Elizabeth Taylor once said, “The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they’re going to have some pretty annoying virtues.”
A life without a little irresponsibility is hardly worth living. After all, what’s the benefit of living longer if those extra years aren’t enjoyable?
It’s hard to go a day without reading about something that you’re doing that is slowly killing you. Diet soda, for example is now believed to be worse for your waistline than regular.
Every once in a while fate seems to fall on our side, however, and a study comes out validating our secret desires. That bottle of wine you polished off will do wonders for your heart’s health. Too lazy to hit the gym today? You’re just taking a rest day to allow your muscles to recover. Can’t kick the caffeine habit? You are just trying to prevent Alzheimer’s Disease.
Some of these studies might need to be taken with a grain of salt (not too much though or you’ll wreck your blood pressure) but reading them has a way of relieving the feeling of perpetual guilt that the media tends to instill upon us.
