If you have trouble motivating yourself to achieve the smallest of accomplishments, let alone get out of bed in the morning, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson may have the answer to your lazy prayers.
The former wrestler has created new app The Rock Clock, complete with an array of 25 incentivising alarms and goals to reach, including learn a new language and losing 10 pounds.
Videos and messages from the man himself will be uploaded to the app daily, which can be used as an alarm by leaving the app open when you go to sleep and activating sleep mode.
True fans can even sync their alarm with The Rock's, which can go off as early as 4.15am to enable him to hit the gym before shooting the new Baywatch film, in which he is playing David Hasselhoff's character Mitch Buchannon. The app is available for free for Android and iOS.
Alongside his status as one of the all-time wrestling greats, The Rock has carved out a niche as a lovable, hard-working and inspiring family man, and is renowned for his intense self-discipline.
The actor regularly provides insights into his life via his Instagram feed, sharing stories of the fans he's met through the Make-A-Wish foundation and other charitable organisations, buying cars for his mother and his adventures with his French bulldog Hobbs.
The 44 year-old has also candidly spoken about his past battles with depression after being dropped from his Canadian football team when he was 23.
"You're not the first to go through it, you're not going to be the last to go through it and oftentimes you feel like you're alone and you feel like it's only you and you're in your bubble," he said. "You've just gotta remember, hold onto that fundamental quality of faith. Have faith, and on the other side of your pain is something good."
