Whether you work early in the morning,  the "normal" nine to five, or are a nocturnal person - sometimes getting up can be difficult.  The bed is so warm, so comfy... your dreams were so nice.  The world seems so cold and harsh that it can definitely take some effort.

For me, when I was a kid, I would try to sleep as long as possible. I would hit the snooze alarm so many times it wore out.  I probably wore out the snooze button a few times in high school.

I've been getting up early for some time now - very early, in fact.  And it's gotten to the point now where I wake up sometimes before my alarm, look at the clock for a second, and debate myself on whether or not I should get up or just stay in bed until my phone starts beeping.

It seems to be the wrong time every time, like the most inconvenient way to wake up. My alarm is set for 4:15 a.m.  When will I wake up? 3:45 a.m.  Probably just early enough to barely get back to sleep before it's time for the dang thing to ring. So then, I have the debate with myself- do you just get up and get going, or do you try to get back to sleep, or do you just kind of lay there and think for a half an hour? Whatever I end up doing, it's never really that satisfying.  Most of the time I end up just thinking about what I have to do that day and waiting for the alarm.

I started to wonder about you guys and what your habits were like when you wake up as well.  Does it take much to get you out of bed and going? Do you have to do anything in particular to wake up?

Wakingly yours,
