Women undergo many physical changes, internal and external as well. However, several problems are self-created by women, which can be harmful to their overall health
In today's time, women are equally busy, be it at home or in their professional front. They not just have a career but also have to give equal attention to their family's health and wellbeing needs. Being busy, most women are not conscious of their health. The ignorance of their health leads to many health-related problems. Apart from this, women also make mistakes due to being busy, which can be dangerous for their overall health. However, these mistakes do not occur intentionally, but inadvertently. By making some changes in their lifestyle, women can avoid these mistakes, which prove beneficial for their health.
We often see women skipping meals while managing their kids at home or missing that important meal of the deal to get the kids ready for school. Here are a few common mistakes that women make, which can have a long-lasting effect on their overall health:
Wearing the wrong bra size
Most of the women do not know that the bra they are wearing is of the wrong size. Either the straps would be too tight, or there would be an extra bulge at the back, or the cup size won't be appropriate. However, wearing the wrong-sized bra can harm health. It not just gives the wrong support to your breasts but dramatically increases the risk of breast cancer in several cases.
Sleeping With Makeup On
It is common for women to sleep with makeup on. However, this can be extremely toxic for the skin as makeup on your skin lead to several skin woes. Pimples, acne, discolouration, fine lines, black spots, pigmentation are some of the everyday skin worries that can occur due to makeup usage. Also, not removing makeup before sleeping means having a layer on your face, enabling your skin to breathe. Always remove makeup before sleeping.
Wearing heels is often harmful to the health of your feet because it puts pressure on your joints. Due to this, many problems like back pain, arthritis can occur. Besides, it also damages the bones. One should avoid wearing heels as much as possible, especially when one has to stand or walk for a longer duration.
Sleep is the most crucial aspect of good health. Inadequate sleep causes fatigue and increases negative thoughts in your mind. Also, insufficient sleep increases the risk of blood pressure and heart diseases. One should get at least 6-7 hours of sleep every day.
To Ignore Stress
Women often ignore headaches, insomnia and stress problems. Stress negatively affects their health and promotes many health problems. Try to take less stress or ignore it. Taking stress not just harms your mental health but also shows different signs on the body, which should be addressed immediately.
Lack Of Exercise
It is common among homemakers or new mothers and even working women to ignore exercising owing to time constraints. However, a sedentary lifestyle is a gateway to several lifestyle-related diseases. Lack of physical activity leads to problems such as back pain, stroke, diabetes, and heart disease. In this regard, practice cycling, swimming, dance or yoga.
