Stop using your phone as an alarm clock now!
What’s your favourite excuse for keeping your smart phone on your bedside table? Here’s mine: it’s such a convenient alarm clock. I just like to be woken up by the subtle cricket alarm sound it makes.
Let’s reevaluate our habit
Sadly a phone is way more than just a clock, it’s also an open door to external stress, noise and distractions. Most of the time when I set my alarm for the following morning I can’t help myself, I take a final look at my latest notifications and messages. I sometime even do a quick google search to get the answer for a question I had in my head. Whatever the reason, underneath it the real motivation is to take a last show of screen time before I go to sleep. Like any other addiction, I’m sure you have your list of reasons why you need to use it.
I’m currently reevaluating why I accept to sleep so close to this device.
It obsessively tries to fill my firsts and lasts minutes of every day with its glowing screen. I might be too weak but the only way I found is to leave my phone downstairs and replace him with a standard alarm clock.
My goodbye letter to my phone
Dear Smart Phone, I decided to replace you with your ancestor, the one you replaced a while back, the good old alarm clock. Don’t worry it’s not you it’s me, I just decided to move forward and spend my nights without you.See you in the morning
