|| mankind’s unanswered question – how to get up?

There are morning persons who wake up, are full of energy, and love life instantly. Hard to believe, but true. And there is the suffering rest of mankind who has to struggle every single morning. For them, getting up is a prolonged real-life nightmare. A lot of scientific research has been done on that so far. But one very basic question is still unanswered: How to get up in the morning in a good way?

No alarm clock screaming at you, but…

This alarm clock does not only wake you up, BUT also makes you a drink that you like. Sounds like your childhood, except for your parents being replaced by a machine and cocoa being replaced by coffee. Well… this has a dystopian touch. But don’t be afraid, it’s just adulthood.

All these alarm clocks have in common that they try to stimulate a sense that is not your aural sense. But let’s be honest. There is no good way. It sucks big times and you’ll never get used to it. Get used to that.
