I've always had the hardest time waking up in the morning. My brain stays asleep while my body turns off the alarm. I then wind up back in bed asleep for another forever. Yeah, that works well. Ha!
Just got my 1st smartphone, though, and found an app that presents mental tasks the user has to complete before it will shut off. You can choose the sounds - either from alarm-like sounds or more pleasant ones - and choose/adjust the tasks presented. I am presented each morning now with, among 3 or 4 other tasks, math problems. And not ones that are easy when still asleep. This app is forcing me to wake up mentally to turn off the alarm. By the time I'm awake mentally, I WANT to get up. It works like a charm! :)
