Good health is always important, but it tends to be on our minds more than usual during cold and flu season.

Coughs, aches, strep, you name it — it’s hard to focus on long-term health when you’re sniffling and sneezing along the way.

On top of that, bad weather and busy schedules can really conspire to derail our best health-related intentions in fall and winter. These months are full of celebrations: Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years — the festivities are great, but the holiday foods can make it hard to stick to a healthy diet.

And even if you can find the time to work out, who wants to go outside when it’s dark at 5:30 p.m. and there’s snow on the ground?

If you need a reminder of the importance of a healthy diet and regular exercise — not to mention self care — in the coming months, check out these 14 quotes.
