Tip of the Day

In baseball, the seventh-inning stretch is a tradition that takes place in the middle of the seventh inning of a game. Fans typically stand up, stretch out, and take a short break. Take your own seventh-inning stretch multiple times throughout your workday at home. Stand up and walk around. Even better, get some fresh air and take a walk around the block. But remember, if you do go outside, be sure to wear a mask.
