On workdays, I set my phone alarm for 22:00. My work shifts start at midnight so 22:00 gives me plenty of time to wake up, shower, get dressed, and leave for work without having to rush at all.
I usually wake up before the alarm anyway, so it’s more of a fail-safe than a requirement.
I never use the snooze function. When the alarm goes off, I usually get up immediately; or if I don’t, I rely on staying awake because the alarm usually scares me awake and I don’t want to be scared repeatedly.
On non-workdays, I set the alarm based on whatever plans I have for the day. Still no snooze button, though.
What time is your alarm clock set for? Do you use the snooze button?
