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. 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.
