Half of Americans still wish their parents would wake them up in the morning, according to new research. The survey of 2,000 Americans delved into all things sleep and found it’s no surprise we miss our childhood mornings – as waking up can be kind of a drag. It seems people are just too cozy to get out of bed on time, with 49 percent of those surveyed pinpointing their late starts on just being too comfortable in their beds.
The survey found while most have switched to the convenience of smartphones, just under a quarter of Americans still opt for an old-school alarm clock. It takes Americans an average of 24 minutes to actually get out of bed and start the day – after two alarms and hitting snooze twice. And in order to combat these groggy, snoozing habits, respondents shared they change their alarm times an average of 38 times a year.
