With the onset of COVID-19 in early 2020, more people are spending time at home. This is impacting all aspects of our life and living including how we eat, exercise, work, further our education, worship, shop, and enjoy entertainment, just to name a few important things. This series will provide tips and common sense for how we can live a happier and healthier life while spending more time at home, or any other place for that matter.

Are you concerned about your health and happiness while staying at home? There's been a lot of uncertainty and frequent change. Many of our normal routines have been disrupted as we find new and different ways to accomplish activities from our homes instead of from their usual locations and venues.

The underlying theme of "social distancing" has accelerated an already growing and popular transition to "online" as a substitute, or at least as an alternative way, of continuing to perform and enjoy certain tasks and activities such as group meetings, shopping, education, entertainment, and worship. Hopefully the pandemic will pass soon but the ideas for healthy living presented in this series can be considered and used regardless of current events and our response to them.


Eating Better

Many of us turn to comfort and convenience when our routines get disrupted and when we get stressed, especially regarding our food choices. Nobody is perfect but there are some simple and practical things we can do to eat better at home no matter our current circumstances.


Exercise

Physical activity is a great way to facilitate better health and reduce stress. While we are spending more time at home, consider these suggestions to alter activities you are likely already doing, to provide more movement in your daily routines.


Working

With more people working from home than ever before, consider these tips for integrating work into your home-life in a healthier way.


Learning

While the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in more people taking classes at home, E-Learning has been on the rise since the mid 90s. Here's some ways you can make your home environment more productive and healthy to better accommodate learning from home.


Entertainment

Healthy entertainment at home is important to our happiness and wellbeing, especially when we are spending more time there than normal. Consider these ideas for fun and entertaining activities you can do at home.


Shopping

One part of a healthy living at home is eating right and staying stocked with the things you need. That, in turn, means shopping from home. We'll explain options you might want to consider.

Lifestyle Choices, Nutrition & Quality Supplements

Think back to the time of your great-grandparents. What types of food did people eat back then? For the most part they ate what they could grow on their land or what they got locally from a Farmer's market or some other community-based food supply. So what happened to our food?
