I am blessed to work for a company that provides flu shots for all employees who want them. They also offer shots to family members at a discount. I caught the flu several years ago. It came on really fast while I was at work. By the time I got home I could barely move, and it had me down for a week. Sadly, I know others whose lives were lost at the hands of the flu. Don’t be a victim. Doctor permitting, get your flu shot, too!
Did you get your flu shot?
Working to prepare a major business presentation, I didn’t post a single P-A-D last week. Long hours, nights full of intermittent sleep, and running on adrenaline are all stresses to the body. Thankfully, my company offers a proactive wellness program that includes this cool little device, called a “Ped”, that attaches to our shoes and keeps track of motion. Our goal is 5,000 steps per day; that’s a lot! But take a 3-mile walk on a lovely February day in Texas and the goal is achieved, causing the Ped to reward its user with this cool little light show. By midday, I had taken 6,364 steps. And it felt good.
