Or rather, get out of bed earlier.
My alarm goes off at 6, but I have a habit of laying there for anywhere from 15-30 minutes. Which defeats the whole purpose of waking up at 6: having extra time to eat breakfast/drink coffee/smooch my boyfriend/relax after getting ready and before work.
The result: I end up dashing around my apartment, taking my breakfast and coffee to go, snapping at my boyfriend when he tries to give me an extra long hug, and being stressed out.
I'm much happier and less stressed on the mornings when I actually get out of bed as soon as my alarm goes off.
Bonus tip: Stay offline.
I also have a habit of reaching for my phone as soon as my alarm goes off. And then I check emails and Twitter and Facebook and Instagram, all before I've even stood up. Which means not only am I wasting time, but I'm peeking into other people's days before starting my own.
Which is why I bought an actual alarm clock instead of relying on my phone's alarm. If the internet isn't right at my fingertips, it's a tad easier to stay away, at least until I've peed and brushed my teeth.
(This is the first time I've gotten fancy and numbered anything in this series, but technically there have been 6 other "how to stress less" posts before this one.)
