I hated every minute that I snoozed…after I got out of bed.
But loved snoozing while I was in bed. And this is exactly why we do it. We love the feeling that comes after snoozing the alarm.
why we snooze:
Alarm Rings –> Snooze –> Feels good.
The reason why we snooze most of the time is probably because the first thing you do after you get out of bed is not exciting compared to the immediate gratification of falling back asleep. Leave a comment if I’m wrong.
What do you do right when you wake up? Do you already have a super-exciting thing you do every morning? Comment below! (If not, read on–maybe inspiration will come).
Again, let’s live the most fulfilling life that we may live.
NOTE: This is, of course, assuming you’re not physically exhausted with immense sleep debt. Your body does need to be loved and caressed by your snuggily-comfy bed. My reasons are to overcome the psychology of snoozing — which lay in procrastination, undesired lifestyle, unaligned goals, etc.
how to stop it:
Plan something that you will jump out of bed for when your alarm goes off. Something that excites you–gives you a rush of giddiness–something that jumpstarts your day.
Indulge in Prison Break or Spartacus marathon, or any other T.V. Show
Work for yourself on your own start-up with your best friend
Read that book you’ve been wanting to read
Make love to your girlfriend, boyfriend, spouse (granted they’re okay with you waking them) — p.s. I am not responsible for any morning attacks incurred 😉
Use Twilio-texts to achieve a shared goal of waking up at 6AM for one week.
Use Twilio-services to design behavior.
Find something that is better than the immediate gratification of snoozing.
Don’t have something that excites you that much?
Find it. Then add more of it to your life in moderation.
