You feel comfortable, happy even, as you are cocooned inside several warm blankets. You feel okay with the world and everyone in it. You are sleeping peacefully as a fan creates blissful white noise and blows a gentle breeze. Then, suddenly, a horrible screeching/beeping noise starts and you are startled awake. You feel groggy and have to leave the comfort or you warm blankets to face the cold air that has accumulated in your room. It’s still very dark so you trip over several random objects on your way to the light switch.
This is why I hate waking up early. Everyone morning when my alarm goes off informing me that I need to get around for work a part of me just wants to cry. Like most people I greatly enjoy sleep and so when it is cut short I tend to be crabby and easily annoyed. I have tried several different methods on how to wake up easier and none of them have worked.
I am a strong believer in waking up at one in the afternoon and THEN going about your day. This is one of the only reasons I value my weekends…sure I enjoy having free-time, but its the ability to sleep and nap as long as I want that really makes me happy.
