Vitamins and Mental Health
Vitamin deficiency may not be the first thing you think of when considering the causes of mental illness. Doctors and psychiatrists rarely recommend vitamins for these conditions. But, while vital nutrients are unavailable to the brain, this can manifest in ways mimicking mental illness.
Conspiracy Theories: Clickbait or a Threat to Society?
Watching conspiracy theories videos on YouTube is very entertaining and all, although it is very easy to start with videos of UFO sightings and without realizing it it’s just turned 2 AM and you’re watching undeniable proof that Mark Zuckerberg is an alien cyborg sent to earth to control and spy on us through Facebook. Luckily, for most of us, we forget all about it when we close the tab and go to sleep, but there are a lot of people who do not see these theories as science fiction stories but as reality. Crazy right?
Building Model Trains Saved My Life
I remember when I was in school and the whole “what do you want to do when you grow up?” thing started. If you ask me, you shouldn’t be making such big decisions when you’re 17, not even at 20. I never really want to make big decisions, I’m just a 25-year-old kid *giggles uncontrollably*
Self Esteem Is Overrated
In recent times, there has been much more talk about “self-esteem”, how important it is for personal happiness and well-being. While It is true, that to find that oh so fleeting and ever-elusive state of satisfaction and fulfillment, self-love is a key component, to love oneself. This gives rise to one of the most clichéf phrases is that ‘to be able to love others you need to love yourself.’ as cliche as that sounds, it sounds true. But is that the full story? Is the key to my happiness simply a stronger self of worth, a boost to my self-esteem? Let’s explore that together.
Is Porn Rotting Our Brains Like A Drug?
Is pornography harmful or is it just a source of harmless pleasure? That is the question that many media and researchers have been asking in recent years, especially in an age when access to pornography has become easier than ever. It’s so easy that sometimes you stumble upon pornographic material by accident, looking for a download link is like a scavenger hunt among so many ads of singles in my area who want to meet me (or at least that’s what I told my boss).
We Are Basically Plants With Anxiety
Surely you have already read and heard a lot about the importance of sleep (mostly from me I hope) and why it is so important to treat sleep disorders seriously and treat them like actually take steps to fix your sleep, the subject would’ve already made you sleepy if you weren’t an insomniac. And, and, and you must’ve noticed by now, like come on, you love my stuff, you read it religiously, it’d be a little creepy if it wasn’t so flattering (I’m kidding, please don’t stop reading my stuff) anyway, that my last three posts concurrently talk about this one, beautiful, brilliant, blissful experience. Sloth, I mean sleep.
Cloud Technology Is Not The Future Of Companies, It's A Reality
In addition to the well-known benefits of increased cost savings, stability, and predictability, hosting IT services in the cloud also provides enhanced mobility, scalability, and even enterprise-grade security.
How to Meditate Like a Pro
Since I started to give more importance to my mental health and how to take care not only of my body but my mind as well, I noticed that almost everywhere I looked there was talk about meditation. Until a few years ago, I believed that meditation was purely spiritual or religious, and therefore I never really learned about its uses and benefits. I used to think that it was a practice for only a select group of the population, those capable of silencing the voices in their head. Being someone highly anxious, I didn’t think it possible to silence the voices in mine that only seem to scream AAAAHHHHHHHHHH until I go to sleep. So I gave up on meditation before even trying.
Lose Weight After the Holidays
Getting back into good habits after the holidays is not just a matter of losing weight. It is not only necessary to get rid of those kilos gained during Christmas –studies place between 3 and 5 the kilos that we gain after the Christmas celebrations–. It is to return to the healthy pre-holiday life that we so badly need. The good news is that with a little effort it is relatively easy to get back to your old weight and old life. We consume 30% more than the recommended calories on these dates, which translates, for example, into dinners that can triple the number of recommended calories. And simply by recovering good habits, we are on the right track.
