Top Ten Brain-Damaging Habits

We have so many mannerisms and habits. We often think that doing them makes us feel at ease. However, what we don’t know is that these habits may cause internal destruction like brain damage.
Well, for you to know if your habits are still healthy, here’s a list of the things usually done that might inflict damage to your brain…

1. Skipping Breakfast or No Breakfast at all
People who do not take breakfast usually got a lower blood sugar level. That’s bad. It leads to an insufficient of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration. Also, skipping breakfast means no supply of carbohydrates and carbohydrates are very important in producing the energy you need for the rest of the day.

2. Over eatingover eating (photo from internet)
It’s fun to eat much especially if the foods before you are your favorites. However, eating too much got some disadvantages too. Over eating causes the hardening of the brain arteries which leads to a decrease in mental power. That’s why you might notice that you can’t concentrate well on a puzzle if you have eaten more than the usual.

3. Smoking
Yup. It does not only damage the lungs but also the brain. The nicotine in cigarettes also contain some substances that causes multiple brain shrinkage. If this will continue, you might even get an Alzheimer’s disease.

4. High sugar consumption
Too much of everything is bad. Having a high sugar count interrupts the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition. This may also interfere in the brain development. Thus, it is not advisable, especially for children to indulge in sweets.

5. Exposure in air pollution
This is not actually a habit since we are always exposed to pollution. Yet, it is listed here because it is one the main causes of brain damage. it is a fact that the brain is one of the major oxygen consumers in the body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Lack of sleep or Sleep deprivation
Sleep is very essential. it allows our brain to rest from all the hard work it has done. Long term deprivation from sleep accelerates the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping
Believe me, this is unhealthy too. Sleeping with your head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decreases the concentration of oxygen which leads to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illnesssick at work (photo from internet)
This is very common to students and professionals alike. Going to school or office while sick and doing lots of brain work. Do you know that working hard or studying while sick leads to a decrease of brain effctiveness and also brings brain damage? Well, now you know ;)

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain. having smart conversations or writing some essays is very healthy. Talking non-sense things is definitely not. It is best to always have brain stimulating thoughts to avoid brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely
There’s nothing bad in being talkative, it is actually healthy. Intellectual conversations promote the efficiency of the brain.
Now you are aware of those brain damaging habits. You can already avoid the ones you got that are not healthy. :)
