RECHARGE YOUR BATTERIES WITH A STAYCATION

In 2020, make your health a priority! Sure, it’s easier said that done with all the stress of daily life, but it’s so extremely important. Think about it, when you get on the plane, an important airline safety tip is that in case of a loss in cabin pressure, you need to put on your oxygen mask 1st before assisting others. Well ladies, the same is true for taking care of yourself – if you can’t breathe, then you cannot help those around you.
