I haven't used an alarm clock in ages. I was inducing myself a lot of stress right out of bed and this early stress was affecting my day. Once I stopped using the alarm clock, I've felt more energized. Funnily enough, I wake up systematically at the same time (say 8:27am), but on my own terms. That's one perk of remote work. No need to check in at the office at 9am sharp. It doesn't mean I'm slacking, I'm getting enough sleep and can work more productively troughout the day.
