Do you set a grace period when setting an alarm clock?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (20356points) 2 days ago

Say you want to watch a show at 5pm? Do you set the alarm for 4:51? To give you time to get ready? Or to push sleep one time?

My cat is my alarm clock and there is absolutely no grace period.

The “grace period” is built in to when I set my alarm to get up. If I have to be on line at 5:15, I set my alarm for 5 so I can go to the bathrooom, drink some water, get some coffee, do all the log in steps.

When I have to wake up for something, I allow myself an hour. For TV reminders or errands, 5 to 10 minutes warning.

When I was working I set 4 alarms, 15 minutes apart. The first 3 were really gentle rings. The 4th one was Rush’s intro to Tom Sawyer.. That’ll blast you out of bed!

I usually set the alarm for ten minutes before actually getting up.
