Four Health Mistakes That You Should Rectify

Update Date: Nov 02, 2014 06:55 PM EST

Unhealthy habits are quite common, but it's never too late to get rid of them. 

Here are few health mistakes that you should get rid of as soon as possible: 

Sunscreen 

Not applying sunscreen is a huge mistake. Exposure from harmful sun rays don't immediately show its effect, instead, gradually you might notice the appearance of wrinkle s and fine lines. 

Apply a moisturizer that contains antioxidants like vitamin A, C and E. The ingredients also hydrate our skin, making it healthy. 

Incorrect postures

We don't pay much attention to the way we walk, sit and stand. Experts suggest to avoid slouching while sitting, hunching while standing and dragging your feet while walking. Correct postures will make sure that you don't suffer from backache and poor balance as you age. 

Yoga is an excellent way to improve your posture. 

Binge drinking

Binge drinking is as harmful as regular drinking because of the detrimental effect on liver is the same. 

Saying no to exercise

It's a natural tendency to procrastinate exercising. But now is the time that you start making time for exercise. 

According to studies, siting for long periods increases risk for heart disease and diabetes. 

You can start with moderate exercise - 20 minutes a week and then gradually increase the pace. Staying active will ensure good health (obviously).
