Watching the news or reading about the Coronavirus pandemic is a very stressful way to start your day. It’s even more stressful if you, a family member, friend or a co-worker is sick. Here are 9 simple stress-reducing tips to help keep you calm during this chaos.
1. Take Four Deep Calming Breaths
This tip is probably the easiest and most powerful thing you can do to keep yourself calm. Begin each day by taking four deep breaths. Close your eyes, relax, inhale through your nose and exhale deeply through your mouth. Do this four times after you wake up while lying in bed, or when sitting or standing in a quiet place. Make it a part of your daily routine until it becomes a habit. Pay attention to your breathing throughout the day, especially when you feel anxious, stressed out at work or sitting in traffic.
What sets this Taco Bell apart from all its other 7,000+ restaurants in over 30 countries around the world – its breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. With its prime beachfront location along scenic Hwy 1 in Pacifica, California, it’s not only the surfers who flock here to order their favorite Mexican-inspired fast food. The ride alone – along a winding coastal road with stunning ocean views at every turn – is well worth the visit!

Whenever I travel across the pond to my home away from home, I can’t wait to eat all of my favorite foods again. And this latest trip was no exception… I literally ate my way through London! By the end of my visit, I was beginning to think that I wouldn’t fit into my seat on the flight back to San Francisco.
Should your travels take you to England one day, here are a few of my favorite restaurants, pubs and foods that I wanted to share with you. Bon Appetit!
Medical marijuana was legalized in California in 1996 – it was the first state to legalize medical marijuana. More than 20 years later, in November 2017, Californian’s voted to legalize “recreational” marijuana. And on January 5, 2018 it became legal in the state of California. As a result of the legalization of marijuana in key U.S. states, fun new pot tours have sprung up around the country. It’s reminiscent of how the wine and microbrewery industries and specialty tours first got started.
