Waking up in the morning can be difficult a bi***!! Everything in the morning sucks... your alarm clock, waking up, having to get ready and start the day when all you want to do is stay in your big comfy bed.

The Huffington Post put together a list of 7 bad habits that people do in the morning which we need to break otherwise it sets the precedence for a not-so-good day.

Here are the morning habits that can ruin your day:

Hitting the Snooze Button

Seriously how many of us are guilty of doing this EVERY morning?! We all went that extra 5 or 10 minutes before we have to face the day but hitting the snooze button disrupts your sleep cycle. You also feel more tired as compared to if you just woke up right when your alarm went off.

Checking Your Phone Before Getting Out of Bed

In today's digital world it's hard not to check your phone to see if you have any missed calls, texts, e-mails, and of course, a swift check through your Facebook feed. However, research found that people who check their email more often are more stressed throughout the day compared to those who check it just 3 times a day.
As far as checking Facebook, don't do it because you'll compare yourself to your friends which can make you feel jealous or agitated.

Putting off Exercise

Exercising in the morning lowers your blood pressure and you also get better sleep.

Taking a (TOO) Hot Shower

My favorite thing ever! On the plus side, a hot shower increases your alertness but if its too hot it can dry out and irritate your skin

Eating a Carb-Heavy Breakfast

Empty carbs, such as a muffin, gives you short-lived energy and you'll be sleepy and hungry before lunch time hits. Skip the sugar in the morning and add protein and fiber to your diet.

Skipping Breakfast All Together

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for a reason. You'll have decreased energy and increased appetite as the day progresses. You're also likely to eat more calories later in the day.

Forgetting to Stretch

Muscles and joints can "stiffen" up overnight. Make sure to stretch those muscles out, and plus, not only will it increase your flexibility but stretching gives you an energy boost.
