Heatwave

A heatwave is a prolonged period of abnormally high surface temperatures compared to the average maximum temperature. Heatwaves may occur over several weeks and cause weather-related mortality.

Increased heatwaves are associated with climate change. Heatwaves are characterised by low humidity - which may worsen drought conditions, or high humidity, which may cause heat-related stress, which includes heat exhaustion, dehydration, and heatstroke.

Stashed ideas

2 IDEAS

Eye fatigue

If you’ve felt that nagging pain behind your eyes after staring at your digital devices all day, you’ve probably experienced it, too. Often, it manifests in the form of:

  • Achy, tired, itchy, burning, dry, or watery eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Trouble keeping your eyes open
  • Heightened light sensitivity
  • Headaches, especially a dull ache around your eyes.
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  • Having a recommended type of wine with a certain dish is now outdated due to our changed eating habits (now many people go for shared plates for example and the sommelier has the impossible task of finding one bottle that pairs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.
When sleeping problems are increasing

According to a meta-analysis, about 40% of the population has had sleep problems during the pandemic.

We know to keep a consistent schedule, avoid alcohol, caffeine and bright lights before bed and practice other sleep habits. But it is not enough to solve chronic insomnia. Our brains need to feel safe and secure to be able to fall asleep.
