Are These Habits Really Bad?

By Sara Butler

Playing by the rules all the time can be boring. Sometimes, it’s perfectly OK to buck convention and do something that is generally considered “bad.” Usually, it’s not going to be kosher to stay up having arguments in 140 characters or less on Twitter until the wee hours of the morning or to binge drink. However, there are some things that are considered “bad” that you can get away with every once in a while!

Netflix and Chill

So, becoming a couch potato is a no-no. However, it’s perfectly acceptable to binge watch “Game of Thrones” or another favorite show sometimes. Getting wrapped up in a different world and escaping reality for a few short hours is good for your well-being. You can let the worry and stress melt away. The only thing you need to do is to view binge watching as beneficial and not pointless. Revel in its stress-relieving benefits instead of feeling bad about it.

Having What You Crave

You know highly processed snacks such as candy bars and potato chips aren’t good for you, but you also shouldn’t deprive yourself. If you’re craving something that you normally don’t touch, it’s OK to give into and have a reasonable amount of it. Otherwise, you’ll eat a million other things instead of having what you really want – before you end up eating it in the end!

Giving in to Anger

Sometimes it’s OK to just give in to the anger and channel your inner Bruce Banner. In fact, being angry about something will often motivate you to take action and change your circumstances, helping you to regain a feeling of control over something that makes you mad.

Expressing angry feelings can also help to strengthen your interpersonal relationships – as long as it’s done constructively, that is. Being honest about being angry can help to improve the relationship with those around you. Just make sure not to yell the first thing that pops into your angry mind – remember that whole constructive thing. And don't do anything that'll get you arrested -- breaking the law won't help relieve stress!

Taking a Break from Exercise

Regular exercise is important but it’s also important to give yourself a break before you burn out. One or two rest days per week gives your body time to recover, so make sure you give it that! When you return to your workout, you’ll feel refreshed and ready to hit it hard!

Sometimes you have to let it all go in the name of health! So don't be afraid to break the rules from time to time.
