Self-isolation frees up time and encourages creativity: everyone around is gushing with new ideas. If nothing fresh and interesting comes to your mind, it's probably a matter of habits.
1. You do not move much
If you work remotely and relax in the evening, lying on the couch, you may notice a decline in productivity. When a person moves a little, the brain receives less oxygen. Hence the fatigue, decreased performance, drowsiness. Sports will help: during them, oxygen enters the brain - due to this it works better than the diet. Plus regular workouts increase size of hippocampus and improves memory the hippocampus is the part of the brain that is responsible for attention and long-term memory. By the way, in order to be engaged, it is not at all necessary to leave the house, it is enough just to ventilate the room well before and after training.
2. You think too much and analyze
Remember how often you do not do something because you worry about the opinions of others. Compare yourself with others and do not start the task just because you are afraid to fail beforehand. Or sort through all the old failures and mistakes in your head. Such thoughts only interfere, and you need to get rid of them.
3. You are eating wrong
If you often cannot concentrate, constantly feel tired or sad, start to memorize worse, and have difficulty controlling emotions, you may be eating too much sweet food.
4. You do not have enough inspiration
You do not know where to get ideas, everything seems too mundane and uninteresting. Because of this, you do the work and daily tasks on the machine, leaving no room for improvisation and creativity.
5. You have a mess on your desktop
If you are sitting at the table right now, take a look around. A pile of papers, a mug with cooled coffee, books, a thousand pens, a mountain of souvenirs - if you saw any of this, it’s time for cleaning. Disorder negatively affects attention, interferes with work and come up with new ideas.
6. You are constantly busy with something
If you don’t work, then sit on social networks, read books, watch videos, TV shows or movies. It may seem like a rest to you, but your brain thinks differently. He is constantly busy - receives and processes a huge stream of information, but he simply does not have time and energy to come up with something his own, fresh and interesting.
7. You are lacking in vitamins and minerals
If you do not follow a balanced diet, then you may not get enough useful elements. Hence, not only the lack of productivity and creativity, but also weakness, deterioration in the quality of hair and skin, apathy and other consequences.
Now hygiene in the apartment needs to be monitored more carefully than ever. Especially if the family has children, allergies and people of age, and pets still live at home. But you can once again stretch your legs and not grow to the sofa!
This is what Bemorepanda suggest you!
1. Use natural remedies
Cleaning products must be chosen meticulously, even if you do not have allergies or hypersensitive skin. Chemicals in detergents can be harmful to the health of all. Try not to use products that contain these compounds:
- Polyphosphates They can disrupt the barrier functions of the skin, cause allergies and damage to the respiratory tract. They pollute the environment, falling into nature with sewage water.
- Chlorine. Very volatile and toxic, accumulates in the tissues of the body and can cause various health problems.
- Ammonia. May cause mucosal burns and respiratory problems. Often found in window cleaning products.
- Artificial Flavors. May irritate the airways and cause headaches, especially for allergy sufferers. It is better to buy fragrance-free detergents.
In order not to bring home dangerous cleaners, try to take organic products or household chemicals marked "for children." In addition, do not forget about traditional remedies: for example, vinegar removes spots well, soda copes with scale, essential oils aromatize the air. Use good microfiber brushes and rags that wash everything with little or no household cleaning.
2. Vacuum furniture
Dust is not only what you see on the surface of shelves and tables. Dust particles eat into furniture upholstery and textiles and stand in an invisible cloud every time you sit on a sofa. This can cause respiratory irritation, coughing, asthma, or allergies. To breathe clean air, regularly vacuum upholstered chairs, sofas, and upholstered chairs. Remember to clean the mattress every few months. In the period when all the homework all day in the apartment, it is better to vacuum upholstered furniture once a week. Especially if you have furry pets who love to wallow with you on the couch.
3.Change bedding often
Bed linen should be washed at least once every 10 days. If you sweat in a dream, then more often, about once a week, since a moist environment promotes the growth of bacteria. Now there will be even more unpleasant, but truthful information. At night, our body goes through cell renewal processes. This means that the old epithelium is actively dying off, giving way to new skin integuments. The skin particles have nowhere to go except to stay on sheets and blankets.
4. Wash the bathroom thoroughly.
Bathroom is a place with high humidity. In such an environment, fungus and mold quickly multiply, which can be dangerous for allergy sufferers and people with weak immunity. Pay particular attention to the seams at the joints between the tiles: mold often accumulates in them.
5. Clean your refrigerator and kitchen shelves regularly.
Even if you are attentive to the issue of food storage, from time to time it happens to forget a rotten apple in a fruit box or not to notice how open cottage cheese has deteriorated. Bacteria, mold, fungi are frequent inhabitants of any places where food is stored. They can cause food poisoning, an upset stomach, or an allergic reaction.
6. Ventilate the apartment
When all family members spend most of their time at home, it is especially important to often air the rooms. The fact is that if many people breathe in a confined space, CO2 levels increase in the air.
7. Wet more often.
A powerful vacuum cleaner will help get rid of dust, but the final chord of cleanliness always remains with wet cleaning - washing floors and other surfaces. This procedure removes dust and balances dry air. After washing the floors in the apartment it will be easier to breathe. In addition, this is the only way to get rid of all the dirt and germs under your feet.
This is what the school looks like during the coronavirus pandemic . What rules should students in Germany follow?
The pandemic that took over 250,000 lives in just four months and contaminated over 3.7 million earthlings turned everything upside down! On Monday, May 4, schools in Germany opened their doors. But the traditional noise during breaks did not resound in the hallways. The children obeyed the rules imposed by the COVID-19 terror.
Before the pandemic, school and high school courtyards resounded with the merry laughter of children. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has ordered schools and high schools to open on May 4, after closing their doors in early March.
But the children discovered a rigid environment, in which the rules imposed by the measures to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus put play, jokes and childhood in the background. The 10th grade students at the Schillerschule in Ettlingen have been preparing for exams since last week. On Monday, May 4, the little ones from the gymnasium and primary school also showed up at the same school.
The hallways of the school were marked with yellow stripes and posters with strict instructions were mounted on the walls: keeping a distance of 1.5 meters, using face masks, gloves and regular hand washing.
According to Deutsche Welle, only children in the final grades were able to go to school on May 4, to avoid the congestion of educational institutions. The benches for two students were used for one child and the whole school is subjected to a strict disinfection ritual performed at three key times of the day: in the morning, at noon, between shifts and in the evening. At the entrance to the classrooms, pumps with alcohol-based disinfectants were installed.
The fear in the souls of parents who send their children to school is indescribable. And in China, primary and secondary schools opened their doors on April 27. Even high school students were able to return to campuses on April 27, and students will resume classes on May 11. The rules for distancing and preventing the spread of the new coronavirus are strictly observed. In primary school, parents made children's one meter long sticks to be worn as "wings" on the back that would force other classmates not to get closer than a meter.
