10 habits ruining your health!!!Most of the time, people tend to jump inside the cars and go to
work and forget about taking breakfast. Breakfast is the most important
meal of the day. Try to eat healthy, small meals or snacks 5 – 6 times a
day, starting with a good breakfast that contains good quality protein.
We tend to love coffee with a little bit of creamer and some whipped
cream and other flavoured syrup. One or two cups in a day would not
harm. But the more you add cream and other flavoured syrups to your
coffee, the more you add calories to it. Avoid consuming extra cups of
coffee. Instead drink water as much as you can.
We tend to eat quickly especially during the last minutes of our lunch
break. Try to eat and taste the food first before you shove it down your
throat the next time.
Wearing the wrong shoes can pose a threat to your posture and your
overall gait. Even though you will not be able to feel the pain, hours and
hours of walking with your high heels can take its toll on your feet. Wear
comfortable flats instead.

leads to plaque formation, bad odour and oral infection. So, brushing
should be done right after every meal and should be done right before
you sleep. Replace your toothbrush every three to four months.

obesity. Sleeping too little can also contribute to weight gain by putting

Nowadays, boys are more into body building exercises, due to which they
are avoiding other exercises like cardiovascular exercises. Add treadmill
work, outdoor walking or running to your cardio routine.
Stretching out your back helps reduce back pain, but it can work against
you if you do it just after waking up in the morning. Before stretching in
the morning, do your usual routine such as drink coffee, wash your face
and brush your teeth.
Resisting the urge to empty your bladder can be harmful. This may result
in bladder infections. Go when you feel the urge. Try eliminating common
bladder irritants such as caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods, carbonated
beverages, chocolate and tea.
Carry your laptop or handbag over the same shoulder every day can also
lead to health problems like shoulder pain. Switch shoulders and/or hands
back and forth throughout the day when you carry a bag.
