­zons while leav­ing a smaller car­bon foot­print. It’s a win-win. Stay­ca­tion any­one? Week­end stay­ca­tion searches are up 38%, eco-friendly travel up 73%, and the term “re­duced car­bon foot­print” up 86% in 2018-19 com­pared with 2017-18.

The great out­doors has been call­ing you and leav­ing mes­sages for eons. But you keep delet­ing and dis­miss­ing said calls. How about you pick up and an­swer in 2020? Novel idea, no? It’s time to put down your screens and re­con­nect with the great out­doors IRL. Rock­hound­ing (dig­ging for geodes and gems) is up 185%, hik­ing fash­ion is up 194% and na­ture travel is up 253% in Pin­ter­est searches in 2018-19 com­pared with 2017-18.

Space. The fi­nal fron­tier. With the 50th an­niver­sary of the first moon­walk be­hind us (1969), look ahead and make sure science and space im­pacts fu­ture gen­er­a­tions and speaks to your in­ner ex­plorer when­ever and wher­ever you can. Space tat­toos have been searched 267% more and astrology-themed par­ties have been searched 247% more on the site dur­ing 2018-19 than they were dur­ing 2017-18.

What’s old is new again and this time it’s the 1990s, from fash­ion to mu­sic and style. This com­ing year, if you see scrunchies, hair clips and grunge make a resur­gence, don’t be taken aback. It’s just the Gen­er­a­tion Z’ers dis­cov­er­ing what is a nos­tal­gic rewind for the older set. And ’90s car­toons are get­ting re­boots, so much so the phrase “’90s car­toons” has been searched 227% more, ’90s fash­ion grunge 292% more, and hair scrunchie 6,309% more 2018-19 than they were in 2017-18.


Hot searches on Pin­ter­est in­clude “low-waste wed­dings,” gar­den rooms and ’90s car­toons like “Duck­Tales.”
