Am I serious? Yes, I am!! The alarm is not my focus but what you are doing between the time you set it up and the time it goes off. Say it is 6 pm, and you decided to meet a friend at 8 pm, but you still want to watch that comedy episode. Well, you are watching and laughing, but you are also keeping an eye on the clock. What’s the issue with that? What you are thinking is “I don’t want to be stuck in traffic; make sure I remember to pick up my coffee before I head out; what if I miss the bus?” Looking at the time stresses you out. Let the alarm take care of it. Set the alarm up, and focus on the task at hand.
