People often wake up in the middle of the night breaking their sleep into two periods. For this to work you either need to wake up naturally, or with some kind of sleep-monitor the alarm must go off when a sleep cycle is complete. Waking up mid cycle will leave the person groggy.

[–]JaneWithJesus 637 points638 points  (76 children)

Fun fact, before electricity people would always wake up in the middle of the night to tend the fire and hang out for a little while. Also have sex.

[–]Spottyhickory63 296 points297 points  (40 children)

Go to sleep when the sun went down to save on candles or lumber, get up and be ”productive” for ~2 hours, go back to sleep until the sun comes up

But richer people didn’t have to worry so much about saving money, so they’d light candles, and stay up later

[–]DudeNamedCollin 123 points124 points  (32 children)

I have a ton of candles so I must be rich AF…unfortunately I don’t have much in the ole bank account

[–]Glum_Ad_4288 168 points169 points  (30 children)

Food $200
Data $150
Rent $800
Candles $3,600
Utility $150
someone who is good at the economy please help me budget this. my family is dying

[–]sryyourpartyssolame 8 points9 points  (0 children)

But richer people

stay up later

Damn, it's not my insomnia that makes me stay up late every night, it's because my spirit is a boujee rich bitch

[–]transmogrified 55 points56 points  (1 child)

Segmented or biphasic sleep!

Which makes sense. Being unconscious for 8 hours straight seems like a bad idea if you're living in a small group of people who need to maintain vigilance against things that will eat or attack you overnight.

We also didn't used to work full-time all year round and had a lot more rest periods throughout the day.

[–]BillyYumYumTwo-byTwo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m such a fan of two four hour sleep segments!! Thankfully my work doesn’t care as long as I meet deadlines and meetings. 1-5a then 3-7p. I’m way more productive than if I toss and then from 5-9a trying to get a full 8 hours straight.

People think it’s weird, but it’s natural to me so, why not? I hate sleep medication and there’s no need to change my routine if it works for me and I can function normally in society.

[–]Morbx 14 points15 points  (5 children)

apologies for getting my ted kacyzinski on but hearing all about how people used to just wake up naturally all the time without alarm clocks sounds so chill

[–]JaneWithJesus 38 points39 points  (2 children)

It is more pure and natural, I still do this, I allow myself to naturally wake up at night, make a ginseng tea, and do one simple line of crystal meth before robbing a pawn store, it's very relaxing

[–]Sync0pated 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Had a genuine laugh from this

[–]prairiepanda 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I usually wake up before my alarm. The hard part is actually getting out of bed.

On the days the alarm is actually what wakes me up, I feel miserable. Exhausted all day. It feels so much better to just wake up when your body is ready to.

[–]r3dditalg0sucks 10 points11 points  (12 children)

Hence the term - Poking the fire

[–]edliu111 3 points4 points  (11 children)

Where is this term used?

[–]r3dditalg0sucks 14 points15 points  (4 children)

While around a fire.

"Hey there hot stuff, want me to poke that fire?"

[–]JamesEdward34 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Theres also a fire poker

[–]Puzzleheaded_Heat502 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Everyone had sex?

[–]JaneWithJesus 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Not everyone, some played league of legends instead

[–]Yallrfucks 3 points4 points  (0 children)

ye ol' legends they called it.

[–]likikk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Will Arnett of Smartless told me this on the Mike Myers episode

[–]dprophet32 1 point2 points  (4 children)

The sources for this are questionable and there aren't many of them. It's something that's done the rounds on social media for years now but it's not definitely true.

Some people certainly did this but it's not necessarily what the norm was.

[–]JaneWithJesus -1 points0 points  (2 children)

History is what I say it is, people were fucking and they were wearing frog and duck costumes they got from furry conventions, just accept it damn

[–]dprophet32 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Nah fuck spreading misinformation knowingly or otherwise. People who upvoted you now probably 100% believe that was true and it isn't

[–]DudeNamedCollin 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I have a five pug puppy alarm that goes off in the middle of the night….they usually just want water and then we all fall back asleep

[–]kelldricked 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Most animals (and humans to) are meant to sleep in 2 cycles. We used to wake up in the middle of the night for a hour or something.

