Gratitude During COVID-19


Stress levels are high, emotions are up and down and we don’t know exactly what tomorrow will bring. Even though times are tough, we can still find those little silver linings if we look for them and acknowledge what we are grateful for during this time.

Our team has put together a list of what we are grateful for and how we are spending our time. We’d love to hear what you’re grateful for and what you’re doing to stay healthy, so head over to our Instagram page and let us know and you’ll be entered to win meals from Sakara Life!

“My health, times like this make you realize how fragile our health can be and how important it is to get enough sleep, rest, and good nutrition. Spending time at home with family & my dog – It’s nice to have quality unscheduled time to catch up over morning coffees, walks & dinner. Technology it would be hard to go for weeks without my favorite workouts, but luckily some of my favorites like Fhitting Room On Demand and Barry’s have gone online and it’s given me a chance to expand my horizons and do more yoga with Corepower and Y7. It’s also been gratifying to be able to contribute to a positive impact in people’s lives by providing wellbeing resources through HK@Home, and I’m excited that my grocery order from our partner Thrive Market finally arrived!” – Erika Zauner, Founder

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to cook more often, take walk breaks outdoors, and do online improv classes! When I am feeling like I don’t have time to cook I have loved ordering meals with Eat Clean Bro and Purple Carrot, while also practicing meditation with the Calm app. I’m also grateful for the ability to support companies and their employees during this time through extending them preferred pricing and access to our hundreds of wonderful wellness partners”” – Julie Campus, Corporate Partnerships
