    Default Waking Up Alarmed

    It is supposed to be bad for sleep rhythms and perhaps also for the health to be disrupted unnaturally from your sleep...hence alarm clocks are perhaps not ideal.

    Being woken naturally by the light or by distant cows may be better, although not good if you need something that will reliably wake you up at the time you need to be up (if you are naturally inclined to sleep for a long time, this is also bad for health!). Perhaps being woken by the playing of some music that is not too stressful would help, or preferably being artfully prodded or rubbed...this works too.

    I have 3 alarm clocks that work absolutely fine managed by me ...they fit my personal beloved rhythm and energy demands. I'd never replace them with anything else ...it would be too artificial.

    I know some people like hearing idiotic cries (roosters or dogs when the sun comes up) to get into some natural groove. I don't envy them for their lifestyle tbh.

    I've seen some natural light alarms, but as you say I don't see them being too reliable. I thinks it's a better just sticking to a schedule and getting enough sleep. Not too easy in this day and age with fully flexible work and zero hours.





    As we reach for the stars, we must put away childish things; gods, spirits and other phantasms of the brain. Reality is cruel and unforgiving, yet we must steel ourselves and secure the survival of our race through the unflinching pursuit of science and technology.

    I thought this was about waking up alarmed as in, in a state of panic.

    LOL

    this is great. it wakes you up based on sleep cycles so you can actually sleep less but wake more refreshed.


    sleepyti.me works by counting backwards in sleep cycles. Sleep cycles typically last 90 minutes.

    Waking up in the middle of a sleep cycle leaves you feeling tired and groggy, but waking up in between cycles lets you wake up feeling refreshed and alert!

    Oh noooo, the op was obviously kind of unhappy with his current lifestyle and curious about 1 or 2 healthy ways to change his dream patterns .... but instead of forcing his own hand to wake up, he was Te-seeking and relying on community input to be applied later.

    So in case individual habits of us modest forum members don't help, here are some more tried and tested tips:

    My husband has sleep issues, and this

    http://www.amazon.com/UP-24-Jawbone-...6451890&sr=1-1

    has helped him.

    It will gently vibrate to wake you.

    It monitors your sleep, so you can study your sleep patterns over time.

    It can be set to wake you up at an optimal time in your sleep cycle, so you don't wake from deep sleep and spend the day feeling shitty. Downside is you'll possibly be awakened earlier than your alarm setting.

    I found that if I sleep in intervals of three hour segments I wake up ready almosy always. Even if its just 3 hours, its typically better than 7.

    Ifni wake at 6 its better to go to sleep at 3 than it is at 11 for me.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    I thought this was about waking up in a panic too. Which I was excited about because I often do wakeup in a panic and thought I could discuss it with someone else who has this problem lol. It only happens if I nap during the day. It's sheer panic when i wakeup mostly because i feel like my entire day was wasted and i have no idea what time it is. It's weird. Well anyway, that was off topic..

    Yeah this happens to me too, for the same reasons. One time I woke up and immediately ran into the kitchen shouting, *alarming* () my bf a great deal.

    If I'm well rested it doesn't really happen. And I avoid naps too.

    Reading about 90 minute sleep cycles and about it takes on average 14 minutes to get to sleep from @Allie's link fits in with this link I found from a while ago:

    Slight gender variations were recorded with regard to the correlation between sleep levels and time needed off work due to sickness, with researchers finding the optimal amount of rest for women was seven hours and 38 minutes, while men needed seven hours and 46 minutes.

    I use a version of that jawbone for a while . It was not meant for regulating sleep , but movement after a drastic change of lifestyle and diet . I wanted to start walking and exercising as much as necessary every day and this was awesome tool. As a by-effect it can help you keep healthy sleep patters too . All the better . It worked well - rounded for me .

    I don't usually use alarm clocks and when I do I often don't even hear them. The best way for me to wake up on time is to really intensely focus on it before going to bed. Knowing I absolutely have to do something is usually enough to wake me up two hours early, which sucks if I only got 3 hours sleep. I guess I program myself before bed. Other than that I will ask someone to wake me up, very gently and I prefer if they don't touch me until they know I am awake. I would give some leeway to boyfriends on this, for obvious reasons.

    My mom used to stand at my doorway and throw a wet towel at me to wake me up when I was young. If I was awakened when I wasn't ready, I would wake up very aggressive and disoriented. I am not like that anymore but I can be grumpy if someone wakes me, when I'm not ready, for insignificant reasons. I thought my mom was such a bitch for doing this but she was just desperate. I could sleep for 12 hours straight easily. I missed a lot of school, in my teens (when I really got bad with my sleep cycles), because she would wake me before she went to work and I would go back to sleep until noon.
