Worum geht's

Getting COMFY (2018) is a how-to manual for starting the day right. From work to school to our own social circles, modern life is full of external pressures that demand our attention and energy. With this guide, Jordan Gross offers a five-step method for tweaking your morning routine so you can face each day on your own terms. 

Kernaussage 1 von 7

You owe yourself a morning routine that makes you feel your best.

Who do you spend the most time with? Your spouse, your coworkers, your dog? Nope! Yourself. We are all our own constant companions from dawn until dusk each and every day. So it makes sense that improving your life begins with improving yourself, and improving yourself starts with improving your morning routine. 

Reinventing your morning isn’t easy. Even the author, Jordan Gross, isn’t an expert. However, he’s learned that like any type of personal growth, creating a new morning routine requires being open to new ideas, listening to the advice of others, and a little bit of trial and error. With this in mind, Gross developed “getting COMFY,” a five-part morning routine that helps him reach his potential each and every day.

So, how does Gross know getting COMFY is the right path forward? He can tell by how bad it feels when he skips the routine. When he fails to get COMFY in the morning, he feels tired and sluggish, like he missed an opportunity. Clearly, this is no way to start the day.

To ensure you always have time to get COMFY, Gross recommends the No Snooze Challenge. This game is all about waking up and then staying awake, right when the alarm goes off. To play it, first choose an activity you love, like watching TV or going to the gym. Now, for every minute you sleep in, limit yourself to one less minute doing that activity. With this rule guiding you, you’ve got the incentive to always rise straight away.

Gross finds that the best way to win the No Snooze Challenge is to ensure a good night’s sleep by going to bed smiling. This means making sure to have a little happiness built in to the end of the night. Before turning off the lights, spend some time doing something enjoyable, like watching a TV series you like, writing in a journal, or even talking to your mom on the phone.     

With pleasant thoughts sending you to sleep and the No Snooze Challenge getting you up on time, you’ll be ready to get COMFY. 

In the next blink, we’ll get started with the first step: finding a calming activity.
