This post will go over tips to help you find the best alarm clock for you, setting it up correctly, and waking up feeling refreshed. As a bonus, it’ll discuss ways to minimize the risk of oversleeping.
The way that your brain interprets light is what dictates when your body wakes up in the morning. This means that if you want to wake up at 6am every day, using an alarm set at 6am won’t guarantee this. You need something with a brighter light than just one single LED bulb ticking away until it’s time for work or school! Most people use their phone’s flashlight app as their back-up plan when they’re in desperate need of an extra hour of sleep but there are other options out there.
How to set a sharp alarm clock
1. On your phone, set your alarm as you normally would (the sound-type doesn’t matter). You can make this as loud or as gentle as you want; the main consideration with setting it is to make sure it’s on a time you know you can wake up to.
2. Find an app that has a timer and uses your phone’s flashlight, but it needs to be brighter than just one LED bulb ticking deep in the night. Make sure the app is easy for you to use and is adaptable to different types of individuals (i.e., pick one with a light that turns on gradually instead of immediately blinding your eyes).
3. Set the app so that it takes some time before the light turns on.
What your alarm clock is doing right now
Your alarm clock is probably doing one of two things right now – either it’s sitting on your nightstand and not doing anything, or it’s quietly ticking away in the background. If you’re using an old-fashioned alarm clock with a bell or a buzzer, it’s probably just sitting there and not doing anything. If you’re using a digital alarm clock, it’s probably ticking away in the background and counting down the time until it’s time to wake up.
I found that using an alarm clock app with a timer that gradually increases the brightness of the screen over time to get your body ready to wake up helps get rid of oversleeping. I’ve been waking up refreshed every morning at 6am for the past week since I started trying it! It’s like the flashlights in my dreams finally paid off in real life.
Make Your Morning Routine Easy
There are lots of things that you could do in the morning to make it easier on yourself, but I’ll keep this post short and sweet.
1) Wake up early enough – If you’re waking up at 6am every day, don’t be the person who wakes up at 7am. 2) Get out of bed – Don’t lay there in bed wondering when life will start, or when you have to get up. 3) Put clothes in a place where they’re visible – Make a pile of your clothes in a specific spot so that it’s quick and easy for you to put them on when you wake up.
Setting up an alarm clock in the morning might seem simple to some, but for others it can be a challenge. That’s why we’ve put together this guide about how to find and set your alarm correctly so that you’re well-rested and ready each morning! This post will also discuss ways of minimizing the risk of oversleeping when using alarms, as well as provide tips on making getting out of bed easier. There are lots of things you could do in the mornings to make it less challenging – if waking up at 6am is difficult, try waking up earlier or changing your routine so that you have more time before needing to get out of bed.
