This short video probably confirms what many of you already know — hitting the snooze button often makes you feel worse than if you had never used it. Why? Well, as this video explains, hitting the snooze button restarts your sleep cycle and can put you into an even deeper sleep pattern than before, making you feel even more tired and groggy when you finally get out of bed.
Instead of hitting snooze to get those few extra minutes of sleep, try setting your original alarm later. Even better, stick to a consistent sleeping schedule so that your body naturally gets used to waking up at the same every day, including weekends. In a few weeks time, you'll discover the snooze button won't be as tempting as before.
