Most people don’t try to do anything that’s bad for their health. But sometimes, you go about your day, not really thinking about anything and then BAM! You feel a little sick, you fall down, you get a headache, or any other ailment that may plague you. More often than not, you have no idea why your day is suddenly awful. Well, these could be one of the reasons why you are actually living a rather unhealthy life without even knowing it.
1.) Look at this guy, using his computer. It’s awesome, right? Wrong! Using a computer can be damaging to your health. The screen brightness can cause eye strain and headaches. Some computers also contain toxins that cause neurological damage as well.
2.) Nothing can be wrong with blow drying my hair though, am I wrong? Yes you are! Heat causes the hydrogen bonds in your hair to deteriorate which makes your hair susceptible to falling out.
3.) Biting a pencil is safe though, please tell me it’s safe. It’s not. Biting pencils and pens can damage your teeth or shift the positioning of them.
4.) I can go out without putting on sunscreen and I’ll be fine. Wow. You are just silly. Not only does sunblock protect you from harmful UV rays that cause skin damage, it helps your skin looking young and we all want that, right?
5.) Showering every day isn’t wrong. Actually it is, you nonbeliever. Showering every day with hot water and a scrubbing apparatus wears away your skin’s lipids which help keep your skin’s moisture.
6.) I heard jogging is healthy, please don’t make me feel stupid about that one. Sorry, I have to. Jogging increases your risk of arthritis, especially in your knees where most of the damage is felt.
7.) I can eat lemons, there is nothing wrong with that. You couldn’t be more wrong. The acidity in lemons actually erodes your teeth’s enamel, which is essential to a healthy mouth.
8.) I can enjoy popcorn when I see a movie though, right? I wouldn’t if I were you! Popcorn can get stuck in your teeth and cause infections. Also, biting down on a kernel can crack your teeth if you susceptible to that kind of damage.
9.) There’s nothing wrong with sitting in your office though, right? Nay! Your risk of heart disease increases 64% if you sit at your desk for 6+ hours a day.
10.) Wearing socks in bed couldn’t possibly be wrong. I think it is YOU who couldn’t be more wrong. Wearing socks in bed prevents the gaseous exchange of your body’s cells which not only damages your skin cells, but your brain cells as well.
These 10 perfectly normal activities are completely ruining your life… and you had no idea. Adjust your lifestyle so you can live the healthiest life possible (even if that means not wearing socks in bed). Share this post with your friends to alert them of their unhealthy ways.
