Alarm goes off. “Five more minutes”. Snooze. Sleep. Repeat until you’re late.
Ignoring your alarm repeatedly creates a habit, and habits are hard to break. You start to ignore it more and more because you’ve conditioned yourself to do so. Even if you want to get up early, your subconscious is working against you.
Small snoozes quickly add up too – just 15 minutes each day sends 91 productive hours down the drain every year. That’s more than two working weeks you waste each year.
Knowing how to wake up early is only half the battle – to start your day the right way, you need to make it an automatic reaction to your alarm.
