What is your usual morning routine like? Do you dread the time the alarm clock rings, only to snooze it a couple of times and then go on to browse through Instagram and Facebook for a while before finally managing to drag yourself out of bed?

If this is relatable, you would agree that there are times you feel like you are wasting your time away.

If this is something of a 'routine' of sorts for you, we have some bad news for you. If you think submerging yourself in updates, photos or videos the first thing in the morning is recharging you for the day's chores, think again.

Most of us, unconsciously waste the first few hours of the morning doing negative things.

These habits are not just costing us our health but they are also taking a toll on our mental health. What you do in the morning sets the tone for the day ahead.

Sister Shivani, a popular motivational coach and positive speaker tells us a few ways these habits are actually costing us and instead, suggests a few swaps to make the first golden hour in the morning the most fruitful one.

Stop tuning into screens and gadgets, the first thing!

According to sister Shivani, our mental and emotional health is based on what we watch, read or listen to. With so much content readily accessible to us in recent years, people have started to consume too much content, which is bad and not qualitative at all.

Right from world news to songs, comedy or serials, you need to check what you are consuming. Hence, there is a dire need to make conscious choices with your lifestyle. If you consume aggression, criticism, it will reflect on you. It is a kind of emotional diet that you need to take in.

How to do that:

- First thing in the morning, keep away the phones. This is one habit most of us are guilty of doing.

-Morning time is supposed to be sattvic, which is a time to reflect.

-Learn this mantra- 'what I watch is what I become'.

-To be happy, you have to consume respectful, helping content.

-The key is to welcome positivity, allowing our minds to energize and reflect.

-Start by spending one hour on your body and mind-exercising and meditating daily.

-If you follow this, you will be ready to take on the next 23 hours and respond in the right way.

-If you do this, being happy will be very easy.

According to Sister Shivani, the same habit should be continued at night as well. One hour before you go to sleep, disconnect from technology.

If you consume too much content before sleeping, the mind will be thinking too much and not relaxing. So, one hour in the morning and at night should be the cut-off time, reserved for you.
