#3 – Habits: Post-Pandemic Challenges and Successes

During the pandemic, our routines got thrown out the window. Some used the extra time at home or away from friends to prioritize their sleep, eating and exercising, while others took on new hobbies like playing an instrument. At the same time, many found it harder to sleep well, eat healthy, or get outside.

Join us on this episode of Coming Back Better, as Marjorie Morrison and Paul Deger dive a little deeper into how sleep and nutrition were impacted during the pandemic and what we can do to continue fostering positive changes in our habits and behaviors.
