Am about to start at a prodigous military academy in the UK and was wondering if I could have some advice on how to get up. I have heard that its better to slide your body up, until you are sitting on the pillow, then flick your legs out, which means you have only to tighten up the blankets for inspection. I have tried this at home and find that the sheet becomes quite creased, will I get away with this? Also, I have been told not to use an alarm clock, as there is not going to be one in the field and I must start "getting grip" on my body clock. I used to set my alarm, a half-hour early, and use the snooze function every five minutes until I have to get up. Will this annoy follow comrades? I would prefer to use the latter, but would not want to lose performance in the field. Would appreciate answers soon as have only 3 months to practise before I start.
