Is anyone else stuck in a snooze button rut lately?

For years, I would hop up the moment my alarm went off, never hitting snooze or resetting the time. It rang, I was awake and out of bed.

At some point in time, things changed and I got into a new habit.






This is something I’m trying to change so today we’re going to talk about a few ways to break the snooze button habit and support one another in the attempt to break the habit.

  1. Put your alarm clock out of reach
  2. Prep the coffee the night before
  3. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep/go to sleep earlier
  4. Change the alarm tone to something more pleasurable
  5. Be ConsistentΒ 

Have you broken the snooze button habit? How did you do it?

    I love this. I hate mornings. Not a morning person whatsoever. So of course, I’m also the type to hit the snooze button five or six times before finally getting out of bed haha for me, it’s best to put my phone slightly out of reach. And I actually have to set the tone to something loud and obnoxious. Otherwise, I’ll sleep right through it lol

      I am actually very much a morning person but I’ve still been doing that. I can already tell that I’m breaking the habit and it feels so good! For me it’s been huge to switch the alarm to something more pleasant but we are all different so if you need loud, then do what you gotta do! πŸ˜‰

      I’ve been doing that too lately! I’ll snooze 2-3 times, decide to skip my workout, re-set the alarm, sleep another 45-60 minutes and continue the cycle until I NEED to get up for work and drag my butt straight to the coffee pot because at that point, I am even MORE exhausted..

    These are great tips! I’m a snooze hitter big time. My weakness is I’m allowed to work from home so I know I don’t have to get up and get ready.

    Ok, I hit snooze twice every morning. But I set my alarm early enough to allow myself to hit it twice. I guess my inner peace needs it. But I really want to stop and get up the minute my alarm goes off because the snoozing is not relaxing at all, so why not leave it be, get up and use those extra minutes to get out of the house a little less stressful. Thank you, Katie!

      I always build in enough time for the extra snoozes but then the days would come when 2 snoozes became a skipped workout and extra un-restful sleep consisting of hitting the snooze button over and over and over for another hour or so.

      Girl, that’s where I got myself and I just couldn’t stand it anymore – mentally, physically and I knew it wasn’t doing anything for my sleep!

      I totally have mornings like that too!! Make sure you’re getting to bed early enough/getting enough sleep in general as I know that seems to happen to me when I’m trying to squeak by with the bare minimum!

    I used to be the type to POP OUT OF BED when the alarm went out – and SOMETIMES I still do… But more often than not these days, I snooze at least 2 – 3 times. Granted, I set my alarm at a time where I know I can snooze a little, ha ha!

    1. Katie Post author

      haha I do that too…plenty of extra time built in, but I’m getting sick of it! I want to be back to the POP OUT OF BED days!

    I definitely struggled with this today! I think what helps get me up is having a goal and being excited to get up and start my day. Great post!

    How did you know??? I did that just this morning! LOL I think I need a new clock. The alarm is actually too pleasurable and I sleep right through it. Maybe an annoying sound would get me out of the bed? Or a function with electric shock? A bed shaker? hehehe

    Seriously, I like those tips. Very helpful.

      Haha! My FitBit has an alarm that will lightly vibrate and it scares the crap out of me…that didn’t last long!

      1. Teri

        Again! How did you know??? Uncanny!

        I actually just got a Fitbit with the heart rate feature. I really did. I need to visit the website and program it. I thought the program feature was just to remind me to get up and walk. What a great idea.
