Do you constantly hit the snooze button before getting up in the morning?
If so, you are not along. According to one survey, more than 50% of respondents report to hitting the snooze button at least once each morning. 14% said they hit it three times a day.
We even have a special name for this attempt to try and squeeze in a few extra minutes of sleep, “drockling.” Not a very appealing word. Kinda sounds like the making of a book about a scary villain who just can’t get up in the morning. I’d call it “The Ugly Drockling.”
But I digress.
I recently heard about a genius way one woman has figured out how to avoid hitting the snooze button.
Each night she loads an embarrassing post or picture on her Facebook account. She schedules it to post at 6:35am. When her alarm goes off at 6:30, she has five minutes to jump out of bed and cancel the Facebook post. If she stays in bed and hits the snooze button, she takes the risk of not getting to Facebook in time and the embarrassing picture being released for her friends and family to see.
Given our love of Facebook, and our avoidance of being embarrassed, I’d say this is pretty good motivation each morning.
Might be something worth trying if you find yourself drockling each morning.
