5 DAILY HABITS THAT DAMAGE YOUR BRAIN

We all have the freedom to live whatever way we want to but then doing this at the expense of our health is not the right way to go about it. Every day we go about our usual activities with little to no knowledge of the impact it has on our general health. Every day, the health of many deteriorates by the second because of one thing that they are doing wrong. The brain is the most important part of the body and the overall functionality of our system depends totally on it so if something goes wrong with our brain, the chance that something will go wrong with some other part of our body will be increased by a 99 percent. Some of these habits include:

1. Working when you are sick: It is understandable that you are a hard worker but one thing that you should not compromise on is your health. Forcing your brain to do work when it should be doing is resting is posing danger on your brain. We often push ourselves to the limits, when we are in a hurry to finish up one report or the other when we have to stay up studying. The effects may not be seen at that point in time but eventually, it will begin to tell on our entire being.

2. Skipping Breakfast: Some of us are guilty of skipping the most important meal of the day because we are in a hurry to get somewhere. Others just simply skip it for no apparent reason, well this is the voice of reason telling you not to do that anymore. Skipping breakfast has been said to cause diseases like stroke and cause high blood pressure. Both are problems that we do not want to deal with. There is an easy fix. do not skip breakfast.

3. Chewing Gum: I know right! How can chewing gum possibly hurt the brain? Well, we cannot argue with science. It is known that chewing gum helps to reduce stress but this does not go without costing you something. Excessively chewing gum is a habit that leads to short term memory. A study was carried out and it was observed that the people who had more difficulty remembering a list of words were the ones chewing gum.

4. Too much sugar: You need to tone it down on the sugar intake if you want your brain to function at its fullest capacity. Excessive sugar intake can mess with the absorption of nutrients in the body and this can lead to malnutrition. Malnutrition means that the brain will not receive the right amount of nutrients it needs to function and this means slower responses.

5. Too little water : Now you might want to cut down on those sweets and increase your water intake for all the good reasons. This may sound funny but not taking enough water leads to dehydration and when you are dehydrated, your brain tissues begin to shrink. It sounds bad enough already. This reduces the functionality of your brain cells and can also cause slower responses.
