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. Askiguru wants to talk about eight things many of us do every morning that are actually harmful to us.


1. Checking your phone for a long time

Social media is the main reason why so many people spend so much of time on their phone in the morning. The way we spend the day depends on how we spend our morning. So stop wasting your time checking in on others’ lives and instead, spend this time on yourself!


2. Not starting the day with a shower

A morning shower makes it easier for us to look for solutions because it helps the brain become active so it helps us to think new ideas and it less likely to become distracted by outside factors.


3 . Hot showers

Though hot water has a relaxing effect, taking a hot shower in the morning will make you want to crawl back into bed. Taking cold morning showers makes you feel refreshed, it stimulates brain activity and makes your immune system work harder.


4. Wasting time on your outfit

To make your choice easier decrease the variety of clothes you have in your closet. So what you can do is rather than having many colorful clothes in your wardrobe you can have black and white which would save a lot of time early in the morning. 



5. Brush your teeth after food

What you should do is, instead of brushing your teeth, wash your mouth with water  and remove the leftovers of the food with dental floss beacuse you can brush only after 30 mins from the time you consume food.


6. Drink black coffee

Black coffee right after waking up makes your cortisol levels high which leads to anxiety. And if you drink coffee when you’re hungry, you can get gastritis. However, if you can’t resist drinking coffee in the morning, add a little milk or cream to it this will have less effect on your stomach.


7. Eat cereal

A famous dietitian, Chelsey Amer, recently said that it’s healthier to eat a slice of pizza in the morning than a bowl of cereal. Pizza contains proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, making it a balanced breakfast. However, it’s important to remember not to eat more than one slice.


8. Make the bed right away

When you make your bed right after you get up, you create a good environment for dust mites, because the moisture that your body left on the sheets doesn’t have a chance to evaporate. Scientists recommend completely moving the blanket from the mattress after you wake up to let the sheets dry.


We know that it’s extremely difficult to give up your bad habits all at once. That’s why it’s better to give them up one at a time. We decided to start with giving up checking our phones first thing in the morning. How about you?
