I’ve been having this problem lately. Somehow I ended up in an unhealthy relationship with my snooze button. I don’t remember it starting with a first date, but now we meet five or six times each morning.
This new boyfriend in my life has been wrecking havoc on my ability to get ready for the day and arrive at work with a fully-functioning (and properly caffeinated) brain.
So last night, I took matters into my own hands. In a drastic effort to break up with my snooze button, I promised myself I would take myself to Peet’s Coffee & Tea for breakfast if I didn’t hit snooze at all this morning.
After first experiencing Peet’s on a trip to San Francisco last fall, I have been obsessed with their vanilla lattes (as I am all vanilla lattes) and fresh oatmeal. With dried blueberries, almonds and brown sugar, their oatmeal is to die for and I’m a huge fan.
When my alarm went off this morning, I thought of breakfast and kicking my day off the right way and for once, I popped out of bed like a daisy. Breakfast was delicious and it was amazing to have extra time in the morning instead of rushing around.
Needless to say, the breakfast bribe worked. Now, hopefully I don’t have to bribe myself everyday.
Here’s to no more snooze buttons!
