We all know people who look exactly the same as they did 5 years ago. While we all wish we could look great  at any age, there are some bad habits that can make you age faster, and they can also be dangerous for your overall health.

Here are some bad habits that make you age faster than you should:

Not getting enough exercise

Exercise is very important, not just for weight loss and staying fit but also to relieve stress. Stress is one of the main reasons for rapid ageing and regular exercise helps you handle stressful situations better. Exercise will also help improve your health and prevent a lot of diseases that come with age.

Sitting for too long

According to research, sitting for more than eight hours a day can increase the risk of early death in women by up to 60%. This is possible even with women who exercise regularly and eat healthy. Sedentary positions reduce blood circulation in the body and can cause health issues like heart disease and increased blood pressure.

Eating too much junk food

If you live in a city like Lagos, eating well balanced meals might not always be possible. However, you should limit junk food to the barest minimum and try to eat fruits and vegetables as often as possible. Fast foods usually have a high fat content that can lead to a lot of health issues. Junk food can also increase your chances of getting cancer and other illnesses over time.

Not getting enough sleep

Getting a good night’s rest is not just about how long you sleep, it’s also about how well you sleep. Not getting proper sleep can reduce your ability to handle stress and battle illnesses. It can also cause skin issues like wrinkles and skin discolouration.

Stress is the most common factor that makes people age faster than normal so in a country like Nigeria we have to take extra precautions. Here are some tips to follow to manage stress.