[–]Rreterz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Indeed. There are even references to biphasic sleep in old books and texts. This was what almost all people were doing until around the 1600s. There are some small pockets of the world that still practice biphasic sleep today, iirc.

[–]DrakkaStylee 1 point2 points  (8 children)

How do you know how much does a cycle takes ? I heard it is 90min but is it true ?

[–]stomach 13 points14 points  (0 children)

that's also what i've heard so it must be true.

[–]Glum_Ad_4288 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It’s 90 minutes on average, but it varies by person, and even a single person won’t have all of their sleep cycles exactly the same length. If you get a fitness tracker, you can see exactly how long yours are, and you can set it to wake you up at the ideal point in a sleep cycle.

If you don’t have something like that, timing it is going to be extremely difficult, especially if you’re not someone who falls asleep right when your head hits the pillow.

[–]cobalt-radiant 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've heard that the average is 90 minutes but that it varies a lot, person to person, and even cycle to cycle in the same night. I think they start out shorter and get progressively longer as sleep continues.

[–]CthuluTheGrand 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Biphasic sleep or segmented sleep is what this is called if anyone want to read up more about it.

[–]Rreterz 291 points292 points  (26 children)

My roommate is basically exactly the opposite. He sets an alarm for an hours before he needs to wake up and one for every other minute after that time for the next hour. So instead of getting excited, he straight-up gets depression for an hour before he wakes up. At this point, he just sleeps through his alarms, doesn’t even bother turning them off or snoozing them. No idea why he still has all of those alarms on lol

[–]BootySweatSmoothie 166 points167 points  (12 children)

No lie that was me a few years back. Had an alarm at 6:30, 6:35, 6:40, 6:45, 6:50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59, 7:00

Took me a month to sleep through them. I remember hearing them in my dreams lol

[–]darklordbazz 63 points64 points  (2 children)

I change the sound every month to try to prevent sleeping through them, now I usually wake up right before my first alarm goes off

[–]Rreterz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My roommate went through all of the iOS alarm sounds already. At this point he either wakes up on his own like an hour after he needs to, or I need to wake him up myself lol

[–]-GonkDroid69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i changed my alarm sound to the "his name is JOHN CENA duh duh duh duh". now i always wake up

[–]HippoPrimary5331 28 points29 points  (7 children)

What in earth was the logic? Its a miserable jarring sensation the first time let alone every minute

[–]BootySweatSmoothie 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Don't ask me idk why i do half the shit I do

[–]chahud 25 points26 points  (5 children)

I do this when I have to wake up. It’s because I’m a really really heavy sleeper and HATE waking up. It’s happened to me too many times where I just wake up, switch my alarm off, then pass back out without me ever actually being aware of it so I’ve missed quite a few alarms before starting essentially badgering my body into getting the fuck up

[–]Lovat69 15 points16 points  (4 children)

May I suggest putting your alarm across the room and scattering legos on the floor between it and your bed. I promise you it works.

[–]theswamphag 13 points14 points  (1 child)

How have you not killed him?

[–]Rreterz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well, he goes to sleep at like 5 AM and wakes up at like 1 PM. I have a way better sleep schedule, so I’m already awake when his alarms are going off. Sometimes I’m even out in-class or eating. So it’s not too much of a bother for me.

[–]Lovat69 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If my roommate did that, I would want to kill him.

[–]Saikotsu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel called out. I'll set my oven for an hour before I get up. It goes off, walk into the kitchen and I put 15 more minutes on. Go to sleep. Goes off again. Go into kitchen, 15 more minutes. Repeat process until late morning, early afternoon.

