I am gonna go straight to the point because there is no need of beating around the bush!
- Head covering while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease the concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.
- Listening to loud music
Some people are found of listening to music at a very high volume, they will increase the volume to the highest while the song is on, it is totally wrong. Listening to music at a very high volume with your earphones or headphones might damage your hearing abilities permanently . It can result in some brain problems such as loss of memory and damage to your brain tissue in the coming future. This is because brain is the one, which takes efforts to comprehend what is being said around you. If you apply excess pressure on your brain, it’s sure to get damaged.
Research have proven that smoking does not only cause liver or lung damage it also affects the brain. Cigarettes contain addictive nicotine which causes the brain to shrink. Brain shrinkage is caused as a result of smoking and excessive intake of nicotine. That is to say if you are addicted to smoking, you are putting your brain in grave danger.
- Taking too much sugar
Excessive intake of sugar for a long period disturbs our body’s capacity to absorb proteins and nutrients. This result in a condition called malnutrition, which deters brain’s growth.

The brain requires high level of nutrients to function properly.
- Staying in a poorly Ventilated area
The brain requires high level of oxygen to function. According to research four minutes seizure of oxygen to the brain leads to death immediately. So staying in a poorly Ventilated area for a long period of time can affect the functionality of the brain.

You drink water at all time not only when you feel dehydrated or thirsty why because all metabolic activities in the body is controlled by water; so the brain needs more water.
- Lack of sleep
Several researches have revealed that the brain purifies itself of toxins only during the deep sleep cycle. Lack of sleep can cause the death of brain cells, which can lead to impaired memory and reduced abilities. Some people over work their brain during the day and at last get few sleep, it is totally wrong; after the day’s activity, you ought to give time to rest adequately to all your brain relax and function better.
