Christmas post

In the Orthodox churches of the Byzantine tradition, the Christmas fast is one of the four many-day fasts of the church year and serves as a 40-day preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Christ.

Christmas fast is observed from November 28 to January 6 inclusive and ends with the feast of the Nativity of Christ on January 7.

I want to slow my aging

About a century ago, the science of gerontology arose, studying the biological, social and psychological aspects of human aging, its causes and ways to deal with it.

I’m an athlete

Engaging in physical education is not only useful, but also fashionable. Today, young people and middle-aged people regularly visit fitness clubs, train in sections or on their own. Someone trains every day, someone once a week, and each sets its own tasks – either to build muscle, or to gain a slender figure, or simply to maintain and strengthen health. It is useful to know in this case that according to the Scandinavian recommendations on nutrition and a healthy lifestyle (NNR), which are the most authoritative for the Nordic countries (including Russia), adults need to spend at least 150 minutes a week on moderate loads or more than 75 minutes per week for high-intensity loads. This means that you need to train at least two to three times a week. If this doesn’t work out like this, you can gain the necessary level of physical activity with daily morning exercises (at least 15-20 minutes) and walking, controlled by a pedometer (10 thousand steps per day).
