I succeeded today only to find that my card key wouldn’t open the gym door. GRRRRRR oh well that is what workout dvd’s are for. 3 months ago

I have completely fell off the bandwagon with this goal. It is BAD! I am going to start fresh tomorrow. I have 47 days left until I move and I would like to have a routine down before then. 5 months ago
So far I have been successful with this 4/6 times. I think if I keep it up I will finally have a regular wake up routine and time.
It works best if I am genuinely excited for my morning workout. So my nightly goal is to amp myself up to master something during my morning workout. 6 months ago
All last week I put this into action and found that I could quite easily get up as soon as my alarm went off, just like I used to.
As getting up either on time or 10 minutes later doesnt affect my day at all as I get up way earlier than I need to to leae for work, I think I will just see how I feel on the day as to wheteher I get up instantly or stay in bed a bit longer. However its good to know that I still have the ability to jump out of bed within 10 seconds of my alarm going off. 6 months ago
I always without fail used to jump straight out of bed as soon as my alarm went off. I was the person who mocked those that had to hit snooze a hundred times. Since Ive graduated university and joined the world of the working, things have changed.
The time on my clock is like 30 minutes ahead and I tend to always wake up just before my alarm goes off because I panic about overlaying, due to the fact I am still tired and don’t want to get up in like 3 minutes, I set it 10 minutes ahead and get up then. This has developed into a bad habit even though it doesnt make me late or anything.
So I either need to get up when my alarm goes off, or bring my alarm time forward so I do end up getting up the original alarm time. We shall see which method works best. 7 months ago
It’s worse than ever.
It’s like my body just REFUSES.
Oh to live in a world without clocks! To awaken when it is natural and not in line with an arbitrary schedule. Life would be so grand! :P 7 months ago
This morning I snoozed my alarm for 55 minutes… it did not matter to me that I had work, or wouldn’t have time for breakfast or had a list of things that I needed to get done… each 5 minute snooze seemed more important than anything else I had to do today.
So… obviously this needs to change! Ideally I need to be up at 6am Mon-Sat and sometimes also on Sunday depending on shifts.
Maybe if I had a bedside light that I could turn on when my alarm goes off it would help me wake up? Well that can be attempt number 1.
Tomorrow I will buy a bedside light! 12 months ago
still struggling to do this. but i find it helps when i really want to do the things planned that day – say go to work or a planned meeting i can do it. maybe the trick is to always pre-plan what you’ll do the following morning, and make it good. I hope i’m right!
(3 years on and the word ‘struggle’ is still the first that comes to mind…) 12 months ago
but am not 100%.
It really helps when I STOP worrying about being late. It’s like I can relax and just BE. Then I can wake up & not feel PRESSURE.
I’m also trying to focus on the positives of the day, to feel a motivation to get out bed. 13 months ago
when my mom gets ready to leave for work (around 7-7:30) she lets bear in my room and leaves the door open. i have no choice but to get up because he will jump on me and run and steal my socks and that sort of thing… then i take him for a walk (bonus! bear gets his daily walk), get ready and go to work. it’s so easy to wake up when you have super cute doggie that’s really excited to see you, especially cuz if you leave him alone he’ll run off with your underwear and tear them up… 23 months ago
I’m on holiday now so I don’t need to set an alarm for a few months. i think i’ll call this one done for now. I am definitely getting better at it! 2 years ago
This week the challenge is to meditate when the first alarm goes off.
I’m enjoying getting up a bit earlier cos I have time to come here before I go to wrok. :-) 2 years ago
This one is going better right now. I’ve set my alarm clock for a better time, hitting snooze once and getting up (and by up I mean sitting up in bed…lets not push the boat out too far) to meditate. Once I’m done meditation, I’m outta bed for the day.
So far this has been going well (off and on, but mostly on) for about a month and a half.
The added perk is that I’m not spending as much time in bed being negative, mulling over problems and wondering why I can’t muster the energy to get up, yet I also can’t get back to sleep. These are the big problems of the universe.
Anyway, I think I’m now well on the way to getting this one more of a habit.
Next step, not hitting snooze at all… 2 years ago
I got a cat. I can’t sleep past the alarm any more even if I wanted to.
Some days I set a low cell phone alarm to wake me from a nap, and either I hear it or I don’t, but the loud blaring alarm going off for an hour is no longer part of my life. I save the loud alarm to go off once in a while, like if I really need to wake up early and wash my hair, or catch a flight. 2 years ago
For the next month I will get p when my alarm goes off.
Step 1: set a reasonable time for my alarm to go off :-)
Step 2: get to bed at a reasonable hour so I can still get enough sleep.
Step 3: get to the gym enough so I sleep better and have a glass of warm milk before I go to bed. 2 years ago
