This is followed by physiology - the science of the functional activity of animal organisms, including humans.
Let's go through a couple of basic things to know.
According to WHO, more than 80% of teenagers worldwide experience a lack of physical activity. Physical activity not only improves well-being, mood, muscle tonus and normalizes sleep, but also can help in the game by improving reaction time and brain function. Novice esports players should also not forget about possible problems with vision, posture and tunnel syndrome.
If a couple of decades ago, tunnel syndrome was considered a disease of musicians, who need to bring the movements of the hands to automatism, now, many esports players experience similar problems. Take care of your health and exercise.
Everyone knows that nutrition affects all the most important functions of the body. Proper nutrition will help improve your physical condition and performance. Try to add variety to your diet and consume more natural foods: fruits, vegetables, berries, seafood, grains, and nuts.
Drink the water! Don't wait until you feel thirsty. By the time you feel thirsty, you're already a little dehydrated. Dehydration can lead to headaches and affect your mood. Keep a bottle or glass of drinking water handy.
Overeating is the enemy of mental activity. You shouldn't overeat before important matches. When a large amount of food enters the stomach, the blood flow is redistributed and our brain receives less nutrients and oxygen. As a result, there is lethargy and drowsiness. The optimal meal time is 1.5-2 hours before an important match. If hunger strikes during a match or during a break, fast carbs will help restore your energy supply. The choice of many esports players falls on bananas or sugar-containing drinks.
Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. The players remain in focus despite the fact that happens in the game. Frustration, anger, anxiety, and fear of making a mistake are all stressors. If you stop coping and letting go of negative moments, then this becomes the beginning of burnout. How to avoid burnout: Take a break from playing, normalize sleep, exercise, and start managing stress.
Regardless of the sleep chronotype, it is important to get enough sleep. With a good sleep pattern, the body recovers, a healthy metabolism is formed and long-term memory is strengthened. On the other hand, lack of sleep leads to poor brain function, poor mood, and other negative consequences. Quality sleep mode affects your matches and the decisions you make. An hour before bedtime, try to get away from the computer and gadgets, spend time with your loved ones or with your favorite book.
Just track all aspects of life and in the long run and you will see the result!
