If you're guilty of doing any of these things, you're not alone! Here is a list of what we thought were just harmless habits, but could actually hurt us in the long run.
- Crossing your legs.
It may have been a worldwide rule that every girl has crossed their legs at some point. Crossing your legs could give you spider veins and this could be also the cause of your back pain, raised blood pressure, and messes with the nerves in your feet. (via yahoo.com)
- Carrying your bag by the crook of your elbow.
Carrying bags—especially oversized ones—on bent elbows can cause you more harm than you think. Because it gives extra strain to your biceps and elbow joint, it could give you shoulder problems, torn muscles and inflamed tendons.
- Not taking your make up off before going to sleep.
Whatever your excuse may be, if you have time to put on makeup, you should also make the time to take it off—your skin will thank you for it! Aside from having clogged pores, if you sleep with your mascara still on, it could irritate your eyes and lead to loss of vision.
- Eating when you're emotional.
Everyone loves food and sometimes, food is just the answer we need when we feel emotional. But by doing this, you could end up overweight or obese.
- Hair Twirling.
You know you do this when there's a cute boy nearby, but did you know that by doing this, it promotes frizzy hair and could also lead to hair loss.
