Bad Habits That Can Harm Your Health (That Most Americans Are Guilty Of)

To put it lightly, the United States isn’t exactly known for being the healthiest country around. We’re known for going big when it comes to food and other unhealthy activities, tending to put our health on the backburner. There’s a reason the obesity rate and other unhealthy conditions have been slowly climbing for the past few decades in America, and it all comes down to the habits that we’ve adopted without question. See what some of these unhealthy habits are. Are you guilty of any of them?

Eating In Front Of Screens

Sadly, more often than not, people find themselves sitting in front of a screen while eating, with some people even having the television on during family dinner. While this isn’t inherently unhealthy, what it does is take your attention away from your food, leading you to not realize how much you ate.
