Tips and Picks
Camila: Cooking: On Saturday’s I wake up early to prepare beans and dishes that I can freeze to make my life easier on weekdays.
Dressing Kids: Let kids pick out several outfits the night before to avoid them going to the closet in the mornings.
Bricia: Humidity in homes can lead to increased bacterial growth which could lead to more frequent illnesses. Purchase a humidity gauge to learn where your house’s current levels are.
Paulina: The calm app is great for meditation but it also has breathing exercises. I go to my car and practice deep breathing and it has helped me tremendously.
