Getting up in the morning

Hello, I thought I'd post this as a problem as I'm sure other users have the same one!

I'm definitely not a morning person, getting up in the morning is most definitely not something that comes easily, but I worked hard this year to get myself into a routine and I found it getting much easier and waking up was no longer the horror it always had been, which made life much easier!

However now it's dark in the mornings again, I'm finding it harder and harder to wake up. Yesterday and today has been the first time in months that I've hit 'snooze' on my alarm clock (and this morning it kept on getting snoozed and snoozed!).

Does anyone have any tips for getting up in the morning (especially ones that are specific to the winter months?)

Thanks!

There could be other cheaper ones but these work by waking you up slowly so you feel it getting lighter like you would in the summer months
Also as soon as you are up have a shower to wake yourself up

I agree with the daylight clock. I have one and they're fab.

The other thing I often do is leave my phone (which is also my alarm) at the other side of the room. That way I am forced to get my feet on the floor and turn it off. Once you're out of bed the hardest part is over.

I also can vouch for the daylight clock. My ex had SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and it used to work for him.
