If you’re like us, you’ve probably struggled with getting out of bed on time without pressing the snooze button, which we find quite insidious, as very few of us make rational decisions a few seconds after their morning alarm sounds. Here are some of the ways you can ensure that you’ll always be up once that pesky alarm sounds.
We’ve probably all been guilty of pushing that infamous snooze button on our alarm clocks or cell phones when we shouldn’t. Do it frequently enough and it can become almost an automatic reflex. Experience has taught me that while that extra 10 to 30 minutes might seem good, you’ll definitely be more productive and relaxed by using that time to get stuff done. Here’s how to avoid the snooze and lose pattern
In the past, because I fervently believe in Inbox Zero, I skipped on checking my inbox in the morning. I just didn’t have the time. In the last few months, I’ve modified my morning routine to allow enough time to check emails. The question is: should you check your email in the morning?
For some reason, my old cellphone, which I use as an alarm clock, kept changing the time, even though I had set it to the new time on Sunday. Must have been because of some internal DST option. Anyway, I got up at 7AM instead of 6:30AM this morning. That messed up my routine. I didn’t get to drink my tea and had to head into the shower immediately in order to get on the right bus.
