These Bad Habits Bad Habits Could Also Be Good for You?

Everyone knows we're not supposed to bite our nails or pee in the shower . . . but what if those things are actually GOOD for you?


Britain's "Sun" tabloid collected 12 "bad habits," and then listed a potential BENEFIT to that behavior, based on some random scientific research.


Here they are . . . but keep in mind, this is just for fun. Despite the "science" they're based on, they may still have more negative ramifications than positive.


1. Chewing with your mouth full . . . makes food taste better by making the aromas easier to smell.


2. Biting your nails . . . boosts your immune system by introducing it to bacteria.


3. Chewing gum . . . sharpens your focus and memory.


4. Not cleaning up . . . messiness can be a sign of intelligence.


5. Slouching . . . can be good for joints and limit back stiffness after a period of hard, physical work.


6. Being late . . . makes you happy and less stressed.


7. Sleeping in . . . helps boost your memory and can help you live longer.


8. Playing with your hair . . . alleviates boredom and can reduce anxiety.


9. Peeing in the shower . . . cleans your feet and can prevent fungal issues. But if you have a cut, be warned, you could get a bacterial infection.


10. Fidgeting . . . can burn 10 times more calories than keeping still.


11. Gossiping . . . can reduce stress and anxiety. And laughing releases "feel-good" hormones.


12. Swearing . . . relieves pain, according to a study that found that cursing boosted pain tolerance by about 33%.
