Although dating can be great fun, it can also bring a set of complications. Find out if your dating habits are lowering your immunity…

You spend a lot of time on dating sites – This means you don’t leave your couch/chair for hours together. Add to it the hours you spend at sedentary work, watching television, and playing video games. Set up a time limit for this.

Avoid spending more than 30 minutes on dating sites each day.

You meet your dates at bars, pubs, restaurants – Dates involve dining out, which means enjoying drinks, appetisers, dessert, and rich foods.

Not the best for your waistline! Opt for healthier choices, eat a light, healthy snack beforehand, and meet in places that offer healthy options.

When in relationship – You spend time together, watching movies, snacking, which leads to excess calories, high levels of sodium, and unhealthy fats and sugars.

Try cooking a healthy meal at home or doing an activity together, such as going for a walk or a hike or a jog. Join a gym together.

Working out can get deprioritised – You enjoy working out; your partner loves lazing and cuddling at home. Don’t let your workouts be compromised.

Keep some me-time where you stick to your fitness routine while accommodating your love life.

On again, off again relationships can affect mental health – Relationships can bring sadness, anger, confusion and jealousy. Online dating also involves being ‘disliked’ and ignored.

Ghosting is common too. Long-term stress, through relationship failures and heartbreaks, might affect your immunity and also see you indulge in comfort eating and bad lifestyle choices.
