Living Habits

You Are Damaging Your Head Unknowingly If You Continue Practicing These Habits

To put it bluntly, you spend far too much time on your own.


People are built for community. Having real friends is more important than having a large Facebook friend list. People are happier and more successful when they have even a small network of friends who share their values. They also become less likely to develop dementia like Alzheimer's as they age. If you're feeling lonely, try taking up a new sport or hobby with some friends.

You consume excessive amounts of processed foods.

People who regularly ate fast food like burgers, french fries, potato chips, and soda had smaller brain regions associated with learning, memory, and mental health. Berry, whole grain, nut, and green leafy vegetable consumption has been shown to improve cognitive function and slow the onset of age-related mental decline. Choose a handful of nuts over a bag of chips.

When you put on your headphones, you listen to music.

Listening to headphones at dangerously high volumes, even for 30 minutes, can cause long-term hearing loss. Hearing loss affects more than just your ears; the elderly who experience it are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease. You may forget what you've heard because your mind is working so hard to understand what other people are saying. Keep the volume at no more than 60% of its maximum level and listen for no more than two hours at a time.

Too Little Action


Alzheimer's disease is more likely to set in if you don't exercise regularly for a long time. An increase in the incidence of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and high blood pressure may be attributable to the onset of Alzheimer's disease. Doing some light gardening for half an hour or taking a stroll around the block will do the trick. Practising at least three times per week is recommended.

Despite this, you keep lighting up

Medications can reduce brain volume and cause cognitive decline. Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia are more likely to occur in smokers. The severity of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension are all exacerbated.

When you eat too much, you put on weight.

You might not be able to form the robust neural connections necessary for sharp cognition and long-term memory even if you eat healthily. Long-term overeating can lead to unhealthily high weight, which can lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure, all of which have been linked to memory loss and Alzheimer's disease.

Lack of sleep is a problem for you.

We've all committed actions that we later came to regret. The ability to think, however, can be hindered by engaging in negative behaviours. Dementias like Alzheimer's can be exacerbated by sleep deprivation. Sticking to a consistent sleep schedule is highly recommended. Initiate a relaxing nightly routine free of alcohol, caffeine, and electronic devices.
