The habits that increase your risk of diabetes are: 1) Eating a diet rich in refined carbohydrates like white rice and refined flour. Instead, include complex carbohydrates like whole grains, brown rice, and oatmeal. 2) Sitting for 8 to 10 hours a day in front of your computers and not doing any physical activity. Keep taking breaks and move around and stretch. 3) Staying up late and depriving yourself of proper sleep hours. Studies have shown that getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep every day helps maintain blood pressure and sugar levels. 4) Too much stress results in the release of certain hormones that increase your blood sugar. Manage stress through exercise and meditation. 5) Skipping breakfast makes you consume more calories during the day. Have a wholesome breakfast every day.
