There are many things that are harmful to our health, such as spending too many hours at the computer and not exercising enough. But today, people are well aware of what can negatively affect their well-being, whether they do something about it or not.
However, some things can take their toll on a person without them even realizing it. Members of the ‘Ask Reddit’ community recently discussed this topic after a redditor asked them what is something super harmful to one’s health that most people don’t realize. Plenty of netizens have shared their thoughts on the matter, covering everything from shoes to bosses and beyond, so scroll down to find them and see what other surprising things might be more dangerous than you’d think.
Now, of course, we all know that poverty is not good for anyone, but even now, I don’t think we as a society realize how bad it is.
It supports you in many angles related to your health. Bad food, less time to exercise, more stress in life, less money to deal with physical problems, it keeps you stuck in a toxic environment (both mentally and physically).
That’s just a lot of negative compound interest.
Loss of a pet, 100%. It’s definitely not taken as seriously at all as other family losses, and it should be. It can seriously affect your mental and physical health.
Shift. At night, then late, then early. Physiologically so destructive.
I work for emergency services, so 24/7 is necessary. Management is pretty good, but nationally we are poorly paid. Still on the body.
The epidemic of short videos and now almost every popular app/website has them. Watching endless short videos of 10 seconds or less really saps our attention span. Especially for children in the development phase.
He doesn’t sleep enough, he works too much.
No, drinking gallons of coffee won’t lessen the negative effects caused by this, and neither will oversleeping on the weekends.
Constant, chronic stress. It has physical effects that vary from person to person, from chronic insomnia, obesity, heart disease and even death. A person’s ability to adapt and be resilient is impaired. The motto ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’ is wrong and dangerous.
And yet, we all live our lives as if chronic stress is a normal, praiseworthy part of the human condition.
If you sit a lot (such as work at an office or many trips to work or a truck) and keep your wallet in your back pocket, you will screw up your spine.
Constant stimulation from our phones. We get bored easily and it increases the feeling of loneliness. It makes doing things without looking at anything on our phones or being with someone mentally taxing.
Edit: LMFAO every time I get a notification on this thread I check my phone. Hehehe now it’s 3 in the morning where I am hehehe. They’re all fucking doomed.
Painting without a respirator.
We get memorial emails whenever someone in our union dies. EVERY PAINTER DIES AT FORTY OR FIFTY! And yet, none of them are wearing respirators. vtf.
Not doing the things you loved as a child before you dealt with adult responsibilities.
Stress is bad for your brain and many people don’t have healthy ways to release it.
I am not a medical professional and this is not medical advice.
Where are your neck and shoulders right now? Do they lean forward and down? In the long term, this causes a lot of damage and inflammation throughout the neck, shoulders and upper back. If you have to force him to maintain good posture, it is not good posture. Try to strengthen those back muscles. Make them do their job. You’ll know you have good posture when you don’t have to think about it.
Also, for the love of God, most of us are not in pain because we are old. You are in pain because you abused your body for decades before paying attention to the damage it caused. You’re only as old as you feel.
Also, if you have full range of motion, don’t stretch it. If it feels tight and you have full range of motion, it’s not a mobility issue and stretching won’t help it. In fact, if you stretch a joint that is already too mobile, it will cause inflammation. If your wrist has too much range of motion, you need to strengthen it instead.
Also, do you have lower back pain? Try to stretch your hip flexors. They probably tear out your glutes and overload your lower back.
Many people think that bad sewing will cause foot pain, but it can also cause pain in the legs, hips, back, and more.
I was amazed at how good I felt after getting a professional pair of work shoes
Lack of physical activity. In addition to the many physical benefits of exercise, it also does wonders for your mental health and ability to cope with stress.
Cut random things out of your diet when it’s on trend. People are throwing their diets out of balance just by following some Instagram scams.
