    Default How do you describe this?

    Keeping irregular hours, having imbalanced diets, smoking cigarettes and not exercising regularly.
    How do you express these things in a few words?
    Thank you.

    This is often called living an unhealthy lifestyle, or leading an unhealthy lifestyle.

    Thank you for your responses!
    How about "neglect one's health" and "get a run-down"?

    "Getting a run-down" is what you end up with living an unhealthy lifestyle and neglecting your health ;)

    It can be also said a person enjoys detrimental habits :) I think so...
    Also 'health-damaging behaviour(s)' can be used to describe all these.

    Hope it helps.

    Curious Cat, thank you for your clear explanation and punchy expressions.
    Both "health-damaging behavior" and "a person enjoy detrimental habits" sound that the person is completely health-unconscious.
