Most of these instinct relate to survival, either that of the individual or that of the species. According to the study performed by the Norwegian team, people who read from their tablets for half an hour before going to sleep felt less sleepy as they did so and had a different electrical activity in the brain, indicative of little restfulness, as opposed to those reading from a book. Still, it took similar times to fall asleep and the participants were awake for similar amounts of time. The reason behind this is that our ancestors evolved to know that light meant they had to get things done.
Led by Janne Gronli from the University of Bergen in Norway, the study had quite a small sample – sixteen non-smokers aged 22 to 33, with no history of psychiatric, medical or sleep disorders. The study lasted for three nights, and polysomnographic recordings were taken of the participants in each of the three. A light meter measured the light at eye level during each night and revealed the tablet producing twice the amounts of light as the book, along with a high level of blue light.

Cold weather camping is a very popular kind of camping and is done by people all over the world.
The views of snow capped mountain peaks and snow tipped leaves of trees can totally make it worth it.
A lot of people do not feel thirsty during cold weather conditions but staying hydrated is just as important in winters as it is in summers. Setting up a tent can be difficult in snow and hence it is very important to choose the camping point carefully. You may like to strip down to minimal clothing when you go to bed but avoid doing so when camping in cold weather conditions. And, oh, we were thankful Dodge had sponsored this camp and provided five new trucks to test. Lightning storms are very dangerous and you should always seek to find the safest place possible. Mother Nature—during a mood swing—is certainly cool to watch—until she turns into a raging fire-breathing dragon spewing lightning strikes all around you. Crouch down in the center of the boat and avoid touching any metal hardware, tackle boxes or the edges of the boat if possible. Avoid open slabs of rock or rock overhangs as the electrical current from a nearby ground strike can travel across wet ground, water and rocks. If you are on a ridge top or mountain, get down as low into the valley or gullies as you can. If you are carrying a rifle over your shoulder, remove it as it could act as a lightning rod. There is some debate among experts on whether or not you should retreat from your tent during a storm. The universally agreed upon principle is that you need to get as small as possible without lying flat on the ground.
If you have a rubber air mattress, you should crouch down into a ball on these rubber items and put all of your weight on the balls of your feet. If you have rubber-soled shoes or boots, put them on and remove any metal such as watches or cell phones from your body. Unfortunately, when you are outdoors and a severe lightning storm strikes, there are very few safe places to retreat. Thanks to Dodge, we were able to seek shelter from the storm and finish our hunt the next day. Unlike high voltage injuries with which massive internal tissue damage may occur, lightning seldom causes substantial burns. Most lightning burns are caused by objects such as rainwater, sweat, metal coins and necklaces being heated up and causing the burn. Lightning tends to cause injury to the nervous system and may affect any or all parts of the nervous system. Most lightning injuries and deaths can be prevented with advance planning, being aware of the developing weather situation and good common sense. A weather radio can help keep you informed with the latest thunderstorm information and safety reminders.

Stoner suggests beginning study sessions, whether alone or in a group, with a simple meditation like Stop, Breathe & Think to increase your focus and mitigate stress. If you catch yourself lying awake at night, frantically reviewing everything you have to do the next day, give journaling a try. Even when you feel like you’re rocking nursing school, bad vibes from a colleague or a negative interaction can quickly ruin your mood.

Figure out what your preferred mood boosters are and incorporate them into your daily life for a more optimistic (and less stressful) routine. She says eating well is crucial, encouraging students to arrange healthy potlucks when they gather to study. Although stress is frustrating, it can be useful if it causes you to evaluate how you might be able to make things a little easier, healthier and more efficient for yourself. Nursing school is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to stressful situations you’ll encounter.

Although our instincts have dulled due to centuries of increased comfort, millennia of evolution caused some of them to remain, although some are in contrast with the society in which we live.
And since sleep is such an important part of our lives, you can bet that we still have some vestige instincts related to it.
Even though the researchers found it surprising that the tablet didn’t cause the participants to take longer to fall asleep, a half an hour delay was noticed in the apparition of restorative slow waves.
With no sources of artificial illumination, any strong light meant that the sun was up, so they had to start their day. They were all familiar with tablets, and for a week before the study they followed a regular sleep schedule and slept for however much they needed.
Data collected was related to sleep efficiency, total sleep time, time spent in each stage of sleep and other sleep quality-related data. The second night saw them reading from a tablet for half an hour before going to sleep, and the third one saw them reading a book.
As expected participants were sleepier when reading the book, and slow wave activity, responsible for deep sleep, was delayed and slowed down. Before earning her Bachelor of Arts with a major in Creative Writing, Carol travelled across Europe and Asia to find both herself and inspiration.
While we can't control the weather, we can certainly keep our hair and makeup in tip-top shape, no matter what. For days when the weather is gloomy, opt for an easier, more natural look instead of lots of drama. The thrill of camping in the snow or cold weather conditions is unbeatable and is an example of surviving in extreme weather conditions. If you are someone who is planning to experience cold weather camping, then there are some tips which can help you go through the outing without any difficulties. This fire is even more important during cold weather camping trips.  Start the fire before doing any other set up as this can considerably reduce the cold and will make it easier for you to do other activities like setting up the tent etc.
Whether you drink water or hot drinks like hot tea or coffee, remember to keep the liquids levels in the body up. Choose a place where the tent can remain stable and where the direction of snow is not directed towards you. Consider wearing clothes to bed and do not take off the gloves or socks even while sleeping. Weather and survival experts both tell you to stay away from water, avoid being near trees or in wide-open spaces and to not to be the tallest thing around during a lightning storm. Some experts agree if a storm strikes at night and you are in your tent—even under trees—you should stick it out in the tent. But using a little common sense while making yourself as small as possible and removing any metal objects from your person increases your chances of staying alive during severe weather.

