How do you relax? Is it making you ill?

Filed under: , ,

Relaxation is generally considered an essential part of a healthy life, both physically and mentally. But it's important to find the right way to relax -- believe it or not, certain forms of relaxation can actually be bad for you. AOL body has come up with this list of unhealthy relaxation techniques:
  • Watching TV: This is one of the most popular ways to relax but it's been linked to UN-health -- especially obesity.
  • Drinking: This is a favourite way to unwind. But the more stressed out you are, the more likely you are to overdo it -- and do your body damage in the process.
  • Smoking ... anything: Um ... duh!
  • Running too much: Running should be to improve health -- it shouldn't be an obsessive way of burning calories.
  • Eating: Yeah, comfort foods makes you feel ... well ... comfortable, but it will lead to you not being very comfortable in your clothes.
