86 STASHED IDEAS

  • The main culprit of eye fatigue is blue light. The devices we use — phones, tablets, laptops, TV, or even LEDs and fluorescent lighting — emit a strong blue light. 
  • Eye fatigue isn’t limited to screen exposure; it can also happen if you’re reading a book for long hours.
  • When you view something up close, a muscle inside your eye — known as the ciliary muscle — contracts and changes the shape of your lens to help you focus and see clearly. This function is called accommodation. After hours of being contracted, that muscle gets tired and begins to ache.

Losing fitness

We become unfit much quicker than it took to get in shape. To understand how the body becomes unfit, we need to understand how we become fit.

The key to becoming fitter is to do more than our body is used to. The stress from this makes us become more tolerant, leading to higher fitness levels. Some studies show that just six sessions of interval training can increase maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max) and improve the body's ability to fuel itself.

Pairing Of The Wine With The Dish
  • Asking the sommelier or server to recommend the best wine to go with the ordered food is based on the idea that asking a wine professional will provide a pairing that will unlock the full potential of the food, and of course, taste delicious.
  • Having a recommended type of wine with a certain dish is now outdated due to our changed eating habits (now many people go for shared plates for example and the sommelier has the impossible task of finding one bottle that pairs with seven different things).
  • There is no secret code for choosing wine. People’s palates are inherently personal (we have different sensitivities to certain flavors and aromas), so there is no such thing as an objectively perfect pairing.
  • Try to sleep for seven to nine hours a night.
  • Keep consistent wake-up and bedtimes.
  • Keep the bedroom cool, quiet and dark.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and exercise before bed.
  • Turn off your screens 30 to 60 minutes before you need to sleep.
Treating muscle pain
  • A hot compress. Applying heat to the area is an effective way to treat muscle pain. It can be a hot-water bottle or a microwaveable bean bag.
  • Refrain from pressing on tight, sore spots. It most likely will only give you short-term results and be uncomfortable. Exercising seems to provide longer-term improvement.
  • Weight lifting. Research suggests the most effective way of treating muscle pain is low-intensity weight training.
