Everyday Things We Do Wrong

Force of habit is truly terrifying. It’s hard to imagine how many everyday things most of us do wrong. Everything happens automatically with the help of reflexes.

Believe it or not, many of the little habits that we are used to actually only make things worse or are just not that effective as we may think.

Everyday Things We Do Wrong

Washing Your Face With Hot Water

Washing the face is one of the many morning rituals. Many people do it with hot or at least warm water. But hot water actually dries out your skin. Better to wash your face with cold or lukewarm water. A pleasant bonus: it reduces swelling.

Flushing the Toilet

By flushing the toilet with the lid open, you help the bacteria spread throughout the room. Water splashes contain dangerous microorganisms. To prevent this, always close the lid before flushing.

Eating Fast

Yes, of course, few people have enough time to eat. Almost everything has to be done on the run. However, experts say that fast meals lead to obesity because the brain simply does not have time to realize what has already been eaten. Therefore, often the brain makes us overeat.

Morning Coffee

Who would refuse a cup of coffee at the start of a long day? On the one hand, it helps get rid of drowsiness, but it also stimulates the release of cortisol. There are three times during the day when we have the most cortisol. One of them is the time after waking up. And drinking coffee can train the body not to release cortisol in the morning at all.

Stirring Your Tea

It is difficult to find a person who would stir sugar in a cup of tea not in a circular motion, but in some other way. After all, it’s so convenient. However, if you move the spoon back and forth, then the sugar is stirred much faster. And there are much fewer accidental splashes.

Peeling Bananas

We are sure that you, like us, peel the banana, starting from the top. Most people do. But it turns out that if you start peeling it from the bottom, it is much more convenient and faster.

And this is just a small part of everyday things we do wrong. People have been repeating these routines for so long, that they no longer even think that it’s possible to do those differently.


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
