    01/6Do you have any of these habits? Check now

    It’s said that it takes 21 days to form a habit, but certainly, it’s not true. As per recent studies, it takes at least 66 days for a new way of behaviour to become a habit. And it takes longer than this to break a habit. However, not all gross habits are really as awful as we consider them.

    02/6​Peeing while showering

    Not many of us would accept it but at least 75 per cent of people have peed while showering at least once in their lifetime. But there is nothing to be ashamed of as the uric acid and ammonia in your pee can help prevent the fungal infection in your toes.

    03/6​Eating chewing gum
    <p style=”text-align: center;”>As kids, we were always asked not to eat chew gum as it’s a bad thing. But turns out, chewing gum is not that bad a habit, in fact, it helps you more than caffeine. Chewing gum helps you focus, sharpens your memory, reduces stress and helps in balancing the hormones by raising the cortisol levels</p>

    We are all embarrassed to talk about farts and many of us even hold it in public places. But did you know that our body releases gas at least 14 times a day and around 3-5 time during the night? Farts are the result of our digestive system producing carbon dioxide and methane while digesting the food. Farts help to get rid of these gases. Holding the gas can trigger abdominal pain and bloating.


    Nothing feels as good and satisfying as a good burp after a huge meal. But suppressing it and keeping it inside can cause gas and even trigger chest pain. Burping helps relieve the air in our stomach. But if you are burping too much, consider meeting a doctor as it can be a sign of acid reflux disease.

    06/6​Biting your nails

    How many of you still bite your nails? Not many but we are sure some of you still do that. When you bite your nails, you consume the bacteria on them. This causes the immune system to produce WBC that helps fight the infections. Your body also registers the bacteria in its memory, so that when it encounters the bacteria the second time, you already have the lymphocytes to beat it.

    It is also said people who bite their nails or suck their thumb are less at risk of getting allergies.
