When it comes to health, we often focus on obvious things like diet and exercise. However, there are many other factors that can impact our health that people don’t talk about enough. In this listicle, we’ll explore some of the things that are bad for your health that people don’t talk about enough.
“Stress. More specifically, chronic stress. A few years of chronic stress messed up my health more than anything I’ve done. I developed a chronic pain condition and an autoimmune disease, as well as permanent anhedonia all of which have lasted years now.”
Lack of Sleep
“Not getting enough sleep. Some people even boast about only needing a few hours a night, but that could be very damaging in the long term.”
“Backflips are dangerous af but no one talks about it cuz they’re dope.”
“Grind culture. We need rest, hobbies, and socialization outside of work.”
“Sitting down all day. For 15 years, I spent 90% of my day on my feet. The last 3 years I only spend about 10% on my feet. I have more body aches now than ever before.”
Another person said, “I had a manual labor job for most of my life. Tore both planter fascia in my feet and changed to an office job. Immediately put on 30 lbs in 6 months. I even eat way less than I used to and still am gaining weight because I sit for 9 hours a day at work. Stationary life takes a toll.”
“A loud environment. I’ve been working in bars/clubs for the past 10 years and I wear ear protection every night now. It’s gonna save my life down the road.”
“Doomscrolling, or reading an endless amount of negative news online. Your mental health is not going to improve if you force yourself to look at ceaseless pain, and when your mental health deteriorates too much or too fast, it impacts your ability to care for your physical health.”
“Chronic hatred. I have someone who works for me who is consumed by this. I took over as her boss about a year ago. Probably once a week minimum I hear something about her ex husband. She is constantly talking about her divorce, unpaid child support, unpaid spousal support, etc. About 6 months in to knowing her she said something about child support ending that caused me to ask “When did you get divorced?” She responded with, “Seventeen years ago.” I was stunned. The whole time I had known her I thought the divorce had just happened. The longest I thought was 3 years. In reality it was closing in on 2 decades. She is about to turn 40. She looks older than my wife who is 57. Hate has aged her like you wouldn’t believe.”
“Not washing your thrift finds before you wear them. New clothes, too. There can be chemicals and dye present that get absorbed into your skin.”
Adopting New Pets
Not washing newly adopted pets. “My first adoption was the best dog ever, but we didn’t wash her so we also adopted fleas.”
Constant News Consumption
“Mentally speaking, constantly watching the news. All there is is negativity. I personally try to stay away from news, whether it be local or national as all it does is upset me.”
Beige Food Diet
“The beige food diet. No green. No color other than shades of brown. Just carbs and meat, or meat and carbs. Corn as a ‘vegetable.'”
