Ok. I know there are a million and one strategies out there for starting your day “right.” I could easily name a dozen or so books that discuss this issue without even thinking about it for too long. And while I will touch on my own “Frankenstein” of a morning strategy from what I’ve learned, today’s video is about a much simpler morning routine that can make or break our day.
And that, of course, is pressing the snooze button!
Many of us have a love-hate relationship with the snooze button. It’s that magical button that gives you permission for another 9 minutes of sleep rather than getting up from your cozy bed. But, press it too many times? Or accidentally turn it off? Yikes. We are in trouble.
I’ll admit that I used to be a snooze button abuser. I’d press the snooze button over and over again for even as long as an hour. When I set my alarm in the morning, I always had to give myself room for a snooze buffer.
“Ok. If I need to leave by 7am, then I need to be up and getting ready no later than 6:15am. So if I press snooze two times, then I should set my alarm for 5:50am to give myself a few minutes to scroll Pinterest before getting out of bed.” Usually two times turned into three or four (ugh, or more), and then I was racing around like a madwoman still trying to get out the door by 7am. Can anyone out there relate?
Now, you’ll notice a few intentionally-used words in that paragraph: I used to be.
It’s true. I went from a total snoozer-abuser to dropping that habit altogether. And I pretty much did it cold turkey. If you can relate to my old routine, then you’re probably wondering how. Or more importantly, why?
And THAT’S what I’m covering in my video today. Once I heard the “why” (thanks to the amazing Mel Robbins), I realized that the snooze habit was just NOT for me. So, tune in, hear my “how” and the “why”, and then make the decision for yourself – how will you decide to start your day?
