Whats the best way to wake yourself up in the morning?

Work calls for me to get up at 6.30am. I'm looking for a way to feel fresh and happy about the day without lying to myself.

Tried the following:

Early night, (about 10am but i just lay in bed watching the clock)
Coffee in the morning,
I heard apples wake you up more in the morning than coffee so tried this,
Tried the above but included oranges,
Cold shower,
Cup of tea and decent breakfast,

All have differing results but i think coffee has been the best, any other tried and tested ways i can try?

Open curtains/blinds. If you room is dark or not naturally lit you will feel more tired. At 6:30am it usually is creeping in, isnt it?

ill add that to my fruit list lol

I think a warm shower makes me feel great in the morning, with some really nice smelling shower gel.

I also make sure I massage my head when shampooing my hair and it feels great when you concentrate on it (no sauciness going on here)

I also find if you are over warm in the morning - then you remain in a deeper sleep.

Get a dog!!!!! Minute my pooch hears the alarm going off she honestly runs into my bedroom with her leash in her mouth lol

Yeap me too - lol quite high pitched actually - i find myself arching my back trying to get out of the damn thing, and it takes longer to do cos I can't take the temperature. :x

u got partner? how about some early morning sex?

I too would recommend a Lumie light. I bought mine from Boots- they tend to reduce them or at least give lots of points nearer Christmas.

sure you can b picky:thumbsup:

and hence why she is getting punished... how dare she have a slight imperfection. she deserved it cus of that

as for the main question. i dunno if this will help but iv heard about these things before

amazon.co.uk/SAD…S6Y

basically its like a light that wakes you up and tries to make your body wake up

how come most women i see in real life arent copies of porn stars, i hope they was

Didn't notice the double chin... Just the DD.


Set the alarm 15 minutes early.. gives you time to wake up slowly..

I got infracted for posting a picture less revealing than that one on the previous page. Burn the witch!

I work shifts so get up for work at 6am and 10pm, neither is easy! Being in a good mood helps me wake up as does something to look forward to. Upbeat music livens me up as well!

lol. nice way to end it

go for a run, not a massive one. Just a jog around the block or something

I also get up early pre 6am, I find I always wake up feeling like *****, doesnt matter if I have had 10 hours sleep or 3 hours. I do feel better when I take in a few power naps during the working day though. I only give myself 10 minutes to get from bed to in the van driving so have no time to do anything to wake myself up.
