3. Wearing poor quality sunglasses
In their striving to save money, manufacturers use cheap plastic that doesn’t protect your eyes from UV, which, in bright sunlight, can lead to retinal burn. The shading makes your pupils dilate and receive a double dose of ultraviolet, which is even more harmful than not wearing sunglasses at all. Excess UV may cause cataracts, damage your eyes, or even result in cancer.
4. Drinking lots of water
Yes, you read that right: drinking a lot of water isn’t always healthy, although so is drinking too little. Researchers insist that the body’s water needs are individual. If you move a lot and do sports, drink more; if you have kidney or cardiovascular issues, better drink less. In either case, the best way to find your daily requirement is thirst – if you don’t feel it, then don’t push it.
