Do you use alarm to wake yourself up?

Alarm clock - Alarm clock is a good thing to wake people up early in the morning. Usually you set up the alarm clock before going to bed and in your dreams wait till it's starting to play sounds which means, you have to wake up.

It's a real Murphy's Law with my waking up and alarms. I am a person who loves mornings, sunrises and silence outside before everyone is getting up to go to work. But the thing is, I easily wake up early on weekends and other free days but to wake up on working day I need alarm which I reset 3-4 times till can wake up. What it could be?

Hi Lindery, I am using an alarm clock for getting up. Now I used to wake up from the sleep on the time before alarm bell starts but just wait for the bell. On holidays many people have the same habit, waking up without the help of alarm bell, may be it is because of the mindset. They know that the day is a holiday and want to enjoy the day with a refreshed mood. So the happiness helps to them to wake up early.

yeah I use an alarm to wake up , it's my mobile but believe it or not it doesn't work to wake me up , when it rings at 05:00 in the morning obviously I grab my mobile , deactivate the alarm , swtich it off and put it under my pillow , and when I wake up I won't know I've even touched the mobile haha

I use my cell phone alarm as a back up.I try to go to bed at approximately the same time every night so my body should still feel ready to get up at my set time.After as little as a week of using a regular bed time and wake-up time, I can wake up at about the correct time before my alarm goes off...I enjoy awakening without the harsh jolt of the alarm.

Yes, I do some times..that's when I am tired before going to sleep and I'm not so sure that I will wake up that early in the morning. But honestly there were times that I woke up before the clock's alarm, maybe it's kinda instinct.

I am exactly the same way!! Every weekend I swear up and down I'm going to sleep in! Then I end up waking up at 4 AM. During the week I have to get up at 5 Am and need the alarm clock! I hate getting up and feel tired most all days lol...on the weekends I'm up bright eyed and bushy tailed.

No I dont use alarm usually to wake up in the morning. But in specials occassions to get up early that usual time I use alarm and not for daily use.Habtually, I used to get up daily morning at 6 am without alarm. Even if it is holiday I get up at 6 in the morning.

I have the same problem! I need my alarm to wake me up to get the kids ready for school, and to get us all off to either work or school.... but, on my days off, I wake up either right around when I would during the rest of the week - or before! It frustrates me!

i need an alarm like you on working days where I would snooze the alarm like you for every five minutes,thus extending my sleep to more than fifteen minutes.I think the laziness and the stereo type jobs awaiting us needs the alarm and the Sundays are full of free time where we like to enjoy and raise up without an alarm.
