I love to sleep. I can sleep for much longer than needed, wake up, then take an extended nap again with no problem (my friends can attest to this). However, I love waking up and being productive...as long as I can get out of bed.
I've been trying to implement a better morning routine into my lifestyle and the first step I'm taking is to sleep and wake up properly. There are numerous studies showing that using your phone right before sleeping (as I do when I set my alarm...and play a few rounds of Two Dots) keeps your brain awake from the bright light and makes it harder to fall asleep. By using an alarm clock placed away from the side of my pillow (sorry iPhone), I can get up and not be so tempted to press snooze or fall back asleep.
Because most alarm clocks that I've seen can be eyesores, I've collected these 9 pretty and cool alarm clocks that will make me excited to reach for first thing in the morning! These clocks also make super stylish decor pieces which won't make you create a weird sleepy grudge against them. Also, for those of you who love sleep as much as I do, here are 10 tips for waking up easier during those cold winter months.
