💡 More Info:
Most people are snoozers.
You probably had a sinking feeling in your stomach when you read today’s mission, didn’t you?
Snoozing is a habit that often has the opposite effect to what you might want. Very often, the more we snooze, the more tired we end up feeling.
The good news is that it’s actually a really easy habit to get out of.
But how can something that feels so good be so bad?
While you might think that hitting snooze will give you a chance to finish your natural sleep cycle and wake up feeling rested, that’s not what happens.
Your body actually prepares for waking up about 2 hrs before you usually wake.
When you snooze, you are throwing out a false alarm. After you hit snooze and drift off, your brain starts its sleep cycle all over again.
When the alarm goes off a second time, you’re likely at an even deeper, earlier part of your sleep cycle, which results in you feeling even worse than you did the first time.
Can you see how this is not cool?
So use today to get yourself prepared for jumping out of bed immediately tomorrow morning.
If need be, set multiple alarms that are 1 minute apart so that you don’t have the chance to hit snooze by accident.
Or put your alarm further away from your bed so that you actually have to get up and out of bed in order to turn it off.
Although this task may sound simple, it’s one of THE BEST quick-and-easy tasks you can do to improve your overall sleep hygiene.
Waking up at the same time each morning is key to building healthier sleeping habits and getting better quality sleep.
