Often, after a full meal, I naturally feel sleepy. On weekends, I sometimes head back to bed after lunch. Some of my smoker friends like to go for a puff immediately after a meal. Others like to have a cup of tea thinking it will help them digest the food. Many of these habits do you more harm than good.Here are 5 things you should avoid doing immediately after a full meal:
On some weekends, I plunge into bed after lunch. More often than not, I wake up still feeling full from the meal. The meal has not been digested at all! A nap immediately after a meal is also not relaxing.
It is said that smoking after a meal is equivalent to smoking 10 cigarettes. No matter how true or false this is, smoking is harmful to your body and you should not smoke anyhow.
Bathing after a meal delays digestion. The blood around the stomach flows to other parts of the body during a shower instead of helping with digestion.