We gathered advice on relieving nursing school stress from the graduates themselves and boiled it down into seven tips to help you get through nursing school without caving into the pressure.
Pull your notes out for a few minutes on the bus, waiting in line at the grocery store or even on a bench outside your classroom. Taylor met with a study group every week to compare notes, demonstrate skills and practice NCLEX-style questions. While exercise has long been proven to help relieve stress and anxiety, it also boosts your ability to retain the information you’re studying.
She and her friends used to take study breaks to discuss notes for their exams while walking or jogging. Nursing students find a lot of solidarity in the collective stress they feel, and taking steps to abate that stress together will only increase camaraderie.
Nancy Brook, Stanford Hospital nurse practitioner, mentor and author, recommends taking just a few minutes before bed to jot down your thoughts, experiences or concerns in a journal. And since nursing is such a people-oriented field, learning what brightens your bad days will come in handy after graduation as well.

While your health and sanity might be able to endure a short period of exhaustion, caffeine and on-the-fly meals, your performance will plummet as the months add up.
If you feel too strapped for time to put a healthy dish together, think of it as part of your studies. Learning how to handle the pressure now will serve you well throughout your entire nursing career. She earned her MFA in poetry in 2014 and looks for any opportunity to write, teach or talk about the power of effective communication.
For example, light is an indicator of wakefulness, so a team of Norwegian scientists showed that sleep quality is affected by reading a tablet. And this trait evolved over tens of thousands of years hasn’t yet been completely removed by a few years of comfort.
Here are some hair and makeup tips that will have you singin' in the rain and looking great while you do it.
Rather than doing a smoky eye that might be hard to clean up if it gets wet, choose something light and simple. Put in a few extra products you might need to touch up with, and get to work a few minutes early to do any last-minute fixes in the mirror before you start your day.
If you want to wear your hair down but it tends to get really frizzy in wet and humid weather, style it as normal, then wrap it in a bun and take it down once you are inside. However, what do you do when you are camping, hiking, hunting or fishing and a severe lightning storm strikes?
You maybe safer simply because of the dangers posed from leaving your tent in a rush and venturing off the trail into the darkness.

They are terrifying and can happen anytime and anywhere, particularly those places that are close to the edges of tectonic plates. If there’s an earthquake in the middle of the night and you are in bed, what you need to do is to roll out of the bed. Move to a safer location in the house, such as under a strong table, desk, or an interior wall. In general, earthquakes with a magnitude of 6.0 and below are non-life threatening, but you still have to protect yourself in all cases. Katz cut cramming from her routine this way and was able to get a good night’s sleep instead.
Harvard Medical School credits regular exercise for the memory-enhancing release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). If time or space limitations make running or walking problematic, Katz also suggests jumping rope.
You study for good results on your tests, and investing time in your health will also lead to good results on your tests.
Makeup wipes, beauty blender sponges, and Q-tips are great products to keep on hand for inclement weather.
We knew we could not retreat to our individual tents—that just happened to be really cool teepees complete with their own set of lightning rods pointing directly towards the sky.
This is their natural instinct for survival and safety and therefore, you should emulate it. You can sleep easier knowing you don’t have to remember everything thanks to the record of reminders on your bedside table.

She is a member of POMA and former Board of Directors member as well as a member of the NRA, RMEF, MDF and DU. There should be no utility wires around, overpasses, buildings, and trees, as these things can fall onto your car. Make sure you stay away from windows, hanging objectives, heavy furniture and appliances, and even fireplaces. Rubbing will lead to smudging, and with waterproof products you will need to use eye makeup remover to fully remove. If the building does collapse, you can find that there are voids or spaces where you can stay to survive. The best thing to do is to get next to a certain object, such as a sofa, which will compress only slightly.
Even if you are in a strong building, which may not collapse, make sure that you stay away from the stairs. If you are cooking, stop what you’re doing, turn off the stove immediately, and take cover. If you can’t find wooden buildings, the next option is a brick building although this can break into individual bricks.
