There is a close relationship between living habits and health. Good living habits can build a healthy body. Many people are used to taking a walk outdoors after a full meal. The good name is “walk a hundred steps after a meal, and live to 99”. However, some experts say that it is inappropriate to move around immediately after meals, which will affect digestion in particular. Therefore, we should pay attention to the living habits after meals, and don’t delay our health.
after every meal, we should avoid these habits, so that we can be healthier:
“Hundred steps” after meals will affect the absorption of nutrients by the digestive tract due to the increase of exercise. Especially for the elderly, heart function decreases, blood vessels harden, and blood pressure drops often occur in walking after meals. In fact, “after dinner” does not mean to take a walk immediately after eating, but to rest for at least 10 minutes. If you eat too much, you need to extend the rest time appropriately, and you can’t do vigorous exercise within half an hour after eating.
2. Eat fruit
After meals, especially after eating greasy food, eating fruit immediately will not help eliminate greasiness and clear the intestines and stomach, but will increase the burden of the intestines and stomach, affect digestive function, and lead to indigestion. If you want to eat fruit, you should eat it 1-2 hours after dinner.
After satiety, a person’s stomach volume increases, the stomach wall becomes thinner, and the blood flow increases. At this time, singing will move the diaphragm downward and increase the abdominal pressure. It may cause indigestion, or gastrointestinal discomfort and other diseases. Therefore, we should stop karaoke after dinner.
After meals, the intestines and stomach of the human body move very frequently. At this time, smoking is easy to absorb a large number of harmful components in cigarettes, which has a strong stimulating effect on the respiratory and digestive tract. Therefore, smoking after meals is much more harmful than smoking at ordinary times, and should be avoided as far as possible.
After taking a bath after dinner, the blood flow on the body surface will increase, and the blood flow of the gastrointestinal tract will decrease accordingly, which will weaken the digestive function of the intestines and stomach and cause indigestion. Therefore, it is recommended to take a bath about 1 hour after dinner, and the bath time should not exceed half an hour.
6. Brushing teeth
Just after eating, the enamel on the teeth is abraded by food, and some sour substances may remain in the mouth. At this time, if you brush your teeth immediately, it will be easy to brush off this layer of enamel that protects your teeth. Therefore, it is better not to brush your teeth just after eating. If you want to keep your mouth clean, rinse your mouth with water and brush your teeth after one or two hours.
7. Sex life
For men, during sex, the penis needs extensive congestion to maintain a firm and lasting erection, which requires the cooperation of multiple organs and consumes a lot of physical strength. If you have sex immediately after a full meal, there will be problems with the blood supply to the penis. After eating a full meal, the gastrointestinal tract needs energy to digest and absorb food, and the blood supply of the gastrointestinal tract increases, while the blood supply of other parts of the body decreases correspondingly, and the penis erection hardness is not enough. In this case, having sex will make men feel powerless and easily cause damage to the vascular endothelial cells of the penis. In the long run, men will have erectile dysfunction.
