Exercising while wearing your mask. What research says about it.

Around the world, masking rules and regulations continue to evolve. As gyms open and close or capacity limits decrease, individuals need to continue to be cautious and respectful of others. Fortunately, research suggests that it is safe for healthy individuals to wear a mask while exercising while reducing the risk of contracting or transmitting COVID-19. In general, it is recommended that individuals start exercising at a lower intensity to get used to wearing a face-covering before returning to regular levels of intensity. In one study , subjects were perceived to have less airflow while wearing a mask during exercise, but the data showed no difference in blood, tissue or muscle oxygenation levels. This may be caused by psychological factors such as feeling claustrophobic or thinking there would be a decreased airflow and therefore their rating of perceived exertion (RPE) was higher. When to wear a mask: Always when inside unless you’re by yourself or in your home Outside if others

Lack of sleep causes our bodies to age rapidly. Sleeping less than 5 hrs a night can age your heart by 10 yrs.  A single night sleep of fewer than 4 hrs can drop your natural killer cells (that attack cancer cells) by 70%.  Sleep well to give your body the much-deserved rest!                Eat your food mindfully Chewing slowly stimulates the production of saliva & helps in the breakdown of food, reducing stress on the oesophagus & enabling the stomach to metabolize food better It aids in digestion, combats acidity & helps avoid overeating.

Mental Health and how it is affecting students during the pandemic.

  What is the first thing that pops up in your mind when you hear “Mental health”? Is it anxiety? Stress? Workload? It could be anything.  By definition, mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Now, you may ask how is it caused? Mental health issues can be caused by literally anything to literally anybody. You would not be even able to realize the person you’re sitting next to might be in trauma.  Some of the very common causes are:  childhood abuse, trauma, or neglect. social isolation or loneliness. experiencing discrimination and stigma. social disadvantage, poverty, or debt. bereavement (losing someone close to you) severe or long-term stress. having a long-term physical health condition. unemployment or losing your job.

Health: Expectations vs. Reality

When someone first becomes an adult they suddenly feel as though their life had begun. Because they were free from the reigns of their parents and began to make decisions about what was important to them and how long, hard, or far they wanted to push themselves in order to get what it is that does matter. This newfound independence can often come with some not-so-great habits too: skipping sleep or forgetting about proper nutrition can lead to preoccupation with weight gain or loss. But for many people, their perception of health doesn't match up with reality - and the gap between expectations and realities can be scary. So is it just a matter of habit ?

Or is this just more evidence proving what some experts have been saying for years: there's not enough motivation out there when it comes to public health and getting fit.  When going through your day, you
