Since the advent of COVID, health and wellness has never been more important.
Supermodel and new mum Gigi Hadid quotes, “I always say: eat clean to stay fit, have a burger to stay sane.” More than just a dieting mantra, Gigi’s attitude when it comes to food could be applied to other areas of life, say, wellness and self-care. For some staying fit and staying sane is one and the same but not for all.
