The lifestyle niche is quickly taking over every single news outlet on the web. It seems that these days everyone is looking for a way to improve their life. The immense growth of lifestyle related topics has not been overlooked by WordPress theme designers. Lifestyle and healthy living themes are some of the most popular. The typical lifestyle blog or magazine uses traditional blog listing layouts. Luckily for website owners, the trends have kept evolving. Beautiful content sliders, new ways to show off content, and concise content promotion features are some of the top tools you can expect from the following themes.
Most of all, it’s the reassurance that you are selecting a great template. While we go through our own selection process, we do take several factors into consideration.

Second, of all, it’s the reviews of existing customers. You don’t want to choose a theme that is dysfunctional. So, we paid close attention to other people’s feedback. And for the most part, it has been very positive.
You have to keep your eyes open. It’s easy to get distracted by looking at already existing lifestyles websites.

But, eventually, lifestyle people tend to produce books, courses, and similar products. Having a theme that can help you promote those products is important, furthermore, being able to post content alongside is just as vital.

You can enable post likes from the dashboard.
And lastly, something that we haven’t yet seen on any other lifestyle theme so far, is the ability to pinpoint individual parts of a featured image. Let’s say you are a fashion blogger. It’s very likely that you will blog about clothing, and fashion in general. From time to time, you are going to feature specific brands and clothing items that either you or someone you know has worn.
