If you're like me, you set at least five alarms in the morning. And if you're really like me, you end up snoozing even that last one. I've learned to face the reality that I'm not a morning person at all (never wake me up for a sunrise, no matter how Instagram-able it may be). But, with that, I've also found some tools that either motivate me to get up, or help me look like I maybe didn't just wake up 10 minutes ago. Check the list below for some products that will fool even the peppiest 7 a.m.-yoga attendee into thinking that you're actually a person before noon.

Coffee, coffee and more coffee. Because honestly, the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning is the promise of having one (okay, two) cups of coffee immediately. Save time in the morning (read: snooze for a few extra minutes) by getting these easy packets from Starbucks: All you have to do is pour them into a cup of water, mix, and you're ready to take on the day!

I don't know about you, but I almost definitely sleep near or with my phone at all times, either to prepare for any breaking news alerts (from E!) or because I fell asleep while Insta-stalking an acquaintance. Which is harmless (as long as you don't accidentally like a picture), but it's bad for when said phone is also your alarm clock, meaning it is beyond easy to snooze it while in a midsleep daze. So, to force yourself up, why not get an alarm clock on wheels? While this sounds like some type of Legends of the Hidden Temple challenge that you don't want to do at 7 a.m., your boss will definitely appreciate it (aka not fire you for being late).

Some like it hot. But then there are some who just like it iced. This is where Grady's comes in to make your morning magical. That's right. MAGICAL. These cold-brew "bean bags" give you the chance to brew your very own a.m. cold brew. All you have to do is throw them in a carafe of water in the fridge overnight, and voila — your morning is that much more caffeinated.

As the self-proclaimed most important meal of the day, it's a bad move to skip breakfast. Unfortunately, it's also the hardest meal to have time to eat — especially when oversleeping is your favorite hobby. This is where these delicious (and good for you!) breakfast burritos come into play: get a balanced and filling meal ready for you in two minutes. Bonus points if you eat this while running to your train.

For those of you that are more a fan of the classic breakfast, but are still in a hurry. I mean, is there anything that could get you up faster than the thought of waffles? *Yummm*

Now, I'm all for getting lit — and sometimes getting too lit. But, usually, those next-day hangovers are part of the problem when it comes to getting up. Try subbing lit for LIT (low-impact training) once or twice a week in the morning! It's a quick and easy way to wake yourself up, and get yourself in shape for the summer.

Fool everyone into thinking you had enough time to shower this morning with the power of dry shampoo. No one will know the difference — or at least, no one will call you out on it, because this dry shampoo is amazing. And they're probably just as tired, too.

Getting dressed in the morning as someone who is not a morning person is one of the biggest challenges. That's why my life completely changed when I discovered that people make pants that look real, but are so fake. Take the ABC Pants from lululemon — they pair perfectly with a work shirt and nice shoes, come in a variety of colors, and are the most comfortable things you could ever wear. Talk about having your cake and eating it too (which you should definitely do in these pants, because they're a little stretchy!)
