Perhaps "try" is not the best word for this intervention. The more consistent you become with going to bed and waking at the same time, the more your body learns to sleep and wake at those times. Once that has become routine, you can do things like turn the volume down lower and/or set the alarm for a few minutes later. You can gradually decrease the stimulus required to wake until your body naturally wakes at that time with no external stimulus.
