The sounds of an alarm clock is miserable. It elicits feelings of pure anger. So the first thought in your head each day is a negative one. That’s a terrible way to start the day!
Instead I set my alarm clock to play my iPod. Usually I set it to play hot nasty funk. The first thought in my head each day is a bright one. Not only that, but unlike with an annoying alarm clock sound, I don’t even want to push the snooze button! I just want to keep dancing to the hot nasty funk. And you can’t sleep when you’re dancing…And when you’re dancing, you want to stand up. So before you know it, you’re up and ready to take on the day.
