Body biological clock

I want to wake up early every morning. I do some research on how to do so, and most of it suggesting to have a body biological clock. Try to sleep at the same time every night, and wake up at the same time every morning. By doing so, we can train and set our body clock accordingly and not even need an alarm to wake up every morning! I had try few times, but still failed due to lack of discipline. I try to sleep at 11.30 pm every night, but i always watch TV until midnight. As a result, I always reluctant to get out of my bed every morning, and sometimes afternoon. do anyone of you successfully set your body biological clock before? Can you wake up every morning easily without an alarm? what do you think? Happy mylotting =)

I think you have to make your body get used to it first. You need to make yourself wake up in the morning regularly. Try not to sleep too late at night, and once you're used to the wake up hour, you would not need the alarm anymore. When I was studying, I always take the last week of holiday to fix my body clock. I would sleep earlier and wake up earlier in the morning, so in the first day of school, I wouldn't have problem with waking up in the morning to go to school.

Hi Klaudine, thanks for posting here. Good, you can train yourself to wake up the next morning. I tried several times already, but still can't keep the discipline to sleep early at night.

I know the temptation to sleep late at night especially because at night the internet connection feels faster than at day, but if you're really want to do this, you have to make priority of your life, started with listed which one is more important, your night life or your day life. if your day life is more important, then your night life should be reduced, I think by thinking that way you would be able to conquer your will to sleep late at night. Good luck...

Hi Entreri, thanks for sharing here. I heard before we can re-adjust our sleeping time routine, by skip one night of sleeping. I can sleep around 11pm, but i just get addicted to watch TV series. Have a nice day !

you might want to consider what you eat or drink and how late it is. no tv watching this is a stimulate and will keep you up, try reading this helps people fall asleep. a warm glass of milk will help you fall asleep, you can train your body to wake up after a few months of getting up with an alarm. fyi, its unhealthy to sleep more than 8 hours in a consecutive period.

I find that making yourself get out of bed at the same time, every morning, no matter what time you went to bed the night before is really the key to acheiving this. And no napping in the afternoon just because you went to bed later than normal, as this will just make it harder for you to get to bed at a decent time that night again, and it will become a never ending cycle. For a while, i actually had a job where i worked the same hours every day, and i got up at 8 am every morning. After a while of doing this, i found i would wake up at 8 am even on my days off from work, and would actually start waking up a minute or two before my alarm would go off in the morning. My body just eventually got used to being up at 8, no matter what. Granted, i still set my alarm clock everynight, just in case, because i am a worrywart and hate being late LoL

It doesn't work for me anymore because I haven't kept myself trained to do it, but when I was in college I was able to wake myself up without an alarm clock. I still always had it set just in case, but most of the time I would wake up 1-2 minutes before it would go off. That was the time in my life when I had a very set schedule. I always made myself go to bed exactly 8 hours before I needed to get up, so it all worked out for me, but it did take a while to get used to it. Since I no longer have a set schedule, I normally just do as I see fit to do. I go to bed when I want to and I wake up when I want to.

Hi dorannmwin, thanks for sharing here. Wow, you really had a set schedule back in college. Now I'm still studying, and having the most unscheduled time since from the past 6 years. It's very hard for me as i used to study and do my research late at night. Plus my addiction to watch tv series, making everything worst. Sigh..

Hi de_angel, after Easter this year I decided to change my sleeping patterns and sleep earlier, about the same time every night, as I have to be up each morning at 7 to get my son up for school. It worked like a dream, I had better sleep that way than in years, I even started setting the alarm for half an hour earlier than I needed so I could have a peaceful coffee first. I could lie in on a Sunday but was still waking early. Then the 13 week hols started and it's all gone to pot, I can sleep really late, no option really as it's too hot to sleep earlier, but do get up as soon as I wake up. But of the two the regular routine is much better.

The biological clock is within everybody.But training to wake up at the right time everyday is difficult.If you have a scheduled life daily,then it is possible.Say,you are a student or an office goer,then you can train and practice your sleeping hours.But a business man like me have no schedules.Some days,I have to wake up soon and some days I have to sleep late and so I can't train my body clock.Cheers!

Thanks srganesh for sharing. Yea, it is very difficult for me, i really need the discipline to schedule my life properly. I am a student, but yet i love to watch drama until 2,3 a.m. It is very hard to control myself, stop the watching and go to bed. Now I'm trying to set my biological clock, again.. Cheers =)

Yes, my biological clock is all set. I usually wake up at the time that I want myself to wake up even without an alarm clock. I have read a certain book when I was in high school on how to utilized our own body clock. One of the way to do it, is to picture a clock before sleeping and picture the short hand and long hand at the very time that you want to wake up. This should be done when you are already in bed and about to sleep. It really worked for me. So now, I continue to do it.

My hubby wakes up at the same time every day, but I can't do it. For years I had sports practice at 5am. Everyday I would have to get up and my body never got used to it or woke itself up. Maybe I am just defective and for most people it works out.
