What time do you wake up in the morning?
What time do you wake up in the morning? According to the latest study from our friends over at CV-Library, one in three (35.2%) Brits who consider themselves as ‘successful’ wake up at 5.30am, with a further 37.4% stating that they get just 6.5 hours sleep a night.
The study of 2,000 UK professionals found that only 13.9% of Brits get the recommend eight hours of sleep per night, with one in 10 (12.5%) they wake up at 4.30am every day. They went on to ask respondents what they like to do with their time before work, with a successful person’s morning routine including the following:
- Catching up on emails (42.5%)
- Reading the latest news (32.1%)
- Scheduling the day ahead (31.1%)
- Spending time with loved ones (23%)
- Checking social media (21.5%)
- Walking the dog (12%)
- Working out (11.2%)
- Networking over coffee (10.8%)
- Texting their partner (7.9%)
- Meditating (6.6%)
Fascinatingly, over half (53.3%) of Brits think that waking up early doesn’t actually benefit your career. However, 56.7% of 18-24-year olds think it is beneficial, with three-quarters (70.6%) believing that it makes them more alert and 67.7% stating that it allows them to get ahead with their work
Alongside this, the younger generation are most likely to get a solid 7.5 hours sleep per night (36.7%), while 55-64-year olds most commonly get 6.5 hours sleep.
