How to stay safe and sane during coronavirus isolation, according to science
People who suspect they may have come into contact with the coronavirus are being advised to self-isolate (stay at home) for 14 days. For some people, the idea of self-isolation may seem like a dream come true. For others, the idea of being cut off from the outside world, alone, or with only a few close family members, will fill them with dread – ask any parent who has had to entertain two small children at home on a wet afternoon.
When people are stuck indoors for long periods of time, they can report getting “cabin fever” or feel like they are going “stir crazy.” Observations from actual or simulated space missions or people living in confined spaces, such as those spending a winter on polar stations, also suggest that some people may find self-isolating more difficult than others. However, there are some simple measures that you can take to help you adapt.
1. Boost your immune system
Research on the effects of loneliness suggests that when people lack social connections they are more likely to suffer from physical health problems. For example, older adults who can’t leave their homes due to impaired mobility are more susceptible to illness, such as heart disease. And studies have found that polar research crews can suffer from reductions in their immune system.

Healthy Protein Sources

Category: 

Healthy protein does not mean mixing up protein powders every morning. In fact, I discourage my clients from using this shortcut. Many protein powders have a lot of added sugar and other artificial ingredients.

Harvard Health warns of some possible hidden dangers of using this protein :

What are the Risks?

There are numerous risks to consider when using a protein powder. Among them:

  • A protein powder is a dietary supplement. The FDA leaves it up to manufacturers to evaluate the safety and labeling of products. So there’s no way to know if a protein powder contains what manufacturers claim.
  • We don’t know the long-term effects. There are limited data on the possible side effects of high protein intake from supplements.
  • It may cause digestive distress. People with dairy allergies or trouble digesting lactose can experience gastrointestinal discomfort if they use a milk-based protein powder.
  • It may be high in added sugars and calories. Some protein powders have little added sugar, and others have a lot (as much as 23 grams per scoop). Some protein powders wind up turning a glass of milk into a drink with more than 1,200 calories.
  • The risk: weight gain and an unhealthy spike in blood sugar. The American Heart Association recommends a limit of 24 grams of added sugar per day for women and 36 grams for men.

Skateboards and e-longboards not only offer a sense of control to the riders, but also offer many health benefits such as flexibility, strengthening body feet and arm muscles, improving nervous system, etc.

And with the transformation from conventional to contemporary ones, they have emerged as a fun and reliable mode of transport for people of all age groups. Also, the perfect braking mechanism allows you to take charge of your speed on any road conditions.
Are you planning to buy an electric longboard or skateboard either for yourself or someone who is already crazy about them? If yes, then it becomes really crucial to know about the motor, price, features, and other nitty gritties related to them.
Here are a few tips that you should consider wile buying your next electric longboard and skateboard:

  1. Weight

Nobody would like to carry a heavy longboard or skateboard along with them. Would you? Generally, these boards weight between 16 and 29 pounds depending on the size of motor and battery used.
While lighter boards are easy to carry, they can be really expensive and can come with lesser battery. So, it’s always advisable to invest in top electric longboards and skateboards for the money in the long-run.
