Housemate and morning routine


I’m noticing myself sleeping more than usual, and it’s because I’m staying in bed after I wake up (and sometimes falling back to sleep). I work remotely, and established a personal rule a few months ago to get out of bed when I wake up instead of staying in bed and checking work email. I want to get up when I wake up and go about my morning routine.

This morning I stayed in bed instead of getting up after I was awake. I reflected on the reason, and I think it’s related to my thoughts about my housemate. My housemate is most active around 8:15-8:45am as she gets ready for work. I don’t like talking or seeing anyone in the morning, and recognize that I’m subconsciously staying in bed until she’s left the house. When I didn’t do this in the past, I would usually prepare my tea in the morning in the kitchen, and sometimes see her preparing her lunch for the day. I don’t want to interact with her in the morning (I want to be in silence), and I think my staying in bed longer than I’d like is a result of thinking that I can’t do my morning routine with her around.

UM:
C – Housemate is up and about 8:15am-8:45am every day
T – I don’t want to disturb my morning routine by getting up now
F – Justified
A – Stay in bed longer than planned, check work email, am not intentional with my morning routine, feel disorganized and “behind”
R – I don’t have the morning routine I want i.e. getting up when I wake up

IM:
C – Housemate is up and about 8:15am-8:45am every day
T – I get up no later than 8am
F – Committed
A – Get up when I wake up, make tea, do my morning routine
R – I have the morning routine I want

IM:
C – Housemate is up and about 8:15am-8:45am every day
T – I get up when I wake up
F – In control
A – I don’t stay in bed checking work email, say hi and good morning to housemate if I see her (it’s not a big deal)
R – I have the morning routine I want

How do my models look? Is there anything else I’ve missed or should explore? I wonder if I’m using my housemate as an excuse to stay in bed even though I know my preference is to not see or speak to anyone in the morning.
