Good News Today in 2021: Innovations and Trends

Trends can be fickle and fleeting, so why bother with them? I’m not much of a trendsetter or even a trend follower. So why am I writing about innovations, trends, and what to expect in 2021? Exciting things are happening in the world of medicine, transportation and other areas. There just might be some good news that may be helpful. Perhaps you will be able to use these interesting tidbits of good news today as well.

Why Write About Trends and Good News Today?

Sometimes trends are interesting to investigate. Trends can also make good conversation starters. As a school librarian, I like to keep up with trends in children’s books. As a writer, I sometimes use trends to give me ideas about subject matter. Learning about trends is different from following trends. Maybe learning about trends might be helpful to you as well. I’ve read and watched trend reports here and there during the past few weeks and gleaned good news about what to expect in 2021 which I might be able to use.  With that in mind, here are some good news nuggets of information I’ve dug up recently. Let’s dive into some of the reasons to celebrate good news in 2021!

Decorating Good News Today

These cozy blankets can serve a variety of decor purposes. That’s good decor news for today!

I receive an insider newsletter from Etsy, due to my little hat shop and my digital downloads shop, here is a decor trend to look for in 2021: Anything that is cozy and comforting is hot right now. Since many are spending most of their time at home, it makes sense. According to the Etsy Seller’s Handbook for 2021, shoppers can look for a wide selection of home decor items that serve more than one purpose. Why is this good news? These multifunctional products can increase efficiency in the home office and home classroom. You can be comfortable and organized at the same time!

Good News for Foodies Today

good news today cauliflower and peppers

According to Delish.com, plant-based diets are continuing in popularity in 2021. I am not a vegetarian, but I consider this to be good news because vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, and squash are easy to fix. I like to take cauliflower flowerets, place them in a microwave-safe covered dish, add a couple tablespoons of water, and steam in the microwave for about eight minutes. After the cauliflower is cooked, I drain the water and top with cheddar cheese. What could be easier? Kale is one of my favorite vegetables to dry and sneak into food my family eats. I even wrote about it in this post about sneaky vegetable strategies.

Good News in the Medical Field Today

The creation of a COVID vaccine is certainly good news for today. According to an article on the MDLinx site, other positive trends in health treatments include new treatments for multiple sclerosis, hepatitis C, and cystic fibrosis. There is a new treatment for migraine headaches, which was the bane of my existence during my puberty years. Many people can attest to the increased effectiveness of remote medical visits. Despite the many challenges of 2020, medical science forged ahead in dramatic ways.

Employment Good News Today

Although 2020 was a tough year for many business sectors, there is some good news out there today. If you are hired, according to Forbes.com, you will probably get paid top-dollar. Look to the industries that were hurt badly in 2020, like travel and leisure, to experience growth. Transportation, utilities, and retail jobs will also make a predicted resurgence. That’s good news!

Fashion Good News Today

Vintage Retro Quad Roller Skates on White Background

Are these rollerskates making a comeback in 2021? No, but they do have one trending characteristic: The color yellow! If you are into fashion trends and popular, trending colors, look no further than the color authority, Pantone. Did you know the company names a Color of the Year? For 2021, the folks at Pantone actually chose two colors: Illuminating (a bright yellow) and Ultimate Gray. Why is this good news? If you are bold with your color choices, Illuminating is for you. If you prefer a more subdued color approach, Ultimate Gray probably appeals more to your tastes. For people somewhere in between, put the two together for a smashing outfit.

Good News for Travelers Today

Need some good travel news today? According to an article in Forbes magazine, people still want to travel. Popular destinations include places with a lot of sand and not many people. Great travel deals can be had in Mexico, Crete, The Maldives and across the Caribbean. An important thing to look for when booking travel in 2021 includes flexible cancellation policies. A favorite travel strategy for making the most of the travel deals out there is to look for a great deal, then choose a destination. Begin your search by looking for the best bargains, not a particular destination. Once you find a terrific deal, then you can research and learn about all of the great options available for travelers at that location.

Good News Today About Buying a Car

Those of you who avoid going to a car dealership to buy a car will be happy to learn that more companies are going to turn to online vehicle sales. According to Automotive World, this will mean cost-cutting and more convenience for car-buyers. That’s terrific news! Other positive trends from the automotive industry include more electric vehicle companies going into production as well as increased safety and reliability of autonomous driving.

Good News for Consumers Today

It’s now easier than ever to order online. From online grocery shopping to ordering food from a restaurant, brick-and-mortar stores are making it simple to shop using technology without setting foot in the store or a restaurant. According to an article in The Motley Fool, people are also purchasing more store brands than before. When regular brands became unavailable earlier in the year, consumers turned to generic brands, which often contain the same ingredients. The packaging may be different, but the contents are the same as pricey brand-name items.

Technology Good News Today

Do you ever get tired of carrying your cell phone around? If so, you’ll be happy to learn the good news that instead of smartphones, we may be wearing smart glasses in the near future. As reported in an article in Forbes, the use of wearable technology will continue to increase. When people were unable to go to the local gym to work out, smartwatches came to the rescue. Just what will the smart glasses be capable of? Stay tuned!
