Do you use your blackberry as an alarm clock? I do and it’s the worst habit. Before I am even out of bed I am checking email. The worst part is, I work with lots of morning people – not the “I worked out at 6:30” variety; rather, the sadistic “I worked out at 6:30 after getting up at 4, reading three papers, writing two memos and eating an (irritatingly) wholesome breakfast” variety. I regularly get up to a stream of emails and related replies that started way before dawn. Makes me feel the need to retaliate by emailing into the wee hours of the night, making them stressed to turn their lights out and turn in. The way I see it, there are two options. Become a morning person, or get a new alarm clock and leave the Blackberry at least for post shower. What would you do?
