Longevity system reserve training (p2)
Exercise 4 – Information Starvation
With regard to information, nature provided for natural periodic informational starvation in the form of n and a. During sleep, the flow of information from the outside is maximally limited: we do not see, do not hear, do not smell or touch the skin, taste buds relax. This is not about superficial, but about deep, full sleep. Conditions for him are a darkened room with good ventilation and sound insulation, a comfortable temperature and humidity, a comfortable bed. A sign of normal sleep is well-being and mood after waking up.
You may ask, what are the reserves here? The fact is that during sleep, the brain does not idle at all. There are two phases of sleep – slow and fast. It was found that in the REM phase, the activity of nerve cells in most parts of the brain increases, reaching the level of wakefulness. The brain function is the processing, storage and transmission of information, therefore, its active work, while limiting external information, indicates that the processing of backup information stored in memory is in progress. You sleep, and the brain continues to solve your problems, drawing on all the previously accumulated experience. No wonder they say – “morning is wiser than the evening.” Many great discoveries were made in a dream.
A person has another need related to the limitation of external information – the need to periodically be alone. Catering is also a type of information starvation.
Man for man is a powerful irritant, requiring constant attention and tension. The inability to be alone can lead to mental disorders.
If you combine all four exercises, it turns out that the ideal means of rejuvenation is a long sleep high in the mountains, because during sleep we do not eat or drink. But do you know how the “Japanese ninja”, the medieval Japanese “special forces”, developed their phenomenal abilities. They studied the methods of self-improvement and longevity with the hermits of the Yamabushi hermits. This is the most mysterious sect ever existed in Japan. They passed on their secrets by word of mouth, it was forbidden to write them down. And what would you think the word Yamabushi means? Nothing but “sleeping in the mountains.” Here is one of the carefully kept secrets – it’s in their name. Most of the high-altitude resorts in the CIS are not particularly popular right now and are completely in vain – their rejuvenation effect cannot be replaced by anything.
All the methods that we examined are based on the fact that the body is missing something from the outside, but after all, money in our wallet becomes less not only when we get it, but when we spend it intensively. Thus, we can force the body to use its reserves with the help of periodic intensified work of individual organs and systems. The following reserve training exercises are based on artificial hyperfunction. They are allocated quite arbitrarily, because the body is a single whole and the training of one system invariably activates all the others to one degree or another.
Exercise 5 – Muscle Training
Muscle cell function is contraction. In its absence, muscle fiber weakens and decreases in volume – there is a process of atrophy. Muscles make up the bulk of our body mass, and if you want to preserve them, be so kind as to regularly strain each. Walk, run, swim, dance, exercise on simulators – in general, anything, just move. You can move more or less, but a certain small and small range of movements at which every muscle will be tense should be performed regularly. This is the basis of stability not only of the musculoskeletal system, but also of all systems associated with it, i.e. almost the entire body. With the help of an experienced trainer, develop an individual complex that matches your physical capabilities and do not deviate from it all your life.
Exercise 6 – Thermoregulation Training
A constant body temperature is ensured by two simultaneously running processes: heat production and heat transfer. You can train the mechanisms of thermoregulation by artificially changing the ambient temperature. With a decrease in temperature (cold stimulation), heat production increases and heat transfer decreases. With increasing temperature (thermal stimulation) – vice versa. Methods of cold stimulation: wearing light clothes, air baths, washing your face and washing your feet with cold water, dousing with cold water, a cold shower, cold baths, barefoot walking, winter swimming, cryotherapy, etc. Methods The area of stimulation: bath (Russian, Turkish, Finnish), hot shower, hot bath, sunbathing, hot wraps, burying in hot sand, bathing in thermal springs, etc. More stringent methods are based on temperature changes: a contrast shower, a cold pool after a bath, etc.
