Stop Hitting the Snooze Button

The most tempting thing you have to face each and every day: the infamous snooze button. Just another 5, 10, or 15 minutes of sleep which people actually have come to believe will make a difference. People have actually become addicted to hitting the snooze button and have adjusted to a routine where hitting the snooze button once, twice, or six times is just part of their morning schedule. This is unhealthy and there are other ways to solve this problem.

1. Change your schedule – If you are used to 6 hours of sleep, then try to sleep those six hours half an hour earlier. Also, try to avoid any distractions too near the time when you are planning to fall asleep. Television, reading, playing computer games, etc. keep your brain active and will make it more difficult to fall asleep right away, thus making you more tired in the morning.

2. Move your alarm clock – You have probably heard this one before, moving your alarm clock across the room (even for a short period of time) will help you to be motivated to get out of bed to turn off your alarm clock. Once you have gotten up and moved across the room to turn off your alarm clock, stay standing. Avoid sitting down for 10 minutes after you have woken up. If you normally have a shower in the morning, try to wake yourself with a cold blast (as unpleasant as this may sound, it helps).

3. Get into a powernap routine – Having a short 30 minute to 45 minute nap is just as rejuvenating than two hour nap. In a normal 6 to 8 hour sleep period your body gets approximately an hour and a half of REM sleep. This kind of sleep is what keeps your brain sharp. Although REM sleep is usually stage 5 of sleep, you can force the REM sleep stage during nap time if you have scheduled short naps. Getting your body into this mode is very difficult but once you adjust it is worth it. The extreme method of this is called the Uberman’s Sleep Schedule.

4. Eat breakfast – Yes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. How can a flashlight work when there is no battery? It is the same for your brain, if you consume no food (energy) you cannot function optimally.
