3 Things Men Should Avoid Doing in the Morning

things men should avoid doing in the morning

These are things men should avoid doing in the morning. Some are not specific to just men, while others are strictly for men only. You’ll figure out which is which when you get to it. Here we go.

1. Don’t Arrive at Work at the Same Time as Everyone Else

Try to arrive at least 30 minutes before the stampede. This simple goal is more than meets the eye.

For one, it means you’d want to get out of bed right away instead of hitting the snooze button several times in a row. It also means you should skip checking your emails. Save it for the time when you’re at the office before most others.

Besides checking your emails, you can use this time to have coffee, relax, and do whatever you have to do to get in the right state of mind for the workday ahead.

You also might get noticed, as this happens to be the habit of superstars. Tom Brady routinely arrives at training camp a few days early and Michael Jordan was the first to arrive at practice and the last to leave.

2. Don’t Skip Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Your body’s fuel reserve is depleted after a long night of rest. A hearty breakfast is a supercharger for the day ahead. It will boost both energy and mental clarity.

You can have sweet and greasy food for breakfast without gaining weight, as long as you don’t overdo it. This is because the body is so depleted that it will convert the food to energy instead of storing it as fat.

3. Don’t Do Anything about the Morning Erection

For many men, this happens often enough if not every morning. Don’t do anything about it and it will just go away.

This practice started over 2500 years ago when Plato advised Olympic athletes to avoid sexual activity before races. Although science has not proved conclusively that sexual activity saps your energy, it is true that it will blunt your drive and competitiveness for a period of time. (This is not applicable to women, to whom it might even be beneficial instead of detrimental.)

This concludes our things men should avoid doing in the morning.
