To snooze or not to snooze

To+snooze+or+not+to+snooze

Is hitting the snooze button really as bad as they say it is? Most people believe that when you wake up to hit the snooze button,then continuing to sleep for an extra 30 minutes disrupts your sleep causing you to be tired for the rest of the day. Is this statement true though?

According to nbcnews.com,” The top reason for choosing to snooze rather than have an unbroken stretch of sleep was that a person couldn’t wake up or was too tired. The next two most common reasons were that snoozing feels good and that it allows a person to wake up more slowly or “softly.” Snoozing for even 5 more minutes will not hurt you considering you’re going into a light sleep, not a deep sleep. In fact, it allows your body and brain to wake up even more knowing that you are going to get up in a matter of minutes.

It states in the article, “Snoozers, rejoice: Here’s why hitting that little button might be beneficial, “Among the 1,732 adults who filled out a questionnaire about their waking habits in the morning, 69% said they hit the snooze button at least sometimes, especially on weekdays. Many, 60%, said they “most often” or “always” fell asleep between alarms, the result being that, on average, snoozers got just a little less sleep.” In a sense, it’s good to wake up once the alarm rings, but it will not hurt your sleep quality if you decide to snooze. The poll proves that the snooze button is popular among people, young or old ,no harm is brought to them. As long as you don’t sleep through your alarm, you’ll have a restful day ahead of you.
