I’ve been sick a lot less

Less opportunity to get sick when wearing masks, social distancing, and washing hands religiously.

Def less, but depends on how you’ve been interacting with people during the pandemic (obv more interaction and more without a mask and lack of proper hand washing is gonna lead to getting sick more).

If you are spending a lot of time at home, could it be air quality issues? Maybe get your air ducts/filters checked or cleaned..

Yup I got sick a few times, not sure if it was more often than usual. but it’s a pandemic, so tis the season I guess?

Yeah I got a pretty nasty virus within the past 4mo, twice. Got tested multiple times throughout too and no covid. Pretty weird because I rarely got sick pre-covid

Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
