Staying healthy is more important than ever before as we try to slow the spread of COVID-19. We all know that eating healthy food and exercising is conducive to that goal, but did you know that meditation is, as well?
Research shows that meditation is beneficial for both physical and mental health, and may reduce blood pressure, pain, anxiety, depression and insomnia, as well as symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis.
Remember your first date with your current partner? Maybe it was a great experience that makes you wistfully smile when you think back on it. Maybe it was an epic disaster straight out of a sitcom. However it worked out, it was interesting and fun (or at least memorable enough for a second try.) With that in mind, how long has it been since you had that sort of excitement? If you’re like many of us, you can probably think of a long list of work projects that are more recent than your last date. If we’re going to keep our lives balanced, it’s important to remember the excitement of that first date and try to recapture it once in a while. And what better way than a date night?

We live in a world of technological marvels that would have astounded our ancestors. It’s pretty amazing when you think about. We have access to more information on our phones that the ancients of Alexandria had in their entire library. Videos, news, sports and more are just a click away. We’re connected to our world in more ways than we ever thought possible.
According to a study by Asurion, Americans check their phones 96 times per day—or at least once every 10 minutes. So, it’s no surprise that text message open rates are at 98 percent.
That’s right, 98 percent!
Compare that to email marketing’s 20 percent open rate…
If you’re not already using text message marketing, you’re considering it now, right?
