3 Guaranteed Ways To Make Sure Your Alarm Wakes You Up This Time

I have never been the person to not oversleep at least once a week.

61

Especially in college, waking up for those 8 am's is seemingly impossible. I picked up a bad habit of oversleeping and not even noticing at the beginning of this year. A couple of alarms on my phone is not enough power to get me out of bed; therefore, these are some ways to help you get yourself up in the morning.

Have an actual alarm clock... It's retro?

I know the whole reason people use their phones is so they don't have to have an alarm clock. I have found that having the two different sounds with the two different volumes helps me get up. I also set them at different times so that way if I do snooze one, the other one is not snoozed.

Sleep with your blinds open if you can.

If you live on the first floor or in a dangerous area, I wouldn't recommend but if you do live on a higher level I would suggest leaving the blinds open. When the sun rises in the morning, its a slow natural way to wake yourself up. The brightness is going to be enough for you to notice while you are asleep.

Put your phone in one place, and your alarm clock in another.

I have my alarm clock on the left side of my bed and my phone on the right so in the mornings when I try and turn them off it is harder. Getting me up and moving motivates me to just get up because I am already up.

I know some of these ideas seem a little extra, but they really do work and can help you start your day off better and on time. These ideas also won't allow you to snooze all of them in your sleep like I usually do. Each and every day is important and we all have places to be and people to see!

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
