10 Things You're Doing To Sabotage Your Morning

The way you spend your morning is a good indicator of how the rest of your day will play out. With that in mind, Elite Daily has compiled this list of 10 things you’re probably doing when you wake up that are sabotaging the rest of your day. Here they are:

  1. You’re a slave to your snooze button. What you're really doing is "drockling," a sleep term for dipping in and out of sleep.
  2. You always skip breakfast. Breakfast jumpstarts your metabolism, boosts your energy and sets your body at equilibrium to allow you to tackle the day.
  3. You immediately surround yourself with noise. Skip the curated playlist and opt for some silence. 
  4. You don’t drink water. Drinking more water is the easiest way to cure a myriad of health problems. 
  5. You scan your social media news feeds. Even if the accounts you follow are "inspirational," they're not going to provide the same nourishment that actual activity would.
  6. You don’t make time for meditation. It can be as simple as 10 minutes of silent, uninterrupted breathing as soon as you roll out of bed.
  7. You don’t break a sweat. A little physical activity in the morning is a great way to jumpstart your mental focus, your metabolism and your productivity.
  8. You make too many plans for the rest of the day. Try holding off on filling your schedule so that you can give yourself time to decompress at the end of the day.
  9. You take a steaming hot shower. Cold water triggers mood-boosting neurochemicals that make you feel happy. 
  10. You only focus on short-term goals. It doesn't have to be daunting or stressful to think about what your plans are for the week, month, year, or beyond.
