7 Things To Stop Doing When You Wake Up

I do almost all of these lol...


Stop Hitting Snooze

Training yourself to actually get up when your alarm goes off is so worth it. Reason being, every time you hit snooze and drift back to sleep, you start a new sleep cycle that will be interrupted in a few minutes anyway. Since that cycle will end before it’s truly finished, chances are you’ll feel even more tired when you wake up for good. (MSN)

Stop Taking Long, Hot Showers

Long, hot showers are too relaxing for the morning. It  will lower your heart rate and make you feel way more ready for a nap than an energetic start to the day. Instead, take a shorter shower slowly making it cooler, that will prep you for the hours ahead.

Stop Drinking Coffee (First Thing)

No, not altogether. Just first thing in the morning. For most people, the ideal time to drink coffee is after 9:30 a.m. If you indulge in caffeine too early, you’re slowing your body’s natural cortisol production (which naturally wakes you up).

Stop Checking Emails

It doesn’t seem like there’d be any harm in a quick scroll through your new messages while in bed, but checking emails before you’ve gotten ready for the day is typically a waste of time—and a stressful one. Most attempts at “just checking in” morph into responding to things that definitely could’ve waited another 30 minutes, and getting worked up over everything you have to accomplish before having a chance to really wake up.

Stop Stressing Over Your Outfit

Fretting over what to wear is a massive morning time suck that can be totally avoided by just choosing what you want to wear the night before. And if you’re someone who dresses according to your mood, pull two outfits and go with whichever one you’re feeling more come 7 a.m. This one’s a game changer.
