Got The Winter Blues?

After the excitement of the holidays is over, it’s normal to feel underwhelmed returning to the daily grind, especially with several months of cold winter weather ahead of us. But some people feel more than a post-holiday letdown. For people with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), the change of seasons brings a change of mood.

Be Mindful of Mindless Eating

Mindless eating is a part of most everyone's lives -- and even an extra 100 to 200 calories a day can add up. The little extra treats that we sneak throughout the day are more significant than we realize. Fortunately, small changes in your habits and environment can make a big difference!

Valentine’s Day Treats

At the end of every year, we navigate our way through the holiday season, constantly attempting to dodge the food that is thrown our way. They pass, and New Year's Resolutions come, where we adamantly dedicate ourselves to healthy habits.  By the end of January, we are finally getting back on track.

The Skinny On Dieting
Fad diets surround us on social media, on magazine covers in the checkout aisle, on radio ads, on TV talk shows, and in books written by celebrities. They can be hard to ignore if you want to achieve a healthy weight.

Are You Game?


High school athletics consumes a major amount of time for many families. To put it in perspective, more than 60 percent of high school students in Missouri are involved in high school athletics. It’s a great way to get engaged and be active, but also can result in injury. There are many ways to keep your children safe while they are involved in sports. Safety is a matter of understanding possible risks and taking the recommended safety precautions.

When Care Can’t Wait

Even when we take good preventive care of ourselves, unexpected injuries and illnesses will happen. Fortunately, Boone Hospital Center and Boone Medical Group are here for you and your family, with many options for same-day medical care, including primary care providers, convenient care and our hospital’s emergency department.
