283 Bad Habits (The ULTIMATE List of Bad Habits)


Bad Grooming Habits

If you have any problems attracting the opposite sex, and have any of these bad habits, you may be circling a major part of the problem. Hygiene is an important part of our social norms.

For those of us who are married, it may seem easier to just “let ourselves go” and not worry about hygiene as much. But this is flawed thinking. Letting yourself go completely like this will cause friction in your relationship.

If any of these bad grooming habits sound familiar, you may want to make it a high priority to do something about changing these bad habits.

Toxic Relationship Habits

Many bad relationship habits happen between spouses or people who are dating. But I do not limit “relationship habits” to people in intimate relationships. These bad habits can also manifest themselves with your coworkers, peers, subordinates, and friends.

Consider anyone who you spend more than an hour a week with as having some sort of a “relationship” with you (even though it may be a hostile relationship).

Also consider the frequency of these habits before deciding if they are a problem. An example is jealousy. The green-eyed monster of jealousy may rear its head from time to time without being a “bad habit.” We all feel a little jealous now and again, but if you are frequently jealous, that is certainly a big problem.
