Good habits benefit all the life, while bad habits harm health day after day. Recently, the US “MSN health network” wrote an article pointing out that bad habits such as biting your nails, not eating breakfast on time, and always watching TV are not only bad for your health, but may even shorten your life by 10 years in the long run.
According to the report of the US Centers for Disease Control and prevention, 35% of adults sleep less than 7 hours on average. Guo jueheng, director of the sleep and breathing center of Beijing Chaoyang Hospital Affiliated to Capital Medical University, said that 38% of people in China suffer from various sleep disorders. At present, there are 89 diseases related to sleep disorders, such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, heart failure, hypertension, depression, obesity, etc. A study by Harvard Medical School in the United States shows that people who sleep less than 5 hours or more every night will have a significantly reduced life expectancy.
snacks don’t leave your mouth.
Some people like to eat melon seeds, biscuits and chips, and never let their mouths idle. Eating snacks can really make people feel happy. To a certain extent, it can reduce stress and eliminate tension, anxiety and other emotions. However, if you eat snacks when you are not hungry, you will eat less for dinner, resulting in insufficient access to protein, vitamins, trace elements and other nutrients. Moreover, snacks are mostly high in salt, sugar and fat, which may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Therefore, when you want to eat snacks, first ask yourself whether you are hungry or not. If you are not hungry, you should resolutely stop, lock up the snacks or distribute them to your friends.
eat too fast
With the rapid pace of society, people have to “speed up” their eating. If you eat too fast, the brain has no time to send a signal to secrete digestive juice, and the gastrointestinal tract does not have enough reaction time to accelerate peristalsis, it is likely to lead to indigestion, and even abdominal pain, abdominal distension and other symptoms. Over time, this bad habit may also lead to overeating and weight gain. Therefore, when eating, pay attention to the rhythm and chew carefully every mouthful.
always neglects breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but lack of time, appetite, weight control and other reasons can always be an excuse for people not to eat breakfast. Skipping breakfast may cause gastritis, obesity, gallstones and other health problems. Research by Erlangen University in Germany shows that people who do not pay attention to breakfast will shorten their average life by 2.5 years. A study by umeo University in Sweden found that teenagers who do not eat breakfast are more likely to suffer from metabolic syndrome when they grow up, and increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Therefore, it is very important to eat breakfast on time. For a high-quality breakfast, the nutrition matching should be “four haves and two nots”, that is, there are starch staples; There are milk, eggs and beans rich in protein; There are fruits and vegetables; I have a spoonful of nuts; Don’t fry food; Do not barbecue or smoke products.
I always like watching TV.
The survey found that the average American adult watches more than 20 hours of television a week. Often sitting in front of the TV will greatly increase the risk of lumbar disease, heart disease, diabetes and other diseases. Because you sleep in the sofa after dinner, your heat can’t be burned, you are easy to get fat, and reduce your endurance and brain activity. Even if you take part in exercise regularly, you can’t make up for the negative impact of sitting still for a long time on your health. Sitting for more than 3 hours a day may shorten your life by 2 years. Zhou Yingchun, chief physician of the Department of traditional Chinese medicine of the Southern Hospital of Southern Medical University, suggested that every hour you watch TV, you should get up and do some activities, such as doing housework.
I love biting my nails
Nail biting sometimes reflects a kind of psychological emotion, such as tension, depression, depression, inferiority complex, hostility and other emotional states. Its root may be insufficient attention or lack of security. Research has found that even if you wash your hands several times a day with antibacterial hand sanitizer, it is difficult to avoid bacterial invasion. If you are used to biting your nails, you are opening the door to bacteria. In addition, biting nails may break the skin, leading to inflammation such as onychomycosis. It can also cause problems with teeth or gums over a long period of time.
These insignificant habits will also lead to hidden dangers day after day. Change these bad habits so that you don’t lose your life.
