For the brain
1. Deep breath and count to 10
If you are angry or nervous, try to calm yourself down by counting to 10 and breathing deeply. Anger causes headaches, stress on the heart, and raises blood pressure.
2. Limit Netflix Watching
You ask, what else to do in quarantine, but watching TV shows does not activate neural connections. In general, the brain seems to be constantly "lying on the couch." Instead of watching TV shows, it is better to read a book, a training article, or solve crosswords. This will keep your brain in a constant tone.
3. Mono- and polyunsaturated fats
Add foods such as butter, olive oil, fish, and cheese to your diet. These foods are also good for the brain and are delicious.
4. Lutein - a little doctor for your eyes
Include foods that contain lutein in your diet: green leafy vegetables, orange peppers and sweet corn, broccoli, persimmons, dark grapes, avocados, spinach, eggs. If you are unable to add these foods to your diet, you can take lutein as a dietary supplement. This substance reduces the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.
For women's health
5. Darkness is a friend of melatonin
To reduce the risk of tumors, the body produces a special hormone called melatonin. In turn, melatonin is produced when we sleep in complete darkness, so experts recommend completely turning off the lights in the bedroom during sleep.
