Oh! finy, does not the illumination keep you awake? According to scientific(?) research, we should sleep in a completely darkened room! I have to drape a folded tea towel over my 'set-top box' & 'VCR' or their light & clock would keep me awake, as straight opposite me! Lol!
Oh! Bryony, if I wake during the night & look at the clock to do as you do, it 'jinx's' me, & I can't get back to sleep, so I'll toss & turn for x hours, then the alarm will ring, & I feel as if I haven't slept a wink!
This is when I was working, but now I rarely need to set an alarm, so it doesn't matter that much anymore! Cheers!
No. Although I sometimes find I want to know the time if I wake up during the night, most of the time as I lie awake staring at a clock as the night ticks away, I panic I won't get enough sleep. So no clocks, and you know, I sleep much better than when I used to have one in my room. Now, if I really want to know, I just go into the next room and check the time there.
I used to keep my phone next to my bed, but no longer do. If we are not supposed to dispose of our phones in the ordinary garbage because they contain toxic chemicals, just imagine what they do sitting next to your head!
I used to have3 a clock on my bedside table,but now I have one about 5 feet away,where I can still see the time if I need to! I don't when this clock placement changed,and I do not mind it a bit.There is more room for my stash of gorgeous books!!
Almost. I have a project vision clock that displays the time in big print on the ceiling. That way I don't have to do gymnastics in the bed to be able to get myself in to a position to see what time it is !
Yes, digital clock. It's always by my bed. It's alarm as well, which sometimes I ignore!
With my clocks around the house, including VCR ones, I can always check what time it is, in convenient 24 hour mode!
I hate not being able to check the time!
Yes, I have to have a digital clock next to the bed on the off-chance I wake up in the night. The 'light' from it is so minimal it doesn't affect me at all. Though strangely I prefer red numbers rather than the pale blue/green that is also available. I CANNOT sleep with a ticking clock in the room - that drives me completely insane!
Yes, I have 1 on the right side of the bed, & 1 on the left side, just in case the battery runs out out on 1, in the middle of the night. I used to have a little 1 that the Blood Bank gave me years & years ago, but that has now been moved into another bedroom, & I just have my 2 white ones now. My 2nd white 1 was given to me as a present, from a friend, when I happen to have mentioned the battery had run out on my bedside clock!!!
I do have an electric clock near my bed but have taught myself not to look at it during waking hours. One of the things the sleep apnea support group taught me was that if you wake and look at the clock, your mind tells you how many hours you have to go before you "wake up" and that's not healthy. I do however look at it when my cat taps me on the shoulder to tell me she wants to go outside and estimate what time she will want to come back inside so I doze until she taps my bedroom shutters to come in again.
