When you wake up on a morning, do you get up in stages or jump out of bed as soon as your eyes are open?

Asked by ucme (39486 points ) December 12th, 2010

A deep sleep lasting the night through & you’re woken by the intrusive yet inevitable early morning alarm. Do you hit snooze & have a little extra nap time? Maybe a rigorous & exaggerated stretch together with some cuddling into your partner buys you some prolonged rest. Or, are you up & at em ready to face the world immediately on being woken from your slumber?

If I’ve got to be to work then I get up right away and push push push until I hit the road. Only when I work later in the morning do I let myself schlep about in bed and enjoy the absolute wonder of snuggling. Ahhhh.

This is how I handle most mornings,and some afternoons…if I ‘m not all worn out from handling the mornings that way ;)

I need a few minutes (or more) to come round. I usually listen to the radio for a bit before actually getting up (especially these cold winter mornings) @lucillelucillelucille If I lived with Debbie Reynolds I would have to shoot her.

As soon as I awake I put on a happy face, give the dogs a cuddle and get out of bed within one minute. I suppose I am fortunate in that I don’t need an alarm clock, I wake naturally at more or less the same time each morning.

Depends on what woke me up. If it’s 6:00 on a school morning, I’ll take my time. If it’s my alarm at 3:00 before I have to do something for school that I forgot the night before or for having to leave early to travel, I find myself out the door upside-down on fire before I realize that I’m awake.

I’ve never been a sound sleeper. When I wake up my back is usally stiff and sore so I have to be kind of slow when getting up or else I’ll probably strain something. Also, must be careful not to bump the cat off the bed. Once I get up and turn the lights on or open the curtains to the day light and have a cup of coffee I’m good to go. Oddly enough, even though I don’t sleep well at night, I usually don’t get sleepy during the afternoon and I’m not a nap person at all. Once I’m up, I’m up.

I close my eyes, roll over, and go back to sleep…

I am naturally a morning person, so once I am awake, I get up usually.

It takes me ages to wake up. Sometimes I set my alarm for literally hours before I need to be up and I still wind up being late. I’m not grouchy if I’m woken up, though. Just silent.

On weekdays I always hit snooze a coupla times. On weekends, me getting out bed is much akin to a slug.

I just get up. Not that I never hit snooze, but for the most part when I’m up, I’m up. I just get right out of bed.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

I fall out of bed before my eyes are open. I hope you don’t need more detail than that.

No snooze. I get right up, pee, then make some coffee.

The alarm clock hasn’t been set in over a year, and I’m generally up by 5:30am. For me, there is nothing better than waking up and getting the day started before the sun makes an appearance.

AmWiser's avatar

I get right up as soon as the bathroom calls me, which is usually between 5 and 6 a.m.

I take an extremely long time to wake up. My dad comes and wakes me up around 6, then I go back to sleep. About 10 minutes later he comes and wakes me up again, and tries to talk to me to get me to wake up, which promptly earns him a “shut up” and some more amounts of yelling and/or pushing to get him to leave. He then reminds me not to go to sleep again, which I agree to. Then I go to sleep for about 20–30 more minutes until I finally decide to get up. By that time it’s 6:40 or 6:50 and I have about 10–20 minutes to get ready for school.

Hey, I never said it was efficient!

My alarm goes off at 5am, but I am usually already awake. I listen to 5 minutes of the network news, and get up.

YARNLADY's avatar

I’m one of those get up immediately. My husband drives me nuts every morning because he hit the snooze every 15 minutes for an hour and often I have to reach over an wake him up before he finally gets out of bed.

ChocolateReigns's avatar

I hardly ever even hear my alarm, which goes off at 6:45. I usually end up getting woken up by my mom or sister at 8 or so. I’m usually not upstairs until 8:30. One of the many joys of being home schooled. :D Unless something important is happening that I need to get going for, I’m in a really bad daze until 9 or 9:30.

Dag nabbits, if I am alone I have to have the prealarm alarm, then the real alarm with many snooze periods. If I am not alone my fiancee finds ways to wake me up, but then I feel like going back to sleep after she is fiunished waking me up.

Once I wake up, I have to lie on my belly for a while. I usually fall back asleep in this position. I think my back likes the stretch.

Leanne1986's avatar

I never hit snooze. As soon as I hear the alarm, I switch it off get out of bed straight away.

Rhodentette's avatar

It takes me hours to get out of bed. I don’t set an alarm unless I have to work. If I don’t have to work, I lie in bed after waking, maybe reading, mostly just thinking. When I work, however, I wake up with the alarm and then hit snooze maybe twice before dragging my half-revived corpse out of bed.
