2022 Predictions

   By SheSpeaksTeam  Dec 16, 2021

The time of year is here, our yearly Women’s 2022 Predictions!

This year we received 1,266 responses from the SheSpeaks community. We asked women about all kinds of topics, from their social media usage, 2022 goals, and economic outlook to current emotions.

Here are three key insights from the results, check out the deck below for more!

  1. The Pandemic Has Caused Trauma and Ongoing Anxiety. In 2019, 60% of the SheSpeaks Predictions survey respondents felt excited and optimistic about entering 2020. After a year plus of economic hardship, job loss, and pandemic trauma, the optimism seems to have faded with a consecutive 27% drop in anticipation for the new year.
  2. Self Care and Self Progress will be the Theme of 2022. Along with improving fitness, optimizing organization, and doing more for well-being, self-care will remain a common goal amongst women. In 2022, 61% of women will be placing their energy into building strength and improving fitness. Organization of the home and increasing travel have the most significant year-over-year difference in this category. Many women (51%) have also reported the desire to learn a new skill either through reading, listening to podcasts, or joining a class.
  1. The Growing Desire for Connection Strengthening relationships with family and friends seems to be the most sought-after accomplishment for women in the upcoming year. Up 15% from last year, 61% of women hope to spend more time with family & friends. For singles, the desire for connection in the form of a new love interest has also increased by 75% from 2020!

I agree with the first two, but I think as far as the third prediction goes, a lot of people are learning that some family connections can be toxic, and when to walk away when those connection don't serve either party. In all actuality, cutting ties to family toxicity can be viewed as self care (and could also help with the first two prediction as well).

I agree with all three, but being the optimist that I am, here's hoping to a better 2022!

Yes, I believe people are now liberated from the fallacy that we cannot work from home, when in fact we can. They have also realized a 40 hour workweek keeps them from those they love, and that work can be completed in much shorter timeframes, giving us more freedom to do the things we love.

Self care has always been important. I'm glad that more people are starting to realize this and put it first.
