  • Your body clock is trained/getting used to waking up around that time if you've had your alarm set for that specific time for a while.

  • Same thing happens to me. Your body is trained to wake you up at that time.

  • if you've been waking up around that time everyday, then ur sleep clock might be adjusting to the alarm time. quite normal.

  • I do this too. I never hear my alarm go off, I always wake up early. I sometimes want to see if I can do it without actually setting an alarm.

  • Your brain got used to waking up at this time so it sent signals to your hypothalamus gland, triggering it to release hormones that help you wake up.

  • Your brain is subconsciously telling you to wake up. I do that for big events.

  • The same way your pet always knows when it's feeding time even though it can't read a clock... Your internal (biological) clock has gotten used to the routine.

  • You have an internal biological clock of course. This is how people woke up for millennium before alarm clocks. Time to go hunt, time to work etc.

  • I always do this too... or like seconds before the phone/doorbell rings. It's freakily bizzare.

  • The circadean rhythm attempts to align itself to when you generally wake up, I think.
