I'm someone who likes to make a plan of action to get things done on my day off, or even on the weekend. I slowly collect ideas and build an ultimate to-do list which features everything I want to accomplish on that day. It's generally a long list, but I think that I can get it all done and it will be a success. Even if I only get half of it done I think to myself that I still would be productive. I go to bed thinking about how proud I will be of my very productive day.
So I wake up and it's like 12 midday and I realise what has happened... again. I've dismissed my alarm multiple times throughout the morning and I only figure this out during random blurred visions later that day. I go into a sulk, end up not doing anything on the list and spend the day watching TV and being grumpy.
Well that was before I was introduced to the world of better alarm clocks. They are often described as annoying by the masses, but I prefer effective.
We have the puzzle alarm clock:
We have Clocky:
Who rolls around your bedroom until you catch him and shut him up!
And we have the one I use, the helicopter alarm clock:
I use this simply because it was really cheap when I got it, and my bedroom is messy enough that it takes a while to find it.
So what do you guys use to wake you up in the morning? Would you ever consider a more extreme alarm clock?
