During this unprecedented time over 80% of America is under a stay-at-home order. The past few weeks many have been practicing social distancing. To overcome this pandemic, we all must do our part to protect one another and reduce the overload to our medical facilities.
Social distancing can take a major toll on a person that fights depression or other mental illnesses. Being social is the biggest thing to help these people in need! That is why I don’t like the term “Social Distancing” but rather think of it as “Physical Distancing”. We live in a world that technology is readily available, and I am challenging people to reach out to friends, coworkers, and close acquaintances frequently during this time. We can maintain our distance and follow the guidelines set by our states and reach out through various social media sites to connect with one another. We can all overcome this and become stronger afterwards. But it takes all of us together to make this possible! Humility can go a long way.
I challenge you to reach out to at three people today and continue contacting three people everyday over the next two weeks. You may be the shining light someone needs to overcome and persevere during this time!
Windows 10 has added a really cool feature called virtual desktops. If you use your computer to run very different task at the same time then virtual desktop offers a convenient way to stay organized. Also if you have a program that you want to look will not allow you to open two instances of the program virtual desktop may be of use to you.
With virtual desktops it lets you create multiple, separate desktops that each can display different open windows and apps. An example is putting all the items related to one specific tax on one desktop. Another is if you have a program that has to run for a long period of time run it on a virtual desktop to it doesn't distract you from your current task.

Annual Evaluation of withholding is a personal finance best practice that has become even more essential after tax reform's changes to individual tax rates and brackets. During the 2018 tax year, many individuals realized the need to adjust their withholding to realign with their new income tax liability. The IRS recommends performing a "payroll checkup" and adjusting W-4s as needed to ensure adequate tax is withheld. When updating withholding, make sure to use the most recent version of the W-4.
