How are you doing?

How are you doing? How has the pandemic affected you? Some people have decided to self-isolate and take extreme precautions by not stepping into grocery stores or even do take-out foods. They have considered themselves to act as responsible citizens. While others have done mass protests on the street, going mask-less! They have felt that their rights as citizens have been violated by the Government.

How to Increase Your Energy?

Coffee, energy drinks, and foods that claim to increase your energy are everywhere for a reason. We have become a society of people who must hustle and always be productive to the point of burnout. We crave more energy to simply get through the day. Women, you know all about stress. You have the physical energy of lifting kids into car seats, go to work, the stress pregnancy and monthly hormonal changes add to your body.
