Turn On Your Mp3 Or Ipod Instead Of Hitting The Snooze Button
Members Were Sparked
One way I have been able to overcome my habit of pushing the snooze button in the morning is to turn on my mp3 player to my favorite playlists. Music really gets me going in the morning and ready to do my workouts even before I get to the gym. Dance while scrambling those eggs?? Who would ever think? Plug in those tunes and get ready for the day!!

Don't skimp on sleep by trying to add more events to the days. It's a stressor & gets everying out of balance. and Don't repeatedly hit the snooze button, either go to sleep earlier or take a nap. Don't let the snooze button become a habit that needs broken.
I learned about balance by balancing my time.
I saw another post about reading while you excersize. I like to use Audio books, because I have a tendency to be a little uncoordinated with my movements! (Just a little ditzy!) I like to listen to audio books so that I can focus on my movements while getting sucked in to a good story!
audible.com has TONS of electronic books and is a good place to go whether you have a mp3 player or ipod.
To make sure I don't change my mind about working out in the morning, I don't allow myself to hit the snooze button when the alarm sounds...if I don't get up then, I'll not only miss my workout I'll also be late for work (or other activity). To make sure I don't miss my PM workouts, I change my clothes as soon as I get in the house from work...no exceptions and no excuses.
