Explained benefits of Sleep
If no one explained this to you before, you should know that sleep is extremely important. How important? Just remember that sleep takes 1/3 of your lifetime on Earth, so it’s about 30 years or life important.
The truth is even science didn’t know so much about sleep 50 years ago, but now they do.
It’s a fact now that sleep played a major role in human evolution, and it’s time for you to understand why is as important as ever.
I will talk about:
Pitesti Prison. Squeezing information out of people. Inspired by the URSS model
It’s not a secret that in most of the communist prison torture was applied, but varied from country to country. Romania, unfortunately, applied one of the worst treatments.
In 1948 the Communism Regin rose to power in Romania, supported by the Russian army. The Communist Party was still small, so it had to eliminate the opponent's political party.
The historical parties got disbanded and most of the leaders were expelled from the country. …
Something called Mirror Neurons
Sounds and music can be transcripted into musical notes on a paper. Everyone who knows how to read the paper can play that song exactly how the composer wants them to, regardless of their homeland.
When learning a new action, we first need to watch someone doing it. But why we need this visual approach this much?
Why no one can write down, for example, a dance move in a way that all the readers can understand and perform the exact…
Your own personality should matter
Habit refers to consistency. When talking about success, every media channel refers to success as an outcome of a certain habit.
These media channels are useful because they are a constant reminder of our potential. The bad thing is, if you are already feeling it, they make us put enormous pressure upon ourselves.
We can’t and should not cope with it all the time, but because we try and fail we end up blaming ourselves. …
A place where Hercules took a bath to recover his strength
Somewhere in the Romanian Carpathian Mountains, there is this place of legend that goes back to the heroic adventures of Hercules, and that carries his name up until this day. And the Romanians never believed in Greek gods.
Long ago, while he was in search of the Golden Wool, Hercules was sailing up the Danube river. He stopped for a while in the place that today is called Danube Boilers, for supplies.
One of the locals heard about Hercule's arrival and went to find him, and soon he did…
And I’m not talking about the Vatican
Not to start on the wrong foot, I have nothing against God, whatever you choose to call Him. Yet, we live in the 21 century, our planet population riched 7.8 billion people and right now faces a pandemic at a scale that never happened before.
How do you convince people to wear a mask because that’s one of the most important safety measures? You educate them so they can understand why.
How do you heal those you got infected? Send them to the hospital.
How do we put an end to the pandemic…
No time to rest. No fear to go back.
People with great stories and astonishing ways of life are quite rare to be encountered these days, especially if you isolated yourself in this civilized bubble.
Let’s face it. The more technology evolves, somehow we hide from trouble, danger, pain. Life was not built this way.
The more uncommon that life is, the lesser the chances you’ll ever encounter it. We have created a common-sense against everything that we find unnatural, against the so-called laws of God and society.
But still, not so many years ago we believed that the atom…
My answer to plants vs meat debate
There are 3 general rules for healthy nutrition:
I also have a sort of genetically inherited stomach disease and my doctor added a few more conditions:
No one answered.
I have friends that are vegetarians, vegans, and strong meat consumers. …
Scientific discoveries and an old school grandma.
Just like most smartphones, our battery gets drained after a long exhausting day. The thing is that these phones now have a fast charger while we don’t.
Science can’t say for sure how sleep works, why do we need it, and how to solve most of its problems.
I will try to make a summary of everything that I've learned about sleep, how to achieve it faster, how to improve its quality, how to maintain the habit, and most importantly, not to get mad when sleep just won’t show up.
Hours/ night you…
Might as well be The Change
At least once in a lifetime, we heard somebody saying that books make us smarter. Did anyone explain that more specifically? Probably not.
I grow up in a house with a big library filled with old books and my parents would tell me an infinite amount of time that I should read. They just said that’s how I will become smarter, but I never understood how stories about an old princess are going to accomplish that.
Growing into highschool I kept hearing the same advice everywhere and I gave up. I got curious. I…
