ok these questions are not big, epic, stories. just small things i need help improving on. 1. is how do i get myself to wake up early on feel fully awake in a matter of minutes. ok i got to sleep around 10-11 and i need to be up around 6:40. i have tried using alarm clocks/cell phone alarms. but i just shut em off and slump back to bed. so my mom drags me out of my bed but then i just go and lay down on the couch. so my mom drags me off of that and i go and get ready for the day. and even on the bus im listening to music and i just fall right back to sleep. so how do i wake up when my alarm goes off and feel wide awake in a few minutes (note: dont mention any energy drinks/coffee or any other products that must be eaten/drank) 2. how do i spend less time in the shower. my dad always complains to me that i spend too much time in the shower (10-20 minutes) and i always tell myself to move quickly but i just stand there just relaxing and thinking about something important in my life because i just think really clearly in the shower. so i just dont know what to do. any suggestions?

I wanted to write something long and elaborate but well to be honest, mrfancypants summed it up better than anyone could :p

And I know you haven't asked for that, but well a coffee does help. Another thing you might try to do, is go to sleep earlier, since you clearly can't get up in time when you go to sleep at that time.

Another thing, don't keep the alarm clock at hand reach. Put it so far away that you actually have to get up before turning it off.

On a second note, you have to want to get up. Because the way you're describing it, it seems more like you're avoiding getting out of bed. With just thinking about that you should get up instead of actually doing it.

Last option - get up an hour earlier, that way, you should be wide awake by the time you actually have to go to school.

1) put your alarm clock on the other side of your room and leave the window open...you get up to turn it off and it's so cold you wake up

2)have a bath....or better yet use cold water

You have to have some kind of sense of urgency.

(1) Try setting your alarm clock across the room so you must get out of bed to turn it off.

(2) Set a timer in the shower.

Many people assume what causes sleeping in is mostly associated with the method you use to wake up. A lot of what often causes grogginess in the morning is what you do BEFORE you go to bed. For instance, it's not a good idea to eat anything just before going to bed, nor carry in you what's been eaten earlier. As long as you are not dehydrated you CAN go to bed fairly "empty" and still wake up refreshed because your metabolism obviously slows way down whilst asleep. In fact you want to wake up hungry, it's part of what should wake you up.

Then there's how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally before going to bed. If you're not physically tired enough, you're going to sleep restlessly, which often means taking a while to fall asleep followed by grogginess in the morning. Stress tension and/or emotional occurrences can affect sleep too.

I'm not suggesting sleeping pills, never thought they were a good idea, but if any of the above are likely problems a little calisthenics, stretching, relaxing, could help before going to bed. If you have complex homework to do, try and get it done at least an hour or two before you go to bed and spend the last couple hours on something more relaxing.

crisissuit3;4789640so how do i wake up when my alarm goes off and feel wide awake in a few minutes (note: dont mention any energy drinks/coffee or any other products that must be eaten/drank)

Open your eyes, get out of bed, and don't go back to sleep on the couch. These are all choices -- choose to get up.

2. how do i spend less time in the shower.

Shower faster.

Easiest way for me to wake up in the morning is to take a hot shower as soon as I get up. I wake up at 4:30 every morning, often times with only 5-6 hours of sleep. It was tough at first but I'm used to it now. It takes a few weeks for your body to adjust. If you're regular enough, your body will wake itself up and sometimes you'll find yourself waking up a few minutes before the alarm actually goes off, no matter how many hours of sleep you got the night before.
