How to Become an early riser
This is really useful. I have also heard that one should always stop viewing TV or PC atleast 1/2 hours before sleeping. Is this true? I am a software engineer. This makes it difficult for me to stick to this advice. What are your suggestions?

I believe the idea that one should not watch TV before sleeping is to relax the mind. If you watch something that keeps your mind active or alert, then you can have a hard time falling asleep. However you can also do some relaxation/deep breathing exercises lying in the bed.

Yes, if you are struggling with some programming problem and then decide to go to bed you are not likely to fall asleep quickly. I suggest you do something relaxing - take a bath, go for a 15 min walk, read a book.
There are many more tips on how to wake up early and why, hope you'll find those that will help you become an early riser.

Steve has a couple of good articles about just this is you haven't got to read them yet....have actually made me reassess getting up earlier.
I find the days I actually get up WITH the alarm I get some time to myself to sit down and quietly and peacefully journal before the onslaught of the day...these days I feel so much calmer and able to deal with what is going on..oh OK, and a bit tireder! BUT have to say they really are my better days and it is a habit I am trying to get into as just a way of living - the goods certainly outweigh the bad.
Who can knock back seven extra conscious hours a week - that's almost an extra 'work' day to call my own.
