Year in Review: The world's most-searched athletes of 2020
List Wire 2hrs ago
Moving the proverbial sports needle in 2020... From pre-COVID-19 glimpses of the Super Bowl and national championship to March Madness transforming from a marketing pitch to an actual feeling and beyond, the sports calendar was packed with things that caught our collective attention. Mix that with the frustrating squeeze of the coronavirus pandemic, which caused so many of us to spend even more time on the internet, and voila: You have some seriously searched for athletes in 2020. And, according to the 2020 trends, these were the athletes who captured the most intrigue, not only in the U.S. but all over the world. (Just for fun, we've included a few honorable mentions from the top U.S. search trends, because why not.)

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.