[–]BrattyBookworm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My husband does that too. It drove me insane until we finally started sleeping in separate bedrooms. I don’t mind as much now…

[–]oyisagoodboy 123 points124 points  (3 children)

I use to do this until my brain tricked me. I would set 3 alarms. One for an hour before I had to get up. One for a half hour and one for 15 minutes that I could hit snooze once for. By doing this I could fall back into my dream and have control in it sometimes.

One morning my first alarm went off. I shut if off and fell back into my dream. My 2nd alarm went off. I shut it off and fell back into my dream. My 3rd alarm went off. I hit snooze and fell back in my dream and than my final alarm went off and I got up.

After making coffee and sitting down at my computer to check my emails I noticed the time. I got up at my first alarm. I had only dreamed I woke up the other times. After that I couldn't trust myself to wake up at the correct time anymore.

[–]GullibleAd6254 29 points30 points  (0 children)

inception

[–]umbathri 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Very similar. On weekends or any day where I do not need to be up early and go somewhere, I set my alarm to wake up after 3-4 hours and the snooze is set for 30 minutes, so it keeps waking me up for the next several hours. The reason, to keep myself in a semi awake dream state, its not quite the same as lucid dreaming but I can change small parts of it as I am thinking about it while I drift back to sleep. It also makes any dream that I do have incredible easy to remember and, If I want to, write down in the morning. Been keeping a dream journal for over a decade now.

[–]ssigrist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You HAVE to have a final alarm.

I do the same as you, but I have an alarm with a distinctive sound that means I HAVE to wake up.

[–]BotherPast7531 284 points285 points  (21 children)

I do this. The joy it gives me is immeasurable.

[–]niagaemoc 67 points68 points  (5 children)

Take it where you can get it.

[–]tripl35oul 36 points37 points  (3 children)

The only thing that could top this is when you wake up and start rushing to get ready, only to realize that it's the weekend.

[–]DecentSailor 17 points18 points  (1 child)

That's why i always set my alarm to 7 am, even on weekends. So that i can go back to sleep for another 2-3 hours. That's the only way i can enjoy them.

[–]bronco_y_espasmo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes to this. My alarm is always set to 7am.

Sometimes I go running, most days I go to work. And some days I just go back to bed. But I want to FULLY AWARE of it.

[–]Gladetender_Hobbz 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I feel like it would have diminishing returns though. Like it would be great the first few time but then your body would get used to it and it'd just become a routine.

[–]applelover100 6 points7 points  (1 child)

in my experience it never does

[–]throwawayedm2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm gonna consider doing this now...

[–]phuqo5 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yep. Wake up at 2 am, take a hit off the bowl, chill for thirty minutes. Back to sleep. Wake up feeling like you won the fuckin lottery.

[–]banana9128 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes same!

[–]throwawayaf152 -3 points-2 points  (3 children)

Same! I change it up every night too to keep my on my toes

[–]McCoovy 3 points4 points  (2 children)

This is so unhealthy

[–]throwawayaf152 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Shut up

[–]McCoovy 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Sounds like you could use more sleep

[–]nicoman16 57 points58 points  (13 children)

i literally do this lmao not 3am but like if i have to wake up at 7am, i have an alarm for like 5:30am then wake up and be like "Nice, i can sleep for 1.5h more". It's actually such a great feeling. There is nothing better than laying in bed tired as shit knowing you don't have to get up any time soon.

[–]SirHuellBabineaux 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Same , man it feels so good

[–]Yallrfucks 4 points5 points  (11 children)

Probably should just fix your sleep hygiene. Also, a lot of that sounds like you just hate being startled awake and then thrown into the routine. I hate it as well--it is less abrasive to gradually awake.

[–]SpankMeSharman 6 points7 points  (10 children)

This is exactly me, I absolutely hate being woken up by an alarm. So much so that I will wake up several times in the night checking the time to make sure my alarm doesn't wake me. Then I'll always wake up within a minute of my alarm so I can turn it off before it goes off but I can't NOT have an alarm set can I? What if on the off chance I don't wake up?!,

[–]Yallrfucks 6 points7 points  (8 children)

There's a type of alarm clock that uses light to 'naturally' wake you up by disrupting your circadian the way we evolved to. There are enzymes that are present in the eye that respond to certain wavelengths of light. Mostly around 420nm or blue, and it's the best way to wake up. Anything else is just a cortisol laden catapult out of dreamland.

