If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know it’s no secret that I dislike mornings. Or do mornings dislike me? Honestly, I’m not sure which way it goes – but I do have a love-hate relationship with the snooze button on my alarm. That much I can tell you.
But the Internet says it’s better to try and be a morning person (and who am I to deny the Internet). Some kind folk have put together pointers to make it easier, too!
Greatist does it with humour: Hey, Sleepyhead! How To Be A Morning Person (albeit a post trying to sell their book on the same).
Wikihow’s article made be laugh, though I’m pretty sure it wasn’t meant to… Be A Morning Person – with pictures!
Martha Stewart also chips in with her two breakfast-in-the-mess-hall cents.
One thing they all have in common: lose the snooze button!
Get up as soon as your alarm goes off – don’t loiter in bed whacking the heck out of your alarm clock.
Don’t need to get up just yet? Tough!
You have habits to break.
And it’s your own fault for not setting the alarm to later. Sucker.
Tomorrow – Monday morning – will be the official start to losing the snooze (button), with the intention of never using my snooze button ever again.
It feels a little like dumping a dead-end boyfriend. Things were comfortable enough before, but this decision… It just feels right.
