and connect everyone on this planet by three and a half degrees of separation. 📱📲

HOW FLYING CAN MESS WITH YOUR MIND

Uh oh – oxygen deficiency while flying actually increases anxiety. 😑
According to the BBC, flying actually alters our moods and can effect our senses quite dramatically.

A plane is an odd environment that our bodies aren’t necessarily built to endure. The air pressure is
similar to standing upon a
2.4km high mountain. The humidity is lower than in some of the world’s driest deserts. The air pumped into the cabin is cooled as low as 10°C to balance the heat generated from those onboard.

So what do these stats mean? Well, it impacts our bodies in many different ways:

  • Our ability to think clearly decreases while anxiety levels increase due to deficiency in oxygen.
  • Our night vision can deteriorate by 5-10%.
  • Sensitivity of our taste buds to salt and sweet reduces by up to 30% (hence why many airlines add extra seasoning to meals).
  • The change in air pressure can also lead to passengers breaking wind more often.
  • A long-distance flight
    can dry out our skin by up to 37%, and may lead to increased itchiness.
  • Low levels of air pressure and humidity can also amplify the effects of alcohol and the hangover it produces the next day.


It’s not all bad however:

  • Altitude can also make people feel happier. Thanks in large part to the inflight entertainment on long-haul flights.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
ELON MUSK

🔺“The reality is great highs, terrible lows and unrelenting stress. Don’t think people want to hear about the last two”🔻 – Elon Musk.

Elon Musk understands the struggles of being an entrepreneur better than anyone. It’s tough. There’s no two ways about it. It can be extremely strenuous on your body and mind. You have to do lots of things you don’t like. But Musk just deals with the pain and focuses on what he drives him. 👊
