Generally speaking, this hasn’t been the best year—you could even argue it’s been a raging dumpster fire of a year. Chaos is everywhere: in politics, in the search for balance between our personal and digital lives, and in our eating habits (is coconut oil okay or not?!). But on a more positive note, it’s also been a hallmark year for healthy things—alt-milks have gone mainstream, woo-woo wellness has moved from weird to essential, and boutique fitness is basically the norm.

Well+Good readers (that’s you!) were interested in those trends, sure, but what were the year’s top stories? There are some more obvious contenders and topics: apple cider vinegar is the popular girl of superfoods, exercising smarter is a growing trend, and figuring out how to de-stress is becoming more and more crucial (same, always). And there are some surprises, too.

Keep scrolling to see what Well+Good readers read the most this year.
