Transport fatigue - not a myth. His malaise and fatigue, we are often blamed on the weather, always busy, or depression - to whatever you want, but not at such a convenient and familiar form of transport, like the subway. But it has its own nuances.
After several months of daily, at least two hours a day, stay underground in humans, especially in women with chronic fatigue transport. This is a vague feeling of discomfort, bad mood, apathy, and various pains in the body.
And if you exit the subway has only one desire - to be quickly dragged to the house, it is possible that the reason for fatigue - the subway. Moreover, it often occurs in the morning at the thought of what we need to go down to the ground. Or during the trip, despite the fact that you slept well and cheerfully felt an hour ago.
Transport fatigue can trigger the development of hypertension, heart diseases, neuroses, depression and panic attacks.
Who's to blame? First, the unhealthy closeness, dust and dirt in our "palaces of the proletariat." After all, the so-called before the subway.
Unfortunately, information about the content of the air station of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the degree of secrecy is approaching a state secret. But we can assume that the almost complete absence of ventilation in the cars, we know what we breathe.
Second, the total electrification of the subway. It is believed, but these data are also closed, and the level of electromagnetic fields is unacceptably high. Especially in long and deep tunnels. They create electromagnetic installation, powerful high-voltage cables, and an abundance of electrical equipment on the train.
Weakens our nervous system, and noise. In the subway he reaches 70 or more decibels. And few people know about the effects of infrasound. This low-frequency acoustic vibrations below 20 Hz, which arise from the interaction of air flow with a moving train.
The vibration in cars is relatively small, but long trips it works negatively. A sudden braking, acceleration and rocking motion of give additional pressure on the vestibular apparatus. Unprofitable for the eyes and artificial lighting.
Do not add to the health and psychological stress. Overcrowding and crowding, close views at close range, not too high culture of the behavior of individuals are not conducive to optimism.
What should I do? First of all, as far as possible to avoid long journeys. Find a job closer to home, not more than 6.5 stops with a minimum of transplants. If your line is open sites, where the train goes on top, then consider - you're in luck. On such metro line is much less harmful factors.
The rest of the way it is better to pass a less harmful ground transportation or walk.
If you cross the city every day from one end under, then at least refrain from traveling on weekends. Hold them in nature, preferably without alcoholic libations and chaotic, not very healthy meal.
Of all the types of recreation choose active. But not a home exercise bike, a bike, volleyball, skiing. The more time you spend on the subway, the regular and long to be your outdoor activities.
Try to sit in the middle of the composition. There is less vibration and swaying. It is useful during the movement to perform simple breathing exercises, or a simple set of autogenic training.
If the descent into the subway there is excitement, anxiety, you can take valerian, motherwort, passionflower. You can support the body and the intake of vitamins and adaptogens. But remember the main thing - the better you will be hardened and trained, the higher your resistance to any risk factors, including transport.
But the use of the subway as a means of stress management is absolutely unjustified. While some women like to treat their travel miserable and depressed mood. Under the earth there is nothing to admire. In terms of antidepressant activity confined space unprofitable.
Runny nose out of the subway. Transport - it is not the place for snacks. Too great a risk of catching an intestinal infection - dysentery, typhoid fever, and foodborne hepatitis A.
On the railings of escalators and cars accumulate millions of kinds of microbes, bacteria, and sticks. And all of this together with another biscuit or roll easily gets into your body.
Resist the temptation of snacks on the go, whatever you were hungry, and do not feed the children in the metro. Or at least, carry anti-bacterial wet wipes.
Do not sit next to the homeless. And not in a hurry to occupy the vacant seat after it. Metro - a favorite vacation spot homeless people whose health is, to put it mildly, leaves much to be desired.
They are easy to get head lice. Lice are moving rapidly to the person sitting next to. In addition, cootie, who lives in the garment, and can carry typhus. Enough even brief contact with a patient. It is therefore absolutely correctly received by those who can be both further away from a sleeping homeless man on the bench.
Breathe deeply. Stuffy and warm moist air in unventilated cars - an ideal habitat for a variety of viruses. In order to get the flu, it is enough to stand up to a radius of 6 meters from the patient sneezes or coughs.
Now, remember our metropolitenovskuyu overcrowding. Yes, here you can catch anything. From acute respiratory infections and flu to severe meningococcal disease.
This group of diseases are also adenovirus infection, parainfluenza, rhinovirus infection or acute infectious rhinitis. The intestinal form of influenza is also transmitted by airborne droplets.
Not to mention tuberculosis, which is easy to get and from which it is very difficult to recover. Indeed, to many antibiotics tubercle bacillus has managed to adapt.
How to protect yourself from infection? Here, no one has yet come up with nothing new - vaccinations, tempering, prophylactic administration of drugs that enhance the immune system. After all, everyone knows that the disease develops where disturbed natural protective barrier.
In order to be sure that made a child vaccinated protects you, you can check the level of antibodies to the infection you are interested in the blood. Such verification can be before and after vaccination against diphtheria, pertussis, rubella, hepatitis, tuberculosis and other diseases.
But the flu shot does not always guarantee protection. First, it does not act immediately, but after about a month and only for a year. In addition, the virus every year, changing its properties and to predict exactly what will be a walk in the flu this season, it is extremely difficult. But still people vaccinated, even if it gets sick, the flu is much easier to transfer.
Alternatively, you can advise taking drugs that stimulate the immune system. For example, a course of injections immunofana. You can prophylactically poprinimat dibazol, given only that it can reduce blood pressure.
There are good homeopathic remedies, dietary food supplements, multivitamins. And that's popular with many rimantadine is only good if you have been in contact with influenza patients.
From home remedies may be advisable to prevent the garlic - 2 cloves a day, or a mixture of honey and lemon. But this is only for people who do not have allergies and stomach problems.
