It is so funny that “the one organ in our body that thinks is often the one we think less about.
The brain is an incredibly important body part, as it is one of the biggest one in the body and represents the main control center. It has multiple functions, responsibilities, and tasks, as well as lots of information stored”.
The brain is the most important organ in the body and it is high time we all start pay more attention to its health and welfare.
Below are some habits that harm the brain you might not be aware of:
Not sleeping well, lack of sleep is an habit that significantly hurt your brain. “It affects the hippo-campus which causes a deficit that automatically leads to forgetfulness”.
“Alone time can be great for thinking, reflection and mapping out your dreams and goals but when the solitude is too much it can damage the mind and body, it can typically cause brain decline, affect the quality and efficiency of sleep making it less restorative, erode arteries, create high blood pressure, undermine learning and memory and generally take a toll on health; although, most of these effects are gradual and experienced over the course of time”.
Eating too much junk food affects the part of brain that is linked to learning, memory and mental health.
“Playing loud music with earphones or headphones, placing the volume of your earphone or headphone at full volume can permanently damage your hearing, it can also cause brain problems involving loss of memory or inability to remember things easily, and loss of brain tissue in your later years, this is most likely because the brain has to work so hard to understand what’s being said around you that it can hardly store what you’ve heard into your memory”.
Because the body was made to move and the longer you remain unmoving and inactive it becomes more likely you are going to suffer from diseases like diabetes, heart diseases, stroke, dementia and high blood pressure which can all negatively affect the brain in the long run. “You don’t have to start high intensity workouts or start running marathons, just take a walk around your house more often or engage in an activity that gets you moving”.
Apart causing lung problems, smoking can also shrinks the brain, it makes the memory worse, makes one more forgetful and leads to problems like heart disease, dementia, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, lung cancer etc.
Overeating can lead to obesity which has been linked to different brain problems.
Staying indoor or in the dark for a long period, for better brain health it is important to expose yourself to natural light as often as you can as this will help prevent depression and keep your brain working well. “Staying in the dark or without natural light for prolonged periods, can slow your brain and cause a decline in the brain”.
