We’ve all had one bad habit or another at some point in our lives. But do you still harbour some bad habits? Although you might think you’re fine right now, your bad habits could be seriously impacting your life. Let’s take a look at how your bad habits are affecting your life:
Drinking to Excess
Drinking every now and again is OK, as long as you’re not bingeing and doing things you really regret the next day. In fact, some people say that drinking can be good for you, if you indulge in a glass of red wine a few times a week. However, drinking to excess can be really bad for you. You can put on weight, ruin your hair, nails, and skin, and more. It isn’t just about looks either; you could be doing your liver and other vital organs damage. Be mindful of how much you drink each week.
I shouldn’t have to go into too much detail about smoking. Smoking is a very dangerous habit. It cuts lives short, and can increase your risk of developing all kinds of illnesses. It’s getting even easier to quit these days with the help of vaping liquids and the like. If you continue to smoke, you can make yourself blind, and look old beyond your years. Your teeth can rot and fall out. We’ve all seen the pictures on the packets too!
Taking drugs is a broad term. All drugs can affect you differently, but some more than others. Getting addicted to substances like heroin and cocaine is very dangerous. You can alienate people, lose all of your money, and your home. Some people end up killing themselves. Even softer drugs carry risks.
Eating junk might not seem like a big deal, but you won’t be helping your health. Junk should only ever be consumed in moderation, once every now and again. Certainly not every day. Not only can you gain weight, you can give yourself heart disease and other problems.
Being lazy might not seem like it affects you all that much, but in essence, you’re wasting your life. You get 24 hours in a day to get things done, and many people manage to get a substantial amount done in that time. Procrastinating is a very bad habit!
Pressing snooze in the morning gives people the illusion of having longer in bed. However, all it does is interrupt your sleep. Any sleep you get after that first alarm goes off is not quality sleep, and therefore makes you more tired when you finally get out of bed. Instead, set your alarm to the time you actually need to get up, and make sure you get up. Simple!
If you have any of the habits on this list, try to kick them now. There’s help out there for everybody, so make sure you go and get it. Soon you’ll be on your way to a cleaner, more productive, happier life!
