I believe the temperature outside right now, on this February morning, is hovering around 32º. How do I know? Because the rain outside switches between liquid rain and frozen rain periodically. (Something my older daughter and I have termed, "snizzling," a cross between drizzle and snow.)
No one wants to go outside in that mess. (I could be wrong, there might be some labradors who love this kind of thing.) Seeing it from your bedroom window, you might start wondering how important it really is to go out and run errands today, or if today might be a good time to ask your boss again about the possibility of working from home.
I recently bought some new sheets for our bed that are "plush." Honestly, I hate crawling into bed at night and shivering until my body heat warms the bed up enough to sleep. These new sheets bypass that step, and actually encourage me to jump right into bed at night.
You know the consequence already, don't you? I don't want to leave that cozy haven. My problem is not unusual, as the morning comments on Facebook are often related to the many other folks wishing to be back in their own cozy havens too. Yet, every day we do it. Get out of bed, and then complain about it.
So here I am to save the day! (Cue Mighty Mouse music.) Okay, maybe just your morning. Below are my tips for an easier way to get out of bed in the morning:
Warm blankets are great. But so is sunshine on your face. Here's to a great day, and congratulations for making it out of bed today! Here's hoping tomorrow will be a little easier for you.
