the push to looking better at any cost
Back from all my errands and chores that pile up to be done over the weekend. Wait a minute, isn't the weekend meant to be about relaxing and enjoying the time off from work? I try to keep one day completely free of any kind of "work" so that one gets some time away from it all, but sometimes it's just not possible. This morning I'd gone to the pharmacy to stock up on vitamins and saw the largest section of the store dedicated to diets for quick weight loss programs and so on. I visit my local pharmacy every month or so to stock up, but this is the first time I've seen such a strong push towards these products, and the local neighborhood is quite conservative, so I was surprised to see it all.
