Ten Habits That Can Damage Your Brain


– Working when ill

Working when sick is very bad because your body is begging for rest and you should take a break until you recover completely.

You can’t wear a mask all the time of course, and there is not much you can do with this. The brain needs a lot of oxygen and this polluted air deprive us of it. 

– Covered Head While Sleeping

Not sleeping for long periods of time reduces the number of healthy brain cells. Sleeping repairs the whole body from the stress and it regenerates every cell.

– Too much sugar

Reduce your sugar intake if you want to protect your brain. Prevent brain damage by consuming foods high in nutrients but low in sugar.

– Overeating

This makes you gain weight, be obese, damages the stems in the brain and reduces the mental focus.

– Smoking

The worst of all habits. It has many side effects but for the brain, it causes shrinkage and dementia related issues like Alzheimer’s.

– No breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and avoiding it causes blood sugar spikes and irregularities. If you skip breakfasts you deprive your brain of nutients thus causing damage.

– Lack of stimulating thoughts

Having stimulating thoughts opens new pathways in the brain and activates it entirely. Lack of such thoughts leads to brain shrinkage or damage due to inactivity.

– Rarely talking

Talking makes the brain work and activates it. Engage in intellectual talks as much as you can and boost the health of the brain.
