    I find feeling like P Diddy usually helps.
    I actually thought that when I saw the title of the thread! Oh dear

    I have to put my alarm across the room from me because once I'm out of bed, I'm up (albeit a zombie).

    I find knowing I have a reason to get up and having my slippers by the bed help a lot too.

    I'm the exact same! Hence why I set my alarm to go off every 5 mins between 6am and 8am. One thing that works is that you take a long deep breath when you wake up - something biological prolly :p: If you can remember to take a breath, that is.

    If only it was as easy as the Kesha song! lol

    I don't know why but I just can't do it. Every morning my alarm goes off and I constantly hit the snooze button. Even when I go to bed at a descent time my body will just not let me get up early in the mornings. Anyone else have a similar problem or any advice for me?
    1. Put the alarm across the room so you have to get up and get it to shut the buggar up.
    2. Drink like a pint of water before going to bed...you'll wake up in the morning needing the toilet and that will again get you up .
    3. Set multiple alarms round the room.
    4. Get someone nice to ring you at a set time to wake you up until you get into routine.
    5. Go to bed earlier.

    Disappointed that the post didn't carry on "feeling like P.Diddy!"

    I have the same problem. Even when I put my alarm on the other side of the room, I just get up, turn it off and go back to bed :facepalm:

    Brushing your teeth with a bottle of Jack might help wake up the OP as well

    My sister has this problem it makes her late so I move the alarm clock across the room to get her out of bed, cos its cold it gives her body a little shock and wakes her up. If she tries to get back in bed I get my water gun.

    i'm sorry, couldn't resist, had that bloody song stuck in my head all day.

    Solution - put your alarm clock far away. Then set another alarm to go off further away about 30 seconds later - and if you like, another. My mum does this, it takes 4 consecutive alarms going from her room to the kitchen, but it wakes her up

    I put my alarm clock AND my phone on the other side of the room, so I have to get up out of my warm bed to switch both to snooze.

    It works though, if I had it by my bedside, I would oversleep everyday haha. Try turning the radio on as well or some music, it may help you feel more awake.

    put the alarm clock away from your bed so you'll have to get up and out of bed to switch it off or hit the snooze. by the time you get up to hit the thing, you'll be awake.. it works

    I use multiple alarms spread over time. It's quite easy if I have a reason to get up (lectures for example) but when there is no reason I do often keep pressing snooze I recommend changing your alarm.

    I do that, get up and turn it off, then go straight back to sleep again...

    Water by your bed, drink as much as you can face when the alarm goes off and I usually find that wakes me up just enough to keep my eyes open.

    Oh my days, I want number 3 or 1! They sound quite exciting, although I would probably regret buying one after one morning of running around my room half asleep in the cold trying to catch my alarm!

    My mate has an alarm clock where you can't turn off the alarm just by pressing a button. You have to point a laser pointer at a precise spot onf the clock, which takes a bit of concentration and usually wakes you up. It works.

    I'm still after the Wallace and Gromit style of being chucked through the floor into your clothes and breakfast.

    Damn hard to find.

    I try the most annoying and loud tones ever. Maybe try opening the curtains and switching on lights (melatonin is released from the brain when it's dark to induce sleep). Put music or the radio on once your alarms have gone off so you have something to concentrate on?

    Try putting the alarm clock in the opposite corner of the room. If you get out of bed(to hit the snooze button, at least) you're safe
