We wants to talk about eight things many of us do every morning that are actually harmful to us. After reading this article, you’ll learn how to make your morning and the day that follows better than they ever were before.

1. Not starting the day with a shower

Every day we face a series of questions (both work-related and others) we’re forced to answer throughout the day. According to a doctor from Harvard, a morning shower makes it easier for us to look for solutions because it helps the brain become active and less likely to become distracted by outside factors. A shower allows the brain to generate new and unusual ideas. This is why you should never miss the chance to have a shower when you wake up.

2. Hot showers

Since 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 has a few advantages. It helps you feel refreshed, it stimulates brain activity and makes your immune system work harder. Cold water, unlike hot water, doesn’t make the skin dry, and according to scientists, people who take a cold showers regularly can lose about 9 lb a year. Show More >>>
