Ordinary Things That Are Bad for You
COMMON HEALTH RISKS
DAILY ACTIVITIES THAT CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS
Even if you make a point to exercise every day and watch your diet, you can still face health risks you may not be aware of. Common daily activities can cause more harm than you’d think. SKINNY JEANS Though stylish, skinny jeans can create more problems than they’re worth. They can cause muscle damage and blood restriction when worn regularly for long periods of time. In fact, wearing any tightly fitted article of clothing frequently can lead to the same effects. To avoid these issues, don’t wear tight clothes for long periods of time and refrain from exercising in them. LARGE HANDBAGS Large handbags allow you to carry many items at once, but they can also pose a hazard to your health. According to Dr. Sabrina Strickland, an orthopedic surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, your body counters the weight of a heavy bag hanging from your shoulder by lifting your shoulder or leaning to the side, which curves your spine. This can cause muscle pain in the shoulders, neck, and back, along with joint strain. Decreasing the size of the bag you’re carrying and the weight of your items are great ways to counter this. SITTING IS THE NEW SMOKING This has been a common new health statement to come out of many medical centers. Sitting daily for long periods of time has been proven to increase
health risks, like cardiovascular disease. One of the best methods to counter the effects of sitting is to take regular breaks. Every 30 minutes spent sitting should be coupled with five minutes of physical activity, such as a brisk walk. Even taking a few minutes to stand and stretch is better than sitting still for hours on end.
Don’t let these everyday activities stress your body out too much. Finding that perfect balance can be tough, but the results will pay for themselves!
