Health goes beyond our personal wellbeing. Stress comes at us externally as much and sometimes more than internally. How would you have ever guessed thirty or forty years ago that by year 2011 you could be tracked anywhere and your President of these United States could bust in at a moments notice and give you instructions as to what to do in the event of an emergency? Stay in tune with what is coming down the pike. Here are a few tidbits that can reduce that externally created stress.
November 9th  is EAS Test Time – Emergency Alert System [EAS] is conducting a nationwide test on this day at 2 pm EST. Now don’t be shocked when “The View” turns into a diabolical sounding siren and all TV—network and cable—will shut down. This is the system that gives our President the full range of communication in the event of an emergency. This is a very good, healthful and beneficial test. Should the system be needed in an emergency, we need to know it is working.
GPS Safety – Did you know that if you twitter where you are leaving from, your SmartPhone tells every follower including no-good crooks in your vicinity or within driving distance that you aren’t at home and it is ripe for the robbing? So word of caution, don’t tweet to all your friends about meeting you at a local pub or that you’ve arrived at your destination. Nor should they tweet back to tell you they are out the door and on their way. Within minutes the health of your home could be stripped of the warmth, privacy and treasures that you enjoy everyday. You don’t know the feeling of being violated until a home robbery takes it from you or you are being tailed by unwanted threatening characters whose motives are less than desirable.
Do Not Call Registry – Tired of those annoying daily telemarketing calls? I sure am. They used to come mostly at the dinner hour. Now they bombard you throughout the day. And what is going to be an even greater annoyance, they are starting to invade our cell phones. Yes, our cell phones, the same instrument that you use for your alarm clock, calculator and Internet news. When it rings or buzzes in the middle of the night, it can make you jump straight out of bed in a fit of disorientation and extreme irritation if not outright anger. It’s called invasion of privacy.
Here’s where you can go to put yourself PERMANENTLY on the DO NOT CALL LIST! It is easy, free and you can do all your phones at the same time. So long telemarketers!
