7 Daily Habits That Can Damage Your General Health
People are sticking to their routines or habits and it’s difficult for them to change that. Once you establish a new routine or habit, it can be really hard to break the cycle. But some of the everyday habits might be putting your health at risk. If you “practice” any of the following habits , it might be time to change up your routine.
These 7 habits can damage your general health:
Preventing From Sneezing
When you squeeze your nose to stop a sneeze or you close your mouth, your intracranial pressure actually increases. This disrupts the blood flow to the brain and that causes the blood vessels and nervous tissue to become compressed. You may experience headaches as result, hearing problems or blood vessel damage . So next time you feel a sneeze is coming on, let it out!
Most commercial colognes or perfumes are full of synthetic substances. Those substances are toxic to our body. They can cause nausea, dizziness and drowsiness. The harmful substances in perfume can also irritate your throat, eyes and skin. If you want to smell good, try swapping out your perfume for some essential oils.
Using A Smartphone Before Going to Bed
The blue artificial light from smartphone suppresses melatonin. It is a hormone that regulates the sleep and wake cycle. If you’re playing on your phone right before going to bed, you’re most likely going to get a poor night’s sleep. Low melatonin levels can also lead to obesity, depression, fragile immune system and heart disease.
Storing Food In Plastic Containers
Plastic containers may contain BPA and other chemical substances. When you store food in plastic containers or plastic wrap, those chemicals can end up seeping into the food and can have a negative effect on your endocrine system. Store food in stainless steel, glass or ceramic containers instead.
Brushing Teeth Right After Eating
Acidic food and drinks can effect tooth enamel, and the layer below it as well, called dentin. When you brush your teeth right after eating, your toothbrush pushes in fact the acid even closer and deeper to the dentin. This can damage the enamel and cause extreme sensitivity to the teeth.
Using Antibacterial Soap
Is true that antibacterial soap may sterilize your hands. But sterilizing can also create an opportunity for harmful bacteria to enter your body. Some helpful bacteria live on the surface of the skin. They play a role in protecting the body. When you get rid of the useful bacteria, you actually put your body at risk. Make sure you aren’t using antibacterial soap too often.
Wearing Tight Jeans
when it comes to fashion,tight jeans might be “in” but they aren’t exactly good for the body. Tight jeans constantly press on your skin and nerve endings. They can cause reduced air flow to your legs and lead to problems with the nervous system. Choose jeans that are a comfortable fit! Your body will be thankful!