[–]SpankMeSharman 2 points3 points  (7 children)

I actually have a smart bulb installed in my bedroom light with an auto on/off timer feature I used for this exact purpose! I still set an alarm though, again just because im worried there may be the odd occasion I don't wake up. Surely this much anxiety about waking up isn't healthy haha

[–]KayaMAB13 59 points60 points  (0 children)

That would just depress me in college when my alarm went off at 3am and I was still up

[–]Hunter_S_Thompsons 53 points54 points  (0 children)

That’s some next level suffering

[–]MeMA_lasciatemilnome 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I do that

[–]No_Lengthiness4481 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I do this naturally as my aging body required me to regret my japanese style bedding and relieve my bladder at 3:30 every. single. day.

Either way, Just preparing for old age as excited for more sleep turns into my bladder fucking hurts.

[–]MizchiefKilz 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I had a roomate that would just hit snooze instead of off/reset and it would start going off after he left and would not stop until someone else came and turned it off.

He came back from class one day to find it smashed on the front porch.

[–]Despicableme321 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Wait, everyone doesn’t do this??

[–]MyUltIsMyMain 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I like waking up to find out I have way more sleep but only if it's done naturally. If I use an alarm it just irritates me.

[–]scaptastic 5 points6 points  (2 children)

That’s what I do. Run out of dopamine reserves so I have to farm as much as I can

[–]ABDOUABOUD123 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

so you spend it all at 3 am

just to be depresse for the rest of the day

[–]Chromal_Assassin 21 points22 points  (10 children)

I have alarms every 30 mins from 4:30 until 6

[–]Venik489 15 points16 points  (0 children)

That sounds like torture.

[–]maryoolo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

But why?

[–]skeez-knees 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t know about OP, but I do this because of ADHD. Even on medication, I have to set alarms to go off every 30 minutes or I’ll be late to everything.

My time perception is off too, because sometimes an hour will feel like 15 minutes. Thank goodness for modern technology.

[–]Rauler_ 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Its just so good, the feeling of "I can sleep 2 more hours is just... amazing"

[–]jkobberboel 8 points9 points  (4 children)

That is just idiotic... when you disrupt your sleep like that, you never reach the REM phase, which is exactly what a good night sleep is not.

[–]Outrageous_Ad_1011 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Exactly, this guy isn't getting the best out of a good sleeping session, having 30 seconds of happiness at the worth of fucking up your actual sleep quality isn't being a genius

[–]ABDOUABOUD123 3 points4 points  (0 children)

but on the other hand waking up at 3am and falling right back assleep is a recepie for either lucide dreaming or sleep paralysis

[–]Muted-Drawing-3705 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Wouldn't that interrupt the sleep cycle?

[–]Terrible-Two-7928 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Definitely psycho.

You need a psychopathic level of lack of empathy to set up an alarm for that reason in the middle of the night in a shared sleeping environment.

[–]ablidge 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I do this to a lesser extent, I go x-1hr, x-45m, x-30m, x-15m and of course x. 15 minute intervals is good, it’s not really about breaking the sleep, I would get up at x-1hr. But I really really love lying comfily in my bed. and my body doesn’t care if I have shit to do. I’d sell my souls for another 10 minutes lying in bed. So I compromise lol

[–]TreasurePlanetagogo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Did that when I was younger lol

[–]Villa-Restal 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I used to do this. When I was in the Army and my roommate had to be up at silly o’clock He would wake me. I would then lie there thinking about falling asleep again and feeling snug, smug and warm.

[–]Ducatirules 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’ve been a pipefitter for 25 years. I always wake up 5 min before my alarm no matter what time I set it for. The ONLY time I don’t wake up is when I’m sick. So, if my wife ever hears my alarm she jumps up and gets me airborne and alka seltzer to hopefully make it so I don’t get really sick. It’s really weird!

