I'm serving in the Israeli army as some of you now, and I got just 11 months left now and I want to make this final year as stress free as possible! and one of the most stressing things I encounter is waking up in the morning(6 am), every morning is really a struggle to get myself out of bed, I think it's mostly related to the fact I'm waking up with an alarm clock but if I won't use it I just won't wake up in time..

So my question is if anyone who is in a similar situation has found a way to make waking up an easier task?

Sorry if the question is too odd tongue.gif

set the alarm for 5:30.. then set a second alarm at 6:00.. you'll get up to turn off the 5:30 alarm.. this is when you put on coffee.. back to bed.. 6am arrives.. and the coffee is done.. the morning becomes enjoyable smile.gif... or just go to bed earlier...

You probably don't have the luxury of having a stereo near where you are sleeping. But maybe this helps in other situations.

I use my stereo as an alarm clock and it will play a cd of my choice (no annoying sound). Then I just lie awake in bed for one song and get up after that.

I do a similar thing.. I use my cellphone as an alarm clock, and it's preety loud and I try changing the song it will play every now and then, but it doesn't work sad.gif

generally i wake up dead, dunno about most other people but thats just me.

What helps me get up in the morning is if i sleep in multiples of 1.30 (one and a half) hours, such as if you have to be up at 6.00 Am, then go to bed at about 12.00, or 10.30 PM

laugh.gif similar waking up issues here for me too! I really should get to bed a little earlier tho, thats half my problem.

I use my mobile phone alarm as well has a 7 minute snooze on it, I should really be up by 7.30am but I set my alarm for 6.45am and hit snooze for 45 minutes laugh.gif I`ve usually come round enough by then to actually get myself out of bed.

whens 6am?? thats like the middle of the night init?? laugh.gif

Snoozing is terrible. At least for me, I need to be asleep or awake and anything in between only aggrevates things. It will only make it harder to get out of bed when it's really needed. If you're not getting enough sleep I guess the remedy would be to go to bed a little earlier if possible.

Well, if I wanna wake up early I make sure I go to bed early, like 8 hours minimum beofre I need to wake up. So if you wanna wake up in 6.00 without problems lay in bed by 10 o'clock. It is simple as that. Your day will be much healthier too.

I wake up and immediately listen to some kind of soft soothing song, and eat some good food, and take a nice warm shower, always gets me up right smile.gif

I wake up and fall asleep again after 2 minutes, after some minutes I wake up again, try to keep awake, but that doesn't work that good tongue.gif
I just need some time to really get out of the bed, it's so nice and warm there wub.gif
Especially if I dont have school, I wake up at 12:00 but when I get out of my bed it's 14:00-16:00.
If I have school I get out of bed, because I have to (well sometimes I dont get up evne if I have to wink.gif)

I allready tried preety much everything you suggested.
More hours of sleep didn't help, and actually the ideal time to sleep is 7 hours, this is the time that is easiest for me to wake up, but even than it takes me a minumum of 10 minutes and lots of headaches and walking around like a zombie to wake up tongue.gif
Waking up 30 minutes before I need to.. tried that once, man it was depressing tongue.gif
In the winter it's too cold to get out of bed, and in the summer it's hot sad.gif
I can't eat in the morning, it makes me nauchious..

Thanks for all the suggestions though ^^

Perhaps meditating before bed?

Works for some.
