Agoraphobia: Being Confined To A Room

Agoraphobia is a mental health condition that makes one experience an intense fear of leaving their premises. The person is terrified of going outside their homes, and can also feel that it is hard to escape a certain place. Agoraphobia can take many shapes and is accompanied by chronic anxiety and panic attacks.

Example: If a person has a panic attack at a subway, they may start to avoid going to a subway, associating it with fear.

Origins of basketball
  • In 1891, James Naismith, a physical education teacher, created a new game to keep his students engaged during the winter months. The game had to be playable indoors and accommodate several players at once. It needed to provide exercise without a chance for more severe injuries.
  • Two peach baskets nailed to the lower rail of the gymnasium balcony served as goals. The students would play on teams to try and get a ball into their team's basket. The first game was a complete brawl.
  • During the first game, the students were tackling, kicking and punching. One boy was knocked out, some had black eyes, and one had a dislocated shoulder. Afterwards, they nagged Naismith to let them play again.
  • He created some rules and continued to modify them into 13 rules - known as the original 13 rules. Some of the original rules are still part of the modern game today.
Changing the three-meals-a-day norm

Many people eat three meals a day. But we don't have to eat this way.

In trying to find a new routine while working from home, many Americans are drawn to eating a Big Meal once a day when they're ready to have it. A Big meal is large and can be eaten at any time of the day, typically in the late afternoon. It is not a diet, just a convenient way of eating.

Sunshine is intimately tied to mood

Sunshine has repeatedly been found to increase moods, dampen negative moods and reduce tiredness.

People are happier and more helpful when the sun is out. A study showed that Minnesota diners tip more generously in sunny weather and American studies observed better daily stock returns on sunny days. Sunshine also affect our mental sharpness.

Singing and driving is good for your health
  • Music can increase antibodies that boost your immunity and protect your body against bacteria.
  • A 2017 study of choir members found that singing in a group improved a person's well-being. It created a social connection and cognitive stimulation.
  • Singing and driving is a fun alternative to meditating and other forms of stress management.
  • By listening to music, drivers can replace negative thoughts with more positive thoughts through rhythm and beats.
  • Boosting your metabolism
  • Improving your physical performance
  • Helping you with your nutrient intake (the vitamins B2, B3, B5, manganese, and potassium are all found in coffee)
  • Lowering your risk of developing type 2 diabetes
  • Helping fight depression symptoms
  • Providing a source of antioxidants
The Keto diet is named after ketones

Ketones are products of the fat metabolism that occurs when the body is running low on carbohydrates and proteins as sources of energy.

Ketones can cross the blood-brain barrier and act as a substitute for glucose to supply the brain with essential energy.

Contagious yawning

Whenever someone yawns near you, you may find it near impossible not to yawn.

New studies found the reason we battle to stop a yawn appears to reside in the brain area that's responsible for motor function. The urge to yawn when you see someone else doing it is known as echophenomenon - the automatic imitation of another person. Other types of echophenomena include echolalia - imitation of words, and echopraxia - imitations of actions.

Losing your inner monologue

Your inner monologue is where you tell yourself, "I don't want to get up yet," or "This is a tasty burger."

Aphasia from Ancient Greek means "without speech." Typically aphasia occurs after a stroke. Reduced blood flow or bleeding causes brain cells to start dying, but the neural transmitters signal the brain's neurons to keep firing, even as they starve from lack of oxygen. Any brain cells killed during this time can't come back.

Food affects the environment

Eating healthy food is almost always also the best for the environment.

Researchers say poor diets seriously harm people and the planet. Foods such as fruit, vegetables, beans, and whole grains are best for avoiding disease and protecting the climate and water resources, while red and processed meat cause the most ill health and pollution.
