Mental health apps like Calm are great for daily meditation and breathing exercises too
Used it as a university student

Calm is great! Use it every morning before I get out of bed

Unwind on the App Store for iPhone is great for meditation as well. I love the design too

I love Unwind! Great for yoga exercises

We hope you are doing well! While we continue to live with uncertainty, one thing is for sure, we are counting down the days to our June 6th Virtual VisionWalk!

Sure, this year's walk may be different than years' past, but this year we still have a lot to celebrate. 2020 marks 15 years since the first VisionWalk took place! Over the past 15 years, we've gathered together to spread awareness, have our voices heard, create lasting memories, and make way for a brighter future ahead.

Throughout its 15-year history and through the generosity of more than 200,000 walkers, donors, and corporate sponsors, VisionWalk has raised more than $55 million. These funds have enabled the Foundation to continue to advance its important mission of moving vision-restoring treatments from the laboratory to the patients who need them. This is all thanks to you, your teammates, our donors, and our sponsors! Together, we are making important strides and this year's Virtual VisionWalk will help bring us even closer to accomplishing our mission.

Love it!  8)

Rraised a ton of money! Hope everyone is staying safe

it was a great time!

"More cases of COVID-19 are likely to be identified in the United States in the coming days, including more instances of community spread. Itís likely that at some point, widespread transmission of COVID-19 in the United States will occur. Widespread transmission of COVID-19 would translate into large numbers of people needing medical care at the same time. Schools, childcare centers, and workplaces, may experience more absenteeism. Mass gatherings may be sparsely attended or postponed. Public health and healthcare systems may become overloaded, with elevated rates of hospitalizations and deaths. Other critical infrastructure, such as law enforcement, emergency medical services, and sectors of the transportation industry may also be affected. Healthcare providers and hospitals may be overwhelmed. At this time, there is no vaccine to protect against COVID-19 and no medications approved to treat it. Nonpharmaceutical interventions would be the most important response strategy."

Scary! Stay safe and avoid large crowds, especially if you like in states like California or New York!


I'm in New York right now and the situation seems a little crazy! Everyone stay safe!

Hope everyone is staying safe and social distancing!

Especially in areas like NYC,etc.  :o

Hopefully it dies down soon but I've heard it'll probably persist for a couple of months at least, likely until the end of the year

 :-\ :-\ :-\

hopefully the second wave isnt too bad  :-\

Anyone in university get any news about their fall semesters being online or in person?

Mine's online but I know some that are going with a mix of online/in person.
