Reasons To Practice Extreme Sports

Reasons To Practice Extreme Sports
  • The Thrill of Risk-Taking: the danger in extreme sports releases adrenaline, giving the athlete a 'high' so to speak, it also brings some social status.
  • Accomplishment and Respect: trying to complete an event brings feelings of competition and completing it earns respect as many live off the excitement of watching others perform things that they couldn't possibly see themselves doing.

Benefits

It is never too late to start running. Many take up this sport in their 50s and beyond. To start, you only need a good pair of running shoes and a desire.

Running is a very effective...

Types of running

  • Road Running: running on paved roads, paths, and sidewalks.
  • Treadmill Running: easier than outdoor running and can be gentler on your joints.
  • Racing. Road races can vary from 5Ks to half or full marathons or even ultramarathons. 
  • Trail Running: it takes place on hiking trails, from deserts to mountains.
  • Track Running. Track events include shorter distance races from the 50-yard dash to 400-meter sprints. 

Getting Started

  • Invest in Shoes and Gear. Visit a specialty running store to get fitted for the best shoes for you and check out gear such as running shorts, tops, or tights made of wicking fibers.
  • Stay Safe. Do a warmup before you start, like a walk or an easy jog for 5 min.
  • Follow running safety advice, such as going against traffic when running on roads. Always carry some form of identification with you.
  • Use the Run/Walk Method. Start with running for one minute, then walk for one minute. Try to increase the running intervals over time.
  • Make It Manageable. Keep a conversational pace during each workout. If you can't speak in a full sentence, slow down. Breathe through your nose to get enough oxygen.

Three different sides of risk

  • The odds you will get hit.
  • The average consequences of getting hit.
  • The tail-end consequences of getting hit.

The first two are...

The tail-end consequences

The tail-end consequences of an action or event (those with low-probability, high-impact) are all that matter.

In investing, the average consequences of risk make up most of the daily news headlines. But the tail-end consequences of risk (for example, pandemics and depressions) are what make the pages of history books.

The Power Of The Moon On Humans
  • The belief of the moon's power to drive the emotions and feelings of human beings is well-documented.
  • Lunacy is the word describing madness, directly connecting it to ...

The Effects Of The Lunar Cycle

  • Human beings tend to have disturbed sleep during full moon nights, even if they are not aware of the fact and didn’t see it.
  • Many studies for research the effect of the lunar cycle on human beings produced mixed results.
  • For every study that confirms the phenomenon, there are also many studies that debunk it.
  • The effect of the cycle on tides suggests that it can affect our bodies, which are 60 percent water.
  • Animal bite incidents double during full moon days, something that has perplexed researchers.

Full Moon Effect: Confirmation Bias

Many claims that link a change in human and animal behaviour during full moon nights may be related to confirmation bias, a tendency to fit new information into something that is already believed to be true.

The idea of the full moon creating havoc in our minds, making us sleepless and violent is a legend that went mainstream, and could likely be stories of just a few people who are affected by the lunar force, and need to be studied more.
