Damaging Mental Health Habits

Damaging Mental Health Habits

Damaging Mental Health Habits:

  1. No Breakfast
    People who don’t eat breakfast have lower blood sugar levels. This can lead to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain (and to underperform in terms of thinking, processing, retrieval and memory skills).
  2. Overreacting
    This can flood the brain with chemical which interferes with clear thinking, logical analysis and memory.
  3. Smoking
    This can cause a shrinkage in the brain, and possibly lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
  4. High Sugar Consumption
    Consuming too much sugar interferes with the absorption of proteins and nutrients. These are essential for healthy brain development.
  5. Air Pollution
    The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain. Again, this can reduce and interfere with the brain’s healthy functioning.
  6. Sleep Deprivation
    Sleep allows our brain to rest and rejuvenate itself. Long term sleep deprivation accelerates the death of brain cells. It interferes with putting down new memory traces, effective problem solving and memory retention.
  7. Exercising your brain in times of illness
    Working or studying during times of sickness can lead to an ineffective thinking, poor processing, and to poor memory and retention.
  8. Lack of Stimulation
    Thinking is the best way to train our brain. Lack of stimulation can prevent new neural pathways from forming. It can also prevent us from reaching our potential in terms of creative thinking and analytical thinking.
