Redbook 2hrs ago
Let's face it ... 2020 was not a normal year. With the coronavirus pandemic uprooting much of our lives, the world in 2020 was quite an unprecedented one defined by social distancing, doom-scrolling and plenty of Zoom calls in our sweatpants. But during these uncertain times, one thing that had our backs like never before was the year's pop culture and entertainment — because what else could have kept us sane throughout quarantine if not for binge-watching Tiger King, listening to "WAP" or endlessly scrolling on TikTok?Whether you obsessed over Love Is Blind when it first came out or witnessed Parasite making history at the Oscars (did all those things really happen this year?!), these moments in pop culture and entertainment were ones to remember — and definitely provided us some bright spots in the dark, hectic year that was 2020. So before stepping into 2021 with plenty of New Year's resolutions (because we definitely need to make next year better than the last), here's a look at 29 of the most powerful moments from 2020 that defined our year.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
