We need more Heart…

Yesterday, September 29, was World Heart Day. The focus was not on love; but how to ensure your heart becomes healthier and stays that way. Awareness of Cardiovascular Disease has come a long way, with yet a longer way to go. The bottom line: our lifestyle habits and practices help/hinder how efficiency our heart fuels our body. This organ, no more the size of a fist, is the store house for all the blood we need to function, in different concentrations, in different regions of the body. Talk about a tall order.  The World Heart Federation has tasked us to power our heart: a healthier diet, healthier drinking habits and a no-smoking pledge, all contribute to a healthier heart, and a reduction in the deaths caused by the world’s number one killer.

Are you up for the task?

We send you into your weekends with this quote from Sir William Osler: “the best preparation for tomorrow is today’s work….”. We see this inspiration especially important due to the impending hurricane that is heading our way. PFS cannot stress enough how seriously every declared possible threat should be taken. It is the best way to ensure that lives are protected and as many assets as possible. Let not destruction greet us at our doors, because we did not prepare or we failed to prepare, despite being informed.From the Meteorological Service, the country should be alerted and start making the necessary preparations and contingency plans in place. Starting as Tropical Storm, Matthew is now a hurricane (a category 3, as today’s news shows). Has anyone felt like this fervid heat has been jacked up a notch? Anyone? It is being pondered by scientists, the correlation between the effects of global warming and the strength of a hurricane. All in well, this doesn’t bring good tidings to our country’s situation.

This about sums up PFS’ wishes for you this weekend. In a time like this, we encourage communities to work together and show more love for each other, so we all can survive.
conscoius-spending
Our spending this weekend is to purchase mostly (ideally, only) non-perishable food items, three (3) days worth for your family. Ideally, electricity should not be used during heavy rain/lightning etc, so to be on the safe side, stay away from purchasing anything that may have to be stored in the refrigerator.

If possible, have a power box, that can charge your essential communication devices (only) in the event of a power outage. If you can’t stretch that far, keep your phones fully charged and minimize its use to important communications to preserve the battery.

safe
This is the weekend PFS wishes for you and your loved ones. God bless!!!
