Who likes a good snooze?

Recommended Posts

Everyday I feel ready and proper for a snooze. When's your favorite time to snooze?

 

I'd say my time to snooze is mid-afternoon or early evening.

 

(and yes I'm well aware that if I "snooze," I "lose.")

I nap at least three times per week because of my work schedule, in the afternoon when I get home.

 

When you say "snooze", I thought you meant snooze buttons, which I feel very strongly are a scourge on humanity. If you have the option to sleep later, just set your alarm later. An additional 15-20 min of not-quite-sleep doesn't do me any good.

My favorite time to snooze is after midnight, most of the time i snooze in front of my monitors and i enjoy this feeling i have when i snooze. Snoozing is the best, falling asleep is like shit (crosstopic with weird dreams).

This. Also, when I was living in a dormitory environment, there were always 'those' people, who had 10-15 alarms, all 5-10 mins. apart. 

I genuinely don't see what could be gained from repeatedly sleeping 5 mins, bookmarked by the loudest alarms ever. Furthermore, everyone else can hear that, too. It's damn annoying.

My sleep schedule is garbage in every sense of the word, and there are times when I don't even sleep for whatever reason. So no idea.

Snooze buttons work for me because despite being blessed to be able to get a good night's rest I lack the motivation to get out of bed as soon as the alarm rings on work days. Snoozing lets me light sleep a bit more and when the alarm rings again I know I have to get out of bed or else I'm fucked - simply setting the alarm later would not give that sense of urgency for me (believe me, I've tried).

I'm definitely those people. What's gained is that it allows me to make my appointments on time instead of sleeping through them. Different things work for different people differently, I suppose. I even set multiple alarms for events when I'm fully awake because I have a tendency to become absorbed in the current activity and have difficulty breaking away from it.

It always takes me more than an hour to fall asleep. Usually 1-3 hours depending on how nervous i am. Drunk, tired, doesn't matter. Napping is impossible for me. I've been trying sedative pills for the last month - no change except I started seeing dreams every day, which is kinda cool, at least it gives something to just lay and waste hours waiting for. The worst dream is, if not worse than reality, at least less boring.

Alarm clocks - either zero or one, no need for more. Sometimes i can hit the snooze button by accident if motor functions show up before the consciousness, but by the time it retriggers (5min?), I'm usually intact, and the retriggered alarm catches me by surprise.

I hate going to sleep, sleeping feels like lost time, until I actually am asleep and then hell yeah shit is great.

 

I am the same. Trying to be a bit more sensible about it these days and get around 7 hours a night. If I could get away with not sleeping and not, you know, die, I would.

When I have a day or so off, sure.

When I accidentally fall asleep for a few hours and wake up in the middle of a night when I have college in a few hours? Worst goddamn feeling.

Snoozing rocks.  Sometimes it's good to just relax and vibe out, sometimes it's a crutch.  I like pillows and fabric and soft things a bit too much and the psycho-somatic things they provide, sometimes to a fault.  Sometimes I accidentally vibe so hard that I start melding with the Fabric of the Universe itself and become some sort of cosmic Snorlax temporarily.  

 

Snooze responsibly, everyone.

I'll have you know I snore like a freight train. And I love to snooze every chance I get...during the day anyway. This is meant to be humorous btw.

sleep when you're unemployed as shit is like, the final boss of existing. It's like a shitty horror enemy. It always creeps up on you, no matter what you do, and it always comes when you just don't want it to. Never at 8pm, always at 3am. I can lie in bed and wait for it as long as I like, toss and turn in a half-medidative state for literally three hours without even so much considering getting up to use the bathroom and never even daring to think about picking up my phone, but it just doesn't come until 4am when it's far too late to sleep and still expect to awake at 6am.

Snoozing is great! When you mean to do it and not just nod off wake up to lost time you didn't want to lose.
