MANILA, Philippines – Waking up early in the morning is hard to do. Apart from wanting an extra 5 minutes because your comfy bed doesn’t give you any reason to leave it, sometimes you just want to stay away from the daily grind and do nothing for a few hours.
But living in the real world, you need to get up and move and an extra push to get you going will help a lot. How about having your loved ones as your alarm clock no matter where you are and what time you need to get up?
Yes, it’s possible.
#WakeUp: have a brighter day ahead
Typical alarms can wake us up, but admit it, the same tone every single day will cause you to press that snooze button. And that sound may even start to get on your nerves. It may be effective but it doesn’t get you pumped up for the day ahead.
At a time when technology is applied to everything that we do, even the simplest things such as an alarm, there are a variety of apps made available online (and for free) to get the job done.
But what happens when people take waking up and morning alarms to a whole new level? Voila, you have the WakeUp app!
You can record videos of your friends and family trying to wake you up with their weird antics or be as loud as they can to make sure you’re awake at a certain time. You can even share it with your friends as long as they have the app too.
You can be as creative and interact with friends. It’s simple and it works, especially for those sleepyheads who are always hitting the snooze button. See for yourself!
