(ORDO NEWS) — In The Conversation, four researchers share their personal experiences. They note what good habits they have acquired since the start of the pandemic.
The Conversation asked four scientists to talk about how their lives have changed during the pandemic. Including about one of the good habits that they got because of the changed living conditions.
1- Walks. For Libby Richards, an associate professor of nursing at Purdue University, they have become a way to relieve stress, improve emotional state. Thanks to this, it was possible to improve sleep, get rid of headaches, and increase concentration.
2- Lifting weights as a habit. Alison Phillips, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Iowa, has come into this habit. Initially, the goal of this exercise was to reduce stress and increase strength. As a result, the scientist managed to become more fit.
3- Give yourself a little indulgence, but in moderation. After Katherine Busbaum, a clinical nutritionist at the University of Virginia, began working from home, she found it hard to manage her daily chocolate intake.
Instead of one serving once a day, she began to eat chocolate two or three times a day. As a result, the scientist was able to reduce the use of this product to one serving once a week.
4- Clearing the Mind Through Meditation. This habit was addressed by Jessica Bain Robert, an instructor at Clark University. As a result, her pressure decreased, in general she also became calmer, her ability to concentrate and memory improved.
At the same time, scientific works suggest that even 10 minutes of meditation a day can be beneficial for the body.
