BEEP, BEEP, BEEP!! "Stupid alarm clock" That has got to be one of the most annoying sounds known to man. When an alarm clock goes off in the morning, "stupid alarm clock" is probably not as bad as some would say when that annoying alarm clock goes off. I know I don't like hearing it. I have never talked to anyone in my life that enjoys hearing that alarm clock but, it is a way of life for so many of us.

So, what would it take to get up the first time the alarm clock goes off? Is getting up right away the best thing to do when the alarm clock goes off? Is it better to hit the snooze once before waking up to the alarm clock and actually getting out of bed? These are all questions I have asked myself.

I can see how some believe it is good to get up right when the alarm clock goes off. Going back to bed when the alarm clock goes off the first time leaves risk for accidentally turning the alarm clock off. I can also see why others feel it is better to hit the snooze on the alarm clock once as well, giving the person the chance to "gradually" wake up. Some people (including myself), not always but at times, hit the snooze on their alarm clock 4 or 5 times in the morning before actually opening their eyes and getting some clothes on. This leaves huge risk for accidentally turning the alarm clock off or just being late for work. Others however, will hear the alarm clock, stand up, turn off the alarm clock and go about their normal morning routine.

With time (getting older) and knowledge, I am finding some mornings are easier to wake up to an alarm clock than other mornings. Why is that? Did I go to bed earlier the night before? Did I eat something different before I went to bed? Did I drink more water last night? so when I do hear the alarm clock, I have to go to the bathroom so bad I have to get up.

There is one thing I am realizing about waking up to an alarm clock in the morning. When I hit the snooze on my alarm clock in the morning and go back to sleep, I usually am not interested in what the next day has in store. When I don't want to wake up when that alarm clock goes off, it is usually because I have to go to work that morning. When the alarm clock goes off on a weekend morning and I have plans to go do something with my daughter, I have no problem waking up to the alarm clock. I don't even have a problem waking up to an alarm clock on a work day when its payday or Friday!!

In conclusion, the reality is, we all need an alarm clock. Some days are easier than others waking up to an alarm clock. The best thing to do to ensure waking up to an alarm clock is "easy", a person needs something to look forward to everyday giving them a reason to wake up when that annoying alarm clock goes off.
