I have one child who does not like to get up in the morning, so I set two alarm clocks. The one by her bed is set fifteen minutes earlier than the one that is set across the room. By doing this, she has extra sleep time or time to lounge in bed before having to get up.


When the second alarm goes off, she has to walk across the room to turn it off. Then she heads out the door to begin her morning routine. Now, our mornings are less stressful.

I have my alarm clock set all the way on the other side of the room. I have to get up and turn it off. I helped a friend out by staying the night with her mother (fall issue). They forgot to turn off their alarm before they left on their trip. The next morning, I had to go across the hall to their room to turn their alarm off. I found it across the room from their bed. It sure does make it more difficult to hit the snooze button when you have to walk back and forth from your bed!

I really struggle to get up in the morning. To combat this I set two alarms. The first one goes off 15 minutes before I need to get up. Since I use my cell phone as my alarm I can choose the sound that I want my alarms to be. I pick the most obnoxious ones I can fins and turn the volume up all the way.
