Practical "Dos" And "Don'ts" For A Healthy Morning Routine
November 30, 2017
The start of each day is a new page in each person's life. Unfortunately for most, the morning starts with an alarm clock and thoughts that often aren't terribly pleasant, and which set the tone and mood for the day. When we wake up, we almost immediately plunge into the day's routine of work, making mistakes, and by our own doing, making our already-high stress levels skyrocket.
The simplest way to solve this problem is to rid yourself of some bad habits and acquire a few new ones - habits that can make even the most depressing Monday morning bright and happy.
So let's start with some small things - specifically, 11 things that aren't terribly harmful, but should still be eliminated from your life.
1. Don't ignore the alarm clock.
Everyone is familiar with the feeling of wanting to shut off the alarm clock and sleep just ten more minutes. And many remain in a state of morning drowsiness, trying again and again to put off the moment of fully waking up.
Have you noticed that after playing this kind of game with yourself, you feel even more tired? This is the result of intermittent sleep, which has a negative effect on the body. Once you know how much sleep you need to feel fully recharged, set your alarm for a time when you won't be tempted to keep hitting the snooze button.
