We often take for granted the people in our lives that walk with us on our journey. We expect them to be there and it’s easy to forget how quickly time passes – these years that turn into decades. The older we get, the faster time seems to slip through our fingers. The narrow center of the hourglass changes shape – widening – and once regimented sand starts to tumble through. When we feel this, we start to narrow in on the things in life that really matter. As Valentine’s Day is approaching, it’s important to hone in on this wisdom and celebrate every moment spent with family and friends. It is truly these joyful experiences that become life’s precious gems.
Also worth cherishing is the gift of health. As we age, we open ourselves up to more possibility and change. We also become susceptible to illnesses and find strength in our vulnerability as the things that may have worried us in earlier years become small by comparison. We start to shift our perspective and priorities to more important things and pay closer attention to health. Prevention is key as is the understanding of how we can take care of ourselves in our present condition.
February is Heart Month and we are proud to partner with the Heart and Stroke Foundation to increase awareness in our community. We have scheduled blood pressure and hypertension clinics all month long and we are giving away a complimentary pedometer with your screening. Bring your loved ones with you for a check up and walk together in the name of health, happiness and longevity.
We at Heart Pharmacy believe in building a healthy community and supporting the best quality of life so that you can enjoy yourself and all of the beautiful moments. We hope that along your journey, you stop to smell the roses, hear the music and feel the abundance of love. Happy Valentine’s Day!
