Q: Lately I have struggled to get out of bed despite waking up a decent time to go to my lab (I'm a grad student), the end result being I fall asleep again and end up going in about 1–1.5 hours later than I really want to. How do I make myself actually get up when I wake up?
I sometimes use Sleep If U Can (Alarm) app on my android phone.
我有时候会用一款名为Sleep If U Can的闹钟软件。
While setting the alarm, it asks you to choose how to turn it off. There is a option which says to turn off by using an image. While setting , you can set an image as the off key.
Now when the alarm rings, it forces you to capture a similar image and turns off only if it is similar to the pre-set image.
I have set my turn off image as the toilet basin, so when I have to turn off the alarm , I have to search for my slippers,walk to toilet and click the image of the basin. since, I live in a hostel having shared toilets, I have to leave my room to go to toilet and take the image. This is annoying but wakes me up.
I use Alarm Clock Plus★on my Android. I have to solve a maths problem in order to snooze or dismiss the alarm. Right now it is at medium difficulty, involving arithmetic between three two digit numbers.
我用的是一款叫做Alarm Clock Plus★的安卓软件，为了让闹钟停下来我必须要解开一道数学题。我现在把它设定为中等难度，就是要解开一道三个两位数之间的计算题。
Once I set it to hard level. There were three three digit numbers having addition and subtraction between them. Had to literally rub my eyes and really concentrate to try and figure it out. You just can't sleep back after that.
This digital alarm clock launches a rotor into the air that flies around the room as the alarm sounds, hovering up to 9' in the air, and will not cease ringing until the rotor is returned to the alarm clock base, compelling even the most stubborn sleepers to get out of bed on time.
WE GOT CATS! Which is the working person's version of kids. The little buggers. I'm up at 6:30 now, every day. No alarm. So worth it.
