    Surprisingly░ Bad░ Places░ For░ Health

    When it comes to How You Feel, it's not justWhat You Do, it'sWhere You Do it. Here, surprisingly bad locales for your health--and the best places to optimize it.


    The worst place for your Toothbrush: On the Bathroom Sink


     






    There's nothing wrong with the sink itself--but it's awfully chummy with the toilet. There are 3.2 million microbes per square inch in the average toilet bowl. When you flush, aerosolized toilet funk is propelled as far as 6 feet, settling on the floor, the sink, and your toothbrush. "Unless you like rinsing with toilet water, keep your toothbrush behind closed doors--in the medicine cabinet or a nearby cupboard.

    The worst place for sneakers & flip-flops: In the Bedroom Closet





    Walking through your house in shoes you wear outside is a great way to track in allergens and contaminants. Shoes also carry in pollen and other allergens. Reduce exposure by slipping off rough-and-tumble shoes by the door; store them in a basket or under an entryway bench. If your pumps stay off the lawn, they can make the trip to the bedroom--otherwise, carry them.

    Worst place to try to fall asleep: Under Piles of Blankets

    Worst place to try to fall asleep: Under Piles of Blankets





    Being overheated can keep you from nodding off, researchers say: A natural nighttime drop in your core temperature triggers your body to get drowsy. To ease your way to sleep, help your body radiate heat from your hands and feet. Don socks to dilate the blood vessels in the extremities--then take the socks off and let a foot stick out from under the blankets.

    Worst place to Cool Leftovers: In The Refrigerator

    Worst place to Cool Leftovers: In The Refrigerator





    Placing a big pot of hot edibles directly into the fridge is a recipe for uneven cooling and possibly food poisoning. The reason: It can take a long time for the temperature in the middle of a big container to drop, creating a cozy environment for bacteria. You can safely leave food to cool on the counter for up to an hour after cooking Or divvy up hot food into smaller containers and then refrigerate--it'll cool faster.

    Worst place for a Workout Reminder: Stuck on your Post-It laden Fridge




    A visual nudge can help--but only if you notice it. In one study, a sign urging people to use the stairs rather than the nearby escalator increased the number of people who climbed on foot by nearly 200%. Put your prompt near a decision point--keep your pile of Pilates DVDs next to the TV; put a sticky note on your steering wheel to make sure you get to your after-work kickboxing class. Just remember: The boost you get from a reminder is usually short-term, so change the visuals often.

    Worst place to sit on an airplane: The Rear !





    Avoid this section if you're prone to airsickness. Think of a seesaw, The farther from the center you are, the more up-and-down movement you experience. Because the tail of the plane tends to be longer than the front, that's the bumpiest of all. The smoothest option is sitting as close to the wing as you can.

    Worst place to pick up a prescription: The Pharmacy Drive-Thru!





    In a survey of 429 pharmacists, respondents ranked drive-thru windows high among distracting factors that can lead to prescription processing delays and errors. If you don't want to give up the convenience of a rolling pickup, be sure to check that both drug and dose are what the doctor ordered.

    The worst place to set your handbag: The kitchen counter

    The worst place to set your handbag: The kitchen counter






    Your fancy handbag is a major tote for microbes: can have up to 10,000 bacteria per square inch on purse bottoms--and a third of the bags tested positive for fecal bacteria! A woman's carryall gets parked in some nasty spots: on the floor of the bus, beneath the restaurant table--even on the floor of a public bathroom. Put your bag in a drawer or on a chair - anywhere except where food is prepared or eaten.

    Worst stall to pick in a public restroom: The One in the Mid

    Worst stall to pick in a public restroom: The One in the Middle !






    The center stall has more bacteria than those on either end. No, you won't catch an STD from a toilet seat. But you can contract all manner of ills if you touch a germy toilet handle and then neglect to wash your hands thoroughly

    Worst place to stand during your first few fitness classes: Front and Center





    You might think that you'd want to be near the mirrors so you can check your form, but your sweat session will be more motivating if your view is obstructed. In a research, 58 sedentary women all exercised at similar intensity levels. But those who did it in a mirrored room reported feeling more anxious about their body's imperfections after their workout than women who sweated without mirrors distracting them.
