Snoozing is a form of postponement
If you do not know why snoozes are so bad, and think it helps you wake up, I recommend that you read the article ” Why snooze so dangerous ” first and then return to this post.
Snooze does not differ from other forms of postponement, or procrastination . You consciously choose, or in the case of snoozes , often “conscious” , for not doing what is wise or good at the moment and getting up but pressing the snooze button to solve the problem – that annoying moment of getting up – still to be delayed.
Snooze solves the “problem” only
As with other forms of postponement, you are sorry for why it is justified to press that snooze button again. That you really need the extra sleep you need to wake up … Or simply you can get up if you want it, but you can also shower a bit shorter and have a quick breakfast. ” I do not like such a sentence yet. “
The time you are snoozing is no longer effective sleep. So if you need more sleep, snoozes are not the way. Then you have to put your alarm clock later or go to bed earlier. The motive that makes you more comfortable wakes up on all sides, because studies have shown that interrupting the sleep cycle every ten minutes only causes your bio rhythm to wake up and worsens your tiredness. But this is what you know right now.
Eat a frog
Brian Tracy, one of the founders and big names when it comes to self-development, provides a good advice for counteracting postponement in his best-known book called “eat that frog”. Eat a frog in the morning, then you can get fewer killers any more that day … a beautiful metaphor for the wisdom that can best start your day with the hardest task! And yes, for many people who snooze daily is getting up immediately when the alarm clock is going to be a difficult task.
Eat a frog in the morning,
then nothing can happen to you anymore
Now-I and Future-I
Our now-I should realize that you have no guarantee that your future-I will make all his good intentions. The only one that can get something for you is your now-me. He can eat healthy, go to the gym, bring someone bad news, or get up immediately when the alarm clock goes. If you leave your future-I have to wait for it. And no, it’s all not easy, it’s about making choices , making decisions … and the discipline to stay with your choices … to resist temptations. There is no room for doubt or ineffectiveness, then you will be delayed in the card.
The future-I do not guarantee
It is important that you are aware of your choices. Also, do not trust that you will do what’s good in the future, why do not you do it now?You now-I’m the only one who can get things together. Your future I do not guarantee. Remember this next time you press the snooze button. Choose yourself here, be aware, fine, but do not make yourself a clever wise that does not make any sense.
