With the improvement of people's living standard, people pay more and more attention to the quality of life. How to live a healthier life and how to get health by the simplest way are what people pay more attention to and pursue. In addition to scientific balance of diet and positive adjustment of mentality, reasonable fitness methods and lifestyle are the most important. 'life lies in movement' and 'no sense, no pain' are eternal principles. Bathing is used to clean the dirty things and fatigue of the body, but bathing can also be very healthy, especially for white-collar workers. What are the health benefits of bathing? You should pay attention to the following practices and common sense.
Daily regular shower is good for health
According to western medicine, the heat energy system of human body is regular. From morning to night is the time of heat storage, but in the period from afternoon to night, the heat is constantly lost. Therefore, daily shower in a fixed period of time is in line with the physiological cycle.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that different 'Qi' in the human body maintains the operation of organs and regulates their functions. If the 'Qi' circulation is not smooth, it will affect human function. External factors such as exercise, pressure and light can bring positive stimulation to the body, make the whole body 'Qi' unobstructed, and achieve the effect of health preservation.
To ventilate the air, we must have a high-quality hand-held shower with adjustable water outlet mode, which is the key to shower regimen. In the process of shower every day, use 5 minutes to adjust different water flow to stimulate the acupoints and internal organs of the body, which can dredge the pulse gas and relieve the pain. This method is simple and easy in people's life.
Heat first, then cold to promote blood circulation
Experts believe that hot and cold alternate shower massage can help promote blood circulation, but must be hot before cold. Hot water can relax the blood vessels on the skin surface, relax the muscles and help yourself relax. When the body is warm enough, take a cold bath. This constricts the blood vessels and promotes blood circulation, which excites the mind and body.
Shower massage must be carried out after the body has been cleaned. Firstly, the water temperature should be adjusted a little higher, and the water flow intensity should be strengthened at the same time. Use the massage water flow to do a whole body massage, relax the muscles and ligaments, and focus on the areas where the muscles are tense or where the ligaments are sore. When the whole body has been warmed up with hot water massage, you can try cold water massage. Cold water massage should be done step by step. Do not put the whole body under the cold water immediately. Start from the face, feet or hands, and then slowly lead to the chest. If it's hard to accept cold water, just shower from feet to knees and from hands to elbows. Move up a little every day and you'll get used to it.
Tips for shower regimen:
No shower massage can be used to treat hunger or just after eating. Those with heart disease or circulatory problems must consult a doctor or relevant experts first.
Take a shower or bath to warm your body before you shower and massage.
When the skin is dry, you should use some gentle shower gel or baby shower gel. After bathing, rub some lotion or nutrition cream on those uncomfortable positions.
