How to Get Up Right Away When Your Alarm Goes Off

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. When my alarm would blare its infernal noise, I’d turn the damned thing off right away. Then under the cloak of that early morning brain fog, I’d slowly ponder whether or not I should actually get up: 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… So how do you go from scenario one to scenario two?
