Since our childhood, our parents had taught us so many good habits. But after growing up when I asked one of my friend who is a doctor by profession, he told that most of those good habits are not that good. They have many negative impacts on our health. So, today we will discuss those myths about those good habits.
Drinking more than 8 glasses of water daily
Research has proven that it’s more beneficial to drink water only when you are thirsty. Excess intake of water can often result in obesity, bloating, problems in digestion and skin problems.
Drinking only bottled water
Be it in a restaurant or while traveling, we reach out for the bottle of mineral water. Guess what? Bottled water isn’t that healthy. It does not contain fluoride and deficiency of fluoride can cause tooth decay. You can drink water from a purifier.
Make up for sleep on weekends
By following this strategy you will end up disturbing your sleep pattern and cause a huge risk to your health. Ideally, aim for 7 to 8 hours daily.
Brushing teeth after any meal
Do you know that the food particles leave acid on our teeth that weaken the enamel? So, when you brush your teeth after a meal, you are actually scrubbing away the weakened enamel too. Rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash.
Having too many nutrition supplements
Most of us don’t face any major nutritional deficiency, yet consume vitamin tablets which can pose serious health risks. Eat proper food to compensate for any deficiency.
Exercise vigorously, no matter what
While regular physical exercise is effective in the prevention of many health risks like obesity, hypertension, etc, doing excessive exercise can put your heart at risk and cause problems like cardiovascular stress.
So, from now onwards do not make any of these above-mentioned mistakes.
