Five Habits That May Damage Your Health Same As Smoking

Many people do not smoke, and they think it’s a sign of a healthy lifestyle, but at the same time they neglect other, seemingly harmless habits that damage their health same as smoking does.

The difference is only in the “mechanism” of long-term effects on the body.

sitting at work

Sitting For a Long Period

Even with regular exercise, daily sitting (as the one at work) is extremely harmful to your body.
Prolonged sitting affects on every kind of health problem.

If you sit for more than 8 hours a day, than it’s a must for you to include a minimum of 30 minutes of movement. Go to the store on foot instead of by car, if you use public transportation after work walk 15 minutes with colleagues.

In short, whenever you can, steal a chance to stretch your legs.

to much meat and cheese

Too much meat and cheese in the diet

This might be difficult to be followed by the most number of gourmets, but your diet should not be based on these two foods, as much as you may like them.

Of course, your body need animal protein we get from meat and cheese, but there are “vegetarian” sources of protein which, if taken, at least two or three times a week, can be a replacement for those foods.

For example, legumes is an ideal replacement and addition to the menu.

cooking on a gas stove

Cooking on a gas stove

Unlike an electric stove, gas has one flaw: when you cook, you get an extra dose of carbon monoxide and formaldehyde, two pollutants that you breathe. To solve this problem you must use the cooking hood which is required while cooking, because it reduces the level of pollutants by 60 to 90 percent.

using solarium

Using solarium

We constantly try to protect from the sun but we forget that the using “artificial” alternatives is not good for us, too. No matter tha the solarium is often advertised as “the safest sun”, it’s just a marketing trick.

Learn to love your own skin no matter what it is, because it is a healthier option.

If you want to give it shine, eat foods rich in carotene.

chronic insomnia

Chronic Insomnia

We must ensure that we get at least six to seven hours of sleep every day in order to protect ourselves from high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and a lot of other health problems.Fatigue is not normal and do not get used to it.

If necessary, fundamentally change your lifestyle habits to ensure adequate sleep.
