4 Thing We Are Guilty Of Doing in the Morning

Published

on

Most of us with full time jobs neglect the necessity of a good morning routine. You can’t deny the fact that we usually wake up last minute, running around our rooms like maniacs and rush to work. We unapologetically commit so many mistakes each morning that is completely unhealthy to us.

Here are 4  things to avoid doing in the morning:

Hit the snooze button over and over:

We know too well the temptations of the snooze button, this invention tricked us into believing that 10 more minutes of sleep is such a good idea. However, snooze button might be doing you more harm than good. You might think that sleeping for extra minutes will make you wake up more refreshed, while reality is you trick your body into a new sleeping cycle that waking up from it after few minutes can make you feel groggy instead of refreshed.

Checking you phone:

We are all guilty of doing this. I don’t exactly know the reason behind this habit specially that probably the last thing we do before going to sleep is checking our phone and scroll through different social media platforms at least twice; so, I don’t get what you could possible miss during sleep. Checking your phone the first thing in the morning can cause stress and sets your day off to a negative start.

Coffee first:

Coffee should not be the first thing that enters your body after waking up. What your body actually needs is water; after sleeping for 7 or 8 hours, your body becomes hydrated. Make sure to drink water that has the same temperature as your room; as drinking colder water first thing in the morning shock your system and prevent all the possible benefits.

Skipping Breakfast:

Let’s just agree that having two cups of coffee in the morning is not considered breakfast. It is true that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even if you are one of these of people who aren’t very hungry in the morning, make sure to grab a fruit, yogurt or some oatmeal. Some studies show that having breakfast can prevent diabetes, heart disease, and improve performance and memory.

You Can Now Tweet Your Questions to the Ministry of Health

You can now have all of your questions regarding the novel coronavirus answered via Twitter, as Egypt’s Ministry of Health & Population has announced a partnership with Twitter to launch an awareness campaign that provides accurate information on the pandemic.

The campaign, called 19اسئلة_كوفيد#0020, will allow us to tweet our questions to the ministry’s official account (@MOHPEgypt) using the hashtag 19اسئلة_كوفيد#.

 

Questions will be answered every Tuesday by the ministry, spokesman Khaled Megahed said.

“The ministry joined Twitter in January to maintain an open channel of communication with citizens on the ministry’s latest health services,” Megahed said.

“Twitter’s expanded rules require people to remove tweets that include denial of health authority recommendations to decrease someone’s likelihood of exposure to COVID-19 with the intent to influence people into acting against recommended guidance,” he said.

Moreover, Twitter will be responsible of deleting any false or misleading information as not to spread fear or any misguidance to citizens.

“Protective measures which are known to be ineffective and are not applicable to the COVID-19 context, and denial of established scientific facts about transmission during the incubation period or transmission guidance from health authorities, among others,” Megahed explained.

Again, we’re very proud of all the strict measures taken by the government to ensure limiting and eventually ending the spread of the virus.

The Not So Small Things to Appreciate During and After this Quarantine

Published

on

By

We understand how this quarantine must be affecting your mental health, it is hard after all not being able to embrace the ones you love. Social distancing has surely taken its toll on all of us, but one thing this quarantine has blessed us with is the power of gratitude.

Gratitude and appreciation to what we have at the moment and to what we once had but had taken for granted! This quarantine has given us the time to reflect on ourselves and many things in our lives, it has made us discover hidden talents and allowed us to see the beauty of the not so small things.

We have narrowed down some of the things you should appreciate more during and after this quarantine, with the hope that it gives you hope…

During the quarantine, appreciate:

That You Have A Shelter and A Home

Appreciate the fact that you have a house and a family that makes it home, appreciate that you can afford to stay at home without any worries. We all need a safe haven and we’re all lucky to have one.

Your Family

Appreciate the quality time that you finally get to spend with your family! We have all become so busy with our lives and it isn’t slowing down for us to enjoy some quality time with the family. But this quarantine has blessed us with the opportunity to strengthen the family bond and appreciate their existence even more.

Yourself

Yes, take this time to appreciate yourself and work on your goals. Only if you feel like it! If you don’t have the will and power in you, that’s okay too. But try to take advantage of this time to reflect on all of your choices and make sure that you’re on the right track. If you have doubts, don’t be scared to take a reroute.

Your Hidden Talents

We have all certainly discovered new things about ourselves and dug up some hidden talents, what did you discover? That you’re a talented chef? Or maybe that you can dance or sing? It might be as simple as discovering that you’re good with Tiktoks!

Your Mental Health Capabilities

Yes! Appreciate your mental health capabilities and that it’s helping you stay sane during this tough and stressful times. Others are drowning in overthinking and anxiety, so be thankful for having the power over your mind.

Now, time for the not so small things that you should start appreciating more after this quarantine is hopefully over… 

Social Gatherings

Remember that outing you didn’t feel like going to? Or that family gathering you ditched to stay at home? After the quarantine is over, take the time to see all those you care about, feel the bless of being able to hang out, hug them and just enjoy the feeling of safety and security.

Human Touch

Now, when you see someone you haven’t seen in a while, you run towards them, you open your arms and then you suddenly pause, stop and remember that you can’t even handshake them! We’re currently denied from expressing life’s simplest signs of affection, so when this is over, we should appreciate the human touch even more.

Your Job or School

Having something to wake up to every morning is a bless, having a purpose in life is worth waking up to even if some days, you feel like staying in, remember that feeling you have now and appreciate the beauty of having something to attend to everyday.

Every Single Profession

From the incredible doctors who are currently risking their lives for our own, to the delivery men, the customer service, the cashiers! Every profession matters and from now on, you should appreciate them more and never think less of anyone’s else profession…

Your Favorite Hangout Spot

We often go out and we never realize how precious are our usual hangout spots, we think that it’s boring having to go to the same place, when all that actually mattered is having a place to gather in with our loved ones. So don’t think routine is boring, routine can be comforting at times.

To cut it short, appreciate every handshake, every hug, every kiss, every meal out, every cinema night and every time you step out of the house feeling safe and not paranoid.

After all, we truly are blessed in so many ways ‘and it shouldn’t have taken us a pandemic to realize that…’
