November 10, 2020 | Things to Do

Many of us have had it with the indoor activities, working from home, remote learning, cooking all meals and even exercising in our home gyms. And those of us with kids, really feel the pinch. It can often feel like a natural recipe for insanity. We’re all doing our part, but families need to strategize safe escapes for mental clarity and much needed physical activity.
