Body Rejuvenation

The body replaces itself with a new set of cells every seven to ten years. This has been discovered by Swedish molecular biologist, Dr. Jonas Frisen.

When it comes to aging, our DNAs remain the same from the day of a cell's birth throughout its lifespan, however, most new atoms are taken in through the air we breathe, the food we consume, and the liquids we intake.

Describing mental fatigue

It is the feeling that your brain just won't function properly. People will describe it as brain fog. You can't concentrate, and simple tasks take too long. You find that the things you could do in a short time in the morning now take forever.

Mental fatigue can be acute or chronic. Acute fatigue can be relieved after a short period of rest. If allowed to continue, it can become chronic fatigue and eventually lead to burnout.

The Sleep-Wake Cycle

A chronotype is what a person's sleep cycle calls under, whether they're a night owl, an early bird, or somewhere in between.

One's chronotype is determined by a combination of nature and nurture. Respectively, one's genes determine whether one prefers to be awake late at night or early in the morning; whereas nurture is how we choose our lifestyle.

Can a night owl turn into an early bird?

Being in a bad place mentally is extremely difficult when going through it alone, however, the good thing about the modern world is it offers three main sources for solace:

  1. Psychiatric medicine
  2. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
  3. Psychotherapy.

Another day has passed and it's time to wind yourself down again. Meditation changes our state of mind. It can energize you, soothe calmness into you, or even both. It allows our bodies to become present in the moment.

If meditation isn't for you, there are other ways to sooth yourself like the box-breathing method, or yoga.

  • In 1864, Louis Pasteur developed the technique to heat wine before aging it to kill microbes and reduce its acidity. Hence, the name pasteurization.
  • However, the process itself has been around way before Louis Pasteur. It was popularly used in China to preserve wine in 1117AD.
  • The main reason why it is named in his honor is due to his research that pointed towards microorganisms as the culprit for spoilage and disease that led to the Germ Theory of Disease.

Certain people, such as athletes, may require more than the minimum recommendation of 0.8g per kilo of bodyweight. The problem is that when we think more protein is better, we don't know when to stop. This fixation with protein can ultimately become a form of an eating disorder.

Adding extra protein beyond our needs tends to shorten our lifespan. It can also harm people with underlying kidney or liver problems.

The silver lining of tragedies

In our culture, there's this idea that going through a disaster can be good for you and make you stronger.

After experiencing loss or trauma, people usually report feeling a greater appreciation for life, closer relationships; they feel stronger, more spiritual and more inspired.

Do we actually grow from adversity?

The History Of The Treadmill
  1. Introduced in the late 1st century in Ancient Rome as a Roman treadmill crane, the treadmill was initially used to lift or transport heavy objects.
  2. In the 19th century, farmers used a treadmill based mechanism to better utilize the pulling power of a horse(coining the term horsepower).
  3. Smaller versions of the horse treadmills were used by dogs, sheep and goats for churning butter, grinding stones, fanning mills and also for separation of creams.
  4. The Victorian Era saw prison treadmills where prisoners used to work the wheel to grind corn or pump water.
Describing a food craving

A food craving can be described as an intense and sometimes uncontrollable desire for a specific food. This desire can leave a person unsatisfied until they have tasted that particular food.

New research suggests it may be possible to turn off the pleasure feelings we experience from eating specific foods, reducing cravings.

Can you manipulate your brain to stop your food cravings?
