As a blogger I get invited to a variety of press events. I wasn't able to attend Duracell's "Stay Connected" event in New York City last week, but I wanted to share some news from the initiative in honor of National Better Hearing Month, which takes place in May.

So many of us are guilty of it: We feel lousy with a sore throat, bronchitis, a cold or a sinus or ear infection. We call or visit our health care professional, insisting that we need antibiotics. And we have been getting them, in many cases despite the fact that they're unnecessary. Antibiotics account for 47 million excess prescriptions each year.

We wake up, brush our teeth, pour ourselves some coffee or tea, eat breakfast (or not) and head off to work (or play).Wash, rinse and repeat.Sure, having a morning routine—or any routine for that matter—is an essential part of living a healthy life.

After being cooped up in the dreary darkness and cold of winter, lots of us (at least in the colder climates) have come away pale, anxious to get moving again and, in many cases, sporting a few extra pounds. A University of Pittsburgh study of people with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) found that 27 percent reported a pattern binge eating. Hardly surprising.
