The Psyche Of Fitness

For many, being safer at home has meant whipping up an increasing number of finger lickin’ good meals in the kitchen on a daily basis. It’s also meant that fitness routines and diets have taken a back seat as we race through the pandemic with a newfound appreciation for our tastebuds and appetites. Science says you can have your cake and it too — but moderation and balance are key.

Let the Sunshine In

Miami continued to showcase its resiliency to the world throughout the scorching hot summer months, confirming yet again that we are truly all in this together and brighter days are just on the horizon.
