Something I have become increasingly bad at over the last couple of years, is getting out of bed. I don’t know if my bed has gotten more and more cozy lately, or I’m getting lazier, but it’s become quite an issue. My question for you, is do you think speed-getting-out-of-bed is something I can train for, like running? Or am I looking forward to a day when I just can’t ever get out of bed at all like in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where all of his grandparents stay in bed all the time forever until one of them gets super excited about going to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory?
This isn’t causing any major problems in my life – yet. I still always get to where I need to be going, but I definitely miss a lot of potential workout time because of it. I can’t wait until I’m 70 years old and it’s the Great Depression and my daughter washes clothes for a living and my grandson buys a chocolate bar on a whim that changes our lives forever.
So, does anyone have any tricks for getting out of bed (and staying out)?
I read that I can train during the day by getting in and out of bed with an alarm clock a bunch of times in a row, but first I want to know if there’s anything easier to try (besides moving the alarm clock far away… it turns out, I just turn it off and get back in bed).
Thanks ahead of time for your suggestions. I would love to have extra time in the morning to workout or watch extra television!
This photo is from around 3 years ago, before my huge getting-out-of-bed problem started, but this is what my current problem looks like, minus the dog in a t-shirt. He’s still around, but usually not in a t-shirt and usually not causing the problem unless he comes to cuddle with me and makes my bed even more comfy.
