Mechanism of panic attack

How we lose control by the fear stimulants? How to be strong mentally?

My message:

I studied about the fear and panic response. These days, panic responses are happening everywhere in the world. Stock markets chaos panic sell off, supermarkets panic buying, and many unusual panic actions are observed. Why do humans panic and act in the uncontrollable ways? This is because of our natural self-protection system of our bodies. If we understand more about how panic works, we could act more stable than usual? Meditation in mindfulness could give us stability and act calmly? Strong mentality could help us be wiser. NEVER PANIC. CONSCIOUSNESS. POSITIVE MIND-SET.

Memory of Shamrock Emerald Green

I studied about the holy St. Patrick’s Day today to make a blog update. Please enjoy it.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!

St. Patrick’s Day
It is a global celebration of Irish culture on or around March 17. It particularly remembers St. Patrick, one of Ireland’s patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. So many legends surround his life that the truth is not easily found. His real name is believed to be Maewyn Succat and he took on the name Patrick upon becoming a priest.

Why do we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Please click here for the video.

Why is St. Patrick’s day green?
Green is the color of a shamrock, a symbol of Ireland known as the Emerald Isle because of its lush vegetation. And traditional Irish legend held that wearing green made you invisible to leprechauns. Regardless of the reason, the world unites around the color green on St. Patrick’s Day.

How to cope with the Corona crisis

Why the corona virus is dangerous?

The virus is a protein which has many spikes (ref. spike protein) on its structure. These spikes can hook on the receptors of the human’s body cells i.e. lung’s cells. Once they bind cellular receptors, the virus fuse with the human’s cell membrane. Once infected, the lung will be highly mucus that it causes difficulty in breathing, headache, high fever, dull, coughing, pneumonia, severe respiratory distress syndrome and multiple organ failures. It is a deadly virus.

Why humans fear the coronavirus infections?

As mentioned above, once the virus gets into our respiratory system, it will harm the body within a short period. How do they get into our body? From the nose, mouth and the openings which lead to the respiratory organs. If they attached to the clothes or body parts, they should be killed by the disinfectants before it’s too late. The link below is result from google surfing. (Ref. What kill corona virus and the right disinfectants)

We don’t know if we contact to the virus in our daily activities. So disinfection is the only one thing we can do. It stays in the body for 2 weeks, showing no symptoms. Therefore, the infections are spread widely by the humans who don’t know they are infected by the virus. They even spread around the world by the infected travelers. The infection rate is fast since the transportation systems are so speedy. Besides, humans population density is higher compared to the ancient time. The best thing to do is to stay at home. Schools are closed and public gathering are prohibited in some countries. Pray for the world and save people from this unseen fear of virus.

Symptoms check app is here. Please check and make sure of you have no symptoms.

Room air conditioning setting references

COVID19 is alive for 24~72 hours on the surfaces of cardboard, plastics and steel. It drops to the lower atmosphere after coughing by the infected person. From the mouth to the lower atmosphere or ground, it takes about 34 minutes. This means, they are in the air, they are on surfaces everywhere. They are on the ground.

Room temperature >/=25 degree C

Room moisture >/= 65%

Reviews

Early tests of the virus infection or early treatment could win the virus? But the tests equipments are limited. Therefore, people should make less gathering not to spread more. Economically damage is inevitable. I too have to stay at home to look after my child because the school was closed for a month. Since I have time, I decided to share what I learned from the internet about this corona virus via my blog. I suggest to live healthy and eat healthy to boost the metabolism and resistance of our bodies. Not all the infectious people die of the virus, some even getting better after treatment. It is improtant not to distribute the virus by ourselves.

What I do to protect my family from the infection

  1. Cook well done meat (no raw)
  2. Vegetables are boiled (no raw)
  3. Drink lemon juice
  4. Sleep at least 6 hours per day
  5. Jumping for exercise
  6. Drink enough water (1L/d for adult)
  7. Mask, hat, glass protection when going outside
  8. Avoid contact with things as much as possible
  9. Spray the disinfectants to mat, clothes, blankets, etc.
  10. Wash the clothes with disinfectant detergents
  11. Wash hands or spray disinfectants or dispose glove after touching the public place’s door nobs or buttons etc.
  12. Change the bedsheet more than regular frequency
  13. Keep or stay in the good ventilation surrounding
  14. Work from home
  15. Use wet disinfectant tissues to wipe out the spit after someone’s coughing near
  16. Stay away from other people for at least 3m further away etc.

One day humans will overcome this virus crisis. We are in the mid of the accelerating rate of infections now. Calm and wise actions will help reduce the problems. Pray for the quick recovery from this virus crisis.

How to be in mindfulness?

Illusions, nervous, anxieties, worries, irritations, stress ….

Many the people are suffering…

Here is the secret to overcome from them…

The straightway to talk to all the Gods!

I suggest to “MEDITATE”

Please do meditation.

  1. Sit down straight in the silent place.

2. Close the eyes.

3. Inhale (Say inhale in your mind during drawing in the air fully into your lung.)

4. Exhale (Say exhale in your mind during breathing the air out.)

5. Keep on repeating steps 3 and 4.

6. If thoughts start to appear in your mind, focus more on steps 3 and 4 until getting the stable rhythm of 3 and 4.

7. Repeat 3 and 4 as long as you can.

8. The more you can control the rhythm 3 and 4, the more clear mindfulness you will experience.

Wishing you all good respiration process and better health by meditation everyday.

Spending more time in meditation can change your life into a happy and successful one.

May god bless you….
