Being a young adult can be a daunting proposition, but these are the times to have fun. The most important thing is to know when to draw a line when it comes to fun. A lot of people in their 20s tend to work or go to college during the week and then overdo things during the weekends. The lifestyle choices directly impact how their health will be five to ten years down the line. Here in this article, we look at some of the crazy things young adults do in their 20s that adversely affect them in the long run.
- Binge Boozing
A study recently showed that over 40% of women tend to binge drink during the weekends while men tend to binge drink 50% of the time regardless of what day it is. Right now, all you have to do is nurse a hangover the next day, and you’re sorted. But roll down the years, and the toll could become too big of a task. Drinking stresses the liver and kidneys to a great extent and the entire filtration mechanism. Most people who drink tend to not hydrate themselves appropriately leading to greater stress being placed on the liver and kidneys. It should be noted that the liver takes a considerable amount of time to filter one unit of alcohol; so our advice is that you should take your drinks slowly and you should know your limits. Going over your limits is the biggest problem as the stress that is put on your system greatly increases and more organs tend to become affected as well.
- Social Necessities
Most smokers at one point were social smokers or were people who used to have a smoke while drinking. This association can easily become an addiction and pose a greater threat to the health of the individual. It usually starts off as a few smokes while chilling with friends to a few packs while chilling with friends to a few packs when it is just you. Notice the signs and stop as soon as possible. But if you are far into it then seeking professional help or an alternative is a good choice to make. Social gatherings are also prone to drug use that can easily become an even bigger problem to control and manage.
We have all come through this stage that you are at; the sudden feeling of freedom can leave many astray. We are not going to tell you to stop entirely; we are advising you to be responsible.
