Waking Up Earlier Part 2


A short time ago, I wrote about trying to teach myself to wake up earlier than I normally would. Not being a morning person, I knew this would be a very big challenge.  Of course, almost immediately after deciding to do this, I was punished with death flu and stayed in bed for a solid week with fevers and sweating and misery. Needless to say, the concept of waking up on regular schedule went completely out the window.

But I am back at it again. This last week I have been having my alarm go off around 7am every single day. I managed to snooze my way through it for most of the week, but the last few days , including a saturday and a sunday amazingly enough, I have actually gotten out of bed. I am as surprised as anyone that I would get out of bed at 7am on a sunday without having something to do. Amazing.

I will likely take a long nap this afternoon , but that is ok. As long as I keep getting out of bed in the mornings, I will allow myself the naps to make up for it.

If I can go the next week getting up at 7:00 consistently, then I will push the alarm back to 6:45 and do that for a week. Then to 6:30. and so on.

Glad to see that you are feeling better.
Ok so how early are you trying to get up?
If you push back your wake up alarm... it may be waking you up before you go to sleep... ;)
