I love my mom, but she bothers me first thing in the morning.

I need to know how to keep my cool in the morning. I can feel tension in my head building up because right away she wants to bring the worst news of the day or brag about something or hovers insisting what I should do (even though I've heard her advice a million times) when I'm still trying to wake. She doesn't understand boundaries and don't think she'll ever will. She's my mom. So, what are some positive ways I can deal with this? Please note: I currently live on my own but same old problems when I come back to visit her.
