How to Protect Your Head When Playing Sports 0

Posted on February 14, 2021 by Susan Melony

Sports of all kinds are among the best activities to spend your free time on. They’re perfect for staying in shape, making new friends, and having fun, and the best part of all is how accessible they are. Anyone, regardless of age or background, can get some friends together or join a sporting club and take part in games like football, hockey, and baseball.

Statistics show that sports are immensely popular too, with the average American spending half an hour of every day engaging in some kind of sporting activity, and millions of Americans getting involved with a wide range of sports and games. These kinds of activities are particularly popular with young people, but even older folks can have fun on the sporting field.

However, while sport participation numbers are high and sport offers many advantages, it also comes with its own risks and dangers. This is especially true when playing contact sports, like football or soccer, but it can also apply to other kinds of sports too, as there are always risks of bumping into other players, getting tackled, or falling on the ground while running around.

Posted on February 03, 2021 by Johan Godoy

After your workout, do you sit around with your gym clothes? There’s no doubt your gym clothes are comfortable to wear for errands or to grab a coffee before going home or to your workplace– but that’s not a good idea. Wearing your gym wear that’s soaked with sweat harbors bacteria,  and you are making it more sweaty, which leaves you from being at risk for infection or sickness.

The fabric your gym clothes are made of absorbs your body oils and fluids. It seeps your sweat giving it a foul odor. Thus, it is best to change to clean gym clothes. Bring extra workout clothes. Play by the rules to get rid of the smell of a sweat from your workout clothes.

Here are some of the best ways to remove foul odor on gym clothes:

  1. Wash your gym clothes immediately.

Gym clothes are usually soaked with sweat after doing sports or your gym session. If you hit the gym before work, you can either wash them in your self-timer washer or drop them off at the laundry service near your office.

Immediately washing your gym clothes that are soaked with sweat help remove foul odor, rather than dry and wash them later.

2. Do not pile your gym clothes with your regular clothes.

Work after your workout and a busy schedule is a bad combination for your sweaty gym clothes. 

After your post-workout shower, do not forget to hang your sweaty gym clothes on a drying rack. Do not pile or place them in a hamper with your regular clothes. It will develop molds and worse, your traditional clothes will become smelly too. 

Do not let it linger with other clothes.

Posted on November 14, 2020 by Marty Wolner

Playing team sports can heal a developing brain from the impact of emotional trauma and extreme stress and promote improved mental health.
