    Are you sure certain habits are good? And to know all the wrong habits that we put in place every day? Check it out with this article!

    Besides sleep little and bad, to smoke, eating too much and disorderly, there are so many bad habits that we continue to carry around for years, without realizing how much impact have on our existence.

    Yes, because if you insist on staying late in the evening, you are not only hurting your health: it also affects your productivity and the possibility of maintaining good human relationships.

    We even have some of these ways of doing things loyal believing they are good behaviors.

    So let's see together what are these dysfunctional habits that you they steal energy and slow down your personal growth and why you should get rid of them.

    Let's start with the most important ones.

    Wrong habits for your health

    An excessive sedentary lifestyle, the subscription to the junk food and excessive and continuous use of technological devices are among the most well-known bad health habits.

    But even if you find yourself doing these things often, you should stay on top of it.

    1. Overdo physical activity

    Well, GetPersonalGrowth, but then you don't know what to do! First you tell me that you have to move and then you come out with this thing that you don't have to do too much.

    Yep, that's right. Beneficial physical activity is the one that makes you feel good and restores you, not the one that tires you even more than before and that wears out your body. If after a workout you get to have dizziness, nausea and legs what is they tremble, there is something wrong. I highly recommend that you review your activity plan before taking any risks to your health.

    2. Doing only one type of sport

    Our body needs different types of stresses. If you only train a specific skill (like force or the resistance) you could suffer the effects of an unbalanced exercise or, in the most extreme cases, run into accidents. Remember to include in your training some activities that develop your strength, your endurance, but also yourelasticity,equilibrium and coordination. If in doubt, leave the DIY alone and consult an expert.

    3. Don't give yourself recovery periods

    Our physique needs to rhythm, between wakefulness and sleep and also between one activity and another or after sport. Don't skip breaks thinking you don't have time or don't need it - those minutes of rest make sure you metabolizzi the results of the activity, maintaining balance in your body system. Always take care of your rest, both after the single workout, and within your week. And if you can't sleep as much as you would like during this period, at least take care of the quality of your sleep (this article talks about how you can improve it, in special cases).

    4. Eating on the wave of emotions

    How many times do we eat from tiredness, nervousness, dissatisfaction, anger, or even excitement, joy, satisfaction or camaraderie? Whether they are negative or positive emotions, the fact is that the emotional sphere should not interfere so much with our nutrition. Train in rediscover the dear old man feeling of hunger.

    5. Take a nice hot shower

    Using water that is too hot is bad for i blood vessels that irrigate your brain (so if you suffer from migraines, it is easy for a nice hot shower to make it worse). Also due to the same dilating effect of the vessels, boiling water after physical activity can make you feel very weak, provoking you malaise. Also, it alters the hydrolipidic film of the skin making it more susceptible to infections.

    6. Do not clean earphones, keyboard and smartphone

    Some recent scientific research has pointed to smartphones, computer keyboards, and earphones among the items dirtier - and insidious because, not thinking that they are, we often use them even while we eat - with which we can deal every day. A good rule of thumb is to clean them regularly and to store the earbuds in a little more decent places than the mysterious bottom of the backpack.

    7. Bask in the sun

    The sun is good for: mood, immunity, health. But surely when the experts talk about it they don't mean the practice of beaching on the sunbed in the peak hours, in July, with the aim of becoming a double of Carlo Conti. Maybe you know: get burned it is frequently one of the causes of cancer to the skin. It is much better, and it is also much more pleasant, to sunbathe daily, in all months of the year, by doing simple physical activity outdoors.

    8. Remain seated in the same position for hours

    It hurts ours circulation, in the back and also in the creativeness - because our thoughts also stagnate. Get up at least once an hour and, if possible, change your workplace or work room.

    9. Get plenty of liquid calories

    Calories are so called fruit juices, centrifuges, sodas energy which consist of rapidly absorbed sugars, immediately go into circulation in our body, but, lacking other types of nutrients and fibers, they do not interfere with our sense of hunger. The result is that we absorb many more sugars than we think and don't feel satiated, as if we hadn't eaten anything.

    Wrong habits for your work

    What to do multitasking, procrastinate and always being late are great own goals you probably already know. But there is more.

    10 Having too many meetings

    A list specifies the topics to be discussed, a moderator that enforces it, ability to synthesis, once accurate to dedicate: only in this way can a meeting prove sensible and productive. In all other cases, meetings are a great way to waste valuable time and create confusion in the work team.

