East Texas Number ONE in sick people.
A Doctor in East Texas said, “People are “NOT” STAYING HOME, if they are sick!”
It’s Common Sense but some people “Forget or Ignore it!”

A warm glow and sense of connection aren’t all you get from volunteering: It can improve your mental health and help you live longer too. A leading researcher explains why.
Most of us know that if we eat our fruit and veggies, exercise often, and avoid smoking, we have a better chance of living longer and healthier lives. But your doctor may not have told you there’s a link between volunteering and health. Published recently in BMC Public Health, the paper finds that volunteering is associated with lower depression, increased well-being, and a 22 percent reduction in the risk of dying.
But there’s more… Go Here for the Story.
An Exercise For You: Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold the there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.
Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags. Then try 50-lb potato bags and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a few minutes. (I’m at this level)
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
Tune Up and join the chorus!

“Andrew-Jaja, of Magee Womens Hospital of UPMC has delivered thousands and thousands of babies, but he welcomes each of them into the world, with a beautiful song,” the hospital says in an intro to a cute video it posted. “From “Happy Birthday,” to “It’s a Wonderful World,” he inherited the tradition from his mentor and he has even delivered a father and son! Dr. Andrew-Jaja delights in the special bond he creates with each and every one of the babies he delivers.”
“Coincidentally, Dr. Andrew-Jaja’s mantra is, “Confront every encounter with a smile on your face and a song in your heart,” and it is one he certainly seems to bring to life,” the hospital says.
