10 Health Mistakes that Everyone Makes
Over-exercising, driving with the windows down and forgetting to floss would b e the more serious consequences than your expectations. Simple few changes could be handled your daily routine in a positive way. Here the most common health mistakes that everyone makes.
Driving with the windows down
With the wind blowing through our hair on a warm day we feel pretty content cruising up the motorway. But this will be harmful for our lungs as we breathe in the harmful pollutants emitted by cars. A study from the University of Southern California has found that spending a mere six per cent of our day driving in the car with the windows down exposes us to around 45 per cent of the pollutants that we encounter in 24 hours.
Carrying a heavy handbag
Lugging a heavy load around can really take its toll on your health by causing back spasms, disc degeneration, neck problems, arthritis, and poor posture. You’ve packed your makeup, phone, purse and keys and your camera too. Is this necessary stuff? You must cut down the unnecessary things from your bag and possibly clean your hand bags.
Spending too long exercising
It is common thinking if we exercise too much, then our body will become fit. But working your body too hard can lead to abnormal hormonal changes, a weaker immune system, shin splints, muscle damage and knee, foot or back problems. Don’t go overboard, important to reap the benefits of exercise for a healthy lifestyle.
Scrimping on sleep
when suddenly you look at the clock and it’s way past the time you hoped to go to bed and closer to the time you need to get up for work, You’ve crammed everything you can possibly fit into twenty four hours and more. No matter how healthy you are, how much you exercise, you look less attractive when we’ve had little sleep. Droopy eyelids and pasty skin are the least of our worries when it comes to our habit of scrimping on sleep.
Avoiding the scales
Avoiding scales in the homes is one of the common mistakes we see how much you’ve gained, if you feel like you’ve gained weight. Don’t panic if you’ve gained a couple of pounds here and there, because everyone’s weight naturally fluctuates so. But you should probably reign in your eating habits, if you gain more than five pounds.
Stress can be positive in helping to keep you alert and avoid but endless worrying eventually leads to distress which causes headaches, sleep deprivation, chest pain, an upset stomach, and high blood pressure. Whilst it’s natural to worry when you have a deadline looming, panicking too much about petty things needs to be sorted. But too much of it can be detrimental to your health.
Stopping medicines suddenly
If you stop your medication because you are feeling better, it’s not good for your health. Discontinuing your medicine or abruptly stopping certain medications suddenly can cause mild headaches or life threatening. Don’t avoid your medicine until your doctor gives the “all clear”.
Forgetting to floss
It’s a step that many of us skip because we don’t feel much different whether we floss or not, but flossing is a key component when it comes to oral hygiene. You may don’t have idea that plaque between the teeth can be more serious. It can cause chronic inflammation and increase the risk of heart disease, premature birth, cancer and stroke, if the bacteria find its way into blood stream.
Eat breakfast and feel happier, but if you skip your breakfast then it can be lead to higher risk of diabetes and to obesity as your body stores up more fat to use as fuel throughout the rest of the day.
Drinking water from the warm tap
Scientists suggest that drinking water from the warm tap could cause lead poisoning which has potential health risks, so never drink water from the warm tap. Always drink from the cold tap.