    11. Over-planning

    Planning is good, doing it in excess is diabolical. Because many times it is not needed and, even if you do not realize it, it becomes a way to procrastinate the action, using a lot of energy and time really disproportionate compared to the actual need for the project. Always pay attention to the time you spend organizing your plans - if you notice that there is a disparity between the hours you spend planning and the hours you actually spend doing, consider changing something.

    12. Precrastinate

    As opposed to procrastination, pre-crastination is the tendency to face as soon as possible things to do, so as to be sure to meet deadlines and get rid of the thought of pending tasks as soon as possible. Great, you will say. If the quality of the work is high, yes. The problem lies in haste and superficiality that often go hand in hand with this type of approach. Finishing work done so-so early is not a great advantage. If you have a tendency to precrastinate, focus on quality of your work.

    13. Overloading with information and options

    One hundred insights, a thousand useful windows open, a million variables. The 'decision fatigue' theory shows that the more options you have, the harder it will be to orient yourself in your choice. Give yourself a overdrive. Set one symbolic figure for further information (3? 7? 10?) and, once reached, make sure you respect it. Save any interesting hypotheses you discarded for another project or decision. (What about really tough decisions? Here is a useful tool.)

    14. Don't learn from people other than you or "uninteresting"

    Some individuals are so busy dating only 'interesting' and 'successful' people that they close themselves off. Often it is people far from our environment who teach us the most useful things or give us the best ideas. Don't think for schemes and follow your curiosity.

    15. Doing too much, too often, too long, with things you don't like

    First duty after pleasure is one thing. End up spending your best energies and most of the time of your life in actions or projects that make youurticaria it's not good for anyone; neither to you nor to the project.

    Bad habits for your financial situation

    16. The race to the last balance

    I'm not saying don't buy something you're interested in at a clearance sale - in that case, so be it. But beware of the typical mechanism of the sales period: 'ah, it costs nothing, I'll take it!'. Fascinated by the marketing, we end up accumulating a lot of items that we do not use, which are presented with a cheaper price but, if you do the math well, this is not the case for you. 1 shirt of the right size and shape, in your favorite color in normal time costs you 30 euros; 7 stitches of 9,99, which you may never wear, in time of sales they cost you 70 euros.

    17. The CC - Continuous Coffee

    Have you ever noticed that just for one espresso a day you spend 30 euros in a month and 365 € in a year? I know that for us the right coffee is a religion, but to take seven to compensate a lack of sleep or an absence of recovery (see point 3) is not really the best strategy. And then, accompanying it every morning with a sweet will make the bill rise (and you too: P).

    18. Do not use Gift Notes

    If you regularly backtrack with gifts from birthday or, even worse, with those of the holidays like Christmas, if you do not attend some saint of the bank account you will end up cheerfully squandering your finances. I recommend that you use the Gift Note method on yours cellular: Write down the ideas that come to you while listening to your friends or family, when they talk about theirs wishes, needs, curiosities. It will help you buy in advance, at the right price, targeted gifts.

    19. Leave the cell phone charging indefinitely

    Often it happens to leave the smartphone charging even when it is at 100%, also thinking of making a great trick. This habit can be harmful to both consumption (the charger connected to the scale draws energy even if you do not connect the mobile phone), both for the health of your appliance: it is better to charge it several times rather than impose a long 'binge' on it (sorry to disappoint you but no: it is not that you accumulate supplies for the next day).

    20. Always use the ATM only

    Some studies have revealed that handing out of the bills at the time of payment (especially if it is important) it causes a small pang of sorry, connected to what in psychology is called the pain of loss. Which doesn't seem to happen when we use cards. ATM and credit card, in fact, introduce a sort of abstract filter between us and the concreteness of the payment. We end up like this for not perceive the full extent of our spending, and we are willing to pay more.

    21. Secure the refrigerator open

    You may not have thought about it, yet the plastic / philosophical pose of the man who observes the open fridge in search of the ideal meal to devote himself to is the image of energy consumption unnecessary. If you're used to it too, know that you end up spending money - and getting cold. Take some time to think, but maybe do it behind closed doors. Likewise, be careful not to leave lights on when you move from room to room, or to hold the heating active when you leave the house.

    22. Don't develop new skills

    The world of work is constantly evolving and from year to year professions arise that you did not believe could exist and skills are required that you did not think could be used. So, don't 'sit down': elaborate on new interests and developing different skills and talents is essential to always be fresh and competitive and to earn more.

    23. Racing in the car

    The car? And what the heck does the car have to do with dinè? I don't consume more petrol, do I?

    It has to do with it: have you ever counted the fines you get in a year between speeding and park in no parking?

    So how many of these bad habits populate your days?
