They are many habit we do everyday that are harming us without we knowing. These are our daily lifestyle we should stop or try to avoid.

1. Using your smartphone before going to sleep.
Well, our bodies at night produce melatonin, a hormone that regulates our sleep and when we wake up. According to research, using artificial light at night suppresses it. The effect is that low melatonin can lead to depression, cancer, heart diseases and a very fragile immune system. So turn off your phone way before you go to sleep.

2. Using synthetic perfume.
In order to get really strong scents, most perfume companies use synthetic materials as they are cheaper than natural oils. Have you wondered why you are warned not to spray perfume in your eye? Well, the synthetic materials can irritate your eyes and skin, and cause nausea and dizziness. You are better off using essential oils instead.

3. Brushing your teeth after eating.
According to Dentist, it is best to brush your teeth at least 60 minutes after eating. That is because high acidic foods can affect the enamel of your tooth as well as the layer underneath it. During brushing, the movement of your toothbrush pushed the acid close to the layer below your enamel.

4. Wearing skinny/tight jeans.
I know these are latest trends in town but know that the constant press on your skin can cause discomfort that can lead serious nervous system issues. There’s a reduction in air flow to your legs and this causes tingling and itching that can make your legs numb.

5. Drinking freshly squeezed juice.
Juicing is the order of the day, and yes, freshly squeezed juice is good for you but only in small quantities. There are instances where juice can very harmful to your body. For instance, grape juice is not recommended for those with diabetes.

6. Stopping yourself from sneezing.
When we close our mouths and pinch our noses in an effort to prevent a sneeze, our intracranial pressure increases significantly. The blood flow to our brains is disrupted, and our blood vessels and nervous tissue are compressed. This can lead to headaches, damage to vessels, and even hearing problems. Never stop yourself from sneezing.

7. Keep foods in plastic containers.
Many plastic boxes contain artificial chemical substances, such as phthalate and bisphenol, that help to maintain their flexibility. If kept for a long time in plastic boxes, such substances can creep into the food. It’s a much better idea to store food in containers made from glass, stainless steel, or ceramic material.

So we should try our best to avoid these things.

Wearing skinny jeans is harmful because of blood flow and air flow too, if they are too tight blood can run easily and it will harm you. If air can run "freely" you can even get an infection in your urinaty tract or a twisted testicle!
Also another habit I will add is smoking! please quick smoking right away if you do this. Not exercising can't be a really bad habit too.

Great and very useful tips. Thanks for sharing them with us.

I would add the list "Don't consume excess alcohol." and "No smoking.". I think these two types of attitudes (which can easily become dangerous addictions) should be avoided at all costs. Particularly speaking, I hate the smell / taste of it.

Life certainly gets so much better without them.

I didn't know that brushing your teeth after we are eating can harm us, this is really new to me. There are many things that we should avoid, but there is no time for it, no other alternative to use, and sometimes we are so tired that we stop caring!
