How to Get Up Right Away When Your Alarm Goes Off
When your alarm wakes you up in the morning, is it hard for you to get up right away? Do you find yourself hitting the snooze button and going right back to sleep? That used to be part of my daily awakening ritual too. It’s nice and warm under the covers. Oh, I really should get up now. I should go to the gym. Maybe I’m trying to get myself up too early. I don’t have to get up right this minute, do I? I’ll bet my wife is toasty warm right now. [ Scootch… scootch… Zzzzzzzz ] Two hours later… Me: What time is it? Wife: Why do you keep setting your alarm if you aren’t going to get up when it goes off? Me: Oh, did you think that was my wake-up alarm? OK, so I wasn’t really intending for it to be a snuggle alarm. Fast forward to present day… My alarm goes off sometime between 4:00 and 5:00am… never later than 5:00am, even on weekends and holidays. But this time there’s no voice inside my head debating what I should do. So how do you go from scenario one to scenario two? Now how do you do this?
