Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) And How It Works

The fMRI employs a magnetic field to collect information about the body. It is one of the most prominent methods in neuroscience for studying the structure of the brain, including differences in the structural characteristics of different people's brains.

It works with a system that produces images of the brain's functions that indicates whether the activity of neurons is increased or decreased in specific parts of the brain and under which conditions.

Health

We don't exercise, even if we know it is good for us

We all know exercise is good for us but we don't do it. A 2018 survey showed that 50 percent of adults and 73 percent of high school students report that they don't meet the minimum levels of physical activity.

We realise that much of the health industry gives conflicting advice on how much exercise we need, what kind, and how to get motivated.

Behavioral Psychology And Weight Loss

Behavioral psychology deals with analyzing patterns in our actions and behaviors to understand why we act in a certain way.

Whether it is not waking up early, eating junk food, or not going to the gym, we can learn from the science of behavioral psychology and use the various techniques to successfully lose weight.

Tips for Getting Back to Sleep
  • Put the phone away: a big obstacle in your way is light.
  • Ignore the clock: it’s only add to your stress.
  • Don’t be afraid to get up: Do some stretching, light reading or a puzzle.
  • Engage in deep breathing exercises: in through your nose and out of your mouth in a rhythmic cycle.
  • Focus on what relaxes you: focus on mental images of what's most relaxing to you.
Psychotherapy

... is the method of treating those who suffer from emotional and psychological problems.

This method of treatment isn't exactly brand new and contrary from popular belief it wasn't invented during the 20th century.

  • Try to structure your day so that you have some feelings of control.
  • Consider using the time to learn new skills.
  • Stay in touch with friends and family.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Respect the privacy and space of those you live with.
  • Get some fresh air.
Eating disorders and exercise addiction

Research shows that people with an eating disorder are nearly four times as likely to become addicted to exercise.

Exercise addiction is defined as an obsessive approach to fitness that could harm someone's health and social life.

Prevent Tiredness

General tiredness affects the majority of people.

Here are a few basic ideas to have all-day energy:

  1. Respect your body's sleep cycle
  2. Move around
  3. Moderate coffee intake.
Removing caffeine from coffee

Coffee beans are first softened in hot water or steam. Then caffeine is dissolved from the beans by using a solvent such as methylene chloride, ethyl acetate, or a gentler solvent such as water itself.

Liquid carbon dioxide is a much more expensive alternative, but has the added advantage that it does not remove the flavour molecules.

The body positivity movement

Body positivity is the idea that all people deserve to have a positive body image, regardless of shape, size, and appearance.

The major goals of the body positivity movement include:

  • Challenging how society views the body.
  • Promoting the acceptance of all body shapes, sizes, and appearance.
  • Helping people to build confidence acceptance of their own bodies.
  • Addressing unrealistic body standards.
