Are you awakened by an electronic alarm (clock, music, phone, etc) most days?
Weird, but never. Reliable internal clock...and an early rising husband. Oh, and the dog (:0)
I get woken up by kids and cats:)
I've been using alarms lately as backups. I tend to wake up sometime before them by up to 20 minutes.
or I'd sleep all morning!!
I used to use an alarm before I had kids!
If I didn't wake up with some kind of alarm, I wouldn't have a job right now.
What else is there 2 wake u up besides your mommy maybe
I use my phone for my 5 alarms, and each alarm plays a different snippet of some of my favorite songs. By the time I hear the last one I'm generally more conscious and I know that sound means it's go time. I change all of the alarm tones once a month to make sure I don't get too used to them.
@Jezebel Not everyone consciously hears their alarm at first. Other people need to be woken up gradually, as coming out of deep sleep can be jarring. I myself am a light sleeper but being woken up suddenly and having to function right away makes me nauseous. I set 5 alarms so as to prevent this.
my kid wakes me up :)
I'm like Cosmo Kramer I have an internal alarm. I wake up at 6:45 every morning without fail.
I don't use an alarm -- naturally wake up when the sun rises.
my good ol trusty iPod :)
I never use an alarm... great internal clock I don't know why I just wake up when I need to...
I just leave the blinds up and normally wake with the sun, occasionally my clock alarm plays back up.
Interesting. I'll look into that. Thank you:
Also, I use two alarm clocks and the alarm on my phone. Any less and I sleep right through it.
@TH3SHURIF There used to be an app for that. It was called holywars (many religious debates took place there). Unfortunately, that app has been left in a state of disrepair by it's developer.
I can't believe all the people that use snooze more than once. Wow, just get up already
My phone wakes me up. Every morning up at 5 for a run.
That'd be cool if this app went global and we had an interactive 3D model of the earth to see what place votes what.
Two on my iPod and one on the ihome. I'm a heavy sleeper
Nope...nore like crying baby....
I could not function without some sound waking me up! Have 3 types of alarms( clock,phone, and iPod) and click snooze button until half hour after I was suppose to wake up. I hate mornings ;(
If I didn't have an alarm clock for weekdays...I'd be screwed!
What's up with Hawaii? Superior Circadian rhythms?
Tony, can you make a SOH Internet forum, so that we can bash each other more conveniently. this will be a good thing IMO.
anyone else think that Q: mark above the poll results looks like the quiznos logo?
@rushing amen to that
@eradicator If you can add ringtones to your phone you can add Beethoven's 8th sonata.
Well I have a baby so all u parent know u don't need an alarm!!!!!
Never have been a sleeper
I woke up only twenty minutes ago. (( _ _ ))..zzzZZ meh
Self employed, I wake up unassisted at 8:00 every morning.
My old phone had Beethoven's 8th sonata as a built in alarm I could use. Ahhhhh. The only thing I miss about that phone.
LOL 3rdSide...you gave me an idea!!! I love your wife's way of thinking. My fiancee has one of those old bell alarms top. The one where that metal thing moves between two dingers. I LOATHE that thing!
@Gayisokay...I know exactly what you are saying. Every time I hear one on TV my heart starts racing!
My fiancee sets his 2 hours in advance then hits snooze every 9 minutes. He has 2 alarms and he set the TV to come on at 5 a.m. at the loudest volume. I don't usually need my alarm because I'm up way before the time I need to be. He says, "how can you wake up to that? I sleep right through it."
Thank God for naps, when you can make 'em happen :)
Krfoster, I empathize, dear - been doing a lot of that myself lately - hang in there!
until after lunch when he wakes up. When the last Perseid Meteor shower happened both of my alarms were going for over 2 minutes before I awoke.
Checked to see how much sleep the average teen needs. At least when he told me to set my alarm for 9 hours and 15 minutes he gave me the upper end of the spectrum, although my mom tends to be up even before that (I either see my dad when I wake up and then he goes to bed before breakfast, or not...
Tocky? He'd probably break the first time he tried an 8 foot fall off of my bed :)
I rarely sleep past 0700, even if I went to bed at 0200. I try to go to bed by 2000 and therefore wake up before 0600 most of the time without an alarm. However, due to stuff I need to get done, my dad recently...
I wake up at 4:55! GO MARCHING BAND! gotta love it :) :)
My iPhone has never failed me. Funny, I don't have a real job but I'm the one up at 5:00 am to go run, cook breakfast, and wake everyone else. I should probably go on strike now that I think about it!
Nope My Mom Wakes Me Up
Gotta get up & get the kiddos to school in the morning so yes. Sucks that it will go off 2 hours from now & I can't sleep as usual.
Yes, or I'd be 3 hours late everyday and no I do get near enough sleep. Work week + OT + working on my Masters =| Someday, maybe! I hope. Please.
..I have reminders to cleanup my store & lockup or again I'll keep workin past dinner. I have alarms for my son to take his rxs. I have alarms set for sunset & dusk everyday so I try to have everybody in the house by dark. Did I mention I have memory issues? & both my sons & I also have ADHD
..I have 1 alarm for my 12-yr-old & 3 to keep myself on track when I'm supposed to be getting ready for work & to let our 3 dogs outside. I have to remind myself when it's lunchtime or I'll work right thru..
