Post-Pandemic Lifestyle Lessons with Colleen Burns

According to a poll for the American Psychological Association 42% of us gained weight since the start of the Pandemic and more than half are less physically active.

I have a great way to commit to changing. United Health Care and golf star Rory McIlroy are urging you to make a summer health pledge. Just visit to get great health tips like 10,000 step walking trails near you, AND you can win one of more than 100 prizes including a dream gym with a Peloton bike. You can also help United Health Care break the Guinness World Records title for most health pledges in a month —who doesn’t want to be part of a world record? UHC will also donate 60 thousand dollars to the Boys and Girls Clubs. Click here to learn more.

The same poll says more than a third of us are sleeping less since the start of the pandemic. I was tired of counting sheep! So I found this great drug free solution from Unisom. They’re new. Simple Slumbers supplements are a proprietary mix of Melatonin, Passion Flower, Lemon Balm and Vitamin B6 which are believed to help sooth and calm your mind and support brain health.

I love the great flavors, too. Midnight Raspberry and Golden Honey Lemon. I can fall asleep quickly, stay asleep and wake up feeling refreshed and I get so much more accomplished! Click here to learn more.

So many factors made budgeting during the Pandemic a nightmare. If you don’t use Relay in SoFi's app, check it out. It’s the only app that gives you a complete picture of your spending and saving, your credit score, your investment accounts and more, all in one place regardless of whatever bank or investment service you use. And now with Property Tracking you can track the value of your home and find out which home improvements will give you your best ROI. For using the app, you can earn rewards for cash back, to buy stocks and cryptocurrency, or to pay down debt, and best of all it’s completely free. Click here to learn more.

Support your local businesses, they’re struggling most, and buy gift cards for restaurants and shops, it puts more money in business owners’ hands sooner. Also consider donating to your area food shelves which are serving 55% more people in need and to blood banks which are at critically low levels.
