Bad Habits Can Be Good For You

There are some things we have been told are bad for us that turn out are really the opposite.  Thank goodness I don’t have to give up my friends or chocolate!Some things that were once thought bad for us do actually have some health benefits.  Things like drinking wine, sleeping in, chocolate and coffee all have some health benefits; now of course these have to be done in moderation.  Sleep can boost your immune system and even help with weight loss, chocolate (especially dark) has antioxidants that help rid the body of toxins, and wine (red) is good for the heart and blood pressure.  My favorite is playing hooky or mental health days as they are called.  I think I will call in Friday and take one of those mental health days…they are days to just get away from the stresses of work and just relax and recharge.

There’s a reason it’s called a mental-health day. Studies confirm that time off—whether on a trip out of Dodge or a 24-hour staycation—relieves stress, lowering your blood pressure and your risk for heart disease. It also promotes creative thinking (attention, bosses!).

I don’t know if my bosses would agree with this but I volunteer to be the guinea pig!!
