Mistakes even healthy people make

There are some mistakes that even the most health concerned people can also commit without knowing. Let us have a look at some of these and try to avoid as much as possible.

Too little sleep: Long-term sleep loss is linked to dementia, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. You can also add problems with your immune system, depression and anxiety, and ongoing pain to that list. Talk to your doctor if you have trouble getting enough sleep.

Not drinking water first: Your body sends out signals when you are hungry or thirsty. But it is easy to confuse the two. Both sensations can give you a headache or make you feel tired and dizzy. The next time you feel like snacking, try gulping a glass of water first. Other signs you need more fluid include dry eyes or skin, dry mouth, dark pee, or not peeing very much.

Using a cotton swab in your ear: You may end up pushing wax deeper into the ear canal. And you could puncture your eardrum if the swab goes too far. That can cause hearing loss. Your ear is pretty good at cleaning itself. But it is possible to make more wax than normal. If that happens to you, ask your doctor what to do.

Not checking for drug interactions: Some things can change how your medication works. That includes food, supplements, and other drugs. Some of these interactions can make your medicine less effective or cause unwanted side effects. Always read the warning labels that come with prescription or drugs and ask your doctor.
