By Cherith

1 Nail Biting

Not only is nail biting a nasty habit, but it also keeps your nails from growing strong and healthy. And just think how much prettier your nails will look if you take better care of them! Try wearing nail polish or dibbing your nails in Tabasco sauce to discourage you from biting them.

2 Going to Bed with Makeup on

We are all guilty of this at one time or another in our life! We’re either too tired or too lazy to wash our face before going to bed. But don’t let that be an excuse! Going to bed with makeup on clogs your pores and encourages acne. Not to mention the unsightly stains you will have on your pillowcases and sheets!

3 Eating Late at Night

Here’s another one that we can all admit to! I know I seem to get the munchies the later I stay up and it’s not healthy! Eating late at night will prevent you from getting good rest and it packs on the pounds. Try and eat a nourishing, healthy supper and if you feel hungry late at night, have a glass of water or a glass of milk instead of cookies and chips.

4 Procrastinating

Yikes! Procrastination never helped anyone that I know of! Try and push yourself to be punctual and stay ahead of yourself. Whether it’s at school, at work, or commitments and pledges you’ve made to friends and family members, make it top priority! They will appreciate it and you will feel better about yourself.

5 Gossip

Ugh! Gossip is cruel and mean. Think about how it makes you feel before you indulge in a rude conversation about someone, especially if you don’t know the facts or it has nothing to do with you. You will be a better person for standing up to gossip. Instead, say nice things about someone!

6 Skipping Breakfast

Ok, ok, I’ll admit I’m guilty of this one nearly every day. But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a bad habit! Skipping breakfast slows your metabolism and gives you a sugar rush later on in the day. If you’re crunched for time, grab a granola bar or a banana or a breakfast smoothie and eat it on the way out the door.

7 Yo-Yo Dieting

Do I really even need to explain the dangers of this one? Everyone should know it if they don’t already. Vigorous yo-yo dieting can cause you to seriously gain weight. Pick a healthy diet or eating program and stick to eat. It’s ok to have cake or candy every now and then just don’t go back and forth between eating healthy and eating junk all the time.

It may be hard to kick theses habits at first, but stick with it and try your best. Give yourself and little room if you mess up once or twice, that’s ok. Just try not to fall back into the same pattern again! You’ll be a better person for it!
