Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but the month of February celebrates more than your love for someone else. February is American Heart Month and it’s not about the candy hearts you munched on earlier this month. It’s about the heart that works hard to keep you alive.

As fall approaches, we experience the cooler evening temps and the crisp smell in the air, we start prepping for Halloween, and pumpkin spice flavored items are everywhere 😊.

Those who also suffer from depression outside of the fall and winter months may struggle even more during the shorter days. So, for this week, we would like to offer some tips to help you during this time of year.