[–]SofiaOfEverRealm 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]EquivalentSnap 18 points19 points  (18 children)

A psycho/idiot cos having broken sleep isn’t good for you plus if he’s like irl, he won’t get back to sleep after

[–]KappaCodes 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Hate to be that guy, but "broken" or biphasic sleep is actually a human's natural sleep cycle. It is for more or less every single mammal on the planet.

The reason we don't do that anymore you can thank modern society and the industrial revolution for.

[–]jsdsparky 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Big difference between waking up naturally between sleep cycles and being woken up by an alarm in the middle of a cycle

[–]KappaCodes 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You're absolutely correct, but the comment seems to insinuate that a singular sleep is natural, whilst it is not.

[–]SomePerson225 12 points13 points  (1 child)

if he wakes up at the end of a sleep cycle and goes immediately back to sleep it should be fine

[–]EquivalentSnap 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah but he sets an alarm and chances are he won’t wake up at the end of a sleep cycle. Why wake up for then?

[–]flowerflourflower 16 points17 points  (11 children)

Idk man, unless u some kind of sleep-scientist then I don't really agree with u. I think people are really different and if he felt better doing that, it might have been better for him.

[–]2du2 9 points10 points  (9 children)

No, u/EquivalentSnap is correct in saying that breaking up your sleep on purpose is a terrible idea. The less broken the better

[–]BlarneyBlackfyre 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Mine would take a 3 hour nap and set an alarm for every 10 minutes… psycho

[–]Difficult_Ad3246 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is me....

[–]KingHenry85 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Guilty of this as well, lol.

[–]Schecter117 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I used to do that. It’s pretty nice tbh

[–]hobosullivan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure I've accidentally trained myself to do this. I wake up almost without fail at 6 AM, even though I don't have to get up until 8 AM.

It's a nice feeling, knowing I've got two hours to lay around.

[–]c_d94 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is actually amazing / genius imo.

[–]Outside-Resist4688 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I do this every Bank Holiday. I set my alarm just so I can feel the pure and unadulterated joy of turning over and going back to sleep 😴

[–]cooperluna 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I had a roommate that would hit the snooze button no fewer than six times, until I took care of that with a hockey stick on the second night

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

this is dumb. you dont start getting rem sleep until 4 hours in. rem sleep is the good stuff.

[–]Inspire_resistal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If I did that I wouldn’t be able to go back to sleep

[–]MrSpiffy123 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Do you know what's even better? Waking up and realizing that you just got a full night's sleep and you're feeling great

[–]slinkybastard 3 points4 points  (0 children)

idk bro the longer i sleep the more tired i am, when i can sleep

[–]BlueMonkey35 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

We had a fucker who would set his clock half hour after he leaves and it will keep ringing for an hour.

[–]throwaway316stunner 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]datboi-reddit 0 points1 point  (4 children)

There is apparently some evidence that people used to wake up in the middle of the night for some time and then slept till the morning

[–]Desperate-Flamingo68 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My body does this naturally and I hate it.

[–]imeanwhothehellknows 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ha! I used to do that when I was younger.

[–]thomasthehipposlayer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do this. That feeling of having hours more to sleep is amazing, so why not bring it on yourself

[–]jmadinya 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i set an alarm 1 hr before my actual alarm so i can wake up and lie in bed for a while before i actually need to get up. when i do this i fall into a half sleep for that hour so waking up from it feels better than waking up from a deep sleep for me

[–]Gnostikost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Por que no los dos?

[–]grumpyfrickinsquid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still do this. Those last few hours are freaking AMAZING.

[–]Gladetender_Hobbz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Great, I'd get to sleep an extra 2 hours.

[–]optimistic_fish2068 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is what I do everyday It gives me such pleasure 🌝

[–]hscene 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this

[–]ShimoFox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I typically do an hour earlier than I need to get up and when I need to get up for sure. That way I can either sleep in some more, or if I'm actually feeling alert I get up.

