If This Were Easy…

Not a real snooze…

Filed under: life, progress, snooze — Easy @ 10:54 am

Habits die hard.

This morning, I was already awake when my alarm clock went off, and specifically thinking about the no-snoozing challenge at the time. And yet, the radio came on, and I immediately reached over and smacked the snooze button.

And then thought to myself ‘Oh, shit! I wasn’t supposed to do that.’

So I got up right away anyway.

Obviously that’s not counting as an actual snooze, since I didn’t go back to bed for 9 minutes, but it’s still funny how even while actively thinking about not snoozing, the snooze habit is so ingrained that I did it anyway.

  1. Maybe it’s not about sleeping in. Maybe you just have your alarm set to a really, really horrible radio station? 😉

  2. Learned behaviour is really challenging to break, I’ve noticed… my morning routine is somewhat ingrained – the alarm goes at 7, I sort of lie in bed listening to the news until the sports is over, then get up and do my thing. Guaranteed to make me five minutes late for work. But, that’s what I do, and when I try to break it, it slowly moves back to that. =P
