Published on 6-08-2016 - at 01:37' by Elcrema

There are certain things you do everyday that could be damaging your brain gradually.

1. NOT EATING IN THE MORNING

Not eating in the morning isn’t good for the brain because it deprives your brain of nutrients it needs.

2. WORKING WHILE YOU ARE SICK

When you are sick, it is advisable you get enough rest because the brain overwork itself if you work while you are sick.

3.NOT USING YOUR BRAIN

Lack of use makes the brain dull. When you don’t put your brain to use by thinking, you can gradually become dumber.

4. SMOKING

Smoking isn’t good for the brain because according to a study by McGill University, smoking causes thinning of the cortex over time.

5. NOT DRINKING ENOUGH WATER

Not drinking enough water isn’t good for the brain because dehydration causes cells in the brain to shrink.

6. OVEREATING

Eating too much isn’t good for the brain. When you eat too much, you confuse the brain and this could cause an imbalance in insulin production. The imbalance in insulin production can cause hardening of arteries which leads to a decrease in mental function over time.

7. INADEQUATE SLEEP

You should ensure you get adequate sleep regularly because a lack of sleep slows down the brain.

8. STRESS

Stress isn’t good for the brain. When you are stressed, cortisol is produced which can kill the brain cells if produced in excess.

9. EXCESS SUGAR

Excess sugar consumption isn’t good for the brain as it weakens your memory and learning capabilities.
