WANTED: Advice of someone who has made friends with their alarm clock

Is there anyone out there who is recovering from a bad relationship with their alarm clock?

I don’t sleep through them.  I don’t hit the snooze button over and over again.

But if I have set an alarm clock .  .  .

  • I cannot go to sleep
  • I wake up during the night
  • I wake up before the alarm clock.

I do so hate been rudely awoken.

Does anyone have any tips for trusting alarm clocks?

Winter is coming and how does one know the time at this latitude without one?

P.S. I grew up in the tropics.  The sun came up predictably between 05:30 and 06:30 all year round.  It was no problem to be up and at work by 07:00.   I really don’t know how to do this!

Try a full-spectrum lamp that has a timer in it – an alarm clock lamp! There seem to be a few brands out there, but the biggest one looks to be Verilux – it costs a lot more than I’m willing to spend on an alarm clock, though.

Thanks, Lou. Maybe they will loan me one. If I can trust it, anyone can!
