Americans Take Two Snoozes & 24 Minutes To Get Out Of Bed


Waking up in the morning is really, really hard for some people, and a new survey reveals just what it takes to get some people out of bed.

According to the poll:

  • 49% of people say they're usually late in the morning because they are just too comfortable in their beds.
  • In order to wake up, most Americans set an alarm on their smartphone, although 24% still use an old-fashioned alarm clock.
  • It takes most Americans two alarms and hitting snooze twice before they wake up.
  • After that, it takes them another 24 minutes to actually get out of bed and start the day.
  • Americans will change their alarm times an average of 38 times a year.
  • As for what helps some people wake up easier:
    • 60% say having exciting plans for the day is key.
    • 41% say soaking up the sun helps them get up.
    • Three-quarters of people say having a morning routine motivates them to get out of bed. 

But most people simply don’t love waking up in the morning, and there are plenty of things that will cause them to wake up in a bad mood, including:

  • Staying up too late watching TV (48%)
  • Negative event in personal life (38%)
  • Uncomfortable mattress (35%)
  • My partner tossing and turning (33%)
  • Street noise (27%)
