The Snooze Button or The Launch Button

What is your routine in the morning? Does the alarm wake you or do you wake by yourself? If you wake by the alarm do you hit the snooze button or is it the launch button for the day?

Over time the Snooze button on our wake up alarm has become a bit of a phenomenon, it has become culturally acceptable to hit the snooze button and go back to sleep for 10 – 15 minutes. Yet, science shows us that when we go back to sleep for just 10 minutes we actually start a ‘sleep-cycle’ in our bodies that can last between 90 minutes to 4 hours! So you could be holding back how effective you are in the day for up to 4 HOURS!!

A different approach…

Many years ago I had this approach, the ‘hit-the-snooze-button’ way of life, in fact at one point in my life I would actually set my alarm 30 minutes early just so I could hit the snooze button a couple of times and still get up on time! No wonder I was so tired all the time!

Now though, I have a different approach! I use the alarm switch-off button as a LAUNCH button, I hit it and am launched into the day! To be honest, most days I’m awake and ready to go long before the alarm goes off, however, on those days when my body needs to sleep until the alarm goes off I adopt the launch approach.

The moment I hit that button to switch the alarm off I get up, my aim is to have my feet on the floor within in 10 seconds of switching the alarm off (you have to give yourself time to stretch sometimes!)

The snooze metaphor….

The problem I have with the snooze button is it seems to me to become a metaphor for your life, you can start to hit the ‘snooze’ button on anything. Whether they be new opportunities, challenges, taking action towards goals, making important decisions, whatever it may be you can find yourself hitting snoooooooooze and missing out!

So my question is simple, do you snooze or launch?

Whether it be first thing in the morning when you wake up or whether it be in your life, do you hit the snooze button or the launch button? It’s a choice you can make right now and I encourage you to hit the LAUNCH button at every given opportunity particularly the opportunity of waking up and getting up to take on the world!

Here’s to hitting that launch button!
