We think everyone one of you who is not a morning person will agree that waking up every morning is a Herculean task! Yes, even more difficult than climbing the Mt Everest. So this is for all of you who hate being the early bird. (What good does it do anyway?!) We present to you a list of early morning blues us inclined-to-be-late risers are all familiar with…

1. The Early Start Anxiety

When you know that you have a super early morning meeting or appointment, the stress of having to wake up at the crack of dawn starts haunting you from a couple of days in advance.

2. The Snooze Button Is Your Best Friend

6:00 a.m: Hit snooze. 6:15 a.m.: Hit snooze. 6:30 a.m.: Hit snooze. 6:45 a.m.: Hit snooze. 7:00 a.m.: Turn off the alarm.

3. One Alarm Is Never Enough

If you ever forget to set at least 3 separate alarms, you won’t wake up till midday.

4. Should I Call in Sick?

It’s the first question that pops into your head the second you turn off the alarm.

5. The Elusive 5 Minutes

“Just 5 minutes more, I promise”. You KNOW that that’s easily going to stretch to an hour.

6. The Loving Bed

You have a deep and meaningful relationship with your bed. It speaks to you. And parting with it is the toughest task of the day…

7. You Think You Are The Flash

“I’ll get up in half an hour, brush and shower at the same time, change in 5 and will reach office in the next half an hour.” You are indeed The Flash!

8. Assigning Wake-Me-Up Duties

From your parents and your roomie to your boyfriend/husband – you make sure that they leave everything they are doing and wake you up if they have been asked to do so.

9. Breakfast??

You probably have to look up the word anew in the dictionary. Eating breakfast when you have 30 minutes to bathe, get ready and reach office – you kidding, yo?

10. YAWN!

You can be caught yawning, your jaws gaping, at work quite often. Just because you woke up early. Your colleagues kind of judge you for this.

11. Hello Dark Circles, My Old Friend


12. “I Will Sleep the WHOLE Weekend” 

Promising yourself that helps…

13. The Coffee IV

You wish one actually existed. You could just up the drip dose whenever you anticipate slumber.

14. Hitting the Sack Early…

… Is something you always plan but never end up doing.
