Daily we indulge in activities that are not good for our health, and we do not even realise. Some of them are so severely harmful that their adverse effects cannot be reversed.
They can range from eating steamy hot food in plastic containers and also remaining seated for a longer duration of time. Also one of the most common these days is wearing contact lenses for an extended period. Let me tell you, this harms your eyes, massively.
But the point of concern here is that we are not concerned about these things and do not give two hoots about them. We are too laid back to take care of these habits and then end up suffering because of common bad habits of carelessness, procrastination, and unawareness.
It is the time that we stop getting indifferent to these habits and their repercussions before it is too late. 'Cause better late than sorry!
Here is a list of habits that we indulge in daily, but have to give up, instantly!
More often than not, most of us forget to drink water while we are engrossed in work. Dude, this is darn harmful. Lack of water in our bodies hampers the digestive system. Minimum two litres of water is essential for an adult in a day. Please see to it that you fulfil it.
The news of blindness due to the use of phones in bed and that too in a dark background has been doing the rounds for some time now. It is bad for your sleep cycle and also hampers your sound sleep. So, it is advisable to keep phones at bay, while in bed.
Most of us leave for our workplaces in the morning and return later in the day when the sun is nowhere to be seen. Dude, let me tell you, this may create a Vitamin D deficiency in your body. A little exposure to the sun is necessary, for it facilitates the absorption of calcium and promotion of bone growth.
Sitting in uncomfy positions for long durations of time and then not realising that it may be harmful, can cause postural problems. Ranging from back pain to spondylitis, there are dire consequences of this carelessness.
Taking medicines without consulting a physician for non-life threatening diseases is another commonly found bad habit. Taking such medications for problems like insomnia and anxiety can lower life expectancy, and we are innocent, or rather careless that we do not look into the adverse effects of them. Instead, some natural methods must be deployed.
Contact lenses block the contact of some parts of the eye with oxygen. Doing so for an extended period leads to dryness, this may hamper the eyesight over a period. Moreso, overuse can cause damage to the cornea of the eye, so watch out folks!
Sometimes our hunger pangs coax us to hog on whatever is available and in a hurry, we gorge on all the junk food that our hands can hunt for quickly. In the process, we take in more preservatives, which lead to some diseases over a period. So, please say yes to some freshly cooked food.
Often sleeping late in the night and waking up late the next morning and then rushing to work, we miss the most important meal of the day. Yes, it is the breakfast. It is important because it breaks your night long fast, wherein the body desperately needs food. If skipped, it gradually develops weakness in the body.
Using smartphones and giving them priority has now ripped us off our relationships. They are not given enough importance, even when you are together, you are on your phone. This hampers your health, and your relations are long lost!
Just look up from your phones, and the world is your oyster.
Why do we need a nod from others for something that we want to do?
This is the habit that we must get rid of, at first. Believe in yourself and your instincts; rest will all be sorted.
Do share with people you find these habits in, asking them to change.
