8 Gross Habits That Are Actually Good For You

Published on May 21, 2018
There are some pretty gross habits we all have and can’t get rid of no matter how hard we try. Maybe those terrible habits aren’t that bad for you after all, and you don’t have to do everything possible to get rid of them? It turns out some disgusting things you probably do every day that are actually good for you!
Glamour magazine surveyed 1,000 women and asked them different questions, including whether or not they pee in the shower. Nearly 75% of the poll-takers confessed to having done it at least once in their life. It turns out no matter how gross it sounds, it’s actually good for you.
When we work out, we tend to breathe through our mouth, and this causes it to produce more saliva that interferes with normal breathing. So it’s perfectly fine to get rid of the excess mucus produced from exercising by spitting it out. Chewing gum helps you focus, sharpens your memory, reduces stress, and balances your hormones by raising your cortisol levels.
If you usually try to hold your farts in, you might wanna stop doing that. Holding the gas in can easily cause abdominal pain and bloating. Biting your nails helps your body register the bacteria you get off your nails in its memory bank, so if you encounter a certain strand again, you’ll already have the lymphocytes capable of beating it.
As you’re picking your nose and eating your boogies, you trigger your immune system to release white blood cells in order to defend itself against a certain type of bacteria. And there you go, your system comes out way stronger.
