Foods high in vitamins
Why is everybody stocking up on toilet paper instead of fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods? Why is nobody talking about boosting the immune system?

The reason why the elderly and people with underlying conditions or those who are immunocompromised are more at risk to be seriously affected by illnesses and diseases, is because they don’t have the ability to respond normally to an infection due to an impaired or weakened immune system.

Self care
So, last year, we were outside enjoying a sunny October afternoon, when my 9-year old said “Mom, you look very old today.” Wait, what did you just say?? “You have a lot of wrinkles.”

Of course I had wrinkles! The sun was shining, so I was squinting. And it was a long and exhausting day. (Not). And — ok, stop. Enough denial. That day I swore that 2020 was going to be a year of more self care and me-love.

My TLC-year started in January with a weekly HIIT and Yoga routine. In mid January I treated myself to a wonderful massage and two weeks ago I had my first-ever HydraFacial at Face to Face Spa at Davenport Village.
