In our quest to eat right, we search out healthy foods: protein-packed eggs, iron-rich leafy greens, calcium-rich cheese. I don't know about you, but I always feel so much better - mentally and physically - when I make healthy food choices. Besides, somehow I'm naturally drawn to those healthier foods; maybe my body knows what it needs and I'm learning to listen.

Elyse Jankowski, HealthyWomen program assistantDecorating the house, shopping for gifts, traveling to visit family members, and not enough time to do it all!

Perhaps it's the gray, rainy day; the realization that winter has finally struck and the 60 degree days are merely an anomaly rather than the rule.

But lately, loneliness has been sharing my space with me.

That's what I used to think when people complained about taking care of someone who was sick. I used to think that they were being selfish; after all, it wasn't about THEM, it was about the person who was sick. THEY were the ones who needed the attention; they were the ones who were suffering.
