Key to Waking Up in the Morning Is Listening to a Totally Sweet Jam

It turns out that getting woken up by a horrible buzzing noise ISN'T the best way to kick off a great day. Who could've guessed?

According to a new study out of Australia, the best way to wake up more alert and less groggy is . . . waking up to a song you like.

And it should be an upbeat song, so even if your favorite hot jam isJohnny Cashsinging"Hurt", that probably won't work.

In the study, people had to play a video game involving fast reflexes right after they woke up . . . and the people who woke up to music did better than people who woke up to a classic alarm.
