Yesterday I shared my night owl lifestyle- which by the way is not my fault...I'm genetically predisposed. It's been scientifically proven.
Naturally, I dread, hate and fight about getting up in the morning. As any of my previous roommates can attest to, my alarm rings for an hour at max volume before I make an effort at moving. When I finally tumble out, I'm totally grumpy and unfriendly. Not a great way to start the day.
Last summer, while preparing to go back to school (and making my birthday list) I spent some time thinking how to make my mornings less traumatic.
I figured since I hate waking up in the morning, I should find any way I can to make it as pleasant as possible (turn my sleepy frown upside down). John likes to wake up NPR or the news station. But all that talking, early in the morning annoys me. I find radio stations too unpredictable- they could be talking, playing obnoxious music, etc. That annoys me too. No surprise- that freaking alarm buzzer really annoys me.
This lead me to
I LOVE my ipod alarm clock. I can pick the song I wake up to; it can be smoothing, and calming, even seasonal. Cannon in D, Seasons of Love, White Christmas, My Girl, Come Monday- I've been "happy" waking up to each.
But I've gotten board- (& John disagrees with many of my choices- especially Seasons of Love)
What do you suggest I add to my Wake-Up playlist? And what do you do start your morning off right?
thanks for your input ;)
