The Perfect Alarm Clock Will Fix Your Oversleeping Habit - THE FIRST DAY!


Teachers, parents, students, people of the world, humans - let's face it - mornings are rough for most of the general population.  We are all guilty of riding the snooze bus (beep beep) way too often! Those 8 minutes become 16, then 24, and then 32 - and then before you know it, its a dry shampoo and coffee in the car kind of day.  

I have become quite fond of my snooze button.  And as the school year winds to a close, I find myself majorly struggling to get out of bed.

This may not be a music or education post...but this is one we can all get on-board with, whatever walk of life we are in!

BAD ALARM ETIQUETTE

My alarms used to look like this....
This resulted in incessant alarms going off for what seems like every 3 minutes.  Yet, when did I actually get out of bed?!?!?!   6:15!!!!   Yes, really!  Completely ridiculous.  Not to mention my husband beside me probably wanted to smack me upside the head!










SOLUTION TO BAD ALARM ETIQUETTE! 

Kiwake is a paid app that I happened to stumble upon as some type of paid promotion in my Instagram feed.  Shamelessly, I clicked on the promotion and boy, I am sure glad I did!  I played around with the app and went through the tutorial quickly and easily.  The app is so friendly it makes you want to use it.  Here's a quick run-down of how I use the app and how it has helped me immensely:

CUSTOMIZE 

You can choose how many alarms you want to set, what days and times, you want them to go off.  This makes me super happy.  You can choose what alarm sound is used and all of them are quite pleasant and cheerful to wake up to.  Or you can choose a song from your own music library on your device!

NO SNOOZING ALLOWED


The best part of this app is that after a brief what they call "cool-down" (I call it "3 more minutes of sleep") period, the alarm goes off again and will not stop until you get out of your bed and take a picture of something around you that you pre-determined.  I chose to take a picture of either my shower handle or my toilet because that is where I would go first (pee then get clean, amiright?).  So you put the object into the view of your device camera and the app finds it a match and the alarm silences....briefly......

WAKE UP THE BRAIN!!!!

Once you've woken up your body by walking somewhere (for me, the loo), you have to wake up your brain.  The app makes you play one of these little games and you have to get a set number correct (you get to choose the difficulty and number of times to play) in order to move on to the next part of the alarm.   If you're not actually awake enough to pay attention, it can be very annoying to keep missing.  Force yourself to wake up and do well and you get to move on!  Two examples from the mini-games (also, you can test out the mini-games before you have to complete them with a 5:30 am fog-brain....they're actually quite fun!)
You have to touch the red tiles as they fall before they reach the bottom

A pattern of colored tiles as displayed.  Remember the pattern and recreate it.  

GET FOCUSED FOR THE DAY! 

The last step to turning off the alarm is to review your goals and motivation for the day.  You can customize this any way you want.  I kept mine simple to remind myself why I am awake and why I have to keep going (hey, remember!...so you don't ruin another day oversleeping!).  But you could very easily customize these the night before to help you remember the important things you need to remember that day.  Super cool and quite handy!  

I am hoping that this tool will help you get your mornings back and take on the day a little less rushed and a little more prepared!  I know it has for me! 

DISCLAIMER: I am not endorsed or paid by Kiwake for this review.  I am simply sharing a tool that has helped my days get started a little better!
