Self-isolating in luxury during COVID-19
As I gaze out my window, morning coffee in hand, the sun just starting to make an appearance peek from behind the clouds, I forget for just a moment that the mornings are still chilly and COVID 19 still looms over our world.
It’s been a different kind of spring break than we were anticipating and after a couple of weeks of just work and home I recognize that I am feeling cooped up. Although we are not privy to our usual amounts of freedom we can still do many things to pass the time and to plan for a future without COVID 19 or at the very least with loosened restrictions as there will be a time that the curve begins to flatten and we can begin to return to our lives.
Don’t put a hold on your getaways all together
While we know there is some reluctancy to book summer vacations with a pandemic looming over our heads but the truth is planning and looking forward to when the borders open or even when the self isolation and social distancing rules are loosened, we will all be ready for a vacation or a staycation.

On that note, think sun (we all know Vitamin D is good for our overall health), fresh air, being outdoors – why not go glamping. Check out this great article on the health benefits of fresh air and sunshine: Health Benefits of Fresh Air and Sunshine
