...I hit the snooze 'just one more time' in the mornings.
Every single day.
I know it's terrible for me and you are supposed to get up the second your alarm goes off.
However, I am not one of those people. I have to ease into waking up.
Generally this means by snoozing and pursuing my phone (much to Mister's dismay).
Lately, I have been trying to force myself to get up earlier and quicker.
This is three fold...
For one, I have been diligent about my IT band stretches and exercises each morning which takes about 20 minutes.
Also work is bananas and I just simply need to go in earlier.
Thirdly, I am an adult and it is time to be able to get out of bed when my alarm goes off.
But also, if I have the time, I love to get things around the house done early in the morning.
It is quiet and peaceful and having a time crunch helps me get more done.
This is my weekend alarm clock...
Recently I have been trying to think of ways to maximize my time in the mornings while also getting the most out of my sleep.
So timely! That and a million other articles. (Anyone else get sucked into the rabbit hole of articles on Apartment Therapy?)
To their points...I am working on getting more sleep because that just makes sense. I need to be more diligent about putting the computer and Fire down and just going to sleep!
We do make it a point to make our lunches the night before. This saves all sorts of time. Not to mention money and calories by not being forced to eat out.
At all moments I have about 1 million to do lists going. It would probably help if I narrowed those down and prioritized them a bit.
Cleaning up! This is one I really try to do. I hate going to bed with dishes in the sink. I make it a point in the mornings to fluff our sofa pillows. It just makes me feel better to know our sofa looks the way it should.
So are you a morning person? Any tips for me?
