When you’re tired or haven’t been sleeping well, the best feeling is to get extra time to lounge in bed. It’s always great to sleep in when you don’t have to wake up at a specific time. Whether it’s a few more minutes or an hour or two, getting more rest in your comfy bed is such a great feeling.

Our lives are so busy and we always seem to be on a schedule. So it’s a real treat to not have something to do and just lie in bed for as long as you like. When you do finally feel like you’re ready to begin your day, you feel more relaxed and ready to get things done.

Jessica tells Gary about how she’s been sleeping in more often. Find out more in today’s English lesson about using the snooze button.

Gary:  So, you’ve been sleeping in more?

Jessica:  I have been sleeping in more. I used to be an early morning person. And now I just like to lounge and lay in bed. It’s so comfy.

Gary:  I guess I wake up with the sun. I’m an early riser.

Jessica:  Are you?

Gary:  And also, I’m such a light sleeper.

Jessica:  Oh, really?

Gary:  If our neighbors are making any noise, I’ll actually wake up to it. So, if they’re making breakfast, my mind just says, “Hey, get up! It’s time to go eat!”

Jessica:  I wish I could just wake up when I saw the sun or heard noises outside. I got in the habit of hitting snooze too many times. And then I’m usually groggy if I do get up too early.

Gary:  So the bed is a bit of a refuge for you from the world?

Jessica:  Exactly. Yes.

Gary:  It’s nice to escape. I’ve had a hard time sleeping in. I’ve actually tried. And I just can’t do it.

Jessica:  I’ll give you some pointers.

Jessica has started to sleep in more often. Her bed is just so comfy and it’s a great feeling to keep sleeping in the morning. Sometimes she does wish that she could wake up a little earlier, but getting more sleep just feels so nice that she’s trying to get Gary to sleep in more often.

Gary says that he’s a light sleeper and can’t sleep in. When he hears his neighbors making breakfast, it wakes him. He’s an early riser and usually gets up with the sun. He tells Jessica that he’s tried to sleep in, but woke up anyway.

Do you like sleeping in? How often do you use the snooze button?

I like sleeping in but can’t really do it often if there’s not enough time for me. And I prefer being early than being late. I prefer taking my time going to work than rushing.

a2020, it sounds awful! How do you manage to sleep in using the snooze button more than five times every day? If I was you, I would rather sleep more time in the evening :)

Probably I’m one of those people who are just terrible in waking up. I always want to sleep in but I have to wake up early everyday. And this is the worst part: if I want to get up, I have to use a lot of snooze button. For example when I must woke up at 6:30 I’m starting to mental preparing to wake up by using a lot of snooze, usually started by 5:15 am. My boyfriend will probably dump me… or kill me… or both.

Hello friends, have you noticed I wasn’t online yesterday? Well, I tried to sleep in. But I am an early riser like Gary. And I don’t know if it’s good or bad. It’s been a hard day today, so I’m going to bed earlier. If you’ll see me on Ebaby after 10 P.M. please send me away :D


P.S. Using the snooze button is masochism. I used it once (twice… no… three or four times repeatedly maybe and then had to get up and hurry to work)

Well, because I’m a heavy sleeper, I don’t wake up that easily. I prefer keeping in my comfy bed, especially in winter, it becomes very hard to leave a refuge like your bed when it’s cold before the noon :)), Unless you have to do it.


I always set my mobile alarm before I go sleep, but it never woke me up. My family, they keep waking me up every time the alarm rings, and I just get up to hit the snooze and go back sleeping in again.


I hate it, I really hate being this lazy person me, but I feel like my timing is adjusted to 10 AM and ahead. Even when I go sleep early in night, I don’t get up early :(


Gary, I envy you, just keep like that and don’t listen to Jessica :)) I wish I can be an early riser just like you.

I use snooze button many times. I just like returning bed after waking up. It’s just an amazing feeling.


Do you know what the best feeling is? Waking up at night and realizing you have hours to sleep before your alarm clock rings. This is just feeling like in heaven. And the worst feeling is to wake up at night and looking your watch with a hope to return to bed but then realize it’s almost the time to get up… Oh, what a big disappointment.

 I’m defenitely an early riser. From 10:30 p.m I feel so groggy that not even two or three cups of coffee can shake my falling asleep off. On the contrary, the coffee at this time is the best sleeping pill for me ( don’t experiment, please :)) And it doesn’t take me long to sit down with a book at this time when I’m drifted away to heaven. But in the morning, my cat beats me in early hours of waking up. At 5:30, my alarm clock behind the door—mew, mew asking for food. So, after he has eaten, he goes jump into my bed, set himself comfortably besides and from alarm clock he turns into a snooze button. He purrs spreading a comfy sleeping energy and you drift away again, for another half hour.

Sleeping is very important and obligatory for everyone! But the limit time of sleeping should be respected because more sleeping can causes some health trouble.
