Put the alarm on my phone for about half 6. Knowing I need to get up at around 6:45. I'm a late sleeper, so usually I've turned the alarm off by now and continue to sleep. My sister or mum come it at about 7 and just turn the light on and take my duvet away.
That gets me up in the morning.
Alarm goes at 7.15 and eventually at 8.10 after drifting in and out of sleep I'll get up, as I can't leave it any longer than that.
I have my iPod alarm going off at... 6.00, bellowing Avenged Sevenfold ridiculously loud at me. Then, my alarm clock goes off - one of those hammer + bell sort things. Turn that off. Then my phone alarm goes off, and I generally turn on the TV and listen to the BBC News. I snooze 'til perhaps 6.20, then force myself to go downstairs and get some tea, then shower and such.
xD, when my alarm clock was new, I scared myself awake. Still do that, f the iPod is loud enough (I plug it into my computer speakers).
EDIT: In the summer, as I live in the attic I usually get the sun shining right in my eyes as it's rising. No curtains or blinds.
Im an extremely heavy sleeper and don't do mornings.
1st Alarm - 6:50 (I need this to wake me out of my comatose state, I then return to a somewhat light sleep for 25 mins)
2nd Alarm - 7:15 (I wake up a bit better on the second time)
Actually manage to drag myself out of bed - 7:20-7:30
So thats right, it involves a system covering 40mins for me to get up.
As Ive said, Im a heavy sleeper (deep sleep=good sleep) and I get 8-9 hours sleep every night. I eat healthily, exercise, and do all the reccomended stuff but nothing has worked for me. I just physically cannot operate in the morning.
My phone alarm goes totally unnoticed, so I eventually get frightened out of bed by my "firebell" alarm.
When I'm at home... totally different story. My Dad has a variety of favoured techniques to get me up, including, but unfortunately not limited to a bongo drum and a guitar with an amp next to my head.
My mum wakes me up, but never before 8am!
I don't get up in the morning.
In the afternoon, I drag my bloated, 30-stone sack of tubes from my bacteria-infested bed with the help of a small pulley system.
It takes me about 10 minutes to actually wake up...like i become aware of the room, but my eyes are still half closed, then i wait for about ten minutes until i'm fully awake, and then i get up. The worst thing is when you know you have to get up and you're still half asleep. I set my alarm for about 30 mins before im due to get up, then my phone alarm for a bit later, then by that point i feel ready to get out of bed. But i never used to be like that.
You have to give yourself time to wake up. I mean, if you cant do that, bang your head on the pillow or think about how bad it would be if you got up late...there's always tomorrow night right? And the other thing? Get enough sleep. It does help.
