QUESTION:

How many times do you hit the snooze

button?

Here’s how GON Readers responded… 24% Never! I rise and shine as soon as my alarm sounds 24% I wake up naturally without an alarm clock 14% Once...and then I get up 14% Three times or more...and then I "reluctantly" get up 11% Twice...and then I get up 10% Other 2% I never hear my alarm. Somebody else does, and wakes me up 1% I have several alarm clocks and I snooze them all repeatedly Other GON Reader Comments: My alarm is across the room, so it's not accessible to hit snooze. I wake before my alarm, usually. But if my alarm goes off, I get up immediately. Depends, I know when I HAVE to get up. Mostly twice, but if the day has a special goal, I get up directly. When we first got married, my husband and I made the agreement that neither would use the snooze button. It’s not fair to the other person who may have a later waking time. It’s rude to disturb their sleep every 7 minutes! So, we set the alarm, turn it off quickly and get up quietly. Happily married for 34 years. Alarm clock? What alarm clock?! I’m retired, but live in Belize where the birds, chickens and dogs all wake up at dawn. I get up about 30 minutes later. I set an alarm clock, but I often wake up in the middle of the night and have trouble falling back to sleep. If this happens, I will either change the alarm time or turn it off. I usually wake up naturally by 7 a.m., but since I work during the week, I try to set the alarm, so I can avoid being late to the office, if possible. I set the alarm on the weekend, because then I have the luxury of either getting up or turning off the alarm and sleeping as long as I want. Weird, but it makes me happy. Twice, but I have extra cushion time built in to let this happen. I do not like to wake up in a hurry. I need time to process the plans for the day. I still use a clock radio. I have it set to one of my favorite local stations and I wake to the music each morning. I find it better then any type of alarm. I'm retired. I get up when I want with no alarm clock. Sometimes I hit snooze once, but often get up beforehand (woken by partner talking or getting up). Retired, so no need for an alarm except for special occasions. Prior to retirement I would hit the snooze alarm repeatedly until I absolutely had to get up or I would be late for work! Now that I'm "retired" from stay-at-home-mom, I generally just sleep until I wake up naturally. On the days I have to get up at a certain time, I not only snooze, but I reset the alarm time…deciding while I'm half asleep that I just don't need that much time to get ready. Then, of course, I'm late! Never. Instead I set two alarm times, 5 minutes apart. I either get up during those five minutes, or wait for the second alarm. That’s less than “snooze” time.
