The days grow shorter. The dark hangs around longer. We shift into holiday mode as the year finally winds down to its close.
And the internet grows fat with this year’s crop of year-end lists.
For holiday time is also list-making time. Best movies. Worst movies. Top new stories. Notable deaths. Most ridiculous trends. What we’ll all be buzzing about in 2020.
Let’s face it: We love lists, and there are so many reasons why they feel symbolically right at this time of year. It’s a natural time for reflection, after all – and for looking ahead. Lists can be perfect little summaries of what’s been and what’s to come.
And they’ve become something of a tradition, including here on the Radiant Health Blog. So before we take our holiday break, here are the 10 most popular posts for 2019:
As usual, a lot of those posts are older ones that have been shared quite a bit, often introducing folks to our blog in the first place, where new content goes up every other week. As ever, some posts focus on new scientific research impacting human health. Others focus on particular therapies we offer here in our holistic West LA clinic, as well as steps you can take at home to help turn good health into Radiant Health.
