There’s a general misconception that only the hoarders and compulsive shoppers among us need expert advice to sort out their space. However, when I’m helping clients to declutter and organize, it’s usually clear that it’s not a spending problem to blame for having too many possessions in one place. There are many reasons why people accumulate so much stuff that they can’t get rid of. And the more it mounts up, the more the dreaded...

A major factor in the number of deaths and serious illness from Covid-19 is diabesity, aka the modern-day combination of diabetes and obesity. The condition is associated with a higher risk of contracting severe forms of bacterial and virus respiratory infections, including H1N1, influenza, SARS, MERS and Covid-19.
