Getting up in the morning has always been a problem for me, especially in winter. My body clock reminds me of a cartoon clock where the hands whizz around at random. It often leaves me exhausted during the day which leaves me vulnerable to my destructive subconscious patterns, as well as meaning everything is like wading through treacle.
I've found a solution! For the last month I have been using a daylight alarm clock. Instead of being jerked awake with an alarm and wandering around like a zombie, it gently wakes me with a false sunrise. I feel awake and alive. It appears to be keeping my body clock in check because I have even woken up at the correct time when I have forgotten to set it.
It isn't a perfect solution to sleep issues. I still have trouble getting to sleep. I still wake up several times per night. It is, however; helping me feel so much better. I highly recommend getting one if you have trouble getting up in the morning.
