When I was younger, my alarm sat beside my bed, and every morning I awoke to the sounds of the radio. This went on for several years, and I’m sure most of you reading this also used to wake up to the radio.
Up until the time of smart phones, the radio was a common method of waking up. It went without thought, you’d wake up, lay in bed and listen to the radio for a while until you finally had to roll out of bed. I can’t speak for everyone, but I haven’t woken up to the radio in years.
Months ago I conducted a very non-scientific poll regarding what people do first thing in the morning…not surprisingly, “check my phone” was seen over and over again.
Many people, myself included, do not have an actual alarm clock anymore, we simply use the feature on our phones.
