LimaTunes Got Me Thinking!?!?!
Ok well I was reading her thread about her sleeping so well but still waking up to noises... well it go me thinking, I NEVER wake up in the middle of the night to strange noises, or any noises so to speak. I have been known to sleep through a fire alarm, so I am curious, how do I become a little less sound of a sleeper while asleep. Like how can I kind of get SA while asleep??

Get a good alarm system on your house. Put the siren in your headboard?

Get broken into and let yourself wake up to a stranger in your room with a ball bat over your head. I think you will sleep pretty lightly for a awhile.

Not the ideal way but you can not argue with the effectiveness.

Small alarms that can be fitted to critical doors will do it - I sleep a tad lighter these days but wake real heavy - but much more alert if cued by a shrill sound.

Get a good dog that know when to bark and to wake you up.
I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

Like any other alarm system you will at times get some false alarms but a false positive is better and more surviveable than a false negative.

A mouse fart in the next county wakes me up. I'm such a light sleeper that I have to have a fan or some other constant noise making machine to mask other sounds so that I'm not constantly waking up.
Anything louder than the fan in my bedroom and I'm as awake as if someone lit a fire under my feet.
I don't know how I got that way, but on a counter note, my husband slept through Three large glass bowls being broken in the next room. Our cats knocked them ALL off of the counter top in the middle of the night.
I was up in two seconds, COMPLETELY awake and alert. John was still snoring and even when I tried to wake him up, it took him at least another 30 seconds to understand what I was saying to him.
I think it's just nature. I don't know if you can change that.

Accomodation and prioritization. You can train yourself to do it. Go to bed fully clothed; go to bed w/o using a pillow (if you usually do); IOW do something that gets you in the mindset of having to "pop" into wakefulness.
Don't know that I would recommend dogs or alarms- I discovered, after getting married, that I went into a deeper sleep to be able to rest through the commotion of kids. I can still set my "internal alarm", but its not instinctive.

I'm a heavy sleeper too, but I have a Doberman that sleeps on the floor in my bedroom. She takes care of things at night time.

When I get into the deep part of my sleep nothing short of nuclear annihilation will wake me. I grew up sleeping in a bedroom that was about 50' from what was at that time the busiest highway in the US and about 100 yards from a rail crossing. I just learned to sleep through everything and have never gotten out of the habit.

Get a dog is probably the best advice...they'll get you up! I'm a sound sleeper...through noise, lights, TV, whatever, I hear nothing.
My wife is just the opposite, and wakes up at the sound of a...you know...one of those things that wakes Lima up...from the next county!
When I'm feeling a little 'frisky'...she sometimes then 'appears' to be a rather SOUND sleeper...
Stay armed...get a dog...stay safe!
