Here are those 5 strategies to incorporateinto your magical hour before lights out:
Strategy 1 is to turn off all light emittingelectronic devices at least an hour before bedtime.This includes your TV, computer, tablet smart phone.Many of us watch TV or work on the computer to relax at the end of the day.This is a big mistake right before bedtime. Not only does the light suppress your naturalmelatonin production, but these devices actually electrically stimulate the mind rather thanrelaxing it. If your favorite TV show is late at night,consider recording it then viewing it earlier the next day.Strategy 2.
As an alternative to TV watching, try listeningto some soft music or a fiction audio book instead.The soft music helps to set a calming mood. And listening to an audio book can be relaxing.Just ensure that it's a fiction story that requires little cognitive analysis as opposedto a recording that may require excessive processing.Which brings us to strategy 3 Piggy backing off of the previous tip, readingprior to lights out is yet another sleep remedy to consider trying.Spending 15 to 30 minutes losing yourself in a good book can take your mind off theday's stressful events.
I love to unwind at the end of my day withmy Kindle reader. As a side note, avoid reading from a backlitdevice at night such as an iPad. Tablets emit light which suppresses your naturalproduction of melatonin. Using an eReader such as a Kindle which isnot backlit is a better choice. Not into readingéHow about spending some time doing some relaxation exercises or meditation to help calm the mindéOr how journaling in your personal diary jotting down either what you were grateful for thatday or a personal success story that brings about a sense of peace contentmentéStrategy 4.
Is Coffee Bad for You
Hey guys, Axe here. I'm founder of DrAxe ,one of the largest natural health websites in the world. One of the most common questions I've beengetting on my Facebook page as well as my webpage recently is, people have been askingquot; Axe, is coffee good for meéquot; or quot;Is coffee good for youéquot; The answer is yes and no. There's a lot of research, actually, that'sbeen coming out on coffee and coffee is one of the most popular beverages around the worldtoday. But let me just first talk about why coffee can be good for you and then also,why it can be bad for you.
For starters, one of the biggest reasons whycoffee is beneficial is because it contains massive amounts of antioxidants. You know,one of the things that we're exposed to all around the world today is large levels oftoxicity. So antioxidants can really help and slow the aging process, it can help protectyourselves against free radical damage. Coffee is actually one of the five highestfoods in antioxidants in the world today. So again, coffee, incredible in terms of itsantioxidants. Also, coffee increases circulation and can stimulate the liver. So it actuallyhas maybe some supportive benefits for the liver.
Increases circulation, it's been shown toimprove overall exercise. It's been shown to increase blood flow to the brain. So forthose reasons, because of the mass amount of antioxidants and the increase in circulation,that's where the benefits of coffee come from. Now, here are the negatives of coffee. Thebig thing is caffeine and consuming that much caffeine can have a, kind of an addictiveside effect as well as it can overstimulate the body and it can burn out your adrenalglands and really overtax your body. So that's the big negative. For a country in America and then across theworld, 80% of people will suffer with some
form of fatigue or adrenal fatigue sometimein their life. Because of that, if somebody is struggling with fatigue on a regular basisor has thyroid issues, adrenal issues or hormonal issues, for that reason I do not recommendthose people consume coffee because of all of the caffeine that you're going to findthere. Again, that caffeine is really the main issue with coffee is that it will burnout your adrenal glands. Think about this. Do you think you were createdto rely on stimulants all the timeé That's really what caffeine is, it's a stimulant.So doing large amounts of caffeine is not good at all for people with adrenal fatigue,thyroid problems or people with even autoimmune
disorders or other chronic illness, I do notrecommend coffee for those people. But, if you're already generally healthy orlet's say you just struggle with some circulation issues or you're trying to support the brainand you don't have autoimmune disease or any type of thyroid or adrenal issue. In thatcase, consuming coffee in moderate amounts can be fine and even good for your health. Now, when you're consuming coffee, you needto consume it in the morning or before lunch. Because what happens, if you start drinkingit in the afternoon or especially in the evening, the life of coffee and the caffeine and howlong it will affect your body can be around
12 hours. If you're consuming it in the afternoon, itcan definitely affect your sleep cycle that night. Not just you falling asleep, but youroverall quality of sleep while you're trying to sleep that night. So again, is coffee goodé Is it badé The truthis, coffee, it just really depends on your body. It depends on if you have one of theseconditions, coffee can make it worse. Versus if you're looking for a little bit of a pickme up, you're going to do it earlier in the day, you need more antioxidants and circulation,for those reasons, coffee can have some of
Shocking Before and After Fitness Transformation in 5 Hours EXPOSED Furious Pete
we've all seen these pictures inmagazines, on the internet, everywhere of people going from a certain physiqueeither fat or really skinny to a very muscular physique. Most of the time it's veryhard to believe that a certain supplement or maybe training program canreally make you do the exact same thing if you follow the exact program. Nowbefore I get started, I just want to make it clear that the pictures that Ishowed had nothing to do with his tutorial. I want to make it perfectly clear that thephysiques that were altered or were transformed
in those pictures may have actually been the result of theprograms advertised. The reason I'm saying this is because I simply don't want toget sued by those people. Now without further ado, I'm going to show You how I went from this physique To this physique in less than five hours. Now the firststep in this tutorial is to reverse the process. That's right we're going to dothe after picture first and the before picture after.
So here we go! First thing that we haveto do is go to the gym. Make sure you do as many bicep curls, triceps push downs,and chest presses. Make sure you are as vascular humanely possible. Next,jump into a tanning bed and get as tanned up as possible. you want that vascularity to showas much as possible. When you're all done with that tanning bed, go straight home and setup some really good lighting in your basement. Now to prove that this tutorialreally is legitimate I'm showing you the date on a CNN website when I take theafter picture.
here it is Now grab a dumbbell one more time and reallypump it up just so you have that extra vascularity before you take your afterpicture. Next grab a bottle of PAM. that's right, that good old cookingspray and spray the hell out of yourself now you're all shinny. Beautiful. Get ready for a your after picture. there's the after pictures, not sohorrible but we can make that better with a little bit of photoshop
