It Took 5 Minutes!

For some reason, that I don`t really know, I have had a change in my night hours. Instead of bed before or at midnight I have been going to bed at 2 am. This makes me have to use the alarm clock to wake up and its cut me a couple hours of sleep. I need my sleep, I work hard and sleep hard. This morning I finally woke to the beeping of the alarm, I turned over and looked and the clock had been beeping for 5 minutes! This is not good. Tonight I will force myself to go to bed, even if I read myself to sleep, which I do anyways, I will go to sleep faster. Do you need an alarm to wake?

No, I do not need an alarm if I wakes up at my usual time around 5 am. If for some reasons I need to wake up earlier I need an alarm.

@andriaperry I prefer to go to sleep earlier, 10:30 or 11 PM. I never get up after 6:30 am.

I used an alarm when I was working, but now that I am retired, for some strange reason I wake up at 7 a.m. each morning, so no alarm clock.

I am guilty of this. Yes if I need to wake up at a certain time I use an alarm but alarms are like my enemy, sometimes I won't even hear them or I will fall back asleep unexpectedly when I turned off the alarm. Then my mom has to wake me up which scares me so bad that I end up crying. And this is why I do everything in the evening or not sleep if I have to wake up early.

I dont usually need an alarm, but I dont usually need to get up at a certain time. As long as I am moving by 9 most mornings I am ok with starting chores.

Dang, that's gotta be a bummer. I'm so glad I don't have a schedule I have to follow. I usually fall asleep when I watch TV, maybe that would work for you as well.

No, i don't need, I think my brain already knows when I have to wake up and usually I wake up 5 minutes before the alarm clock ring.

When I am through with the job, in a few days no, I will not need an alarm unless I want one. I may want one I am thinking that in order to beat the heat in the summer I should get up and outside really early, nap mid day and then get up for a while in the evening. I slept through the alarm this morning but still was up in plenty of time.

Even before the baby arrived, I seemed to have this internal clock that when I know a time I have to be up I either wake about 20 minutes before or wake up way before and can't go back to sleep. I may have had to reply on an alarm a hand full of times in my whole life.

As I can't hear, alarms aren't of benefit to me!! So the hubby wakes me up, while I'm making his breakfast and lunch he rests a while more.

I like to get up and get awake a few hours before I have to drive, I have to drive 20 minutes to 1 hour to any doctor.

Yes, many days I need that alarm. But what's funny in an unusual way is when I have an appointment that morning and need to be up early to get ready, I wake up before my alarm goes off. Go figure?
