The society has always poked fun and ostracized people who have weird and gross habits. But do you know that these gross dirty habits are actually beneficial? Curious? Let’s find out!
#1. TAKING A PEE WHILE YOU ARE IN THE SHOWER
75% of people have done it while taking a shower. But did you know that your pee can prevent fungal infections on your toes? The uric acid and ammonia help in cleansing effectively.
#2. SPITTING OUT WHILE EXERCISING
If you are exercising then you need to do it. That’s because we tend to breathe through our mouths when we workout and that leads to excess salivation.
#3. MUNCHING ON SOME CHEWING GUM
Chewing gum can assist you in focusing, improving your memory, reduce stress, and raising cortisol levels, which in turn balances your hormones.
#4. LETTING OUT THAT FART
It takes about 6 hours to start the digestive process. In the meantime, the body needs to dispense the gases(carbon-di-oxide and methane). Farting helps to release them. If you hold back, be prepared for abdominal pain.
#5. BURPING OUT AFTER A HEARTY MEAL
It is actually good for your stomach. But have you ever snubbed a belch? Holding gas inside your belly often causes the gastric acid to splash into the gullet. This can give you a pain in the chest.
Your immune starts manufacturing white blood cells when you bite nails. Biting nails help you fight infection by storing bacterial memory. It also prevents kids from having any sort of allergies. Really? Wow!
#7. EATING YOUR SNOT AFTER PICKING YOUR NOSE
Think eating nose boogers could be beneficial for your health? No? In fact, it actually is. It contains salivary mucins that can produce cavity-fighting bacteria.
#8. NOT HAVING A SHOWER DAILY
If you take a shower daily, then your essential body oils from your skin and hair are washed away. Your hair and skin are not as hydrated appropriately.
#9. SMELLING YOUR PARTNER’S FART
The last thing you want to do is sniff a fart. But this practice has secret health benefits. A fart contains hydrogen sulfide, the gas that gives flatulence its repulsive smell. Researches suggest that it can help reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer and help stave off dementia.
Fidgeting can actually help you in burn calories. Wiggling in your seat, twirling with your hair locks or tapping your feet can help you in increasing your metabolism.
#11. DRINKING A LOT OF COFFEE
Coffee prevents a heart attack, helps you grow tall and is full of disease-fighting antioxidants. Need any more reasons to enjoy your daily dose of coffee. 3-4 cups of coffee are just fine for the day.
#12. MUNCHING IN ON CHOCOLATE
Chocolate contains a chemical compound called flavonoids, which can help in fending off all those critical illnesses, that is, everything from cancer to stroke. Who said chocolate was only made for lovers?
#13. SLEEPING MORE
Been sleeping while the alarm goes off? People might mock you for being a lazy cat, but in fact, sleeping in tune with your circadian/biological clock helps you to stay fresh and maintain the appropriate metabolism levels
#14. ALWAYS COMPLAINING
Not only does it help you in being realistic, but complaining is also good for your overall mental health. It helps you to vent out some frustration too. But don’t do it in excess. Sometimes, just keep your complaints to yourself.
#15. BEING MESSY
Taunted for being messy? Not to worry. It is in fact, a good thing. Being messy means you are way more creative than those people who live in an orderly fashion. Being messy also kills dust mites.
