    Some of us likely spent the last couple of months indulging in foods and drinks that are outside of our typical diets. Don't beat yourself up if you overindulged, but take the new year as an opportunity to get back on track. Give yourself some grace and realize that what's best for your physical and mental health is to maintain balance in all aspects of your life. Eric Strom and Susan Farren give some pointers and information on setting goals, the gut-brain connection, and why this is important.
