I am one of those people who has three alarms to get up. I have one at 6 am, 6.30 am and the last one at 7 am. And all those are configured only for weekdays. Weekends, I get up when I care to wake up 😉
I wasn’t always like this. I used to be an early bird when it was the only way to get hot water in a ladies hostel and of course when I was studying. One of my colleagues used to ask me to take time management classes because I used to go to office by 8.30 am and be back to the hostel at 5.30 pm and get all my work done on time too. No working on weekends either. And then life changed. I changed. I wasn’t in hostels anymore. And most importantly, I got older and wiser to make use of the work from home option 😛 and my colleague keeps pointing that out every chance he gets.
It was funny to see this video with some tips to wake up at 5 am. I have no clue why it was in my recommended list anyway.
Because nowadays, I don’t need any of these. Irrespective of the three alarms I still have on my phone, I wake up early (not necessarily get up from the bed, though) because I have got a husband who is an early riser. He is wide awake at 5.00 am and since I am a very light sleeper I know when he starts listening to his radio by 5.15 am. His early waking habit does come in handy when I have to be somewhere by 8 am or so. I don’t have to get up earlier than 6 am to switch on the water heater 😉 All is ready for me by that time. I don’t have a thing to complain and don’t need any tips either, but thanks anyways, YouTube 🙂
