Every day, I need to wake up at 7, and my girlfriend has to wake up at 8. This is all part of a carefully scheduled day plan and a compromise of both standing up sometime in between is not an option. How would I wake up without waking her up? I tried a couple of things:
- Sleeping with earphones for a personal alarm. But sleeping among a bunch of cables is uncomfortable enough when you're sleeping alone, and doesn't get better with more people in the bed.
- Earplugs for her. Doesn't work, since sometimes she's not woken up by her own alarm at 8.
- An alarm starting at low volume, increasing slowly. As a bonus, the phone is also near me on the bed, so sometimes the vibrations accompanying the alarm wake me up before the alarm is loud enough. This is what we use right now, since I'm a lighter sleeper. It works sometimes, but I don't know of any better option.
