Some bad habits do you good

2 08 2013

We burp, we sleep in for 13 hours over the
weekend, we bite our nails, we crack our
knuckles… We all have bad habits. Some habits
we can try and kick out and some habits
unfortunately we can’t help but accept and live
with as part of us. The good news is that some of our bad habits can actually work in our
favor and are good for us. Below are some of

#Chewing gum is actually good in a number of ways.Chewing gum helps reduce stress and
tension. Improves oral health. Improves
digestion but this is as long as you chew your
gum after meals. You frequently swallow while
chewing your gum because when you chew
you produce excess saliva. This saliva produced helps keep digestive acids down in
your stomach. On a more scientific level, chewing gum is said
to boost memory power and also helps to curb
food cravings which may contribute to weight
loss. #Knuckle cracking- Apparently cracking your knuckles can have therapeutic benefits.
There’s evidence that your joints get increased
mobility in joints right after you pop them
(however, this is a habit you should really try
to quit because if you do this for years you can
damage your soft tissue in your joints and eventually reduce the strength of your grip. #Belching is good for your health. It helps relieve discomfort and bloating, prevents gas
accumulation, relieves pressure, Aids in
digestion by getting rid of excess gas and is
good for the stomach. Note however that
excessive burping is a sign of poor digestion. #Oversleeping may help maintain a body’s vital functions, allows your skin to reappear
refreshed and rejuvenated it may also help
fight some medical conditions such as obesity,
cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Oversleep
at least once a week may improve your long
term memory. #Fidgeting: Apparently when you fidget you are actually trying really to keep alert and concentrate on the matter at hand hence you are indeed exercising your brain!

#Nail biting: This is one of the common bad habit people have. The only best part about nail biting is that it is believed to actually boost your immune system. Apparently we pick up bugs when we bite our nails and these bugs help boost our immune system. #Spitting can help clear the throat for easier breathing. When the weather gets cold, saliva
tends to thicken which makes it a little difficult
for some people to breathe easily. In such a
case spitting out the thickened saliva your
throat opens for easier passage of air.
