would you/ do you trust your body’s natural time clock to wake you up for work? (ex no alarm)

I am usually awake by 7 but idk if i trust myself for that to happen when it comes to work days even though it really is everyday that i wake up at that time.

That’s interesting, I am sure many people are the same but in this world dictated by a 24 hour clock you just don’t get the chance to find out[@1066684,Bad4U]

I worked shift work for 40 years.

I have no idea what normal sleep is.

I have never used an alarm clock

Oh yes, I'd consistently go to sleep around the same time so my body clock would wake me.
These days my cat is my alarm.

we just got a new kitty last year. I’m so thankful he sleeps till we wake up [@1192169,blueque]

[@778935,ThriftStore] Aww, yes. That's so nice of him. In my cat's defense I made the mistake of feeding her [b][i][u] ONE TIME[/u][/i][/b] in the early morning. So it's now the new breakfast time.

With work from home, where I don't need to wake up at dark o'clock to get ready and out the door before traffic? I can trust it fairly reliably.

Any earlier than that? Hell no.

I wish I needed an alarm. I usually get up for work around 6am. My body wakes up around 4:15 to 5:30am.

stress? [@337992,Kindheartedguy]

[@778935,ThriftStore] I think it's genetics. My mom was the same way.

I haven't set an alarm for years. I really don't need it.
HouseOfCards · 46-50, F
[@14020,FeetAreFantastic] really? never slept in by accident?
FeetAreFantastic · 41-45, MVIP
[@778935,ThriftStore] nope. But even if I did it wouldn't matter much. My work times are flexible and I have to work from home anyways
Powderflask · 26-30, M
Yes. I’m usually up at 4:30 whether it’s a workday or not
summersong · F
I always set an alarm but I’m almost always awake before it goes off.

I'm usual alert before my alarm, not always.
