Do you usually wake up fresher than the Prince of Bel Air at the crack of dawn or complete fifty sun salutations before most of us have hit snooze? Reality check: it’s not going to last. After non-stop nights of cheap mixers and Tuesday cheese, making that 8.30am lecture will become a feat more difficult than baptising a cat. Moving from soothing to sadistic, here are the wake-up apps you’ll need:
Sleep Cycle (£0.79)
Now you can ‘sleep smart’, this app monitors your movement with fancy graphs and wakes you in your lightest sleep phase for a fresh feel. Not for heavy dozers.
Zen Awake (Free)
Gradually awaken to the sounds of the Tibetan singing bowl and enjoy some morning inspiration with a quote from a historical wise one with this spiritual snooze-stopper.
Walk Me Up (Free)
Alarm-stroke-pedometer where you set the steps to shut it off.
Only as brutal as you make it.
Does what it says on the tin. Not hangover friendly.
Alarmy (Sleep If U Can) (£1.49)
Walk to target destination. Take photo. Stop alarm.
Cry inside because it’s too early. Works, though!
This sassy-talking bi(app)tch insults you when you snooze, working you awake with a series of ‘chores’. Super effective, outrageously annoying.
