It hard to learn and adjust to a healthier lifestyle, BUT it’s harder to drop and unlearn all the habits that you thought was OK but can actually cause harmful effects on your body. For you to identify, here are Everyday Habits That Damage Your Health:
Preventing Yourself From Sneezing. When you prevent a sneeze, your intracranial pressure increases significantly. This affects your brains’ blood flow and compresses your blood vessels and nervous tissues that may cause headaches, damaged vessels, and hearing problems.
Using Perfume. Synthetic substances used in perfumes can cause dizziness, nausea, and drowsiness. It also irritates your eyes, throat, and skin.
Using Your Smartphone Before Bed. Artificial light such as those produced by a smartphone reduces your melatonin levels, the hormone that regulates sleep and wakefulness. This can cause depression, cancer, obesity, heart disease, and fragile immune system.
Plastic Containers. Plastic boxes contain chemical substances like ‘phthalate’ and ‘bisphenol’. If food is stored in these containers for a long time, the chemicals can seep into your food and damage your endocrine system.
Brushing Your Teeth Right After Eating. Brush your teeth at least 30 minutes after eating. Most foods have a certain level of acidity and the movement of your toothbrush pushes the acid deeper, damaging your teeth.
Antibacterial Soap. Lots of beneficial bacteria play a role in protecting your body and counter bad bacteria. If you use antibacterial soaps to often, this will sterilize your skin which causes harmful bacteria to enter the body.
Tight Jeans. This presses tightly on your skin and nerve endings. This causes discomfort and can lead to problems with your nervous system. The reduced flow of air to your legs will also cause itching, tingling, and can make your legs numb.
