I have had trouble waking up early. I want to study 2-3 hours in the morning, or do other the important tasks which have been pending forever. I want to keep the evenings aside for workouts.
However, I find it really hard to wake up early. I sleep so deep in the morning that I don't hear the alarms. Even if I do, I snooze them or turn then off without realizing. If I try extremely hard to push myself out, I sit on my bed like a zombie and my eyes are so heavy I can hardly get anything done. Then I am back to bed in a few minutes, only to wake up at 9-10am.
Any suggestions on how to wake up early and be active?
- F5 Networks zigzag27I guess you sleep late as well. Regulate your eating habits - eat around 7-8ish and go to bed around 10, your body will wake you up on time.
- Put your alarm clock on the other side of the room and make it 2LOUD4SNOOZING. That'll force you to get out of bed to shut it off.
If I have a pressing appointment to wake up for, sometimes I'll stick a post it note on my clock, too. Something like "don't be a lazy shit, you have the dentist".
- I used to wake up at 6 am.
6:30 to 10 - study
Dinner by 7:30
Study 1 hour and sleep by 10
- What time do you sleep and what time are you planning to wake up ? Early morning can mean anything between 4am-7am. What is your early morning?
- Yahoo uCvO03Give me your number and I will call you in the morning, discuss the questions done last night follow this for a week to keep motivation strong?
- Microsoft Tier 1moreGet Philips Hue lights and schedule them to slowly fade on in the morning, and simulate a sunrise.
Same time every day of the week.

- I second this. I have insomnia and have tried all kinds of witchcraft and voodoo over the years, including Zopiclone. 2.5g of melatonin 2/3 nights gave me the best results. You (OP) can probably start at 1g, though.
Take it an hour before bed and before 10pm. Also, be prepared for wild nightmares as your body adjusts.
