Have you noticed that you’ve been procrastinating your day with the snooze? Find out how you can get rid of this habit to develop a successful routine.
You’re procrastinating your day with the snooze.
While you may think you need those extra 5 minutes to perform better, all you’re doing is creating chaos in your life.
Procrastinating your life
What are you really doing every single time you hit the snooze button of your alarm clock?
You’re postponing the start of your day.
In other words, you’re procrastinating.
Even before you’re fully awake and active, you’re already jeopardizing your success.

Just have a look at your schedule.
Which word would you use to describe it: empty or packed?
I can’t remember the last time I heard someone say they had nothing to do.
Therefore, I’m assuming you can barely fit all your appointments and to-dos in one page.
Now let’s think together.
Within the 24 hours of a day, besides to getting things done, you also need to:
- sleep an average of 8 hours
- eat 4-5 meals a day (+/- 2 hours)
- do self-care (+/- 2 hours)
- do some physical activity (between 30 minutes to one hour)
- commute (one hour total?)
That means you only have 10 hours for everything else.
So those 5 minutes or more you’ve been snoozing are, in fact, precious wasted time.
The reality about snoozing
When we put everything on paper it feels overwhelming, doesn’t it?
No surprise that so many of us keep on rescheduling stuff wondering why we can’t keep up.
That’s all without snoozing!
Now imagine if we add all the five extra minutes on top of that?
And to be sincere, we can snooze as much as we want, but it doesn’t help much, does it?
We only procrastinate getting out bed because we’re tired.
We’re in fact so tired we’d probably need hours to catch up.
So while we spend a few extra moments under the sheets by snoozing, they aren’t even close enough to help us out.
So, why do it then?
Stop procrastinating your day
You’re right if you concluded that your snoozing habit needs to stop.
There are simple ways you can get rid of it once and for all.
My favorite one is having a reason to wake up.
As I mentioned before, at first, I couldn’t envision myself getting up not even 10 minutes to work out.
When I started training to take part in Bikini Fitness Competitions, however, it changed.
I had a goal. One that was challenging and excited me.
Even though it didn’t transform me into a morning person, it was more than enough to make me start my day earlier.How to create space in your schedule by stopping snoozing. #coaching #mentorship #MindfulPlanning Click To Tweet
