Are you struggling to stay out of bed in the morning once the alarm has gone off? I know the feeling, total drowsiness and heading straight back to sleep...
I know it's comfortable! But with some focus you'll be able to overcome this negative pattern quite quickly.
Let me present what I call "The Inverted Snooze". Also known as "The 9-Minute-Rule".
The core principle is...
If you manage to stay out of going back to sleep for the next 9 minutes (one snooze cycle) after your alarm rings, then your chances of staying up and having an energetic morning will literally skyrocket !
So all you effectively need to do is to stay out of bed until your alarm snoozes for the first time. That's why I call it The Inverted Snooze - instead of sleeping for another 9 minutes, we avoid sleeping for these 9 minutes.
I will try to help you on your way to accomplish this, but first a few words on why this principle actually works:
With these reasons in mind, let's get into to how to do The Inverted Snooze (including what not to do...).
First, just get out of bed and turn off the alarm. Then follow these simple guidelines for the upcoming 9 minutes:
After 9 minutes your alarm will ring again and you've made it ! You're still up and I bet that you're energetic enough to stay out of bed.
So with all these reasons as well as ways to do it I encourage you to really put The Inverted Snooze to the test. If you're even struggling to get started, then I highly recommend you too look into how to practice to wake up in the morning.
Now I wish you the best of luck! And for any further questions, I'm always right here to help you sleep well, wake up early and have a great morning =)
