Anyone successfully not use an alarm?
llb827 posted:
I know that alarm clocks are generally bad for most people as they can wake you up in the middle of REM or deep sleep. I know this happens to me all the time-- almost every day I am woken up in the middle of dreams that I think are probably REM dreams. I am messed up for hours when this happens. It's a miracle I can stumble out of bed and brush my teeth.

I know you can supposedly train yourself to wake up without an alarm by going to bed at the same time every night and keeping track of when you wake naturally, then you can time things in 1.5 hour increments to guess if you will be in REM/deep sleep when you need to get up for work. I've just never had enough days in a row when I don't need an alarm to do all this! Anyone have other techniques or successfully become non-alarm clock people?
