We all aspire to be punctual and disciplined. Yet, whenever it comes to waking up in the morning and setting up a goal, we end up hitting the snooze button. Hitting it with such a pride as if it was the most beautiful thing ever. But what if I told you that even a glorious snooze button cannot be taken for granted?

Yes! Each night, when you set your alarm for the next morning, you end up making a promise to yourself. You are saying, “I promise to wake up at this time and start my day with energy and excitement.” And then your alarm goes off, you rub your eyes, look at the clock, stare at it like it’s an alien object derived from an ancient mythology. thereby deciding to hit the snooze button. You are breaking your first promise of the day before you’ve even gotten out of bed. Your first moment of the day ends up in failure.

You are a top scorer or a successful businessman, the moment you hit snooze you are taking it all for granted. Remember snooze has it’s limit too, it won’t register your complaints forever.

Imagine the pain it goes through, i.e. being hit on again and again?

Don’t do that. It’s bad for morale. It’s bad for you, and it’s bad for the clock too.

  1. But what if I set my alarm 15 minutes early to allow myself 3 snoozes, never having intended to get up that 15 minutes early? :)

    1. Haha, that’s what I generally do. But it doesn’t end at 3 snoozes. Not always. :)


  2. It’s one of the bad habits for me too :(

    1. I have the same habit. I tend to hit snooze button numerous times.
      It’s difficult to compromise with sleep you see.
