Winter Is A Difficult Time

Winter is a difficult time. The sunshine hours are few. The cold gets in the cracks. Our mood and productivity during these days significantly decreases. One of the reasons for this is the shorter periods of sunshine per day as well as the weaker sunshine. Naturally this impacts our physical state, our health and our mood. Exposure to sunlight increases our dopamine levels. This very active neurotransmitter is associated with motivation. Deficiency in this neurotransmitter can have a serious impact on well-being. So, how to handle the low availability of sunlight? Well, first of all, get as much of the sunshine that is available as possible. Next, embrace the cold. It turns out that exposure to the cold is a strong stimulator for dopamine production. Practically this means that you should wear as little clothes as possible. This not only increases exposure to the cold but also to the vital sunshine. Many have embraced cold showers and/or dunk themselves is tubs with cold water. A mere 20 seconds exposure to very cold water could be all that you need to increase epinephrine significantly.

冬は大変な時期です。日照時間が少ない。寒さが隙間に入ってくる。この頃の私たちの気分や生産性は著しく低下します。その理由のひとつは、1日の日照時間が短くなることと、日差しが弱くなることです。当然、体調や健康、気分にも影響します。日光を浴びると、私たちのドーパミンレベルが上昇します。この非常に活発な神経伝達物質は、やる気と関連しています。この神経伝達物質が欠乏すると、幸福感に深刻な影響を及ぼします。では、日照時間が短い場合、どのように対処すればよいのでしょうか。まず、太陽の光をできるだけたくさん浴びることです。次に、寒さを受け入れることです。寒さにさらされると、ドーパミンの産生を強く刺激することが分かっています。現実的には、できるだけ服を着ない方がいいということになります。寒さだけでなく、太陽の光も浴びることができます。多くの人が冷たいシャワーを浴びたり、浴槽に水を張ったりしています。たった20秒、冷たい水を浴びるだけで、エピネフリンを大量に分泌することができるのです。寒冷適応プロトコルにアクセスし、寒さとその効果を楽しむために、会員になりましょう。https://www.modernsamurai.info/shop/membery/
