Beat Your Travel Alarm Clocks to the Draw!

Sep 5, 2008
You have many of those infernal inventions man created to absolutely wreak havoc on your age-old biological patterns and decades-old psychological stability. And no, this is not the institution of marriage. These are travel alarm clocks - the types that scream like hellish banshees, explode like nuclear bombs, and buzz like millions of bees. (Come to think of it, when you have a spouse and kids, they do sound like those early in the morning)

And that is not the end of it - man has contrived to invent travel alarm clocks that give brain-cell frying electric shocks, call your cellphone contacts at unholy hours, and demand money like needy concubines if you do not wake up and kill, er, silence them.

Wake Up Early

Of course, you can skip the whole shebang when you wake up earlier than your travel alarm clocks. How to wake up early, you ask? Here are a few tips:

* Get a dog, especially a frisky puppy. Just imagine a puppy treating your face like an ice-cream lollipop, yapping in your ear, and nipping your tenders and you get the point. Besides, you rarely see a dog owner who is not an early riser, right?

A few words of caution are in order. A dog requires human care, often loads and loads of it. If you are not a pet lover, get travel alarm clocks that yip and yap like a herd of dogs and put them near your ears. Guaranteed to interrupt Sleeping Beauty herself, huh?

* Avoid sleeping pills even when you feel that you really need them to get a good night's sleep. You will have a hard time waking up in the morning, often with a less-than-refreshed feeling due to the chemical after-effects of said pills including slurred speech and slow reflexes. How about drinking milk, reading a bedtime story, and counting sheep instead?

* Wake up to light, artificial and natural. You can have an early-riser in the house open the window to let in sunlight directly into your face or to turn on the bedside lamp. Have him do this before your alarm clock starts doing its thing.

If you are traveling, you can ask the maid to knock on your door and request the desk to ring your room. Better the phone ringing than banshees on your travel alarm clocks screaming, right?

Understand Sleep Mechanics

There are many of these sleep mechanics, which could take you awhile to memorize. But the most important is that trying to catch up on sleep during the weekends will not make up for your bad sleeping habits during weekdays.

If you can, you should follow your body's natural pattern of sleep and wake cycles. Do not go to sleep unless you feel sleepy but do not deprive your body of much-needed sleep either. It is a fine balance between laziness and insomnia, which every normal person contends with.

You can consult self-help books on the matter, if you want more knowledge. The bottom line is the age-old adage of "Early to bed and early to rise makes a man, healthy, wealthy and wise". This way, you need not bother with alarm clocks.

Now, if you could only become richer by inventing the best travel alarm clocks yet. You know the ones that wake you up with a kiss?
