Is there anyone out there who is recovering from a bad relationship with their alarm clock?
I don’t sleep through them. I don’t hit the snooze button over and over again.
But if I have set an alarm clock . . .
- I cannot go to sleep
- I wake up during the night
- I wake up before the alarm clock.
I do so hate been rudely awoken.
Does anyone have any tips for trusting alarm clocks?
Winter is coming and how does one know the time at this latitude without one?
P.S. I grew up in the tropics. The sun came up predictably between 05:30 and 06:30 all year round. It was no problem to be up and at work by 07:00. I really don’t know how to do this!
Try a full-spectrum lamp that has a timer in it – an alarm clock lamp! There seem to be a few brands out there, but the biggest one looks to be Verilux – it costs a lot more than I’m willing to spend on an alarm clock, though.
Thanks, Lou. Maybe they will loan me one. If I can trust it, anyone can!
