Did you know that there are loads of hidden things in your life that could well be harming your health? It sounds a bit sinister, and quite scary too, but it’s true. We focus a lot of attention on being healthy by doing certain things and shying away from bad habits. But, there are many things that we aren’t aware of that are really bad for our health. So, I made a list of some of these, so you can now be aware of them, and hopefully, find ways of preventing them from harming you any further.

Bathroom Mold

Have you ever noticed bits of black in the grouting between your bathroom tiles? You’ve tried cleaning it as much as you can, but it isn’t going anywhere. So, you just assume that it’s a stubborn bit of muck and you’ll just have to live with it. However, this black stuff is actually mold, and it can harm your health. Mold can trigger allergies, and be very harmful to people with breathing problems like asthma. If you constantly feel like your nose is blocked and it’s hard to breathe, then this could be due to bathroom mold – or mold anywhere in your house!

Your Mattress

Yes, your mattress could be damaging your health in more ways that you really know. Firstly, a bad mattress with poor support can damage your physical health by causing problems in your back muscles that may well linger forever. But, the materials your mattress is made out of can also have damaging effects on your health. I’ve been reading a lot of Zinus mattress reviews lately and found out that they use things like plant oils to create memory foam. This isn’t the shocking thing, what’s shocking is that it isn’t the norm. Most memory foam mattresses are made out of crude oils and packed full of chemicals that can emit toxins. So, you could be lying on something that’s basically releasing bad toxins into the air for you to breathe in – not good for your health at all!

Your Computer

How on earth does a computer harm your health? Well, it can do many things to you that are not very good at all. For one, staring at a screen for too long will damage your eyesight and could cause repetitive headaches. However, the main problem is that using a computer puts you in a very bad position. You’re hunched over typing for hours, and it messes up your posture. Having bad posture is so harmful to your overall health. It can impact your breathing, alter your mental state, and cause lots of physical pain. As a result, if you work at a computer all day long, make sure you take regular breaks to avoid all these postural problems.

So, there you go; three hidden things you probably weren’t aware of, but they’ve been damaging your health this whole time. If you’ve fallen victim to any of these things, then I hope my article has helped shine a light on the issues for you to take care of them!
