If you love your life, then your health should be important but in this fast paced society, we all look for the fastest, easiest, shortcuts to better health.

The following tips may seem kind of odd, but they are all habits that lead to bad health.

By simply changing just a few things, your health could change for the better.

Keep reading for the best shortcuts to better health…

1. Smoking

Smoking is one of the worst habits someone can have!

Not only is the smell horrifying to those who don't smoke, but it's harmful to the smoker.

Statistics show that for many, the time cut off their lifespan is equal to the time spent smoking!

Health problems from bad teeth, gum disease, breathing problems, lung disorders and cancer, infertility, and death are caused by the harmful habit called smoking.

2. Alcohol

While we're on the "harmful to your body" part of this article, I may as well include drinking alcohol to the list.

While the short-term effects of alcohol don't seem "so bad" the long-term effects are a different story.

Loss of brain cells, stomach ulcers, liver failure and cancer are a few of them.2

It's a very serious habit - addiction, more or less - that shouldn't be taken lightly.

3. Nail Biting

Seems innocent enough, right?

Wrong!

Nail biting is opening yet another door to harm on your body.

Aside from the sadly short nails, a nail biter faces the possibility of having infections in both the nail area and in the mouth!

The herpes virus has been found to spread from hand to mouth with this nasty little habit!

4. Late Night Snacking

I know, I know, it's hard!

I'm snacking right now on M&M's and Fritos, and it's 11 p.m.!

But working late on articles just seems to go so well with a snack!

(Same goes for movie night!) However, it's not healthy at all!

In all honesty, you shouldn't eat any later than 6 p.m.

in order to allow your body to completely digest your day's food, and go to bed on an empty stomach.3

It isn't good to lay down while you're body is trying to work.

Your body's functions, including metabolism, slows down at night, thus not totally digesting your food.

In the end, you will suffer heartburn all night long, and gain weight.
