Brushing your teeth, drinking plenty of fluids, and exercising... are healthy habits that are harmful to your health if you do right after a full meal.

Go for a walk

According to ‘Style Craze’, walking right after dinner can slow digestion as well as blood flowing to the hands and feet. Walking right after dinner also prevents the body from absorbing healthy nutrients from the food you eat. Many people may have abdominal pain, and dizziness due to walking after eating.

Drink a lot of water

Drinking water is essential for the body. However, drinking water after a full meal interrupts the digestive process. It affects the secretion of bile and natural acid to efficiently digest the food.

Drink tea

Many people like to sip a cup of tea right after eating, but that does not benefit the body. Polyphenols found in tea can interfere with the absorption of iron from the food. In addition, the acid content of tea interfere with protein digestion.

Take a bath

Bathing after dinner will slow down the blood flow to the stomach and lower body temperature, which will weaken the digestive system. Therefore, you should rest at least 30 minutes after eating and then take a bath.

Smoking

Smokers tend to smoke at least one cigarette after eating. They did not expect that this will be equivalent to 10 cigarettes. After eating, the increase in blood flow in the digestive system absorbs quickly harmful ingredients in cigarettes, thereby damaging the body.

Brush your teeth

Brushing your teeth is one of the healthy habits in the evening to prevent decay. However, brushing the teeth immediately after eating can cause damage to the teeth. So you should only brush your teeth after eating for at least 30 minutes.

Drive

After dinner, the digestive system requires a lot of blood flow to the stomach, driving at this time will reduce the blood flow in the brain, causing distraction. In addition, you may feel sleepy after eating, which is not good for driving. Therefore, you should take an hour rest after eating and then drive.

Do exercise

Many people do not have enough time to exercise during the day so they usually practice after eating. This will divert blood from the stomach to other organs and impair the metabolism. In addition, exercise after eating can increase blood pressure and body temperature, which affects your sleep and leads to abdominal pain.
