Don’t be like Elon Musk. Habits can kill you

In a recent interview with the New York Times, the head of Tesla Elon Musk said that the last time he worked 120 hours a week and such a schedule could not affect his health. “This is not good. To me, that really worried about my condition,” said Musk. Because of the enormous loads, the owner and Manager of the Tesla this summer even missed your own birthday. Factory he left only a few hours to attend his brother’s wedding.

In an interview, Musk also said that the last time was on vacation from work for more than a week in 2001, and then not by choice – had to treat malaria. If Max really on a permanent basis working for 120 hours a week, it turns out that in the day he works more than 17 hours. “There was a time when I was three or four days did not leave the factory. I’m not even out on the street.” I wonder what about the load on the body thinks the medicine?

If Musk has been working every day for 17 hours a day, free time it is only 7 hours. At the same time, it is likely that Musk spends at least 7 hours sleep every day. According to the findings of American scientists from the Centers for control and prevention of diseases USA, made in the course of numerous studies, healthy sleep of an adult aged 18 to 60 years of age should be a minimum of 7 hours a day. Otherwise, lack of sleep can “lead to the development of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, problems with the cardiovascular system, chronic fatigue, and psychological disease” and death.

By the way, according to the same Centers for control and prevention of diseases of the U.S. Musk is not the only person not following the advice of doctors about healthy sleep: about a third of U.S. adults spend sleeping less than the recommended by doctors time.

What is the danger of lack of sleep

That lack of sleep can do to a human body in conversation with Business Insider said neuroscientist Matthew Walker, Director of the Centre for sleep research at the University of California at Berkeley. Walker often consults people from the NBA, NFL and Pixar on issues of sleep hygiene.

“The less you sleep, the shorter becomes your life” — briefly but succinctly characterizes Walker’s lack of sleep.

And that’s no exaggeration. According to the specialist, as well as many studies before, lack of sleep and its duration is only 6-7 hours in the long run can cause serious consequences for your health, and in some cases cause your death. Walker is convinced that a healthy body condition a person needs to hold the cushion 7 to 8 hours a day. He adheres to this rule very strictly and sleeps for 8 hours. And not taken into account at the time that he was tossing and turning in bed (like any other man) and wakes up at night (to drink water, to go to the toilet, etc.). Strictly 8 hours of sleep and not a minute less. According to him, such strict observance of this rule makes it productive and alert throughout the working day, and also allows you to keep physical and psychological health.

As sleep duration less than 7 hours affects your body and brain

“If little sleep, your quality of life will be significantly worse, and you will die earlier,” says Walker.

Lack of sleep reduces the number of T-killer cells, lymphocytes, types of white blood cells (white blood cells) that are part of your immune system involved in cleaning your body of worn out cells and viruses. According to Walker, only one session is insufficient sleep duration 4 to 5 hours can reduce the natural level of these T-killer cells by up to 70 percent.

Lack of sleep is a direct path to the development of chronic diseases. Scientists are the link between lack of sleep and the development of Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, elevated levels of stroke and diabetes. In addition, lack of sleep alters the processes associated with the production of insulin and absorption rate by the cells of your body sugar. Just one week of insufficient sleep (5-6 hours a day) and your doctor may diagnose you prediabetics state, Walker says. In other words, it increases the risk of developing diabetes. Chronic lack of sleep increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, may lead to kidney problems. This is confirmed by findings of previous studies.

Lack of sleep turns your body into a perfect environment for cancer. Scientists have drawn Parallels between sleep deprivation and development of colon cancer, cancer of the breast and prostate.

Not to sleep the night quite bad too. If you think that the lack of sleep at night can be fully compensated by dream daily, then you are mistaken, says an expert. It is believed that the most beneficial sleep comes at a time of from 23 to 2 am. It was during this period the brain actively produces the hormone melatonin, which not only improves sleep but also combats signs of aging, normalizes blood pressure and strengthens overall health. With the dawn of melatonin produced ceases. To replace him with the first rays of the sun comes vivacity hormone — serotonin. He wakes us up at dawn. According to the who, night work can be classified as “likely carcinogenic factors“.

In Russia statistics of lack of sleep of the population, unfortunately, we do not, however, the night shift we employ millions of people. Many – years. At particular risk of developing diabetes-prone doctors, nurses, medical staff, a duty which often falls at night, and security guards, police officers, communications operators.

According to Walker, not all organisms work the same way. Some “lucky” more. In the world there are lucky people whose bodies are adapted to survive even with minimal amount of sleep. There is such magic gene known as BHLHE41. He is responsible for the regulation of circadian rhythms — our biological clock. Gene mutation can change our need for sleep duration. Some need just 5 hours to fully sleep. However, according to scientific data, its carrier are less than 1 percent of the total population of the planet.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
