During this time of quarantine, it's really tempting to stock up on a bunch of non-perishable snack items and to frequent the drive-thru since it's one of the few types of business still operating.  But today I want to make the case for eating more fruits and veggies.  Not just because they'll help you ward off that quarantine weight, but because they contain a chemical compound that could actually help play a critical role in helping to fight the damaging effects of the virus.

Prior to the start of the nationwide quarantine, I learned something critical about how my daily habits fuel my unproductive behavior.  As soon as I learned the root cause of my lack of motivation, I went straight into action to make immediate changes.  Since those changes have been implemented, I've experienced a huge surge in motivation and productivity.

The solution is simple, but also difficult.  There's a little bit of willpower involved but, I promise you, if you commit to giving this a try, you will not regret it.

Earlier today, my skin was dry & dull.  But now it's smooth and hydrated thanks to Halle Berry.  Yes, Halle Berry, the 53-year-old actress who still holds beauty inspiration status 'till this very day.  We've been waiting forever for Halle to reveal how she maintains her beautiful skin and youthful appearance.

Well, ladies, the day has finally arrived.  Wanna know the best part?  Her routine only involves 4 simple steps that anyone can recreate with products we already have on hand.  Halle's video came just at the right time because Sundays were meant for skin treatments.  So, give this routine and try and see if you love it as much as I do.

For the past several months, I found myself dreading wash days. Shorter, colder days just don't mesh well with extensive wash day routines.  So I pretty much tried to avoid them whenever possible.  But now that we've got a few additional hours of light each day, and I'm pretty much home all day, I thought now would be as good of a time as any to institute frequent washings into my routine...and why you should too.

I've been running my business from home for 5 years.  Even before leaving my job, I worked from home with my previous two employers.   I will never forget the day working from home.  I nearly had a panic attack because I didn't know what to do with myself.

Do I work from morning to night?
Do I clean my house in the middle of the day?
If I had to run an errand, was I stealing time?

Until I had somewhat of a structure in place, I had a lot of anxiety about working from home.   This nationwide quarantine has brought back a ton of memories of the early days of working at home.  The more I think about it, the more I realize that I've strayed from a defined structure that supports the very best outcome of working from home.   Now is the perfect time to get back on track.

The coronavirus outbreak has pretty much taken over the media.  All the updates about new cases and infection rates could cause high anxiety.  Based on the little we know so far, it's somewhat likely that many of us to come in contact with the virus.  Because many hosts are symptomless, we could be interacting with infected individuals without even knowing.

Thankfully, most of the people who will be infected with Covid-19 will experience mild symptoms.  The hope is that our immune system can effectively combat the virus.  The stronger our immune system, the greater the chance for a full recovery.

Let's talk about some ways that we boost our immunity as a part of a self-care regimen.

Years ago, I enjoyed an amazing, nutrient-rich smoothie every morning.  I tried my best to include as many superfoods as humanly possible into my daily smoothie.  I searched high and low for the perfect ingredients to boost up my morning drink.  The two must-have ingredients that I always included were spirulina and chlorella.

Once I took on a busy position that included lots of travel, I no longer had the luxury of making smoothies at home every morning.  Eventually, my diet no longer included blue-green algae.  I've now rectified the situation by restocking on both spirulina and chlorella.  After I share some of the amazing benefits of these amazing superfoods, you'll be just as obsessed as I am.
