A wise man once said, you snooze, you lose.
Though that claim applies universally in a general sense -- much like "the early bird gets the worm" -- scientific data has now proved that snoozing is, in fact, making us lose.
When people hit the snooze button on their alarm clocks early in the morning, they often do so to salvage the last few minutes of sleep before they are forced to get out of bed. We all do it, because nothing is worse than being woken up by that infernal ringing noise at 6 a.m. while it's still dark outside. So we hit snooze, and try to milk some more time under the covers.
But studies show that hitting the snooze button actually makes the eventual wake up -- when the alarm goes off again -- that much worse. When we hit the snooze, we're plunging our brains back into the beginning of the sleep cycle, which is the worst point to be woken up. The harder we feel it is for us to wake up, the worse we think we've slept, according to research published in the New Yorker.
The Reel Life knows full well how disappointing it is to run out of "snooze time." It's arguably worse than simply waking when the alarm initially goes off, as the data indicates.
Oh well -- we're still probably going to hit the snooze. It's just a reflex at this point. A sad, miserable reflex.
