comment wake yourself up on time
What's the point of this question? What's wrong with the simplest solution? Are you looking for a method that meets your particular criteria (what are they?), or just a laundry list of all possible methods, no matter how impractical?

comment Is it possible to learn foreign languages effectively by watching tv series?
Very good point about remembering to turn off the subtitles after a while. I'd say it might be good to even do that periodically early on, to try to push yourself and not let your brain get used to getting all the information on a platter.

comment Does fluctuating sleep habits decrease productivity?
Is there really evidence that sleeping less than 8 hours some days is likely to lead to ADD? Could you include a link? This sounds pretty surprising, and would probably cause a lot of people to change their sleep habits if it was widely known.

comment How do I take quick notes in odd places to maintain mind like water?
@Belisama - Yeah, I agree with you on purses and don't know much about them or how easy it is to find non-awful ones. But a leather passport pouch type thing sounds good.

Damn, I can't imagine how annoying it must be to not have pockets. Sounds like another reason to stay in academia and as far away from jobs requiring fashionable professional attire as possible...

comment Is it beneficial to shower with cold water?
"burning calories" does not mean something is good for you. However, waking yourself up is useful enough.

comment What is a good way to begin your work day?
I don't know, that would be much more likely to get me into a "spend all day reading technology blogs" mood...

comment Equipment for computer-printing, into a notebook
Why can't you just print things out and use a binder, though? It seems vastly simpler and quicker than attempting to print onto bound notebook pages.
