10 daily habits that leads to unhealthy you!
We love what we eat! But it is vital to sort out what is healthy and what is unhealthy food before it reaches our taste buds! But how? https://www.solvemyproblemm.com/video helps you identify 10 daily habits that can lead to an unhealthy you!
Satisfying your late night cravings with chocolate cake and pizzas might be a tempting way to each day, but it isn’t going to do any favor to your body. At times, we unintentionally end up hurting our health as well as our body on a daily basis with our habits.
Tickets to danger zone –
1. Snacking, even when not hungry:
If there is any disrupt in your regular eating pattern, then your body will no longer process hunger signals, resulting in you eating even when you are full. With this extra eating habit, your body will be flooded with unhealthy ingredients and extra calories, and you may as well end up with chronic health issues like heart problems, acidity and diabetes.
- Spending too much time on the couch watching TV:
Sitting for hours together on the couch, and watching TV can put your eyes and heart at risk. The more you are glued to the couch watching TV, the more immobile life you will have, affecting the levels of sugar and fat in your blood. Watching TV for too much time strains your eyes, damaging your refractive lens and also risks heart stroke and obesity.
- Eating too much fast food:
A life dependent on constant fast food can add to your waistline as well as cause serious health issues like diabetes, high cholesterol and heart problems, down the lane. The ‘yummy’ fast food is rich in bad fat, raising the bad cholesterol in your body, and causing to hardening of the arteries and may further cause plaque deposits. Thus, switch to a healthy diet immediately, and protect yourself from putting on weight and other chronic health problems.
- Lying constantly:
Surprised to see this point on a healthy living article? Well, those minute white lies can cause damage to your health. If you constantly lie, you will have constant fear of the truth being disclosed, which will build up the stress levels in you. Undoubtedly, stress is one of the worst things for your body, damaging your health by releasing stress hormones. Natural stress is a short-lived, fight-or-fight response to a threat, but self-created stress leads to far-reaching effects on your health like increased risk of overeating and overweight high-fats, too much sugar foods – both raise the odds for diabetes and heart disease.
- Skipping breakfast:
Crunching a bowl of corn flakes or munching a piece of morning toast signals to your metabolism that it’s high time to kick things up a notch. If you skip the fuel, your metabolism will run low, leading to sluggishness and weight gain. The ‘starve-now-indulge-later’ eating pattern, leads to overeating in the later part of the day.
Behind every cigarette pack, in every health tip, we come across this, ‘smoking kills’, yet people still persist with the smoking habit. Even a signal cigarette a day, can cause blood clots, preventing swift flow of the blood, developing plaque in your blood vessels and arteries. This bad habit also astronomically raises the odds for heart strokes and high blood pressure.
- Nail biting:
Your hands are constant travelers; throughout the day, they pick several things and then taking these nasty – ‘germ-filled’, fingers into your mouth, due to extreme nervousness or just for time pass, can make you bed-ridden for days, due to flu or cold. Therefore, stop this dirty habit right away.
- Plugged in with headphones for hours:
While working out or while travelling, we listen to music to pass time, and if you have plugged in for hours together, with no breaks, then you need to keep this habit under check. Listening to loud music via ear phones can cause hearing loss. Well, headphones themselves are no culprits, but the hours and the volume can land you in trouble.
- You are an ‘Owl’ at night:
If burning the midnight oil for work becomes a routine, you will end up damaging your health in the long run. Cutting down the hours of sleep, damages your immune system, and thus produces fewer ‘germ-fighter’, lowering your resistance for withstanding common bugs in the environment. Good sleep helps you keep fresh throughout the day.
- Carrying an extra heavy bag:
We just love to carry our world with us, wherever we go, because we just cannot afford to miss out on a single thing. This habit is completely hauling the world with our worldly pleasures on the back, causing lots of long term harm to our health, like neck pain, serious back pain and poor posture. Thus, do yourself a favor by emptying your bag to avoid aging your body prematurely.
Get into the ‘under construction’ mode – reverse your habits:
Now, you may start to panic, probably thinking “Oh my goodness! Lot of change is needed. Where do I start? How do I get myself to break the unhealthy habits I have? Well, if your attempt is determined and you are truly committed to the change, then definitely you will succeed.
Live a happier and healthier life!
