    My mom's ankles swell up pretty badly. She works somewhere where she stands for almost 10 hours.
    When she pushes onto her swollen ankles it leaves dents.
    My mom and me never knew what was wrong.
    Thank god I found this..
    Questions answered..
    This was a great help.
    Thank you!

    Sitting too much has practically crippled me, I have constant pain in my hips from so much driving and sitting at a desk. Standing hurts my back. So, I try to walk as much as I can. I’m a property manager so I do get to go out and walk. However, due to climate change, Florida is more hot then it has ever been in my life. So being outside it hot. Now that Adam ruined sunscreen, that a whole new topic lol.

    In Florida the three school types all share buses so have different times. High school starts earliest supposedly so the can work after school. In addition to the tons of homework they get. My daughter never got enough sleep and I always worried.

    If I sleep at 12:00 and wake up at 8:00am or 10:00am
    Meaning 8 hours or 10 hours of sleep
    Is it still considered quality sleep? Even though I have the needed sleep but I slept at midnight

    We need a petition for making school later. I believe the WHOLE family would benefit from later starting times! Many homeschoolers know this and it's one reason we prefer alternative schooling options. It's beyond time we put physical/biological and psychological health first. I would put money on this reducing pathology!

    Just FYI and tangentially, young children cry on planes because they're in pain. The pressure change can induce inner ear/cranial pressure. Not fun! To relieve the pressure caregivers, inducing their swallowing reflex by nursing, drinking, chewing, sucking during elevation transitions can neutralize the pain. ;) So to others feeling annoyed please please reconsider. Share this tip and give love to those poor kiddos as they're likely in pain. 💓

    On my previous semester, I was given a schedule of a PM class. First period starts at 10:30 AM and ends at 7:30 PM. I never felt tired at school during those times. Now, my classes start at 7:00 AM and ends at 1:30 PM yet I am tired after 1 hour of lecture. Either what Adam says are right ... or my subjects have become boring

    School isn’t to educate people, it’s to create a standardized citizenry with a safe degree of knowledge about the power sources under which they will live their lives that will assure compliance to them, while assuring that the citizens will not have the necessary critical thinking skills to figure out that they live in a new form of feudalism and that they will spend their relatively meaningless lives serving lords, princes and kings (albeit by different names).
    In other words you were inculcated in the compulsory education system so that you will be a good worker, and that boss wants you showing up on time for your shift no matter what time it starts so get used to it early (the biology of puberty and circadian rhythms notwithstanding).

  • Riti Aggarwal

    I feel more sleepy when I sleep more. My mom keeps trying to force me to sleep early. The thing is, she genuinely doesn’t get the fact that I feel more sick and tired after sleeping more. I also take a long time to sleep when forced, so it’s easier for me to just sleep when it comes naturally to me. Even if I do go to bed at my mom’s ideal time, I probably end up getting the same sleep since I’m so stressed about not being able to sleep. Which is why I prefer 5-6 hours a night way more. Maybe it’s a gene thing? I read a few studies about people who need to sleep less. I really can’t confirm, but this is how I feel. MOM PLEASE UNDERSTAND. She thinks I’m being a brat who just wants to talk to her boyfriend longer ugh, but he falls asleep early, haha.

    I don't get why people can't just shift their circadian rythm. People can shift their rythms just fine when moving to a different time zone- and you can do that without moving to a different time zone.
    I don't buy that anyone without a sleep disorder can't just switch to an earlier bedtime. If you need darkness, use a mask. If you need light, use goddamn blue light at full blast. The whole "teenagers need to sleep in" is basically a lack of discipline.
    In my house, everyone goes to bed at 10. There's no issue with being up at 6.
