Use labels on your alarms. A lot of people don’t realize that you can edit these, so you should really use this to your advantage. Maybe today at 1:30 you need to go to the post office. Change the default “Alarm” to “Go to the Post Office” (minute 1:00)
It’s a bad habit to be constantly checking your phone or even a clock. Set alarms so that you do things when they need to be done and stop checking your phone. (minute 2:00)
Set alarms to remind you to do the things you often forget to do. If I don’t set an alarm to eat lunch, I’ll probably forget to do it when I’m in the zone. (minute 4:00)
I want you to set one recurring alarm for something you do every day. This is a great way to start getting into this habit. (minute 6:00)
