Old habits are hard to die, which is why we do some things without even thinking about how harmful they are, especially in the morning when we don’t have time to waste.
Do you drink a cup of coffee every morning or have cereal with milk for breakfast? These may not be the best ways to start your morning.
We wants to talk about 6 things that many of us do every morning that are really bad for us. After reading this article, you will learn how to make your morning and the next day better than ever.
Bad Morning Habits You Should Quit
6. Not Starting The Day With A Shower
Every day we are faced with a series of questions (related to work and others) that we are forced to answer throughout the day.
According to a Harvard doctor, a morning bath makes it easier for us to find solutions because it helps the brain to activate and is less likely to be distracted by external factors.
A shower allows the brain to generate new and unusual ideas. That is why you should never miss the opportunity to shower when you wake up.
5. Hot Showers
Since hot water has a relaxing effect, taking a hot shower in the morning will make you want to go back to bed. Taking cold baths in the morning has some benefits.
It helps you feel refreshed, stimulates brain activity, and makes your immune system work harder.
Coldwater, unlike hot water, does not dry out the skin, and according to scientists, people who take cold baths regularly can lose around 3.5 kg per year.
4. Check Your Phone For A Long Time
Social media is the main reason so many people log onto their phones first thing in the morning. How we spend the day depends on how we spend the morning.
That being said, stop wasting your time reviewing other people’s lives, reading their comments and opinions, and instead spend that time with yourself!
The same goes for checking your business email inbox, as this can extend your workday. You’d better put on your favorite music, spend time with the people you love, or make a tasty and healthy breakfast.
3. Wasting Time On Your Outfit
Have you ever spent hours in the morning wondering, “What the hell should I wear?” There is enough chaos in the morning that you don’t have time for, so don’t make things worse by looking for clothes.
To simplify your choice, reduce the variety of clothes you have in the closet. Apple’s Steve Jobs wore the legendary combination of jeans and a black shirt, not because he was saving money, but because he knew his time was precious.
Make a special area in your closet where you put only the clothes you wear for work. If you have a dress code that requires you to wear a black jacket and white shirt, keep only black jackets and white shirts in this area.
Check your wardrobe regularly and get rid of things you no longer use. Keep any clothes that are off-season in a different place as well.
2. Eat Cereal
A normal serving of cereal (50 grams) contains about 4 tablespoons of sugar. Too much sugar in the morning triggers an insulin infusion into your blood and, when the effect wears off, you get tired and lame.
Milk, yogurt, and fresh fruit when added to cereals are also unhealthy to eat in the morning, so it is best to stay away from them.
A famous nutritionist, Chelsey Amer, recently said that it is healthier to eat a slice of pizza in the morning than a bowl of cereal.
Pizza contains protein, fat, and carbohydrates, making it a balanced breakfast. However, it is important to remember not to eat more than one slice.
In addition to pizza, you can eat scrambled eggs, cottage cheese, or meat that doesn’t contain too much fat.
1. Brush Your Teeth After Food
After eating, the enamel on your teeth becomes vulnerable, especially if you ate the fruit, citrus, or drank soda because they contain citric acid and phosphoric acid.
Instead, you should rinse your mouth with water and floss your food debris. Try to brush your teeth only 30 minutes after eating any food.
We know that it is very difficult to quit bad habits at once. That is why it is better to abandon them one at a time. We decided to start by stopping checking our phones early in the morning. How about you?
