It's vacation season! Vacations are a great chance to catch up with friends and family in a new city, or even just a great chance to get away from it all. But no matter where you're headed, vacationing is definitely a great time to relax, unwind and indulge. Whether you've been hard at work on your fitness goals all year long, or you just started your journey - an upcoming vacay can be a tempting time to jump ship from healthy eating for the land of over-indulge-me.

It was a magical night at Atlanta's Buckhead Theatre for EDIN's - Eating Disorders Information Network's 2017 Celebrity Dance Challenge. Fashioned after shows like Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance, the annual event brought together Atlanta's top celebrities and professional dancers for a night to remember. Hosted by Christi Paul of CNN & Paul Milliken, Road Warrior of FOX 5’s Good Day Atlanta, the event raised over $132,000 to become EDIN's most successful event to date. Funds raised from the Celebrity Dance Challenge go on to help EDIN to present to various communities and age groups in Georgia, from elementary students to medical professionals. And this year, we were proud to have our very own Creative Director, Shane Smith, participate with a samba performance with Brazilian born beauty guru, Milly Marques of Sweet Peach Wax & Sugaring Studio in Buckhead.

It's National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. While eating disorders haven't been taken as seriously as some other disorders, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder. And, 30 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life. “Eating disorders can hide in plain sight and frequently go undiagnosed until someone’s health is at significant risk. These are life-threatening bio-psycho-social illnesses, not a ‘lifestyle choice.’" said Claire Mysko, interim CEO of NEDA. With roots in Buddhist teachings, since the introduction of mindfulness in Western clinical settings, a large number of studies have documented its beneficial effect on psychological distress and well-being. So in honor of #nedawareness week, we're sharing our top 3 tips for mindful eating. If you find the tips helpful, be sure to LIKE or SHARE on Facebook or Twitter! And don't forget, you can help support this incredible cause by voting for #millyshane in EDIN's Celebrity Dance Challenge. We need your support! :)
