One in Six People Say They Feel Stressed the Minute They Wake Up
In some commercials, the process of getting up in the morning looks bright and happy . . . with the person waking up and smelling the air like they’re at a coastal Italian villa, and striding across the bedroom like they’re walking on clouds.
In reality, waking up for some people is . . . well . . . a horrible experience.
In a new poll, one in six people say they feel stressed the moment they wake up . . . and the average person says they need to be awake for an average of 33 minutes before “feeling human.”
Part of that could be the alarm. 51% of people say they deliberately use an “aggressively loud” alarm because they’re so tired in the morning . . . and 66% say they sleep through the first alarm at least twice a week.
Most people say they struggle with sleepiness when they first get up, and need something to start the day . . . like a shower, breakfast, a cup of coffee, or even simply brushing their teeth, or splashing water on their face.
More adventurous people immediately want to meditate . . . hit the gym . . . take the dog for a walk, or clean the kitchen.
