Living a healthier life is a top priority for nearly everyone, but in 2021, it’s likely to be more important than ever, as a growing proportion of U.S. consumers shift to a preventative approach in an effort to maintain their physical, emotional, mental, and social health.

But health and wellness mean different things to different people, and the tools consumers use to maintain their quality of life can vary widely. We looked at what health and wellness mean to consumers right now to learn what concerns matter most to them—and how they’re planning to address them.
