Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

Many people feel tired at work every day and they blame it on having too much work and not enough time to get it done. However, the cause of this tiredness is usually either poor diet, lack of exercise, not enough sleep, alcohol consumption the night before, or some combination of these things. Whatever the reason for your tiredness, and no matter the industry you work in, it’s likely very important that you remain awake and alert while at work.

The goal here is to get extra energy and survive the entire day. These tips will help people stay alert, have more energy, and focus better on the job at hand.

1. Limit The Caffeine

Caffeine can cause headaches, upset stomach, and the jitters. However, one cup of coffee, before 2 PM, can keep one from getting more tired during the day. Tea can offer the same benefits, and provides a sustained release of caffeine rather than the instant jolt that coffee offers. Caffeinated teas should be avoided after 2pm for the same reason, however. 

2. Eat Healthy During The Day

Most people know that eating too much always make them sleepy. However, healthy food can keep a person awake and alert if it’s eaten in small portions. Instead of having a burger or pizza for lunch, enjoy a fresh spinach salad. Spinach relieves fatigue and contains B vitamins, iron, protein, and potassium, all of which will promote more energy.

Fruit is also your friend here. Eat small amounts of fruit every so often or have a bunch of grapes near you to nibble on. It’s also a great idea to have homemade energy bars on hand – the kind high in protein, fibre, and healthy fats, and low in sugar. These will offer you sustained energy rather than the crash and burn of a sugar binge. Also be sure to drink lots of water. 

3. Listen To Quiet Music

Music will cause emotional reactions that engage many parts of the brain. The music should be stimulating and quiet, however. When the music is turned down, it forces a person to listen more intently. If it’s difficult to hear the words, the sound is perfect, and the mind is working. Some people prefer listening to jazz because the music follows a less predictable pattern, forcing the mind to work harder when listening.

4. Exercise A Little

A little exercise will always rejuvenate a tired person. So, take a short walk during your lunch break, walk up and down the stairs, or do some stretching; any type of exercise will suffice. All of these elevate your heart rate, get your blood flowing, and produce more energy. You’ll instantly feel more awake.

5. Play A Game

When a person has been working on one thing for a bit too long, they need to take about ten minutes to switch off before resuming their task. Why not play a brain game? These games combine scientific methods with a “game” approach and can be done fairly quickly, so they won’t keep you away from work for too long. You can train in different mental areas, and the games are always challenging, with levels getting harder as one improves. The most important thing about these games is – they are fun!

6. Stand Up

We all know that sitting all day isn’t good for us, so try to work standing up for at least some of the day. Maybe there’s a lot of copying that needs to be done or a bunch of filing.  If there’s a place for a laptop, spend some time at a standing desk. Just do it for a while or until it’s no longer comfortable.

7. Expose Yourself To Natural Light

Our circadian rhythm needs sunlight to stay regulated. So, go outside for a few minutes, even if it’s cloudy or raining. If this isn’t possible, look out the window for a while. This will remind your brain that you are still in waking hours. 

By that same token, avoid screen time at night, or download a blue light filter app, to avoid confusing your internal clock. The blue light emitted from your screens tricks the brain into thinking it’s daytime, thereby preventing the release of melatonin, the sleep hormone.

8. Smells

Scents can wake up a person immediately! There are some essential oils, such as rosemary, eucalyptus, and peppermint, which are known to reduce fatigue. Many hand lotions contain these scents, while peppermint and rosemary can also be found in the grocery store. Try taking either fresh or dried rosemary or peppermint and rolling it between your fingers. Then take a whiff — it will instantly perk you up! The smell of coffee or coffee beans will produce a similar effect.

9. Deep Breathing

Take a slow deep breath, letting the stomach rise, while counting to four. Stop and hold the breath, counting to four again. Now, slowly exhale and let the stomach flatten, while counting to six. Repeat this exercise four times, and be amazed at how relaxed and energized you feel.

10. Chew

Simply put, a person can’t fall asleep if they’re chewing a piece of ice. The brain has to stay awake because of the cold temperature, and the action of chewing, which uses your facial muscles, stimulates blood flow to the head. Gum also works well here.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
