But when does it all become too much? This is not to say aesthetics and treating yourself with a little retail therapy isn’t a good thing but there has to be more than just what’s on the outside. Today we are talking wellness from the inside out. Wellness is a topic that has made the rounds from the home to the workplace for a long time now. We all have or know someone who has tried…
