According to Joy Home Remedies, slipping into these bad habits could leave us feeling fatigued, tired and drowsy during the day. They might seem like meaningless routines, but starting the day well is vital for maximising productivity.

If hitting the snooze button several times is part of your morning wake up routine, now is the time to stop. It might help you gradually wake up, but it can leave you feeling foggy and tired throughout the day.

“If you hit the snooze button you can start a sleep cycle you are not able to finish,” the team told Mail Online. “As a result you feel even more tired. If you want to feel more energised, motivated, and more productive in general, then it’s time to ditch your unhealthy morning routine and cultivate some good habit.”

Other habits to slip out of include taking a hot shower, leaving the bed unmade and forgetting to stretch properly. Researchers also found that making your bed in the morning is linked to higher productivity during the day, claiming it can lead to the development of many more healthy habits.

Habits start innocently enough. Your kid has a booger in their nose, they stick their finger up there to get it out and they feel better. Over the course of a cold or an allergy season, if that finger up the nose brings relief enough times, it could turn into a habitual thing they do anytime they need comfort. Same goes for other habits, like nail-biting.

“One of the main reasons kids do these things is they’re self-soothing techniques,” says Caron Irwin, a child development and parenting coach and founder of Roo Parenting in Toronto. “They’ve learned that they make them feel good and provide comfort.”

That doesn’t mean you should let them go at it with abandon, because many habits aren’t exactly socially acceptable, while others can cause harm. But how do you actually get them to stop? Here’s help.

Nose picking

Why they do it

Kids pick their noses to meet a need—there’s something in there that’s bothering them! Over time, they may start to pick out of habit whenever they need comfort or when they are bored, like during screen time. 온라인카지노

How to handle it

First of all, don’t shame them—no matter how gross you think it is—because nose-picking is developmentally normal, says Michelle Ponti, a paediatrician in London, Ont.

If your kids are old enough to understand, you can have a brief conversation about how putting their finger up their nose and then touching other things spreads germs. Teach them that when there is something in their nose that needs to be dealt with, they should go to the bathroom and use a tissue to gently pick or blow. Some parents say that by making kids get up and wash their hands every single time they pick their nose, the behaviour stops, as kids don’t usually love leaving what they’re doing to wash up.

If your kids are too young to understand the germ risk, save that chat for later. Instead, be explicit about what you want them to do with their hands. For example, saying “Hands down” is more effective than “Stop picking your nose.” Give them something to hold on to, like a toy or a sippy cup, to keep their hands busy.
