Everyone knows that habits like smoking or eating a lot of junk food can have a negative impact on our health, but there are a lot of lesser-known harmful habits that have become a part of our everyday lives.
10. Keeping your wallet in your back pocket
Anyone who carries a wallet knows that the most convenient place to keep it is in the back pocket of your jeans. But, while that may be convenient, it definitely isn’t healthy. Sitting on your wallet even for a brief 15-minute period can cause your spine to shift and your spinal ligaments will start to change.
This will eventually create an asymmetry that can disrupt your spine’s normal alignment. Sitting on your wallet for long periods can cause chronic back pain, sciatica, and functional scoliosis.
