Beautiful music but without carbon dioxide
I like to listen to rock and pop when I win, when I'm in the saddle classical music calms my nerves.
Very important is the health, but I have a tip. What's this?

It is a Co2 meter. What does a trader need a CO2 meter for?
Carbon dioxide or carbon dioxide is a chemical compound of carbon and oxygen with the molecular formula CO2. In high concentrations, this gas can be toxic to humans.
Outdoors there is a CO2 value of about 450 ppm (part per million). In closed rooms, especially in winter, the value can increase enormously.
For values below 800 ppm, the indoor air quality is considered good, values between 800 and 1000 ppm (0.08 to 0.1% by volume) are considered moderate, values from 1000 to 1400 ppm as moderate quality. For values above 1400 ppm, the indoor air quality is considered low. Then you should air. Before I bought the meter, I often had a headache while trading or was tired.
Carbon dioxide dissolved in the blood activates the respiratory center of the brain in physiological and slightly increased concentration. This means that the brain gets too little oxygen. In closed rooms, this often does not occur, you get tired and you get a bad headache.
Since I have the meter I'm warned. As soon as the room air reaches a value of more than 1,400 ppm, the device answers. Then I open the windows for 5 - 10 minutes and the value has dropped to 500 ppm.
Depending on how many people are in the room, the CO2 value goes up faster or slower.
Since then, I'm not tired anymore, I rarely have a headache and the concentration is optimal. I gave such a device to my son's school. If there are 20 children in a room, the CO2 levels are significantly worse. Since they now open the windows more often, the children can concentrate much better.
Such a device you get on Ebay or in stores, it costs about $ 130. Compared to the benefit is little money. Of course you can also open the window from time to time, but you know even if you are in a fever in trading that is quickly forgotten.
Healthy life includes good air and low CO2. Of course, this includes sports, the right diet and a lot of drinking.
Headache and tiredness done.
I wish you a nice week
