More than once this week I’ve woken up before my alarm clock. I’m talking 10-20 minutes earlier than the alarm setting.
Not 5 minutes.
Not 30 minutes.
That gawd-awful time frame that is too short to lay back down and fall back asleep, and it’s too long of time frame because you could very well just fall back to sleep to be jarred awake by the actual alarm clock.
I’m not sure what’s worse? Taking the chance, laying back down and being jarred awake… or just getting up and losing out on that 10-20 minutes of needed sleep. I’ve made both choices.. and they both sort of stink… LOL
Does anyone else regret fighting ‘nap time’ as a kid?
