Brighten Dark Winter Days – Coping with Seasonal Affective Disorder and the Winter Blues

I was asking around the office this morning to see if anyone had any ideas about a blog topic I should write on today. One of the nurses said, “Write about Seasonal Affective Disorder. It’s that time of year and I’m really noticing the winter blues myself.” This sounded familiar so I went back through our old blogs to see if I’d written on this topic before. Wouldn’t you know I wrote on this very topic exactly one year ago today! A sunny, warm beach is definitely on my mind and I find myself feeling very sluggish on a daily basis the last few weeks so I thought I would post the blog again to remind myself and all of you how to cope with the winter blues.

There are, however, millions of people in this world who go without every single day and our $20 gift would mean the world to them. [Read more...]

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), “A healthy diet can reduce the risk of major chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and some cancers.” [Read more...]
