It's that time of year again.  The days are shorter (and colder) and for many, that means an increase in sadness and depression and a decrease in energy.

Whether you're struggling with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or trying to fight the winter blues, we'd like to offer some relief!

For 2 weeks, starting on 1/18, we'll post a daily tip aimed at helping you beat the blues!  Sign up by replying below and we'll send you a PM every day, for 14 days that includes expert ideas as well as as some of your fellow member's favorite mood boosters.

Every mom who signs up for the challenge and responds to each day's activity will be entered to win a $50 gift card to Spafinder.com.  One mom will win!

So sign up today and let's show the blues who's boss!
