This habit could be developed due to our unrealistic standards to always have perfect nails: colored, neat, and all at the same length. People splurge on manicures but still manage to nibble on their freshly manicured nails! What is even more terrible is the annoying sound of someone chewing on their nails.
There is nothing more annoying than sitting beside someone gnawing away at her nails. Nail-biting can also increase your chance of spreading germs, and if the skin breaks, the fingers might get infected one nail at a time.
Overthinking Your Texts
Since the invention of e-mail and text, words have gone misunderstood many times. Texting just lacks many of the social cues used in actual face-to-face conversations, this has created an obsession around making our texts sound perfect.
It's totally okay to check it over, but when you find yourself reading it a dozen times and waiting a few days before you send it, you know you have developed a bad habit.
Overstocking Your Fridge
Maintaining refrigerators is a piece of cake, right? All you need to do is plug it in and your fridge will do the rest. What could be easier? Only, it's not really that simple.
When we fill our fridge to the brim after an arduous trip to the store, we might be forgetting about air circulation, which plays a substantial role in keeping everything in your fridge fresh and cold. When your fridge is chock-a-block full, you're obstructing all that circulation. That means the fridge needs to work harder to keep everything at a cool temperature.
Having Smoothies for Breakfast
So you've decided to lead a healthier lifestyle — that's great! Maybe you'll pick up a class at the local gym and eat more veggies. You've even begun replacing breakfast with smoothies!
But wait, before you do that, you should know that most smoothie recipes consist of fruits, yogurts, and honey, which means you'll get way too much sugar in one serving. These ingredients may be good for you, having too much at once is not a great way to start your day.
Running Too Fast
Running to get fit should help alleviate stress, not give you more of it. Anyone can start running it — it doesn't involve getting an expensive gym membership, or fancy equipment. All one needs to do is put on their best trainers and go outside for a run. Nice and easy, right?
While we would want to start running as fast as we can, doing too much too soon is one of the biggest mistakes fledgling runners make. New runners need to take it easy and start off slow when building up a mileage base before taking speed.
