If you are anything like me, you are prone to setting an alarm and hitting snooze three to four times before actually waking up to get ready for the day. This is exceptionally true for those who sleep with a more traditional alarm clock that allows you to hit the snooze button as many times as you would like. For me, the toughest part of waking up is physically getting out of bed due to being so comfortable. Below is a list of non-traditional alarm clocks that require you to get out of bed and require some mental exercise to get you to wake up and start the day.
Weight Mat Alarm Clock– This is for the people who are awake mentally when the alarm clock goes off but would rather stay in their comfy oasis of blankets and softness. The Weight Mat Alarm clock is a rug that displays the time in the center of the rug and has a built in alarm clock. When the alarm sounds it forces you to get out of bed and step on the mat to turn it off.
Puzzle Alarm Clock– This particular Alarm requires using your mental capabilities that you lack after just waking up. When the alarm sounds the pieces of a puzzle go flying in the air, and you have to return the colored shapes to the correct places in order to shut it off. This will get you noodle engine running in time to start the day off.
Hide and Go Seek– This little gizmo is for those who like to hit the snooze button and get that little extra sleep. As nice as that is, this alarm clock will make sure that you do not hit the snooze button more than once. After hitting the snooze button once, the alarm jumps off your nightstand and begins moving around the floor, looking for somewhere to hide. When the alarm sounds again you must hop out of bed and look for this little guy to shut the alarm off. By the time you find it you will be mentally and physically awake.
Rocket Launcher– This is for those who lack the physicality of getting out of bed in the a.m. When the alarm sounds it will launch a rocket into your room, and the only way to turn it off is to locate the rocket and place it back on the launch pad.
Nobby Voice Alarm Clock– This alarm clock is particularly cool because it has voice recognition and allows you to ask Nobby questions regarding the time. The little alien like creature will start to talk to you in order to wake you up in the morning. He will of course start off sweet by complimenting you but if you decide to sleep in he does get more and more harsh.
These are just some fun and interesting ways to wake up and make the start of your day a little more physically and mentally demanding.
