Site loading so incredibly slow it's not even funny

I can't believe how slow this site is:

Any idea what's the problem?

Thanks.

    Hello Meredith

    I am sorry to hear you have this issue.

    Upgrading all of your plugins, WordPress itself and the PHP version should speed the things up.

    Usually, these are the things that slowing down a site are Web Hosting, Bad Plugins, total site's size. Try to deactivate all the plugins, will it im[proove the site's loading speed?

    Hosting is a very important factor. If you are on a shared hosting, consider upgrading your host to VPS or a dedicated server.

    - For faster load time, optimize all your images with WP Smush plugin. Based on the WebPageTest site, some images like hmbox-elastics1b.jpg takes 3 to 5 seconds to load.

    - Remove all the plugins that you do not need

    Try the above and let me know how the site's speed will be improved.

    Kind regards,
    Nastia
