My morning alarm is set to music. Choosing the song is always a month long internal debate with myself. For a long time I was waking up to Jack Johnson's "As I was Saying". Mr. Johnson's light guitar vibe is a great way to gently wake up in the morning. I don't like the many alerts my iPhone comes with - way too jarring to wake up to. I like to be gently lulled awake. I recently changed my alarm song to You and I by Pink. The guitar opening is a nice way to start the day.
During my day there is podcasts, music or television on (sometimes in my house it's all 3!). When it's time for bed I always put in my earbuds and fire up a podcast. Right now I have been listening to my new crush, Marc Maron's podcast WTF. Now I'm the type of person who falls asleep 2 seconds after my head hits the pillow, so most times I only get to listen to the intro and I am out. But if I try to fall asleep without someone yapping my ear I will lay there for a long time trying to fall asleep.
I just saw that this existed...
Yes headphones and keeps my hair out of my face! I am sold!
