Biting Your Nails

 Why?

This can damage your teeth as well as the skin around your nail bed, which can lead to infection. 
You also may get more colds and other illnesses when you put your fingers, which often carry germs, into your mouth


Listening to Music too Loudly

 
Why?

Sound is measured in decibels -- normal conversation is about 60 decibels. It's best to keep the volume in your headphones below 75 
(about as loud as a vacuum cleaner) to be safe.And don't listen for more than a couple of hours at a time. 
You're more likely to lose hearing as you age if you're around loud noise a lot. That happens with more than half of us by age 75.


Not Sleeping Enough

 Why?

If you don’t get enough sleep, you’re not just turning yourself into a daytime zombie --
you also could be more likely to have high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and depression. And it might be harder for you to learn and remember things. 



Cracking Your Knuckles

Why?

A substance called synovial fluid keeps your joints moving easily. The sound your knuckles make when they “crack” comes when you pop tiny bubbles in that fluid.
If you do it all the time, you’re more likely to have swollen hands and a weaker grip over time.

Going Online Before Bed

Why?

The “blue light” given off by electronic gadgets like phones, computers, and TVs can mess up your sleep. 
And some studies show that too much of any kind of nighttime light might be linked to cancer (especially breast and prostate), diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. 


Sitting All Day

Why?

Most Americans spend too much time in chairs. Part of the problem is the modern workplace, where you may hunker over your computer for hours on end. 
This slows down your metabolism, which means you could gain weight. It’s also linked to other health problems, including heart disease.

Drinking Too Much

Why?

Men who have more than 14 alcoholic beverages a week -- and women who have more than seven -- 
are more likely to have kidney disease, liver disease, digestive issues, heart problems, bone damage, and even some cancers. Studies have shown that moderate 
drinking -- up to a drink a day for women and two a day for men -- could possibly lower your chances of certain heart conditions.
But if you don’t drink alcohol, that’s not a reason to start.

Eating Too Much

Why?

If you make a habit of it -- even if it’s healthy food -- you’re likely to gain weight. 
That can lead to heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure, and it can raise your chances of certain kinds of cancer. 

Smoking Cigarettes

Why?

This bad habit affects nearly every organ in your body. It can lead to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, bronchitis, emphysema, and other health problems. 
It also raises your risk of tuberculosis, eye problems, and immune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis. 

Using Tanning Beds

Why?

Women with lighter hair and skin -- who get skin cancer more often -- are also more likely than others to use tanning beds, which can make the chances of it even higher.
And the younger you are when you start, the more likely you are to get it.
