(MARINA WILDT, LONGEVITY) Your brain is the ultimate tool for survival and success, so knowing how to look after it is vital. These unhealthy habits harm your brain more than you think:
Spending Too Much Time In Your Own Thoughts
Loneliness is not only unhealthy for your emotional being, but for your physical state as well.
So stop inviting friends on Facebook and start inviting them for coffee.
Eating Too Much Junk Food… Or Eating Too Much At All
Certain foods can help boost your functionality, and some that will weaken it. Fast food has minimal nutrients and can weaken your mental health, memory and diligence.
Eating too much junk food can also contribute to weight gain, which can also harm your brain.
Getting Too Familiar With The Couch
Relaxing and taking some time to unwind on the couch can be very good for you … but not all the time.
Sitting down all day, or doing little to no exercise can immediately put you at a high risk of dementia. If that isn’t enough, this unhealthy habit can also increase your chances of Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes and other lifestyle diseases.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to go out for a light, Mediterranean lunch with your friends and family – and make sure to walk the dog before dinner! READ THE FULL POST AT LONGEVITYLIVE.COM Also of interest: Surprising New Reason to Go Mediterranean
