Hmmm, have you tried lots of coffee?


If I drink anything but tea in the morning I get a bad stomach ache the entire day :x

Got the same problem with coffee, but half a litre of tea helps me. I guess it doesn't help you... I'm out of suggestions tongue.gif

I usually set my phone to Calendar Alarm with custom messages, so when it starts ringing and I wake up, if you look at the outside of the phone it reads "Wake up, Neo". That somehow gets me out of bed tongue.gif

How do I wake up in the morning?
hah, I don't, I wake up around 15:00 !!!

anyway
I know how you feel man, during my life I've gone through 2 periods of early mornings

The first was during a wilderness survival course in Northern Quebec. We had to wake up at 05:30 every morning. It was awe full. Getting out of the shelter and into the frosty morning was hell... the only reason I was able to do it was because I had a sergeant yelling at me the whole time.

The second time was when I worked for Electronic Arts. They expected us to be in at 07:00 which meant I had to get up at 04:30. I have never been so ready to give up at life... EVER. I would finish work at 22:00 and go right to bed (no guitar time!)

What I did was I had a coworker that had more luck in the morning call me. I instructed her not to hang up until I was out of bed and had the shower running. I found talking to a friend early in the morning really woke me up, you should try it

In the past I've also tried plugging my iPod into the radio, so when the alarm went off it would blast some Metallica to wake me up. Try staying asleep while some killer solo is being played on the radio... only problem with that was that I was sometimes late because the music inspired me to play some guitar before work

I dont use any alarms or anything like that. When I go to sleep , I concentrate on my breathing and think in the hour that I want to wake up the next morning , normally is 5:30, and thats it your biological clock is the more acurrate clock that exists. I go to bed around 11 pm normally.

Iv'e done that during school, most times it worked, but sometimes it didn't and while being at school I can afford being late or missing a class, I can't really be late to the army =p

I love the suggestion about a friend wake up call, but unfortunatly I don't know anyone that wakes up as early as me right now tongue.gif

And that Callender suggestion is preety intresting... only problem with it for me is that I put my cellphone to recharge overnight, so it sits preety far away from me, but if I'll manage to get it close I'll try it it sounds like it might just work smile.gif

Thanks all!

What you need is a bucket of icewater and an alarm clock at the bottom of the bucket. This alarm should make tons of noice and the only way to deactivate it is to scan your eyes at the bottom of the bucket tongue.gif
Or, an alarm goes of and you have 3 seconds to move or something heavy will drop down on you.

Uncreator... You're weird!




Sorry! Couldn't resist! biggrin.gif

I always get up with the alarm of my cellphone. I try to pick the most annoying sound, so I have to get up to put it off.
It works... sometimes.

Left undisturbed I will easily sleep till 1-2pm. tongue.gif

On school days I am awoken by the blazing overhead light in my room, its the most effective way to wake me up, a sudden dose of bright light, not pleasant but everything else I sleep through. ugh.. 7am sad.gif

Hah, 1-2 is early for me tongue.gif

I'm usually up around 4 or 5, but I've woken up at 6 a few times.

I consider this a sport.

I used to do that and would always wake up 3-5 min before the alarm went off. Now I have kids so I don't need an alarm or anything else, they have best biological clock of all. It's spooky really, they can't read a clock but they always now if I'm late or early for anything.

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...


OMG! Thats what i do. Except i set three. And still most of the time i turn all of them off. I once even woke up threw alarms at the floor and jumped back to bed. I was really unconcious and my mom walked past my room and was shocked when she saw small bits of my alarm all over the floor. Ever since then ive strategically placed my alarm clocks at the end of my room so i have to walk a bit.

Reading before going to bed really does help to. I find playing guitar without the amp suits me.

yeah that's what I do.
I find I actually get a little freaked if I put anything heavy on....so I put ska on, puts me in the best mood.
