1 in 4 Brit couples argue over snooze button and getting up in morning

London, Fri, 17 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 17 (ANI): The average Briton spends 29 minutes each morning on snooze in winter, compared to just 17 minutes in summer, a survey has found.

 

More than one in four couples report arguing over the snooze button and when it really is time to crawl out of bed.

 

The study, by Sheilas' Wheels home insurance, found that 27 per cent of couples admits arguing over the snooze button, with 28 per cent rowing the night before over what time to actually set the alarm.

 

An average person in Britain sets the alarm for 6.47am, but doesn't get up until 7.12am. He or she spends just over an hour getting ready before leaving the house at 8.14am.

 

The study found that those under 25 years of age spent an average 40 minutes snoozing, which steadily drops to 25 minutes by the time they reach the age of 45

 

One in three said they put the alarm out of reach to force themselves up, and one in ten set three or more alarms.

 

"Scheduling in snooze time not only denies your body much needed rest, but is also a common source of arguments at home, which is the worst way to start off a day," the Daily Mail quoted Jacky Brown, of Shielas' Wheels, as saying.

 

"It's important that people train themselves to 'get up and go' as then you are less likely to make a careless mistake, like forgetting to switch off an electrical appliance or leaving yourself vulnerable to burglars by not locking the front door properly as you rush out," Brown said.

 

The study found those aged under 25 spent an average 40 minutes snoozing, which steadily drops to 25 minutes by the time we reach 45.

 

Those under 25 were also the most likely to sleep straight through their alarm with one in five (21 per cent) admitting to doing it regularly.

 

People in the East Midlands were first out of bed at 6.50am, while those in the West Midlands do not get out of bed until 7.25am.
