Life today is lived at 100 miles per hour. Whether it's pressures from work or keeping up with the latest trend on social media, there is always something trying to grab your attention. The result? Stress, tiredness and burnout. It's no wonder that so many are struggling to cope with everything modern life throws our way, and thanks to connected devices, we can never really get away from work or anything else.
Stay in the human comfort zone for a good night’s sleep
Sleep is an incredibly complex process that affects virtually all systems of the body. It serves an essential biological function, and it is fundamental to well-being. Without enough rest, you may see short-term health problems such as impaired memory and lack of alertness. If you experience too much sleep deprivation, you may start seeing long-term and serious health problems, including high blood pressure, diabetes, or depression. That is why getting a good night’s sleep should be your priority.
Paying attention to small elements in your laundry might reveal your outlook on life!
In general, paying attention to even minor details may help you improve your life. Take, for example, the task of cleaning electric blankets. The lifecycle of an electric blanket may be extended by carefully cleaning it.
Not only will the electric blanket be cleaner, but it will also be less likely to be damaged when being washed. This saves money, avoids wasting resources (due to the fact that we are extending the lifespan), and allows you enjoy warm and cheerful winter nights.
The year 2021 has been quite challenging. Aside from the ongoing pandemic, the effects of climate change such as wildfires, floods, longer winters, and heat waves have also impacted the lives of various people across the globe. The unprecedented change in our climate has also contributed to a natural gas shortage, which led to an ongoing energy crisis in Europe and it may soon affect communities worldwide. Currently, UK, Germany, France, and Spain are all affected by the shortage. Netherland’s energy prices are also on the rise.
Different people would define history according to how they look at their past, whether as an individual or part of a collective. Whatever you deem significant to the formation of your person and identity is your history. During the height of intolerance in the 17th century, François-Marie Arouet’s definition of history would be different. Better known by his nom de plume Voltaire, the French writer declared that “history is only the register of crimes and misfortunes."
Imagine living in the UK and savouring the last moments of winter, but waking up on the final week of your February to suddenly unrelenting cold and heavy snow. Overnight, your front porch has filled with several inches of snow, and your car looks as if it turned to snow.
Digital eye strain is a 21st-century problem. As technology allows businesses to remain agile and improve collaboration, it comes as no surprise that office workers have increasingly relied on computers to get their tasks done right away. But at what cost?
We have five different senses: eyes to see, ears to hear, nose to smell, tongue to taste, and skin to touch. All of these organs are important ways we interact with and perceive our environment, creating a holistic meaning altogether. Out of these senses, however, we would like to posit that our eyes are the most important.
It's the end of a long week, and you want nothing more than to fall on your bed and call it a day. However, you sit in front of the glowing screens of your laptop or television and rewatch the first season of your favourite TV show. Or you grab your favourite book and read a few chapters. Or you scroll through your favourite social media app, checking what your friends are doing.
Getting enough water every day is important to your wellbeing and necessary for your organ functions. In the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the human adult body is composed of 60% water. Your brain, kidneys, heart and lungs need around 80% of water to function, and your skin needs to be composed of 75% water to maintain its elasticity. As your breathing, digestion, and waste removal depend on your constant rehydration, it is no wonder that you feel lethargic when you're thirsty. Many experts also go as far as saying that you need water more than food if you're lost in the wilderness.
