A Trick For Getting Out of Bed

Some of you — well, most of you, might not be impressed by this trick. A few of you might have already figured this out long ago. The rest of you don’t have any issues getting out of bed (who are you…)

But there’s one or two of you out there who’s like me. You enjoy your mornings, you even consider yourself a morning person, but you hate getting out of bed so much that you’d rather rush through the morning and go to work needing to poop than get out of your warm bed when your alarm clock goes off. This is for you. This is what you need to do.

1. Set up your alarm on your phone. Double check to make sure it’s set to AM and not PM (for real).

2. Make sure it’s loud enough.

3. Send one last good night text to whomever (obviously your mom).

4. PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROOM. This prevents the inevitable 43 minutes of lousy snooze-sleeping and forces you to stumble out of bed to shut off your alarm. In that short but crucial period of time, the cool air in your room will hit you like a ton of bricks, your dog will shake, and it will be time to wake the fuck up.

  1. What else works, sometimes: leave yourself a little treat on the kitchen counter next to your coffee, like a square of chocolate, or a marshmallow. It works for dogs, so why not for you?
