We live in an era of cut-throat competition. In such times, everyone is trying best to be better than others. Not just to compete but also to survive, one needs to have a sound health. But unfortunately, health is the most under rated asset in today’s times and is thus overlooked by most of us. We all have certain bad habits which gradually affect our overall health and lead us to many problems. In this article, we shall discuss about such bad habits which should be avoided at all cost.
1) Having food, without brushing teeth in the morning
This sounds quite basic for most of us. But there are some people who do not follow this habit. Others who do have this habit during normal days, tend to skip it while travelling. Let me tell you that having food without brushing teeth in the morning is harmful in more than one ways. The most prominent being, tooth decay and weakening of gums over a period of time.
2) Laying down in sleeping position immediately after having food
After meals, we feel lazy and many people just tend to lie down in sleeping position. This is a very unhealthy habit as it leads to digestion related disorders.
3) Opportunistic Smoking
Smoking itself is injurious to health. Smokers are just inclined to find reasons to smoke. When they feel happy – they smoke, when they feel sad – they smoke, when they feel stressed – they smoke. It should be kept in mind that, every puff that is taken in, takes you closer to a life threatening health condition.
4) Occassional Drinking to Regular Drinking
Just like smoking, consumption of alcohol is injurious to your health and overall well being. Some people call themselves occasional drinkers. Very often it has been seen that drunkards who consume alcohol on daily basis, once started as occasional drinkers.
5) Rebounding after dieting
Some people follow dieting plans to control their weight. Many people do have that will power to follow such plans for long period of time. However, when they are put into a situation where they have to break their plan (under the pretext of social function or a cheat day), they just tend to gobble up everything – healthy food or unhealthy food – they lay their hands upon. This act is just a rebound and will undo the good effects of following a diet plan in the preceding period.
6) Regular consumption of Junk Food
Having junk food once in a while is not a problem. But if you start having it more than once a week, it will lead to serious health problems. By junk food, we are referring to food items that are high on trans fat, salt, sugar and contain harmful chemicals in the form of preservatives.
