The biggest mistakes you make every morning that sabotage your day

Pressing the snooze button, looking at your phone, and not making your bed are among the top seven morning routine mistakes that can sabotage your day.

The experts at the Australian lifestyle company Wiring revealed how your morning habits can affect your mood.

While it can be difficult to get out of bed, it’s important to set up a routine to make sure the morning runs smoothly.

In many cases, it is necessary to establish a routine to avoid fatigue or insomnia.

1. Press the snooze button

Pressing the snooze button is a morning habit that many are familiar with, and according to the National Sleep Foundation, research shows that more than half of working adults hit snooze instead of immediately getting up.

While the snooze button isn’t a bad thing and can be used to stay in bed for a few extra minutes, it doesn’t provide enough time to complete a full sleep cycle.

If you’re constantly hitting snooze, you may feel less refreshed when you wake up.

To force yourself in the morning, place the alarm clock somewhere out of reach so that you have to physically get out of bed to turn it off.

2. Jump straight to your phone

Instead of going to your phone as soon as you wake up, you can choose to slowly wake up your body through meditation, reading, or sitting.

The morning is a great time to practice self-care, gratitude, and stretching to prepare for the day ahead.

Looking at your phone, accessing social media and reading the news can often put you in a bad mood that can affect the rest of the day.

3. Not organizing yourself the night before

A lack of planning can quickly turn the morning into a hectic mess, affecting your start to the day.

Whether you need to plan your work outfit, find your keys and wallet, prepare your breakfast ahead of time, or pack your work or gym bag, it’s best to do this the night before.

Without planning these little aspects, you could be sent in a hurry, leaving you with a feeling ‘grumpy’.

4. Don’t make your bed

While it’s important to air out your bed after you’ve slept in it, it’s just as essential to make your bed before going to work.

This little task will set the tone for the rest of the day by making you feel in control, and it means you’ll have a perfectly clean, tidy bed to relax on when you get home from work.

5. Not drinking enough water

Since our bodies are without water for several hours while we sleep, it is important to hydrate and drink a fresh glass of water soon after waking up.

This will help with digestion, metabolism and brain power, but failing to do so can lead to unwanted headaches and fatigue.

6. Keeping your blinds closed

The experts said that one of the first things to do after waking up is to open the blinds.

“Exposure to natural light is one of the easiest ways to wake you up in the morning because it tells your body to stop sleeping,” the experts at Bed Thread wrote.

We need sunlight to keep our brains functioning properly.

If you can, keep the blinds slightly open to let in natural light and wake you up slowly as the sun comes up.

7. Not waking up at the same time every morning

Getting up at the same time every day, even on weekends, ensures that you wake up rested.

Sleeping more than two hours longer than your normal wake time can make you feel sluggish and lead to insomnia.

The experts recommend setting an alarm during the week and sleeping in an extra half hour on the weekend.
