6 Ways You Could Be Endangering Your Health

Health they say is wealth. Unfortunately, many people treat their health status as unimportant. There are some day-day mistakes/acts you engage in that could actually be detrimental to your health.

Treating your health as a basic necessity makes you totally fit. Below are some ways you could endanger your health.

1. Poor Eating Habit:
This is one aspect people tend to ignore. When you eat right, your health feels right. Fruits, vegetables are important part of healthy living. You don't necessarily have to eat heavy meals or even complete the three square meal, but it is necessary to have a complete balanced diet. When poor eating habit lingers on for long, it affects your mental and physical being. Excess fat is not right for the body. Try to eat less, avoid oversize portions, and replace sugary drinks with water. So many people are unnecessarily overweight.

2. Little or no exercise:
The importance of exercise can never be overlooked. so many people are guilty of it, especially those in office environments. It does not take much of your time when you stretch your hands and legs. Sitting on the same spot for long hours could later lead to stroke, fat accumulation and so on. Even if you don't have an office job, take out time to walk round the house, register at a gym center just to keep fit.

3. Excessive thinking:
It is not a big deal when you think and have time alone,it becomes an issue when you do it often. Excessive thinking could lead to depression if not checked. “Those likely to internalize stress are in greater danger; research has shown a benefit to laughter and social support,” Dr. Reynolds says. It is good to be in control of your thoughts, before they have a troll on you.

4. Reckless Lifestyle:
This is also way people, especially youths endanger themselves. Excess alcohol is linked to a greater risk of high blood pressure, high levels of blood fats, and heart failure. In addition, the extra calories can lead to weight gain, a threat to heart health. Smoking, extra loud music, keeping a sad face constantly is unhealthy and also a way of endangering your health.

5. Isolation from the world:
So many people like to act like sadist. They shut down the world an create like a barrier between themselves and those around them. The importance of always having someone to talk to is deep. People with stronger connections to family, friends, and society in general tend to live longer, healthier lives. They hardly have many things to worry about, everything just feels perfect. Everyone needs alone time, but you should still reach out to others and keep in touch whenever you can.

6. Stiffness:
Truth is, we have our days when everything feels not so right, when worries takes a great part of our lives, but we shouldn't let this completely affect us. Some people take life so seriously and hardly find time to relax and chill. It doesn't hurt to visit friends, share the word of God, get involved in meaningful activities.
