I sleep in about 30 mins to 1.5 hours on weekend, but I also go to bed later...

I know I should have a constant sleep time, but I am not ready to start bowing out of hanging out with friends at 10:30 to go to sleep!

I do sleep in on weekends, but only by around an hour. I've found that it doesn't mess up my sleep schedule very much. I used to sleep in by many, many hours when I was more sleep deprived. Yikes!

Wake time is between 7 and 7:30am. I don't want to waste a minute of the weekend.

I absolutely sleep in on weekends. But by about 30 min, so I figure it doesn't do too much damage!

It seems as if other SP have given you the tip I had on the alarm clock. I put it across the room. I did this for the first 5-6 weeks and then I found that I was able to wake up just before the alarm went off so now I do not use the alarm clock at all.
Best wishes for your success. emoticon just not the snooze button.

No reallly I saw it on some tv thing, and in a magazine. I think it was invented by a college student with the problem of missing classes. Well hope to talk again, and also hope your sleep goes well, bye for now emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sorry the only other thig I saw a clock that rolls around, yes really that way it's never in the same place so you can't do that. Maybe for Christmas from Santa. Still wishing you the best emoticon

Yeah, I've done that too. Lol! Now I keep my alarm in the bathroom and it seems to work well for me this way.

Regarding the Snooze Button - It's across the room from my bed; I get up - hit snooze and crawl right back into bed, LOL :)

I started out by keeping to going to bed at the same time nightly.
In the beginning I would toss and turn.
After a week or so I found myself falling asleep quickly and sleeping very well.
I prefer not to awaken with an alarm blaring so tried to awake on my own.
After a few weeks it became a habit.
Bedtime is 11:00pm and awaken between 7:00am and 7:30am.
I so appreciate all that SP has to offer.
It has truly given me the opportunity to create a healthier and happier life.

Just trying to see how many people wake up at the same time EVERY DAY (including weekends, or off days from work?)... I'm pretty consistent on the work days, but have a hard time not sleeping in a couple of extra hours on the weekends? Suggestions, thoughts?

Also... anyone have good advice on how not to utilize the snooze button? :)
