Established routine. Our brains love routine. The more you snooze, the more ingrained that routine becomes. The more you wake up on first alarm, the more that routine becomes ingrained.


I turn my alarm off and pop out of bed as quickly and quietly as I can so I don’t wake up my wife or my three year old who still sleeps with us. Then I walk into the bathroom stare at myself in the mirror and contemplate calling in sick for twenty minutes.


My shift starts at 4am my alarm goes off at 3am. If I don’t get up immediately I’ll be late. If I’m late I’m fired. If I’m fired I won’t make rent, if I don’t make rent I live in my car.


I’m an adult with responsibilities. So, my alarm goes off and I get out of bed.


Going to bed at a decent hour usually helps.
