Have you heard of Coronavirus? Of course you have!

On today’s episode, Michael and Adee talk about the pandemic impacting all of our lives. They share the specific things they’re doing to maintain health and sanity during this time in three areas: mindset, health & fitness and community & relationships.

If you’ve been struggling with your nutrition, Adee explains why this could be the perfect opportunity to dial things in and make great progress. They also talk about ways to connect with your community during a time of physical isolation.
