The most dangerous habits of a “healthy lifestyle”

Every time we turn on the TV, a flow of information that is “healthy” to our health falls upon us. Talk shows, broadcasts, documentaries, all this calls to take up their health, but quite often the information in those or other resources contradicts itself. One source claims that a glass of red wine per day is useful, while another claims that it doubles your chances of developing diabetes, one program claims that eggs are good for health, while another states that they are the embodiment of evil . So who to believe?
Unfortunately, there are many controversial topics in the world about the benefits or harms of certain products. One way or another, but first of all it is best to consult with your doctor and adhere to the lifestyle that you think is most comfortable. Nevertheless, there are a number of general rules that are suitable for everyone, and today we will acquaint you with them.
Are you still sleeping without removing your contact lenses?
The most dangerous habits of a “healthy lifestyle”
Admit it, for sure you have had situations when for one reason or another you did not remove contact lenses for the night. It happens, but for some people too often. So what’s wrong with that? According to doctors, sleep in contact lenses can lead to far more serious consequences than dry eye syndrome: for example, infectious inflammation of the cornea, which can even lead to complete loss of vision. In addition, sleep in contact lenses makes you more susceptible to giant papillary conjunctivitis, which provokes the occurrence of an allergy to contact lenses.
How to avoid it? Always try to wash your hands before you put or remove contact lenses from your eyes, change the solution for storing contact lenses daily, every time you remove the lenses from your eyes before going to bed and have a regular examination by an ophthalmologist.
Still moving a little?
The most dangerous habits of a “healthy lifestyle”
Many people think that 30 minutes of exercise per day will be enough to maintain health. But it’s not always the case. Many office workers spend eight to ten hours a day in a sitting position, and sometimes even more. Studies have shown that even with regular physical exertion such a long stay in a sitting position increases the risk of heart attack or stroke, since sitting in place for an extended period of time affects the blood content of fats and sugars.
How to avoid it? For a more active pastime, you do not have to change jobs, it’s enough to change your train of thought. Get up from the table as often as possible, take breaks, go up and down the stairs. If you work at home, then consider buying a treadmill or exercise bike. Remember that any kind of movement is better than no movement.
Still not updated your sporty wardrobe?
The most dangerous habits of a “healthy lifestyle”
Do you think that going to the gym is half the battle? This is true, but if you do not promptly update your equipment and clothing. Worn clothes can cause a lot of stress for your body: old T-shirts can rub, socks can cause painful blisters, and worn sneakers can lead to the fact that in the future you will not be able to play sports at all.
What to do? Treat yourself to new workout clothes, take care of the availability of sportswear for each of the seasons. Before you buy, make sure you get breathable shoes and socks. And do not wait until your sneakers look worn. They should generally be changed every 300-500 miles or every 6-9 months.
Still roasting in the sun?

We hope that at the moment you have forgotten about tanning beds, because you already know how dangerous direct UV rays can be. However, many people still allow themselves to appear under the scorching sun without proper protection. And if the danger of cancer does not seem so serious to you, let your pride go. Exposure to ultraviolet rays is known to damage the DNA of your skin, resulting in freckles, age spots, wrinkles and loose skin.
How to avoid it? You don’t have to completely avoid the sun, just learn how to protect your skin from its harmful effects. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using SPF15 sunscreen that protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays 20-30 minutes before you go out. This procedure should be repeated every two hours in the open sun. If you spend a long time in direct sunlight, get a hat with a wide brim or umbrella.
Still not getting enough sleep?
