10 Bad Habits that Damage Your Brain

Do you want your brain to stop working? No? Then avoid these 10 bad habits to keep your brain running smoothly. You can thank me later bros. 🙂

1. No Breakfast

no breakfast
People who do not eat breakfast generally have lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain which eventually causes brain degeneration.

2. Overeating

Overeating causes hardening of the brain arteries, thus leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking

This unhealthy act causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer’s disease.

4. High Sugar Consumption

Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution

air pollution
This is not a habit but it is a common problem nowadays. The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen in the grain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation

sleep deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells. Get enough sleep, around 6 to 8 hours a day would do the trick.

7. Head Covered while Sleeping

Sleeping with the head covered (either by a pillow or your blanket) increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working Your Brain During Illness

Working hard or studying while you are sick may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lack of Stimulating Thoughts

Thinking is the best way to train our brain. The lack of brain stimulating thoughts may cause the brain to shrink.

10. Talking Rarely

Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain. The lack thereof will lead to the opposite. Don’t shy away from talking with others.
