The magical “3 minutes” to help you live longer and healthier
Don’t underestimate the short 3 minutes, it may have a lasting impact on your health.
Below, we introduce you to 10 minutes in life that can play a miraculous health care role.
銆€銆€1. Brush your teeth for 3 minutes.
銆€銆€The Korean dental profession has been advocating the 鈥?-3-3 brushing method鈥? which means brushing teeth more than 3 times a day, brushing teeth within 3 minutes after a meal, and brushing teeth for more than 3 minutes each time.
The basic principle of brushing teeth is “all-in-one”, that is, the angles of the outside, inside, and occlusal surfaces of the teeth should be considered.
Calculated, about 80 tooth surfaces need to be cleaned, this workload is not small.
A toothbrush can only brush 2-3 teeth at the same time, so every tooth brushing for 3 minutes will ensure that all teeth are cleaned.
If you feel that the 3-minute process of brushing your teeth is too boring, listen to the news in the morning, listen to music at night, and enjoy while brushing.
In addition, brushing is best done within 3 minutes after meals to prevent bacteria from depositing on the surface of the teeth and preventing dental caries.
At other times, use water, salt water or mouthwash.
銆€銆€2. Boil for 3 minutes after boiling.
銆€銆€Chlorinated tap water, in which chlorine is combined with residual organic matter in water, produces various carcinogenic compounds such as halogenated hydrocarbons and chloroform.
Experiments have shown that the content of this substance is closely related to the change of water temperature and the length of boiling time. When the water is boiled and then burned for 3 minutes, the content can be reduced to the safest drinking standard, which is the real “boiling water”.
When boiling water, take three steps: first, take the tap water and put it for a while and then burn it; then, when the water is open, open the lid; finally, after the water is turned on, wait for 3 minutes and then turn off the flame, then you can let the waterHazardous substances are effectively volatilized.
銆€銆€3. Eat hot and cold for 3 minutes.
銆€銆€In the cold winter, it is undoubtedly a great thing for relatives and friends to sit together and eat hot pots. It is even more energetic to drink iced drinks.
However, this may cause a “strong protest” of the stomach and blood pressure.
After eating hot dishes, the blood vessels will expand. If you drink a lot of ice water, the blood vessels will shrink sharply, blood pressure will increase, and dizziness, nausea, stomach pain, abdominal distension and other symptoms will appear.
This practice is especially dangerous for people with a slightly higher blood pressure.
Therefore, it is best not to eat foods with strong temperature contrast in a short time.
Even if you want to drink cold drinks to quench your thirst after eating hot, it should be more than 3 minutes, which can reduce the stimulation of the stomach.
銆€銆€4, boiling water for 3 minutes.
銆€銆€Everyone will drink tea, but brewing may not be possible.
It is best to soak the tea for 3 minutes, pour off the water and then brew for 3 minutes. The optimum water temperature is 70 掳C – 80 掳C, so that the tea is delicious.
This is because tea leaves are soaked in high-temperature water for a long time, just like boiling on a hot fire. Tea polyphenols, tannins and other substances will be leached in a large amount, making the tea color thick and bitter.
At the same time, due to the high water temperature, the aromatic oil in the tea will quickly evaporate a lot, and the tannic acid and theophylline will ooze a lot, which not only reduces the nutritional value of the tea, reduces the tea fragrance, but also increases the harmful substances.
After making tea for 3 minutes, the caffeine in the tea basically oozes out. At this time, the tea is the most refreshing.
銆€銆€5. After the eye drops, press the inner corner of the eye for 3 minutes.
銆€銆€Many people have the same confusion: after dropping the eye drops, the mouth often suffers like taking medicine.
This is because the five senses of the person are the same. There is a nasolacrimal tube between the human eye and the nasal cavity. The eye drops will flow from the nose to the mouth, so that the tongue root located in the pharynx tastes the bitter taste of the eye drops.
The correct eye drop posture is: take the sitting position or supine position, the head is slightly tilted back, the eyes are looking upwards; use the index finger and middle finger of the left hand to gently pry open the lower eyelid, hold the medicine bottle right, and drop the medicine into the eyelid 1- 2 drops, then gently lift the lower eyelid up, so that the drug solution is fully distributed in the conjunctival sac; gently close the eye after dropping the syrup, and press the inner corner of the eye with the index finger for 3 minutes.
In this way, not only can the drug liquid be absorbed into the blood by the nasal mucosa after entering the nasolacrimal duct, but also the time for the liquid to stay on the surface of the eyeball can be prolonged, so that the drug effect is more sufficient.
銆€銆€6, after waking up, stay in bed for 3 minutes.
銆€銆€Statistics show that in the case of stroke and sudden death, nearly 25% of people get up in the morning, this period is called the “devil time” of the day.
Sun Ningling recommends that middle-aged and elderly people with high blood pressure and heart disease should not rush to get up after waking up. They should first close their eyes and raise their eyes for 3 minutes before getting up.
The body can maintain its original posture and properly move the limbs and head and neck so that blood pressure does not fluctuate too much.
銆€銆€7. Get angry for no more than 3 minutes.
銆€銆€The American physiologist Elma research found that people who are angry for 10 minutes consume as much energy as a 3,000-meter race.What is more serious is that the physiological reaction during anger is very serious, the secretion is more complicated than any other emotions, and it is toxic, so it is difficult for people who are angry to live longer.
When people get angry, their blood pressure rises instantly. People with bad health, especially the elderly, are prone to cerebral hemorrhage, heart disease and myocardial infarction.
Therefore, anger should not exceed 3 minutes, even if you have gas, you have to go quickly, vent your vent as soon as possible, and try to keep your mood stable.
銆€銆€8, the toilet does not exceed 3 minutes.
銆€銆€Many people like to read books while going to the toilet. Some people even set up bookshelves and newspaper racks in the bathroom when they are decorating the house.
銆€銆€At the time of defecation, the initial pressure per square centimeter is several to several tens of kilograms.
Reading or smoking while defecation often leads to excessive defecation time. If this is the case, it will cause the intestinal mucosa to sag, leading to habitual constipation, hemorrhoids and other diseases.
Therefore, the toilet time is best controlled within 3 minutes.
銆€銆€9, abdominal breathing for 3 minutes a day.
銆€銆€People’s lung capacity is as large as two footballs, but many people are too short to breathe, so that the air can not penetrate to the lower end of the lungs, resulting in less ventilation, so most people only use the extra lungs in their lifetime.
銆€銆€In the fresh air outdoors, do abdominal breathing for 3 minutes every day.
The specific method is: first slowly inhale from the nostrils, during the inhalation process, the chest is lifted up, the abdomen will slowly swell, and then continue to inhale, so that the whole lung is filled with air, then the ribs will be lifted up, the chest willexpand.
This process usually takes 5-10 seconds, then hold your breath for 5-10 seconds, pause for 2-3 seconds, exhale, and then start a new breath.
銆€銆€10, exercise gap for 3 minutes.
銆€銆€Many people have the experience of being out of breath during exercise. At this time, they should take a break. In fact, for only a short period of 3 minutes, the muscles of the person can complete enough energy supplements for the next exercise.
Scientists at the University of Kansas in the United States have found that even for a twisting movement like basketball and badminton, a short three-minute break is enough.
In this way, it will not let the body cool down quickly, prevent cramps, muscle strains and other sports injuries during re-exercise, and avoid using this time to replenish water and energy, so that the muscles get proper rest and exercise can be shortened as much as possible.
