So I like to stay up late and I like sleeping in. but this makes it so I don't wake up in time to say kriat shema. Is there any tips people can give me to overcome this? I already heard how you should imagine as if you had a business deal and could potentially make 10,000 dollars but that doesn't do anything for me.

Can you wake up with an alarm, say Krias Shema and then go back to sleep?

I mean theoretically....but if Im up I want to do the whole davening. Its just so hard for me to wake up on time. I like morning sleep too much. I know how important saying kriat shema at the proper zman and davening in general but its so hard.

I go to Touro College in LA. Classes don't start until the late afternoon.

Especially because it's so hard for you -- that's why you should do it. Hashem knows the effort and how hard it is for you. Your reward for the smallest effort will be beyond anything you can imagine.

My husband says, because it's so hard, that's how you know the value is so huge.

When I first became frum I would always get up super early to daven in my room. But then I got less enthusiastic about it and burned myself out. Now I just cant wake up in the morning.
