Are Your Bad Habits Good for You?

Do you need a cup or two of coffee to get going in the morning?  Or perhaps you finish your evening with beer?  Although these and other habits are generally frowned upon in our society, studies have shown that some “bad” habits can actually be good for you.

  • Coffee.  Drinking coffee in the morning and throughout the day can actually help regulate your mood because it alters chemicals in your brain, such as dopamine and serotonin.  If you are not a coffee drinker, do not take up the habit.  If you are a coffee drinker, now you can feel better about your morning cup of Joe, but you should always watch your caffeine intake.
  • Working out.  Missing a workout two days in a row may cause some people to stress out.  However, research shows that muscles are only able to repair and strengthen when they are at rest.  Taking a day or two off of exercising is actually recommended to build your muscles.
  • Beer.  Wisconsinites may not need a reason to throw back a few, but research shows that beer is rich in disease-fighting antioxidants.
  • Procrastinating.  Everyone is guilty of this one—putting off cleaning, work, or renewing a Wisconsin insurance plan because of distractions.  Distractions that make you laugh are actually beneficial to your health; laughing can trigger feel-good endorphins and boost your mood.  Just remember to eventually get your to-do list completed.
