Making smart, sensible choices about what we put in our bodies is important when trying to maintain or improve our health. However, it's equally as important that we don't let the desire to maintain a healthy weight keep us from having a healthy relationship with food. For some, healthy eating is something that just comes naturally, but for others it is a learned behavior that takes practice.
Developing a healthy, balanced relationship with the foods you eat isn't just a good idea when it comes to staying healthy and happy. It's actually an essential part of not only meeting your health goals, but maintaining them as well.

Daylight hours are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder. If you are like many of us, the long dark, dreary days of winter can get you down. If you find yourself lacking energy, struggling to rise in the morning, and overeating or eating unhealthy foods, you may have a case of the winter blues, as known as seasonal depression. Fortunately, there are some simple ways to help you snap out of it.
