When you are using your laptop continuously for a long time, it can generate a lot of heat. And if you are keeping it on your lap, then that heat can warm your testicles beyond the normal temperature, thus negatively affecting your testosterone levels as well as sperm health. Always keep this in mind while working on a laptop.
10. Don’t get too involved in one-sided attractions
You should always be honest with your partner. When you are guilty, you try to suppress that feeling which can lead to more stress, and ultimately anxiety. Anxiety can cause several harmful biochemical reactions in the brain which can have a negative effect on your body.
