I love to sleep. I always have. The problem is that I’d rather sleep during the day and then busy myself in the evenings. Last night I went to bed with every intention of getting up early, but failed once again. By the way, when I say early I mean before 9am – Nothing too painful. I just can’t seem to drag my sorry arse out of bed.
I’ve started to blame the cat…. Yes, really! My alarm goes off at about 8am and as soon as I stir he climbs on my head and pushes his way under the covers next to me. Then we both snooze for an hour more. See… Totally his fault!
My freelance work hours are somewhat flexible, but I have a general rule that I must fire up my laptop by 10am. I’d like to say it’s earlier, but I did choose to work from home for that very reason. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve done my fair share of getting up at 5.30am. It most certainly was not a fresh look on me. I am now much more relaxed, have less headaches and feel a lot healthier in general.
It doesn’t even matter what time I go to bed. I can sleep for eight, nine, ten and even twelve hours, but my body still won’t wake up before 9am. I want to break from this routine and I need to sack the cat!
A few solutions people have offered are;
1) Have a child 2) Borrow my child and 3) Adopt a child
Hmm… Looks as though I’ll be sleeping in for quite some time yet then!
Do you find it difficult to get up in the morning? If so, have you found anything that helps?
Here are a few gadgets I found online – All of them without a child attached.
I’d like to say one of these would help, but I hear my mum still hits snooze three
or more times on the one we got her for Christmas!
Still only a concept… The IQ Alarm clock could actually be just the ticket.
