途中で仕事を止めることに抵抗する隊員もいる。しかし、長期戦を戦うためには、短期的な感情に流されず、しっかり疲労をコントロールしなければならない。隊員にとって、休養することは、頑張ることと同じ、いやそれ以上に必要な「仕事」なのだ。
いまや中学生の25%がうつと言われる時代になった(傳田健三『子どものうつ心の叫び』講談社より)。
 一番の原因は、情報過多だ。インターネット、マスコミなどであふれる情報に関心があり、感情豊かに反応してしまう。若者は、肉体や頭脳労働ではなく、感情労働で疲労してしまうのだ。
短期的、肉体的ストレスでは、このブレーキをかける機能も働きやすかった。ある行動を続けようと思っていても、足が動いてくれないという極端な疲労感、眠気、空腹やのどの渇きなどで、行動にブレーキがかかったのだ。
 つまりムリが行きすぎることは少なかっただろう。
 あるいは、環境が厳しかったので、ムリしなければ、いずれにしても生き延びられなかった。
 この二つの結果、原始時代は心底疲れ果てた人には、なかなかお目にかかれなかっただろう。
 ところが、現代では様相が変わってきた。栄養や安全は確保され、ムリしなくても生きていける。しかし逆に頭脳労働を長期的に行うことで、知らない間にムリが深くなってくる。

Audio Meditation and the Great Binaural Beats Controversy

Basic Facts.

Binaural beats are produced by recording a tone of a particular frequency in one track of a stereo file, and a tone of a slightly different frequency in the other track. The human brain picks up the difference between the two tones as a series of beats. For example, if one track is at 60HZ (60 cycles per second) and the other at 50HZ, the brain will interpret this as a 10HZ beat (60-50=10). Stereo headphones are needed to listen to binaural recordings. Monaural tones are produced by combining the two tracks into one mono recording. The resultant waveform varies in strength at a rate equal to the difference between the two frequencies. The beats are then contained within the recording, rather than being produced by the brain. Isochronic tones consist of a series of pulses, separated by periods of silence. A 10HZ tone would be produced by including 10 separate pulses in each second of recording.

What do the scientists say?

The answer is surprising. Firstly, numerous studies have shown that binaural beats do not appear to produce any significant entrainment effect. That is, no matter how long you listen to, say, a binaural recording containing theta beats, your brain will not respond with an increase of theta activity. On the other hand, extensive studies have confirmed that monaural and isochronic tones do induce entrainment. Isochronic tones are the most effective of the three modes. A recent study by Tina Huang and Christine Charyton – “A Comprehensive Review of the Psychological Effects of Brainwave Entrainment” – confirms beneficial effects from brain entrainment as a whole, but a closer examination of their paper reveals that there are no positive results when binaural beats are used on their own. It’s interesting that this paper is often quoted by proponents of binaural beats as evidence of their effectiveness, when the study actually finds otherwise. Another report by David Siever, of Mind Alive, confirms that only monaural or isochronic tones produce demonstrable evidence of entrainment. His article quotes a number of research projects which failed to find any entrainment effects from binaural beats.

your attempt at negan is irreversibly terrible.

We’re all entitled to our own opinions, however it’s your commitment to making your’s known in an anonymous fashion that not only makes you an asshole, but a coward as well! I know anon hate usually gets people down, but it doesn’t really bother me because it’s pretty pathetic that you need to go out of your way to get your OPINION across. 

Whether you love my version of SHOW Negan, or whether you hate him; I really don’t care… But there’s legitimately nothing forcing you to follow, interact, or so much as SEE my portrayal; you realize this right? Like, if you follow someone who interacts me, block my url and you won’t see my shit. 

I think I’m doing a pretty DAMN good job and while I have my days where that varies, I’ve got a wonderful amount of people on here that want to write with me and that keep this FUN for me. So anon, you can fuck right off. Go find something that makes you happy because you seem goddamn miserable.

negan x tinder is the greatest.

It gives me life, if that’s any consolation. Brb starting a verse which purely revolves around Negan’s tinder dates. The successes, the failures, the kooky bitches that he can’t escape, stage five clingers. Give it to me

Hiya!! Do an scenario were the devils accidentally saw Ritsuka and Azuna changing clothes, Lindo too please 😣!!! . I think it will be hella fun!! Arigato😂

Rem walked into a classroom after hours, he was surprised when he saw Ritsuka and Azuna in there changing. He had to pull himself away from staring at the red Ritsuka and cover his eyes.

“Why are you 2 changing in here?” He sighed in annoyance.

“Well…all the bathroom doors were locked so we snuck in here?” Ritsuka pathetically answered.

“Why are you 2 even here this late?”

“That’s none of your business, now shoo!” Azuna said to Rem, who simply sighed and walked out.

Urie was just wondering around the school when he smelled Ritsuka. Deciding to go talk to her he walked to where she was. He opened the door to the class room and walked in, blinking when he saw Ritsuka and Azuna topless. He raised a pleasant brow before covering his eyes, a smirk on his face.

“My bad.~” Urie hummed. “I’m sorry my butterflies.~”

“G-Get out!!” Azuna yelled, “before I toss holy water on you!”

Urie laughed, “okay okay, I’m going I’m going.” He backed out and closed the door, a satisfied grin on his face as he left.

Mage was over Ritsuka’s house, he convinced her to help her study for a test. They had finished up and then Azuna came over saying why don’t they go for a swim. Agreeing Mage left and changed, now back in the house he was now looking for Azuna and Ritsuka. He walked up to her door and knocked, opening it.

“Mage wait!!” But it was too late, the door was open. Ritsuka and Azuna were bare naked and looking at binkis. Mage looked at Ritsuka, and her cute little red face and her cute little frame and couldn’t help but blush.

“Erm , I’m sorry….”

“STOP STARING!” Azuna yelled and threw a flip flop at Mage, making him run out.

Shiki smelt Ritsuka and Azuna in the girls locker room at school. He grinned as he walked there, wondering what they were doing at school so late. He opened the door and walked in, seeing them both changing and smirked.

“Oh, what a nice gift~” He purred and looked at them.

“Get out!!” Azuna covered herself and took off her shoe, throwing it right at Shiki’s forehead, he moaned and walked closer.

“Do that again~!”

“GET OUT!!!” Azuna grabbed him and dragged him out angrily by his ear

Lindo walked into Ritsuka’s room with a little tray of cookies he made for her and Azuna, but when he entered he could feel his jaw drop. Ritsuka and Azuna were naked….expect for their bra and panties. He held in a blush and closed his eyes.

“Sorry…erm, I should’ve knocked…” He said awkwardly. “But I brought cookies?” He could hear Ritsuka and Azuna giggle a bit and the sound of cloth moving. They walked over and took the tray.

“That’s nii-san!” Ritsuka said, eating a cookie.

“You can open your eyes now, nii-san.” Azuna mocked. Lindo opened his eyes and rolled them with a smile.