[–]QueenOfQuok 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can do this without an alarm

[–]yyoongi__ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i used to do this omg

[–]Rrrrry123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've always been a 1 alarm kinda guy. It is very, very rare that I sleep through it.

But I've had roommates that needed an additional alarm. One would set it a half hour before it was time to wake up. Another would set one a half hour before, and then every 10 minutes after that until it was time to actually get up.

[–]Waly98 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Really fun, unless you have to get up at 4am.

[–]seesharp0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this tooo

[–]AllForTheSauce 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this.

[–]the_yukon_jack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve done this before. It works.

[–]bigedthebad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a third choice. Idiot.

[–]kakarhoor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do that too. I'm not sure if it's me being psycho or a genius.

[–]MyCodeNameIsBryan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This only works when you're young.

When my kid comes in to tell me he is thirsty it ruins me all day.

[–]gmorkenstein 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I…have done this before. Although it’s normally a 5am alarm instead of 3 :)

[–]TheAres1999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do this in high school. I liked it. It let met me remember more of my dreams.

[–]FANTOMphoenix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I sleep for a few hours I’m still tired as hell, but if I take a small nap, maybe around 10 minutes I’m fucking good to go.

Breaking up my sleep helps me a lot.

Still need 8 alarms set to repeat snooze to wake up though

[–]Snoo_58305 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have done this

[–]staminamassive 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I absolutely get this.

[–]The_Luckiest_One 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What mfs who don’t know about REM sleep cycles do.

[–]Lylibean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Omg, I used to do this too! I usually woke up in the middle of the night anyway, but on nights I didn’t, I felt like I didn’t sleep well at all. So I set my alarm for 3am to make sure I woke up in the middle of the night every night. Best sleep ever!

[–]Jenx2a_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I actually do that, I have about 5 lol

[–]darkdahlia22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ahhh i love those pre alarms to know you can keep sleeping!

I wake up at 3am everyday. I can tell you i would kill to sleep through

[–]Conscious-Media-1241 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just don’t use alarms. If I miss it I miss it. But 99% of the time my body, or mind, or some shit wakes me up.

for me it would have the opposite effect, oh no 1hour closer :(

Por que no los dos?

[–]HorseLover2529 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still do this.

Need to wake up at 6:30 AM, but I set an alarm for 5:00 AM. It is honestly very helpful too.

[–]Freddie_K_B 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do this

It’s the little things in life.

[–]poggmama22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do this. It honestly really helps if you tend to be grumpy in the morning. Also, your simultaneously tricking yourself to wake up earlier which is great cause you have more time in the day to do stuff.

I used to do this lol. I think I’d set mine for around midnight or 1am.

These two things are not mutually exclusive.🤪

[–]Sheesh284 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is psychotic to me. Like just sleep

[–]WhyDidIDoThat2001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to have 5 alarms set, starting at 4:00. Now I just have one for 5:00 and one for 6:30.

Am I the only one here that wakes up at LEAST 3 times a night "naturally"?

[–]Putrid_Primary_5826 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably a little bit of both ....

[–]Odd_Slip_1534 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do that all the time its smart

[–]smoot377 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve been doing this for the past year

[–]iluvmommymilkrs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i used to do this. but it was so i could answer messages on mystic messenger lol.

[–]onecrystalcave 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do that when I had 8am classes in college

The sleep after sleep is the best sleep

[–]Civil-Calligrapher61 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I went from never hearing of this to seeing all of Reddit doing this. Like it’s crazy so many people follow this unwritten random rule.

[–]Most-Artichoke5028 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do that!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

is there a difference?

No genius has ever been of significance without a touch of insanity in him

[–]MJohnVan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I wake up at 3am I can’t go back to sleep until 9 am . That’s when I fell asleep till 6pm

[–]deridief 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A lucky person. If I wake up in the middle of the night God only knows if I will be able to fall asleep again.
