I love and hate the snooze button on my alarm clock at the same time. I love the extra sleep I get in the morning but I know it’s not good sleep and it’s not actually providing me with valuable rest. I can’t help it. I set two alarms, and when those go off, I half wake up and I set another alarm on my phone. If only I got enough sleep in the first place. I’m sure this isn’t something that is unique to me. I’m sure other people get caught up in the allure of the snooze button. It’s probably just a sign for me to go back and read this post by Leo Babauta on The Most Successful Techniques for Rising Early. It’s not about rising early for me…I just want to convince myself to get enough rest and have the willpower to overcome that snooze button!
How do handle resisting the snooze button? Do you have a morning process that gets you excited to get out of bed in the morning?
