6. Work in a standing position at every opportunity.
The research of British scientists among bus drivers and conductors has shown that spending the whole day in a driver’s seat is much more harmful than walking along a bus. Hypodynamia has a very negative effect on the cardiovascular system. In a body suffering from a lack of movement, blood transports nutrients and oxygen at half the speed.
During a working day, one should use any opportunity to stretch his muscles. For example, having a walk during a lunch break or doing a little physical exercise. Recently, the idea of a “standing desk” (working in a standing position) has become more popular.
5. Eat apple peel.
Eating more greens, fruits, and vegetables will not harm anyone. But perhaps apples are worth paying a little more attention to. They contain quercetin, a substance that has antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, and other useful properties. Moreover, they protect the brain cells from damage, which means that they hinder learning problems.
4. Handwritten notes improve mental abilities.
Not only is it useful to draw but to take notes by hand. The results of research by the State University of Indiana prove that taking notes longhand develops mental abilities such as psychomotor coordination, attention, memory, and so on. While writing, the parts of the brain that are responsible for reading activate as well. This doesn’t happen when taking notes on a laptop.
3. Do not brush your teeth within an hour of eating.
Many dentists are convinced that brushing your teeth right after eating is comparable to trying to remove dental plaque with sandpaper. Any food (especially citrus fruits, fruits containing acids, tomatoes, sports drinks, and sodas) makes the enamel of our teeth more sensitive to external influences. By breaking this rule, we let acids penetrate into the deep layers of our teeth.Eventually, this will lead to cavities forming. The solution is to rinse the mouth with plain water.
