Your alarm goes off. You reassess what time you really need to get out of bed that you decided the night before, and sleepily paw at your alarm clock until you find the snooze button. It only buys you a few more minutes, but boy howdy, are those some sweet, sweet minutes. The problem is that you usually feel worse after hitting snooze than when you first woke up. So is the snooze alarm really doing you any favors? It is not, and AsapSCIENCE explains why you should just wake up without hitting snooze.
In defense of the snooze button though, those few extra minutes between snooze alarms have been some of the best, most peaceful times of my life. I don’t know that I’m willing to give those up, even if it does mean being more awake during day.
