Habits make a person who they are. Whether they are good or bad, they play an essential role in defining someone's personality. Aside from the distinct bad habits, some hazardous practices can be harmful to your health! These may seem very innocent, but they are not, and BrightSide has made us a list to see if we have them and should get rid of them ASAP!
Stifling a sneeze:
This has been a debatable topic; some say its a myth but BrightSide made sure to give us authentic reports which say that blocking out your cold by closing your mouth or nose as it comes will cause damage to your insides. The list includes; the respiratory tract, the brain and the oesophagus. Blocking it would take the pressure of the sneeze to grow inside your body, and that is not safe! Cover your mouth, don't shut it down.
You are picking your teeth!
Even though using a toothpick may seem like a fun thing to you you a quick fix to get your teeth clean when you are out on a date, it is known to damage the gums and the dentist hate it! It is preferred to use dental floss instead, and that too the right way.
