But these aren’t the only ways you can cut your time on this earth short. Worse, you are likely to be unaware just how much you are hurting yourself. By making a few simple changes, you can improve your overall daily health and extend your life span.

These are the Top Ten Bad Habits that can steal years off your life.

1. Not Enough Sleep. Scientific research points to lack of sleep as the catalyst for many other health-related problems. Without an adequate amount of sleep your metabolism slows and you can gain weight. Fatigue also leads to eating for energy to compensate.
