Increasing Temparature Causes Mental Health Problems , Increased Suicide Rate

According to a recent study report, there is an interconnection between hotter temperatures and mental health, if there is a condition of increasing temperature increase the number of hospital visits for mental health reasons and in suicide rates. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and globally.

In the latest study reports, the authors concluded that cooler temperatures decrease the level of adverse mental health outcomes and that warmer temperatures increase negative health outcomes. They provide further detail: “Our main estimates imply that increasing average monthly temperature by 1°F leads to a 0.48% increase in mental health [emergency department] visits and a 0.35% increase in suicides.”They also show that their estimates remain stable over time — in other words, people do not seem to adapt to changes in temperature very quickly. The authors explain that they found “no evidence of effective adaptation to the identified effects anywhere or among any group.
For many years, scientists have studied how climate affects the mental well-being of people. However, it is often difficult to link temperature directly to health outcomes. As an example, a 2017 study that focused on India found that suicide rates there peak in tandem with increasing temperatures.

However, the author explained the reason behind that, is the suicide rate only increases when the temperature spike occurs during the growing season. At this time, the higher temperature reduces crop yield and produces economic hardship, which, the author believes, might increase the risk of self-harm. So, in this case, temperature increases do not directly influence suicide rates.

Take care of your posture: Persistent pain in the lower back is mostly due to our sedentary lifestyle pain in the lower back is mostly due to our sedentary lifestyle. We often spend a large part of our days sitting. We sit for the entire day in the office working on our laptops, then while commuting, eating dinner, watching our favorite show late at night, everything in a seated position, which puts a lot of pressure on our lower back and in the end, we experience an irresistible pain. Most people either just learn to live with the pain or when it becomes unbearable they take pain killers. But these tricks only provide you temporary relief and the pain returns the next day. Here are some small tweaks that you can make in your daily routine to get rid of nasty lower back pain.

For the first 48 hours, it is recommended to apply ice therapy as heat can make your swelling worse. Never place ice directly on your skin as it will give you frostbite. Wrap the ice cubes in a cloth or towel and apply it on the affected area.
Get proper sleep : Bad sleeping posture can even lead to chronic back pain in the morning. So, make sure you sleep for 7-8 hours at night in a good posture. Apart from this, your mattress and pillow can also give you lower back pain. So change them if they are 7 years old.
