Shelter in Place Silver Linings

By Herman | June 1, 2020

Originally published in Thrive Global on May 24th, 2020.
As a veteran television news reporter, I consider myself a pretty rugged gal. I covered 9-11, the London Bombings, Hurricane Katrina, Superstorm Sandy, and thousands of other horrific crime stories a la Law and Order. In other words, it’s tough to ruffle my feathers.
These days, I am a wife, mother of three, and full-time, start-up co-founder. It’s still pretty tough to rattle my cage. And then came Corona.

By Herman | May 31, 2020

 
We did an article on this topic a couple weeks ago, so it’s great to see the awareness being raised around this topic. There is little correlation to “weak glutes” being the reason for a person’s low back pain, so let’s build resilience with people rather than preaching false narratives.
