A new survey reports that most Americans first think of money and work when they wake up in the morning—56-percent of men and 48-percent of women, respectively. And those thoughts might be influencing more than just your sleep schedule. According to the survey, people who woke up thinking about work and money were less likely to hit snooze on their alarms. What’s more, the peak salary ($46,000) was associated with a 5 a.m. wake-up time, while those who woke up at 6 a.m. reported higher job satisfaction and an average salary of about $41,000.
