    January Monthly Health Topic: Healthy Relationships

    Relationships can be full of fun, romance, excitement, intense feelings, and occasional heartache, too. Whether you're single or in a relationship, remember that it's good to be choosy about whom you get close to.

    The keys to a healthy relationship are respect, honesty, trust, equality, and good communication.

    Think about the qualities you value in a friendship and see how they match up with the ingredients of a healthy relationship. If you're already part of a pair, make sure the relationship you're in brings out the best in both of you. If you're wondering whether your relationship is healthy, click here:
