We all have them, some are good some, not so much.
We might have more than one, in fact I'm almost positive most of us have a few.
I thought it would be fun to blog about my own and then hopefully hear about yours.
1. Nail biting
Top of my list, it's horrible, I hate it, I've been doing it since the beginning of time, my fingers look ugly, they hurt & sometimes bleed. I'm embarrassed and quite conscious of them. I've tried everything under the sun to stop and I cant, oh wait... I haven't tried hypnosis. I have beautiful rings that I don't wear because I don't want to bring attention to my fingers, (not sure why I ever liked rings in the first place.) I'm thankful for latex gloves at work so my hands can be covered when Im starting IV's. My granddaughter is quite aware of my nail biting and announced to me one day, "Grandma your teaching me to bite my nails"...thankfully I'm a good example to her as to why she should never bite her nails, and she doesn't, but apparently I'm teaching her how to, ha ha.
I went to the dermatologist once to see if maybe I was lacking something in my diet, or maybe there was another health reason to be concerned about the condition of my nails. I basically got no help and was told that I have self destructing behavior....ugh, so I'm slowly self destructing, and I started self destructing at a very young age....shouldn't I be dead?
Enough about this horrible self destructing habit of mine and on to the next...
2. Chocolate/Raspberry Northern Lights Latte
It may seem like a costly habit to some. I do not consider this a bad habit, here's how I justify it...
First of all I enjoy this drink most mornings because... I can, and it's not breaking our bank account. I could be spending my money on way worse things and I consider my drink somewhat healthy, It's made with skim milk (so I get a milk serving for the day) and the flavored syrups are suger-free, so there....a healthy way to start my morning, paired with my (chocolate) protein bar!
I happen to have a little coffee buddy who likes to hit-up Caribou whenever she can with grandma, another bonus for me :)
3. Checking and resetting my alarm clock about 10 times (in a row) before going to sleep. Not sure if this is classified as a habit or a little OCD.... my friend Jackie Lea might have some thought on this one.
This actually drives me nuts, I know I set it right the first time, but I continue to recheck it over and over even though I know it's set right....ugh
I guess that's enough for now although I could really come up with some more, but I'll spare you. So come on now and share some of your habits (good or bad) with me.
