have an effect on this. Particularly for women: thongs move bacteria easily from the back to the front. This leads to yeast and urinary tract infections.
For men, tight boxer briefs can limit the production of sperm as the internal temperature of the scrotum rises from restriction.
Only wear tight underwear for physical activities, and spend the rest of your day in underwear that allows breathability. Additionally, be cautious of which fabrics your underwear are made of. For the purpose of moisture-wicking, choose a synthetic material and for everyday wear. Opt for a cotton blend.
We all have that one pair of high heels that pair perfectly with our little black dress, but we might want to consider twice before throwing them on for a long night out with the girls. Heels can cause serious pain and damage to your feet, knees, hips, and spine including muscle imbalances, tendonitis, and bone issues.
Less severe, but unsightly issues such as bunions, toe deformity, ingrowing toenails can also occur. It is also easy to lose your balance and fall over in them putting you at risk of breaks and sprains.
Avoid wearing high heels for a prolonged amount of time. When you do wear them choose a pair that has room for your feet to move and consider adding a gel insert inside. It also helps to wear a supportive pair of shoes to your destination and change into the heels once you arrive there.
Backpacks and Handbags can affect your posture and balance when the weight is not evenly distributed. This is why your back and shoulder muscles begin to ache at the end of a long day at work, school, or even the mall. A heavy bag can weigh down on your upper extremities and can even create pinched nerves in this area.
Search for a bag with supportive straps that will help to distribute the support evenly across your shoulders and back. Empty it out at least once a week to lighten the load you are placing on your back and shoulders each day.
Bathing Suit Bottoms
Staying in your wet bathing suit bottoms for several hours could lead to the growth of bacteria. Bacteria’s favorite place to breed is in wet, warm and dark places. Because of the material, most bathing suits are made to stay wet for a long period of time and can become harmful to your health.
It’s important that you change into dry bottoms immediately after getting out of the water. Also, make sure that your bottoms have a little give to them so they have room to breathe.
Humans have been investing in shapewear since ancient days. We have these idealistic body figures that we are told are desirably placed into our brains from a young age. Because of this, we spend money on shapewear that helps us create that ideal shape by sucking everything in by the method of corsets and spandex.
The truth is, however, that shapewear is horrible for our health. The issue we create by forcing everything into one place is that there isn’t a lot of room for everything to move internally. The organs become squished and we find ourselves having stomach pains and even trouble breathing.
When you choose to wear shapewear, do it sparingly. Save it for special occasions and limit the length of time you wear it for.
