Everyday Habits That Are Slowly Killing You

Not Drinking Enough Water

Sugary drinks and coffee might seem more appealing, but relying on these instead of water can cause dehydration. Water makes up 60% of our body weight and is crucial for nearly every body function.

Poor Dental Hygiene

Neglecting dental care can lead to a domino effect of dental problems. Poor dental hygiene can lead to plaque, a sticky film teeming with bacteria that builds on the teeth, and, if left untreated, can lead to gum recession, bone loss, and even teeth loss.

Overworking

Many people wear the badge of “being busy” with pride. They hustle, juggle, and power through long hours, often sacrificing their sleep, breaks, and personal time for money and productivity.

Smoking

Smoking deserves the top spot on the list because it is not just a bad habit but a conscious decision to expose oneself to harmful chemicals

Excessive Alcohol Consumption

Excessive alcohol consumption goes way past enjoying a drink with friends and more about consistently exceeding the recommended daily limits.

The mind is the control center for your entire body. Leaving mental health unchecked can have serious consequences

Poor Hand Hygiene

Our hands are like germ magnets as we touch surfaces all day long. In this process, we pick up many bacteria and viruses

Unhealthy Eating Patterns
