Different individuals have different morning habits. There’s no one single morning routine that works for everyone. Some people have a hurried morning routine while for others they just like to lay on their bed and approach their morning with a lot more ease.
Having a great morning routine can make your day peaceful, can charge you up, makes you happy and gives you the power to work productively. On the contrary, waking up on the wrong foot can kill your motivation and will to work hard, it can kill your mood for the entire day.
Therefore doing the right things especially in the morning is a must. So avoiding silly mistakes can make your day peaceful and productive and also reduces stress.
Here are the five silly morning mistakes we tend to do without even knowing that is affecting our health.
- Checking Your Phone
The first thing people do these days after waking up is sliding their hand under their pillow, pick up their mobile and check what did they miss. They randomly scan their Instagram, Facebook and other social media platforms.
When you start your day by checking what you have missed and randomly scroll your social media feed, it hampers your fresh mind, it will damage your will power to work hard. Such habits will hamper your productivity.
Therefore such activities should be avoided after waking up in the morning.
This is a mistake which people tend to do without even knowing that it can cause health issues. People love to snooze 2 to 3 times before waking up. For example, when you have to wake up at 7 am, you set your alarm for 6:45 am to allow 2 snoozes.
This gives us relief that there is still a little more time to sleep. But we don’t know that this can cause damage to our heart. When the alarm snoozes for the first time it alarms our heart. So every time it snoozes there’s a little jolt in our heart it can later cause heart trouble.
So, therefore, setting the alarm to an exact time is recommended. When the alarm goes off wake up and get out of the bed, this is much more healthy.
- Skipping Breakfast
This is one of the mistakes that most of the people tend to do which is very wrong. Skipping any of your meal harms your health but when it comes to breakfast, it shouldn’t be skipped at all. It’s actually considered as the main meal of the day producing all the necessary calorie throughout.
I agree that most of the people don’t like to eat in the morning but the idea of skipping the meal is not beneficial. Breakfast should be rich in protein, carbohydrate and vitamins which provides energy to work hard the whole day.
Skipping the meal harms your health and you will not get enough energy to work productively.
- Skipping a Glass of Water
Drinking a glass of water is the first thing in the morning that we all should do. We have been sleeping the whole day our body is dehydrated, so drinking a glass of water helps to hydrate our body.
And we should keep our body hydrated which helps in digestion and metabolism. So avoiding to drink water is not a good idea.
- Having Sugary Cereals
Many People love to eat cereals, doughnuts in the morning with a glass of fresh fruit juice which seems to be healthy at a certain point but having it every day is somewhat not healthy because all of this items contain sugar in it.
If you have too much of sugary items in the morning you will find yourself fuzzy, it will put you in blood sugar roller coaster and end up in all day long.
These are the few mistakes people tend to do when they wake up in the morning without even knowing. So we have to get up from our extreme laziness to transform our morning schedule into a healthy one.
So approach the changes gracefully let our mind and body adapt the changes slowly.
