5 Months Into Quarantine and Social Distancing...

It has been 5 months since we have all been asked to quarantine, social distance and wear masks. How are you all doing? Some of you have lost your jobs, have kids at home 24/7 and are losing your minds. Most of us just miss hugging our friends and seeing a stranger's smile! 

Personally I am happy no one in my circle has fallen ill and I am so very grateful for all the extra time I have had with my family. It definitely has brought us closer together and more appreciative of the "little things" in life. 

From news around the world, it seems that even though more people are ill with Covid-19, perhaps it is growing less deadly. This is an expected path that most viruses go down – the virus needs a live host to spread and to survive. However, it is becoming clear that the longterm effects of Covid are pernicious and debilitating. So with that in mind, we still need to be very conscientious of staying healthy and safe!

Here are my recommendations to boost your immune system and stay as healthy as possible in these tough times.....
