Student Guide: How to Wake Up Early


It’s September once again and one thing that students have to deal with it is simply waking up in the morning. Let’s face it, waking up late can make you miss the darned bus. Or if you’re old enough to drive a car, you’d just probably endanger the safety of the free world driving like a madman just to beat that first bell in the morning.

Don’t sleep late. Not getting enough sleep is a surefire way to wake up late, especially if sleeping and waking up late have been your routine for the past few weeks. Your body clock would need some adjusting so start sleeping early. It might take you a good week for your body to cope with the new routine. The good thing is, the body tells you to wake up when you’ve already got 8 hours of sleep. So early to bed, early to rise.

Have an alarm clock handy. For me, the best ones are the old ones – those without any snooze button and rings like all hell has broken loose. While the body clock can do the waking up for you, having an alarm clock is definitely an insurance just in case you suddenly felt all to comfy. Set it to ring to a time where you have plenty of allowance to do you morning rituals, have breakfast and catch the bus.

Jump out of bed, literally. Much like the effect of the snooze button, not getting up when you first wake up makes you overly susceptible to just dozing off again. So once you wake up, be up and at ‘em.

Ask good ol’ mom.  One of the most fool-proof alarm clocks would be mommy. Just ask them to wake you up using “all means possible” and be dead sure that you’ll be awake early. However, since some moms have a totally different body clock, you may be woken up even hours before you really intend to.

    Just wake up early in the morning using some alarm clocks or by other ways for 21 consecutive days and then from the 22nd day you will wake up without any alarm.. Try it! As it works.

  • My tip: plan the coming day before you go to sleep.

    It makes getting up (the next morning) that much easier ; )

    I usually have two alarm clocks: one far away that goes off 30 minutes before the time i want to wake up… (that way i have to actually walk across the room to turn it off).. and an especially loud and annoying alarm clock close to my bed (twin-bell alarm clocks work so well)… loud it usually scares me out of my sleep… lol.. then i get up. if i sleep incredibly late i always have a back up… my cell phone alarm clock… but i only use it if i go to bed extremely late (like 2 or 3 am…)

    I’ve decided (and have) started waking up at 5 AM because of Black Friday. Waking up at 4 AM to get some good deals made me feel like I got 2 days worth of stuff done for the price of one. Except it’s an essential to actually goto bed EARLY enough to get 8 hours of sleep. I laugh at the “pros” that wake up at 4 AM but go to bed at 10 PM.
