Are you living a healthy life? You may work out and avoid toxic substances, but a lot of unhealthy actions can creep up on you. Here are 17 bad things for you that don’t get enough air time.
We always talk about texting while driving or drinking while driving, but driving while you’re tired is just as dangerous.
Some folks love the grind, but humans need a break. We need rest, relaxation, and downtime to explore our hobbies and interests without worrying about monetizing them.
Humans weren’t made to sit still for 8-10 hours a day. We’re made for walking and moving. Our sedentary lifestyles are destroying our health.
Standing in Place
Many office workers switched to stand-up desks to avoid sitting all day, but it’s only slightly better. We’re supposed to be moving.
Americans are constantly stressed out and with good reason. We have little to no job security, can’t afford to live, and see no way out. The constant stress is bad for our overall well-being.
Social media algorithms want us to keep scrolling so they get more eyeballs and more ad revenue. We can’t seem to pull ourselves away from the constant influx of bad news, but it’s not healthy.
All the Hate
American Society runs on hate. The media and our politicians perpetuate it to brainwash folks into doing their bidding, but it has horrific effects on our health and wellness. People can’t be happy if they’re always angry, and it’s detrimental to society.
People are lonelier than ever before, and it’s hurting them. Humans are social creatures; we need a community to thrive. Our isolation has negative impacts on our mental health.
America celebrates rugged individualism, but it’s been held up to such an ideal it has become toxic. We need other people. The idea that we can do everything alone hurts everyone.
We rarely stop to consider all the adverse health effects inherent in poverty. Malnourishment, lack of medical care, chronic stress, and poor mental health are just some ways poverty can impact health.
Poor Air Quality
Is your air safe? Most of us living near major cities constantly breathe in toxic fumes. That can’t be good for our lungs.
How much plastic is coursing through your veins, pretending to be blood? We’re just beginning to grasp how dangerous our overreliance on plastic is for our health.
Having a closed mind is bad for your health. It keeps you stagnating and makes dealing with the realities of life more challenging and, thus, more stressful.
We may love going to concerts, but too much loud noise is horrible for your hearing. You should wear ear protection if continuously exposed to over 85 decibels.
Is your plate ugly? If it’s filled with beige, tan, and white foods, then yes, it is. That hideous diet is terrible for you. We need the essential vitamins and minerals that come with adding a burst of colorful greens, oranges, and blues to our plates.
Ignoring Your Teeth
Proper dental care is crucial for a long, healthy life, but far too many people ignore their teeth. A system that treats dental care like a luxury outside healthcare doesn’t help, but most people don’t even brush and floss right.
Not Dealing with Your Trauma
Increase your health and wellness with a simple, low cost tool: Journaling. But don’t take our word for it.
Refusing To Take Care of Yourself
Self-Care is essential to wellbeing. Try one of these indulgent self care activities when you have a moment of spare time.
Lack of Sleep
Our culture functions on exhaustion. People brag about how little they slept. Getting a good night’s sleep is crucial to your overall health and wellness.
