How do you write something that is so perfectly boring as to be sleep-inducing, but not distractingly, ridiculously boring? [Laughs.] You know, I get so many emails from people who are like, “Can you send me the script for your story? I’m really interested in it but I never make it to the end.” And that’s a fantastic accolade as a writer of sleep stories, for someone to say “I can’t get to the end of your story.” I don’t generally worry about writing sentences that are too boring, but sometimes I have to go back and delete sentences that are too exciting. Say, I did a recent story about the jungles of Madagascar. I was walking through the forest and I remember near where I wanted to end the story, I’d seen a really beautiful python. To me as a travel writer, that’s amazing. I wrote it in the story. And then I was like, oh no. That’s gonna freak some people out when they are trying to drift off. So I had to edit out that snake.

Shoulder day crushed before the sun was up! I've been waking up easier to my workout alarm and as tempting as it is to hit snooze. Crushing my workout first thing feels even better!! I used to set a workout alarm just to turn it off and wait for my get your 🍑 out of bed and get moving alarm every morning. And when I finally did get out of bed I was still tired and wanted to go back to sleep. We are in the middle of week 5 of our current program and I am still amazed at how much more energy I have now than I did a year ago.
Purpose is an incredible alarm clock ⏰⠀⠀ 🇺🇸 & 🇩🇪⠀⠀
Why do we hit the snooze button? I think one of the main reasons we’re hitting the snooze button is because we have no exciting reason which leads us to wake up and to pursue it. We’re lacking goals, passion, and purpose .. that DRIVEN FIRE 🔥 inside of us. Have you ever noticed how FAST we can jump out of bed when we’re excited of something? Every time I want to snooze I‘m very suspicious and think about what could be the reason for it. When that happens it’s a kind of 🔔shaaaaame🔔 for me and I’m feeling like my dark side wants to gain the upper hand 👀😆 not on my watch 🙅🏻♀️ who’s with me❓ 😂⠀⠀
🇩🇪 Wieso betätigen wir den Snooze-Button? Ich denke einer der hauptsächlichsten Gründe warum wir ihn betätigen ist, weil wir keinen aufregenden Grund haben welches dazu führt, dass wir aus dem Bett hüpfen und diesem nachgehen. Uns fehlt es an Zielen, Leidenschaft und Sinn .. das antreibende Feuer 🔥 in uns. Habt ihr jemals wahrgenommen, wie SCHNELL wir doch aus dem Bett hüpfen, wenn wir uns auf etwas freuen? Jedes Mal, wenn ich snoozen will, bin ich sehr suspekt und denke darüber nach, was der Grund für mein Verhalten sein könnte. Wenn das passiert ist das eine Art 🔔Schande🔔 (auf Englisch hört sich das besser an 🙄) für mich und ich fühle mich als würde meine dunkle Seite die Oberhand über mich gewinnen wollen 👀😆 Nicht mit mir 🙅🏻♀️ Wer kennt’s❓😂⠀⠀
