I tried the whole setting an alarm clock further away thing to force yourself up. But being the lazy fuck I am, I just go, turn off the alarm, go back to sleep.

Any good way of forcing myself to stay awake after the alarm goes?

I just set my alarm clock for that time and get up. Maybe put it across the room if that's a problem.

I feel like that might give me some bed issues later on. You know, stuff like mold.

This is the mindset I need. I keep fucking trying to justify sleeping a little later in the morning. Just need to get up and deal with it.

get out of bed as soon as you hear the alarm

continuing to lie down or even just sitting in bed for a bit will likely have you staying in bed a lot longer than you want

Buy a rubber mattress.

Or better yet set up a hydraulic system below your mattress that tilts the mattress so it rolls you out of bed.

Set it an hour earlier. Then you can safely be on time and have that extra snooze.

It's at 6:30 right now. I'm considering bringing it down to 6, but I really don't need to get up earlier than that.

These are definitely modern solutions to my modern problem.

Really, I think I just have to get into the mindset that once alarm goes off, I'm up and that's that.

There's an Android app called Sleep that gives you some alarm options. Like you can have a math problem like in post #16. Most importantly is that it has a QR feature where you can assign a QR code to your alarm so you can only turn it off if you scan the code. Get the QR code, print it and stick it on your bathroom mirror or something so it forces you to get up.

Get a cat and get it on the routine of feeding it when you need to be out of bed. That cat will make sure you are out of bed at the right time.

That's genius but couldn't you just plug some earphones into the phone and go back to sleep?

You could also take the battery out or pour water on it.

I have mine in steps. 8:45, 8:55, 9:00, 9:05, but I never use the last one. It's just an incase thing.

I could be wrong, but I think they alarms play through the speaker even if you have earphones plugged in.

Have something to look forward to in the morning.

Me, I wake up ready to go to the gym, then go for a run. I love those two things so I'm always excited to wake up.

This. Take sleeping pills at first if you need them.

Get this app called Sleep Cycle. It has an intelligent setting where you set your wake up time for 30 minute intervals, then it gently wakes you up by turning on the alarm quietly and giving you the option to snooze, gradually getting louder until it goes full tilt at the end of your wake up time.
Ive been using it for years and the only reason I stopped is because I got an Amazon Echo and that has better alarm sounds.

If no one has said it yet.... Drink a lot of water. That will keep you from sleeping too long.
