Some morning habits can be very unhealthy and bad for your health and in today’s article, we will discuss 6 of them that you should definitely change if you recognize them.
You Get Changed In The Dark:
The journal PLOS One conducted a study which showed that if you keep your blinds closed when you wake up in the morning, you’re missing out weight-loss benefits provided by the sun. People who are exposed to the sun as they wake up have lower BMI than those who do not.
Skipping the Weigh-In:
the International Journal of Obesity conducted a study which found the more time you wait to weight yourself it is more likely to put more weight. That is why we recommend you to measure your weight every morning after taking a shower.
There is a reason for the popular saying that the breakfast is the most important meal of the day. According to nutrition and exercise scientist, Kathleen Alleaume, if you skip the breakfast the other meal of the day are disordered and you will suffer more cravings during the day.
You Don’t Make Your Bed:
As you know the little things in life matter so one of them is making your bed. In a study, scientists found that when you make your bed and sleep in a made bed there are 19% more chance to sleep better. Good sleep is associated with lower BMI, therefore, this habit can be related to your weight.
Too Much Coffee, Not Enough Water:
The first thing you should do in the morning is drink water because your body hasn’t been hydrated for 8 hours. It needs the water to rehydrate in order to flush out the toxins and for your organs to work properly. Drinking coffee before water, dehydrate your body and it only makes the situation even worse.
Hit the Snooze Button:
Oversleeping is usually associated with poor diets and weight gain, says Kathleen. She states that having low amounts of sleep can affect a person’s concentration which makes them more likely to eat junk food. But she also states that sleeping for too long can have the same effect because the body is unable to sync to the proper time. She adds that this can lead to issues such as blood sugar fluctuations and higher body weight.
