Make It Work With This Little Trick

Put The Alarm Clock Far Away

Put the alarm clock far away from your bed and you have to wake up. It sounds pretty simple, right?

And yeah, it's a classic trick to wake up in the morning. But that doesn't mean it's as simple as that. Actually, there's a bit more to it - let me explain.

Sure you will get up, but what actually happens to people that continue to use this technique is that they find themselves jumping back into bed. Yeah, it's true! You're up, but what to do next?

"Shower? Aah, I don't know. Breakfast? It's just so hard to make it! Exercise? But I'm tried."

"Aah well, why don't I get back to bed and think about it..."

You don't want to end up like this, therefore it's critical that you have a plan for the next step. And I mean the absolute first thing you will do after turning off the alarm. It could be to

  • Go to the toilet
  • Turn on the light
  • Get out of the bedroom
  • Go get the newspaper
  • Turn on your computer
  • Go find your cat
  • Etc. etc.

Well, anything frankly. As long as you stick with it every single day. You have to program it into your mind so you don't have to think anymore. Then you'll just


Whatever you do, don't go back into bed.

So feel free to put the alarm clock far away as long as you can hear it enough to wake up. Actually it can be pretty good to not have it straight in your ear. That might give you a more gentle wake up.

But remember, make sure to do something right away you wake up.
