What’s your reaction when you first wake up?
Do you jerk awake to the sounds of alarms blaring all around you? Do you, with a groan that sounds like a ravenous zombie, reach over to pound on the snooze button, only to be awakened by alarms a few minutes later?
The word says it all: alarm.
Is that really the way you want to start your day? 365 moments of alarms, frantic beeping, or the radio blaring at you? It doesn’t have to be that way.
Experiment with the noises you wake up to. If you use your phone stray away from the default alarms. Use a ringtone that you like. Pick a song that makes you wake up happy and want to conquer the world.
There’s apps for that, there’s alarm clocks that will wake you up to chimes or even nature sounds.

I hate waking up to an alarm. Which is why I loved my old work schedule – I worked 6p – 2a, slept from about 3:30a until 11 or noon. I had no rush to wake up with an alarm, so I was always in a fairly good mood waking up.
Now, however, I have to wake up at 1am(ish), so I need an alarm. It's not the most pleasant sound, but if I get enough sleep, it doesn't usually scare me awake anymore.
For now, I suffer through it, dreaming and hoping for a day when I don't need it anymore….
I love being able to sleep in on on the weekends and wake up naturally, best feeling in the world. Hopefully someday that gets to be our life!
I used to have this super cute alarm clock that had a bird on top and when the alarm went off the bird chirped and the clock face brightened like the sun! It was magical to wake up to.
That alarm clock sounds awesome! I tried to google it to take a look but I couldn't find it!
I think I ordered it from fredflare.com. I didn't see it on their website and on another website it says "discontinued." :/
Aww, how sad, but that website is awesome, so much cool stuff!
