What gets you motivated in the mornings?

Alarm Clock - Picture of a cartoon alarm clock. A traditional style alarm clock as opposed to a digital alarm clock!

Sometimes especially in the winter I really have trouble getting out of bed. If I have to get up for something really important I end up putting my alarm clock out of reach so I have to get out of bed to turn it off! The only time I feel happy to get out of bed is when the sun is shining! What gets you motivated in the mornings?

nothing really motivates me except on fridays, ust knowing I only have to endure 8 hours and will have 2 days off - bounces me right out of bed. Lately - I have been looking forwad to coming to work just so i can sneak onto mylot and see whats going on.

well it really is hard for me to get up in the morning and stretch and do stuff.. id rather stay in bed with my dreams and my pillows.. but since i have to become responsible and i dont have the privilege to play around during classes anymore i try to wake up and really force myself to get up. the moment i get up i rush to get away from my bed so that i wont sleep again and go directly to the bathroom so that cold water may be able to refresh me and my sleeping mind so id wake up and not go back to sleep.. this is what i am doing recently and it somehow works.. so basically school is my motivation.. and i hate every single day of it.. i just want to sleep..
