What does Wellness Look Like in 2021?

Literally, all aspects of wellness had a shake up last year. How we stay fit, what we eat, the way we work, the way we travel and the reverberations of those changes is sure to be felt in 2021 too. The global pandemic has redefined

21 Acts of Self-Care for 2021
