What to expect this flu season

What to expect this flu season

For the last year and a half, seniors have been keenly aware of the threat from Covid. This seems natural, as the virus has proved especially deadly for people over age 65. Adults over 65 accounted for 80% of Covid hospitalizations and are at a significantly higher risk of death than younger patients. At the same time, this period saw a dramatic decline in the number of influenza cases. It was as if the common “flu” almost disappeared! Last year’s very low level of flu was likely due to social distancing, reduced travel and mask-wearing, all measures taken to try to control Covid. Those measures were also very effective in preventing flu. Nationwide, flu accounted for only about 4 hospitalizations per 100,000 people, compared to the usual rate of 70 hospitalizations per 100,000, and flu-related deaths dropped by 95%. Unfortunately, the outlook for this year’s flu season is not as bright. Several studies have predicted that this year will see an increase...

How to keep your body from looking like a question mark

How to keep your body from looking like a question mark

| Written by Fitworks Perfect Posture | Do you “people watch”? It is human nature to look around and see who and what are in your surroundings. Comparing, noticing, contemplating the data before you, wondering where you fit in; what might have happened to cause that; what can I do to look like that? Some people look straight as an arrow; tall, confident, intelligent. The "Exclamations" in the world wake up feeling great; they are ready to face the day. Their health is excellent, and they keep an active lifestyle. These types of people are more likely to use food as their medicine and keep a more natural or holistic outlook on their health. They also realized at some point that they must exercise specific muscles to balance their body and then stretch daily for long-term muscle and overall health. People who stand tall and straight are sending messages to their brain telling them they are confident, they are successful, they are intelligent. The position...

How to find, follow, and fulfill God’s will

How to find, follow, and fulfill God’s will

| Written by Andrew Wommack | God has a purpose for every single person. Sad to say, most people don’t live with a sense of destiny. They’re doing their own thing and asking God to bless it, or they believe God’s will for their lives will just come to pass because it’s fate. That is not correct, and I’ll explain why.   All my life, I’ve had zero doubt that God created me with a purpose, but I didn’t begin to diligently seek the Lord until my senior year in high school. I read the Bible from cover to cover searching for the formula to figure out God's will for my life. I asked people in our church, and they said, “you’ll just know” and “fate automatically happens.”  I reject that one hundred percent. People like Hitler and Mussolini didn’t live God's purpose for their lives. God intended something totally different for them.   God has a purpose for every person, but it doesn’t just...
