It’s amazing how your first few waking moments can set the tone for your entire day. I used to have my alarm clock set to the loud buzzer setting on the alarm clock. I used to be a heavy sleeper and the grating buzz buzz buzz was the only thing that would wake me up.
Now, I opt for music. But that took a while to work out too. Something too light, like classical, and it wouldn’t wake me up. Something too hard, and it’d wake me up, but then I’d usually start my day off in kind of a sour mood. Now, I have ye olde clock radio set to a nice middle of the road station. Enough energy to get me up, but not enough to jar me out of my skin. Now sometimes that first song I hear right out of bed gets stuck in my head for the rest of the day, but that’s a different story.
So what about you? Do you prefer music to wake you up? If so, what kind? If not, what gets you up in the morning?
