If you’re like me, you find it difficult to leave your cozy bed every morning when your alarm goes off. Even if you’re a morning person, you can’t deny that staying under the covers for even just a few more minutes can be pretty darn tempting.

The bedis the comfiest place in our homes, so it makes sense that we’d want to spend as much time stretched out and relaxing on the mattress as possible.Of course, that can also lead to some bad habits when it comes to keeping germs at bay and maintaining a healthysleep cycle.

For instance,tons of people swear by falling asleep to the sound of their TV playing sitcoms or listening to the radio, but they could actually find a more sound night’s slumber by unplugging those devices at the end of the day.

I know I’m guilty of way too many of the examples listed below, but I’m definitely going to try to nix them from now on.

1. Wearing Pajamas

1.

Going au natural at night can not only be more comfortable, but it can surprisingly help you burn a few more calories as you rest.It can also make you feel way less stressed and more refreshed when you hear your alarm start to buzz in the morning.

2. Forgetting A Fresh Pillow Case

2.

If you have skin problems like acne, your pillowcase is probably not helping matters. It’s so easy to go weeks or even months without switching those and your other sheets out, but the buildup of skin cells, oil, and other nasty bacteria could be the root ofmany of your cosmetic issues.

3. Sleeping With Makeup

3.

This is something I have to admit I do all the time. It’s just so easy to relax for a few moments in bed and then suddenly you’re out for the night without removing your cosmetics, leaving behind nasty stains and germs on your sheets.

Keeping some makeup remover wipeson your bedside table can help curb this all too common habit.

4. Kicking Out Your Pet

4.

There are studies that prove having your favorite four-leggedfriend snuggled up with you helps put you more at ease and able to fall into slumber.

Obviously, it’s up to each owner how they feel about letting their fluffy pal take up some space on the bed, but it’s good to be informed on both sides of this particular question.

5. Letting The Kids Crawl In

I know it’s hard to say noto your little kiddo’s sweet face when they make their way in between your sheets in the wee hours of the night. But considering the age of those who are most prone do this and their level of potty training at said age you are definitely in store for a ton ofgerms, possible bed wetting, or diaper surprises making their way onto your side of the bed, too.

6. Cuddling With A Sick Spouse

6.

You might want to be there to take care of them or simply want to stay in your own bed, but you’re running a huge risk of catching the very same germsand perpetuating illness in the home when you crawl under the covers with your partner who’s suffering from a cold.

7. Finishing A Fight In Your Mind

7.

I know I come up with my best rebuttals to arguments I had during the day at the worse time when I’m trying to fall asleep andmy mind is running in circles with everything Ishouldhave said.

It’s better to just let those thoughts rest. Chances are, you’ll wake up realizing how silly the tension was to begin or have a clearer mind on how to get your point across.

8. Working On A Project

8.

I can’t lie, I have donethis on too many occasions to count, but I can also genuinely see a difference when I set a timer for myself to put all of my work aside before settling in under the covers. I also try not to use my computer in bed at all and make sure my brain only sees it as a place for sleeping.

When working late into the night while in bed, you’re not onlyoverexerting your brain when it needs to rest, but you are most likely not performing well enough to complete those tasks and will only end up having to do them all over again the next day anyway.

9. Sitting Your Purse Next To You

9.

Or backpack, suitcase, or anything other than a pillow or blanket, really.

Walking around with those items all throughout your day can cause them to collectan amount of germs that make your toilet seat seem like the most sanitary place in your home.

10. Hitting Snooze On The Alarm

10.

Believe me, there is pretty much no one more reluctant to wakeup than yours truly, but what are you really gaining by giving yourself those minuscule increments of extra slumber?

The answer: what is proven to only beextra frustration when you finally force yourself out from under the covers.

11. Eating Under The Covers

11.

I’ve had my fair share of midnight snacks in bed only to wake up to crumbs and morsels stuck in places where, well, they really should not be.

Not only that, but your sheets will absorb all those germs and potentially attract pests like bugs or mice to take residence with you while you sleep.
