  1. Hi Mahbuba,

    We just followed each other on twitter and i decided to check out your blog. It looks gorgeous by the way.
    I agree with you on the snooze button thing… i used to set my alarm to start ringing bhe y 4.30 in the morning so that i would get up at 05.45… I did this for a year fam…let me just say it was a bad idea.

    Finally moved my all my alarms to 5.15 and it really helps. i a not as tired when i wake up anymore. but I think i will have to actually get rid of the snooze forever.

    The whole trick is to sleep early = winning.

    • Hey there, you had me cracking up on your 45 minutes of snoozing. Lol you must have been tired by the time you actually got to waking up. Definitely right about sleeping early.
      Thanks for coming by the blog, glad you like it.

  2. I’ve recently just made changes to my sleeping and waking habits. I usually went to bed at 3 am or sometimes even later. I am still suffering a little bit from sleep anxiety and sometimes just anxiety: I think that I wouldn’t be able to sleep, or I wouldn’t get enough sleep.. That causes me to be more anxious before I even try going to bed.

    Keeping a journal of my worries and writing on it during the day helped me set aside my worries so that I don’t have to think about it at night.

    You are right! Setting a goal works! Also, that snooze button is very misleading indeed. I try to just wake up once my alarm rings.

    Thanks for your insights! I hope you’re well and happy birthday!

    • Hey there Ron, thank you for coming by the site. The high stress I go through in school sometimes makes me loose sleep at night too. One thing that has always seemed to work for me when I feel worried and stressed-out is a simple and short workout session. 10 minutes on an elliptical machine a few hrs before I sleep helps me blow off some sweat and stress. Not only does it help me calm down, by the time I’m ready to sleep my body gives in easily and I’m out in minutes.

  3. I love this post! I’m an early bird for sure. I start at 4:45 am and I’m out by 10:30-11:00pm if I can help it!

    I love the way you include the video let flow…. Go stead and slow! Great post

    • Thanks for stopping by and kudos to you girl, there’s no way I’m waking up at 4-something am for anything.
