Don’t get up too hard
When people sleep, their blood pressure is relatively low. When they wake up, their blood pressure will rise rapidly. Especially in some hypertensive patients with morning peaks, getting up too fast or too violently may cause a sudden increase in blood pressure and cause brain damage. Serious diseases such as blood vessel rupture. There are also some hypertensive patients who have vascular dyskinesia due to arteriosclerosis and other reasons. If the body position changes too fast, it is prone to orthostatic hypotension, insufficient blood supply to the brain, and dizziness or fainting. It is recommended to stick to the “221” principle when waking up, that is, when you just wake up, open your eyes and lie down in bed for 2 minutes, sit for 2 minutes after getting up, and sit by the bed and wait 1 minute before getting up and moving.
Don’t blindly get up early and do morning exercises
The temperature difference between indoor and outdoor is gradually increasing in autumn and winter. Some people go out for morning exercises at four or five o’clock. At this time, people are easily stimulated by the cold, which makes the already high blood pressure rise faster in the morning, thereby increasing the possibility of cerebrovascular accidents. It is recommended that you schedule your exercise time around 4 pm. Aerobics, Tai Chi, and brisk walking are all good exercise methods. Blindly over-exercising may also induce cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events.
Don’t force a bowel movement
Strong defecation will increase intra-abdominal pressure, increase oxygen consumption, increase the heart rate, and increase the burden on the heart. Especially for patients with stroke and heart disease, the sudden onset of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases can be induced by constipation and forced defecation with holding their breath. Therefore, don’t “compete” during defecation, and don’t force it if you can’t get out.
Don’t wash your hair in the winter morning
It is also not advisable to wash your hair before going out in the morning, especially in the cold winter, because the hair is not dried and the pores on the head are open, it is easy to suffer from wind cold, and people who are mild will also suffer from colds and headaches. If this is often the case, it may also cause pain in large and small joints and even muscle paralysis.
If you have the habit of washing your hair at night or in the morning, be sure to wipe it dry before going to bed or dry it before going out. Ladies must pay attention to dry their body and hair after taking a shower, to avoid cold pathogens and moisture from getting in, so as not to suffer from headaches, neck and back pain, and even cause some gynecological diseases.
I want to bake it when I am frozen
The hands and feet are frozen, and it seems like it should be heated, but it is not advisable. Long-term exposure of hands and feet in winter will cause vasoconstriction and reduced blood flow. At this time, if you immediately use fire to bake it, it will paralyze the blood vessels and lose contractility, resulting in arterial congestion, telangiectasia, enhanced permeability, and local congestion. The mild form of frostbite, the severe form of tissue necrosis. Therefore, the frozen hands and feet can only be gently rubbed to make them slowly return to normal temperature.
I want to lick dry lips, I can’t lick it
My lips are dry, so I can’t lick it with my tongue to increase moisture. Because saliva is secreted by the salivary glands to moisturize the mouth and digest food, it contains substances such as amylase, which is relatively viscous. Licking on the lips is like putting on a layer of paste. After the wind blows, the water evaporates and the amylase sticks to the lips, which makes it dry even more, and even causes the lips to rupture and bleed, causing suppurative infection. Therefore, when your lips are chapped, you can wash them off with hot water, apply a layer of balsam or glycerin, drink more boiled water, and eat more vegetables and fruits.
Eat less ginger
As the saying goes, “Eat radish in winter and ginger in summer, without a doctor’s prescription.” In winter, due to the dry climate, the air lacks moisture and humidity, and people change with the natural environment, so the human body also lacks moisture. And ginger is hot, and it loses a lot of water during cooking, which speeds up blood circulation. After eating, it is easy to get angry and increase dryness, which will cause harm to our human body. When choosing radish when eating, it can eliminate grains, eliminate phlegm addiction, relieve cough, relieve thirst, and promote the vitality of the viscera. Because radish belongs to soil, it is in the middle according to the five elements of Chinese medicine, which benefits the spleen and stomach, and benefits the qi. Therefore, in winter, you need to eat less ginger instead of radish, which can prevent diseases and benefit your health.
