Hitting the snooze button on your alarm is bad for your health says study

We've all be guilty of hitting snooze on the alarm from time to time... For some people it's a daily thing! But a new study from Sleep Clinic Services has revealed that getting a few extra minutes shut eye may actually be doing you more harm than good.

Basically, when we wake up and go straight back to sleep we confuse both our body and our brain, which isn't good for either.

"Waking up feeling refreshed after a great night’s sleep is something we all dream of," the sleep expert says.

"However, most of us are making common mistakes that are preventing us from getting top quality rest – making us more likely to wake up heavy headed rather than fresh faced."

"We’ve all been guilty of pressing ‘snooze’ on our alarms to give us those precious 10 more minutes in bed."

"However, by dozing off for those extra minutes, we’re preparing our bodies for another sleep cycle, which is then quickly interrupted – causing us to feel fatigued for the rest of the day that lies ahead."

Even though it might be hard, getting out of the habit of snoozing might be helpful in making you feel more energised throughout the rest of the day.
