I know just as the next person how tough it is not to look at your phone as soon as you wake up. I also know the snooze button wasn’t invented by the gods, hehe.
Extensive research has been done to show that both the bright lights of your small computer screen (aka your iPhone) and snoozing can cause a crappy start to your day.
For further points, check out the book The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins. She argues that counting backwards, like NASA does for a rocket to take off, 🚀 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 🚀 and then launching yourself out of bed can actually save you lots of anxiety in the mornings.
She also speaks about leaving your phone alone for the first hour after waking up. Why? Well, because the world is messy enough and we don’t need to accept other people’s negativity first thing in the morning – that can wait.
I dare you not to snooze for 7 days! Try to create a healthy morning routine that includes meditation/prayer, drinking water, and a skin routine (whatever you feel you need more of), and then see how different you feel. Maybe you’ll feel more refreshed.
Give it a try. If you’re hesitant on trying this method, use the countdown 🚀 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 🚀 and just do it!
