When 6 a.m. hits, are you waking up, just going to sleep or somewhere in between?
While being an early riser or late sleeper can be a defining daily habit — whether that’s due to a personal choice or routine responsibilities — Daylight Savings Time can really affect you if it doesn’t align with your lifestyle.
So, what’s the breakdown on attitudes toward Daylight Savings?
It turns out 56% of people are not fans of DST. In fact, 73% of respondents would eliminate the time switch altogether. During DST, 53% of respondents said they felt like they had more time every day.
Most people, 55% to be exact, consider themselves to be night owls with productivity peaking in the evenings.
Despite the preference for nighttime, it turns out 78% of people wake up before 7am — whether by choice or necessity. Over 99% percent of people make it out of bed before noon.
Whether out of necessity or not, does a morning-centric routine work for most people? When it comes to productivity, 44% of people do feel most productive in the mornings.
