It has been said that “Health is Wealth”. And there really is a lot of truth to this. Nowadays most people do tend to be health conscious and do a lot of reading online and in other places, to find out how to live healthy lives.
Ironically, though there is so much misinformation going round that lots of people are actually following the wrong advice and making major health mistakes without realizing it. Others just don’t even know where to start from. To help you out, we have compiled this guide of the top 4 common health mistakes most people seem to be making.
1. Skipping Breakfast
This is a common mistake among working class people. Most working class people have made, it a norm to skip breakfast in order to save time and get to work early. But this is just terrible for your health. You must understand that, when you sleep your metabolism slows down significantly, so when we wake up, it needs food to be activated again.
I have noticed that a number of people carry along the misconception that ‘skipping breakfast helps to lose weight’ in reality, it actually does the opposite because, skipping breakfast just opens up your gut to eat more for the remaining hours of the day. My advice to you is don’t skip breakfast.
2. Heavy Handbags
It can be amusing, how people carry needless items in their bags, everywhere they go. You might find it surprising to learn that constantly carrying heavy handbags is one of the major causes of bad posture, neck problems, arthritis, aches around the collar bone and a host of other joint related complications.
3. Uncontrolled Anxiety
Erma Bombeck once said, “Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere.” Now, being anxious about something good you are anticipating may not entirely be harmful, but when that anxiety is uncontrolled, resulting in depression, then there is trouble. Medically diabetes, ulcer, high blood pressure and heart diseases can all be traced to uncontrolled anxiety.
4. Dodging Water
Water has numerous benefits for health, and Scientists have revealed that about 60-70% of the human body is made up of water. It is recommended that you drink at least 8 glasses of water every day as, a deficiency of water can cause dehydration, fatigue, mood swings and constipation. Water plays a major role in the digestion and metabolism process.
