5 Daily Activites Damaging Your Mental Health

We usually think stress is the root cause of our bad mental health. Surprisingly according to a research project, our daily routine has a huge impact on our mind. Our small habit adds more stress to our mental health.

Let’s adapt Self-discipline and better habits today to better our mental health

1. No Breakfast – People who don’t eat breakfast have lower blood sugar levels. This can lead to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain (and to underperformance in terms of thinking, processing, retrieval and memory skills).

2. Overreacting – This can flood the brain with chemical which interferes with clear thinking, logical analysis and memory.

3. Smoking And Consuming Alcohol – This can cause a shrinkage in the brain, and possibly lead to Alzheimer’s disease.

4. High Sugar Consumption – Consuming too much sugar interferes with the absorption of proteins and nutrients. These are essential for healthy brain development. 5. Air Pollution – The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body.


5. Sleep Deprivation – Sleep allows our brain to rest and rejuvenate itself. Long term sleep deprivation accelerates the death of brain cells. It interferes with putting down new memory traces, effective problem solving and memory retention.

6. Breathing Exercise – Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain. Again, this can reduce and interfere with the brain’s healthy functioning. We are already in the era of mask so do some breathing exercises every day.

The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.
