Three Bad Habits That Are Not so Bad

Everyone has a few bad habits, and most people try to give theirs up because they know they are bad for them (smoking, anyone?). However, out of all the things consider bad for you (yes, you with the third cup of coffee) not all bad habits are necessarily bad. Since so many women love so many bad things, why not sit back and enjoy a few bad habits that are oh-so good for your mind, body and soul.

Coffee Cravings

You tell your kids that mommy cannot function until she is completely finished with one cup of coffee; after that, she makes no promises but she will try very hard to function. Everyone is always telling you to stop it with the caffeine, but recent studies have found that drinking coffee – in moderation, third cup lady – can help lower your risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and it reduces your chances of developing brain tumors by as much as 30 percent. Drink up, ladies!

I’ll Just Do it Tomorrow…

Your mom probably taught you that you should never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. However, when that something is washing the dishes or changing the sheets, go ahead and wait. As far as research shows, not changing the sheets for an extra day ever killed anyone. Instead, do something fun such as taking the kids to the park or indulging yourself with a new book from the bestseller list.

Not Using Your Smart Phone/Tablet/Computer

Chances are, you spend enough time using your electronics, so there is no shame in forgetting to use your very expensive calendar system to make notes about a lunch date or to keep track of your grocery list. Using the tried and true method of writing things down on a piece of paper is actually better for you because it activates the learn and recall portion of your mind. Yes, your iPad was expensive, but your memory is priceless.
