GOBankingRates 2hrs ago
Industries across the globe have struggled in 2020, but there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. With the rollout of various COVID-19 vaccines, there is some hope that both businesses and consumers alike can get back to normal sometime in 2021. However, not all industries are destined to have a good 2021. Some may actually fail in the year ahead. Companies can be broadly categorized into three types when it comes to their financial situation in 2020 and beyond. The first category is companies that are struggling this year due to the lack of consumer spending. If the vaccines fail to get widespread distribution, these struggling companies may continue to face hard times.  Read More: Industries That Practically Disappeared in 2020 On the opposite end of the spectrum, some companies have actually benefited in 2020 from the stay-at-home economy.

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.
