Stop Hitting Snooze & Rock your Morning Routine
It’s not about “when” you wake up, it’s about “how”. I am not a morning person so I had to train myself to be. Join our free Talk with Trina Tribe. We go above and beyond in our Live Sessions here. Take notes and enjoy this incredible free training.
Note Your Starting Point to Track Your Progress
- What time to you go to bed?
- When do you wake up?
- Do you feel rested upon waking *almost everyone on our live said NO!
- List what your morning routine is right now: do you grab your phone, start scrolling, turn on your work, be honest!
- Do you wake with an alarm or naturally?
Stop Hitting Snooze
What you do for your morning sets you up for the day whether you are productive, happy and energized. If you listen to NOTHING else I say, listen to this and get your morning right.
Science Behind the Snooze Button
If you wake up, hit the snooze button and doze off for a few minutes, your brain is not functioning properly for four hours due to sleep inertia.
We sleep in approximately 60-90 minute cycles. For about two hours before your wake, your brain is getting ready to wake up, be productive, alert and energized.
When you hit snooze for a few extra minutes, what does your brain do? It goes back to sleep and starts another 60-90 minute sleep cycle. You drift off and the alarm goes off and now your brain is not alert and functioning as it should.
To “shock” yourself out of sleep inertia get in a really cold shower. It will shock you out of it. Better yet, train yourself to stop hitting snooze.
How to Stop Hitting the Snooze
You are bigger than your excuses. Hitting snooze is an excuse. Getting up is the first decision you make for the day and everything will get better when you stop this habit and get up.
#1 Plug your Phone or Alarm out of Reach
Try this for 14 days. Make it so you must get out of bed to hit the alarm.
#2 Five, Four, Three, Two, One Out of Bed
The 5 Second Rule is by Mel Robbins. This doesn’t work for me but has for tons of people. You count backwards from 5 to 1 and once at 1, get up. That’s it, you tell yourself “get up.”
#3 Top 3 and Count Three, Two, One
This is what I do! Schedule your Top 3 every night before bed. This is three things that will bring you joy and get you closer to a bigger goal. For example, lose 20 pounds, get to bed earlier, work on a small project, knit, read, walk, etc.
When I’m exhausted, comfy and I don’t want to get out of bed, I think about my Top 3 and I get excited. Then I say, 3, 2, 1 get up. The five and four are too much for me, I will just go back to bed.
Stress and emotions can play a BIG part in exhaustion and waking. Check this out.
