Regardless if it is a Birthday, Mother’s Day, Chanukah or Christmas, it is often hard to come up with meaningful gifts for our friends and family.  For many years, I was giving monetary gift cards to my hard to please pips.  The problem with that is that it is something they spend and forget about.  On the other hand, giving a present can also be problematic as many people already have similar things or have a different taste; that is hard to cater to.

As the holidays approach, we all get busy and sometimes forget to take time for ourselves. Obviously it’s important to schedule some ‘me’ time for relaxing, but it’s also important to maintain the healthy lifestyle you’ve been working towards all year.

Habits influence how we live our lives. As New York Times writer Charles Duhigg explains in his recent book The Power of Habit, habits are essentially patterns that help shape every aspect of our lives.

So, we understand the importance of habits in our daily lives, what are the good habits we need to focus on to maintain our heart health?

My friend’s birthday is coming up soon, and her wonderful husband has reached out to all of her friends to get together and celebrate over sushi and karaoke.

Because it’s Draft Day.

Below, you’ll find five foods that have a bad rap but good qualities.

Chocolate
Chocolate has fallen from grace and risen again many times. From taking a toll because of sugar content to making a comeback because of its antioxidant properties, many of us have a love/hate relationship with chocolate.
